About me

About Mylènemoi.4.2015

Sex Therapist & Relationship Expert

I am a Clinical Sexologist who, since 1996, has helped over 1000 clients resolve their sex and relationship issues through sex therapy. While my work as a sex therapist began in Montreal, I’m now based in Moncton, N.B. and offer counselling sessions in person in my Moncton office and via Skype or the telephone to others in the Maritime provinces and Canada.

By providing accurate sex and relationship information, support and guidance, I help both individuals and couples build healthier and more satisfying sex and love lives.

I am honored to have access to the sexual confidences and concerns of the courageous people who come to see me. I am fully aware of how awkward it is for most to share intimate personal details about their sex life. I make it a priority to make you feel comfortable and safe as you explore your concerns with me.

We all have the right to sexual intimacy and pleasure. So by passing on science-based knowledge and sex-positive attitudes to my clients, I take pleasure in knowing that I do my part in fighting the ignorance, insecurity and fear that can prevent people from enjoying healthy and fulfilling sex and love lives.
