Resources

I want to provide you with some of the resources that I recommend to some of my clients.  Up top are Book Resources and as you scoll down, I give you location of meetings for various sexual questions and meetings, so make sure you scoll down! In the Books Resources, you can click on any of the pictures of the books, and each picture will take you to Amazon for further information and so you can buy it there if you’d like.
