Hi there folks! Erika Miley here and I want to just introduce myself a bit.
I'm the owner and Clinical Director my group practice, The Center for Mental and Sexual Health as well as the host of Sex Talk with Erika Miley. I started my career as clinical mental health therapist, working with adolescents to adults who struggle with sexuality and the myriad of things that affect it such as body image, relationships issues, anxiety, ADHD, depression, and many others.
I primarily see professional women who work in intense jobs such as management, technology, software, research, and media. They tend to have to manage family structures, complex work dynamics, and how all of that impacts their sex lives. I've helped couples in monogamous and non-monogamous relationships discover healthy sex lives by learning to hold healthy boundaries, set rules of war, and discover their sexual preferences.
My practice strives to be all inclusive to anyone seeking help. My therapists and I are kink friendly, pro-LGBTQ+, and supporters of our colleagues and clients of color. We work hard to create safe environments for our clients to express themselves and feel heard while working through their toughest challenges.
While my group practice, The Center for Mental and Sexual Health is founded in Florida, we see clients who reside in Florida, Washington, Maine, and Expats all over the world.
Education is important to me as I've worked hard to change my stars with it. I earned my Master's of Education in Clinical Mental Health from Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington. (I started there when it was still Whitworth College and hold two Bachelor's diplomas with both names, how cool is that!) I'm currently working on my dissertation for my PhD in Sexology from the Modern Sex Therapy Institute.
My career has taken me to really interesting areas of mental health, from working with sex offenders in a prison, dual-diagnosis clients in public agencies, and my own private practice where I see a wide range of colors, creeds, gender identities, and sexual preferences.
