AASECT CERTIFIED SEX THERAPIST
Licensed Marriage Family Therapist
AASECT SEX THERAPY SUPERVISOR
Hello…I’m Jacqueline Mendez!
I’m a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist, AASECT Certified Sex Therapist & Supervisor, and a relationship & intimacy expert. I help adults and partners integrate body, heart, mind and spirit by supporting them in creating open-hearted communication, holistic healing, and unearthing their authentic sexual selves.
I also help high-profile entrepreneurs/professionals, therapists and other healing arts practitioners learn to manage the stresses of leadership and improve their relationships at work and in their personal lives.
Practicing as an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist
As a clinician, Jacqueline guides her clients through body movement, heart-centered techniques, psychology, and spirituality to align body-heart-mind-spirit.
Her passion is bringing more freedom, acceptance, and empowerment through education and inquiry. Her focus is inspiring others to create extraordinary lives, deeper intimacy, and experience greater sexual freedom and expression.
One of her greatest joys is being of service to the Latinx and Spanish-speaking community. Her goal is to help breakdown taboos, misinformation, and transforming rigid male-female sexuality stereotypes. She has done this through segments on Telemundo, Univision, and radio.
Jacqueline is a sought out contributor and speaker on television, radio, print, and other news media such as The New York Times, Bustle, Refinery 29, Insider, Business Insider, Hip Latina, Motion Picture Television Fund, among others.
Her sweet spot is the intersection of sexuality, sensuality, and spirituality. She is a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist (California), an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist and Supervisor, and Transformational Life & Business Coach. She is also a Practitioner of 4-D Medicine Wheel and of the Nonlinear Movement.
Her mentor and teacher Gina Ogden is one of her greatest influences with her concept on the integration of spirituality and sexuality through her creation of the Four-Dimensional Wheel and the Four-Dimensional Network (4-dnetwork.com). She also has studied for many years and has completed teachers training under the Michaela Boehm, a lineage holder in Kashmir Shaivism Tantra.
Through her years in service, Jacqueline has integrated the Four-Dimensional Wheel approach with Body-Focused, Movement, Spiritual Psychology, and Tantra, Mind-Body connection, Sexual Yoga techniques, the Interplay of Masculine & Feminine Energy (Polarity), Sex Therapy, Nonlinear Movement Method, and Shamanic practices to serve her clients and those she mentors.
As a supervisor & mentor, Jacqueline believes that working in the sex and sexuality field is a heart calling. She uses her decades of clinical work to support clinicians learn and practice innovative & integrative skills while developing their own unique manner of serving their clients.
Jacqueline uses embodiment techniques and concept of the Person of the Therapist as tools that serves as a guide for building an effective bridge between the personal and technical aspects of therapy in supervision. Clinical supervision can then emphasize the purposeful utilization of self-in the moment—both flaws and strengths —in the therapeutic relationship in combination with the technical interventions with clients.
