The 4-D Network
We are a community of professionals dedicated to helping our clients access the healing and power they need to experience new depths of self-esteem, pleasure, and erotic connection.
We are dedicated to supporting each other on a path of professional mastery through training, collaboration, and the promotion of each other’s’ work
At the heart of our approach to sexuality therapy and counseling is the engaging and innovative Four-Dimensional Wheel of Sexual Experience. This serves as an interactive map that guides us to explore the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of our own sexual issues as well as our clients'–including desire, pleasure, pain, intimacy, trauma, dysfunction, and much more. Supporting the 4-D approach are a series of books and online courses, including the award winning: Expanding the Practice of Sex Therapy.
The 4-D Wheel can be incorporated into any kind of work you are already doing with clients, whether or not you are a sex therapist or sex counselor. Practitioners who have successfully incorporated this sex counseling approach into their practices include therapists, psychologists, counselors, coaches, teachers, physicians, nurses, and other health providers.
Working with the Wheel is a unique approach that can help you to help your clients move out of stuck places, cultivate the nurturing relationships they wish for, and discover the joys of pleasure, intimacy, and passion in their sexual partnerships.
