She is a Sex Therapist who guides clients through how to build strong, healthy connections with those around them.

Therapy with Kamisha is nonjudgmental, transparent, and direct. Kamisha works with clients to grow their self-awareness, including the ability to reflect on their thoughts and feelings and better understand their emotions. She also teaches her clients and those in relationships to communicate in clear, effective ways that respect boundaries. For individuals who have a hard time enjoying sex or intimacy, Kamisha utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help them move past the difficult thought patterns that inhibit pleasure.

Kamisha earned her Master’s degree from the University of La Verne.
