We all understand that “Therapy Never Includes Sex.” But we don’t often understand how to respond to a client’s sexual attraction to us, the therapist.

  • What happens when a client falls in love with you?
  • How do you understand the clinical significance of a client’s sexual desire for you?
  • How do you hold the powerful and potentially volatile dynamics of Eros, the God of Love, in the therapy room?

Erotic transference often creates chaos and confusion, excitement and fear, for therapist and client alike. We will explore this topic through the lens of the archetypal, making way for a deeper understanding of this very human impulse to connect. We will consider the healing possibility of love and sexual desire in the clinical relationship as we attempt to increase our comfort with this topic.
