I have been working with couples and individuals, empowering their relationships and sex lives for over a decade. My work as a sex therapist focuses on developing stronger communication, a better understanding and awareness of our desires, driving forces, and developing a deeper connection between mind and body. I work to help people break down shame and guilt and feel more positive, and to develop healthier attitudes around sex, and sexuality. I deal with relationship issues, non monogamy and polyamory, and all dating concerns. I specialize in alternative lifestyles, modern relationships, creative expression, LGBTQ, kink, poly, sexual/social minorities, gender issues, and issues around sexual orientation. I am also a published author, and a nationally recognized sex and relationship expert as well.
Currently, I coach and consult with people worldwide helping creative people discover (or rediscover) their passion and their voice through writing. I also provide education and counseling towards breaking the myths and molds which surround our hetero-normative, and monogamous society, and have a tendency to hold us back and prevent us from expressing our true potential. I also have extensive experience working with depression, anxiety, trauma, and PTSD.
I feel that all things are interconnected. Our relationships cannot be healed unless we look at ourselves and vice versa. Our psychological experiences will have an affect on our bodies.
Some issues I can help you with might include:
Fear of Intimacy
Lack of Sexual Desire, Problems with Arousal
Feelings of Guilt, Fear, Anxiety around Sex
Uncertainty About your Sexual Orientation or Gender
Emotional Love Addictions
Polyamory, Open-Relationships, Non-Monogamy
Dealing with Illness

Moushoumi is an experienced, open minded, and trustworthy counselor. She uses CBT methods to break negative thought patterns. She asks good questions or comments to support me.
Moushimi has expertise and sensitivity which could very well change your life for the better. Right questions, right phrasing, right emotional insight - you don't get this without years of caring practice. Moushimi has clearly lived her work and it shows. You won't regret counseling with her.
Got to give props to Moushumi Ghose. She has been a pillar of patient listening. As she has "peeled a few layers" away to get to the heart of things with me, Moushumi has demonstrated an open, positive, and intellectual demeanor with her questions that has made it easy for me to open up. Best of all she is a very positive!
Moushumi is reflecting one very good. She is helpful for my situation. She cares a lot about me as a patient whenever I need her.
Upon our first conversation, I immediately felt like she understood me and offered up great advise and tips on my issues. She checks in and always gives prompt responses.
Moushumi Ghose has been a wonderful counselor for me. She is patient and kind and very knowledgeable. She helped me through a very difficult time and has taught me techniques to help me manage my anxiety and stress.
Really happy to find someone that specializes in specific issues that I need help with.
I've had a really positive experience so far.
Moushumi was very patient and helped me to see things differently.
This has been great! I knew I would be too emotional to discuss some of my concerns and "issues" with someone face to face. Moushumi makes me feel open to say what I need without judgement. The pairing with her has been perfect for me...
Thank you! I'm learning a lot....
I've been very happy with my therapy so far, and I feel like I was matched to the perfect therapist for my situation.
Talking with Mou has been very therapeutic for me. I've recently gone through a divorce and I've started exploring my sexuality out of the bounds of a traditional monogamous relationship. She has been very nonjudgmental and supportive of me, which is something that I appreciated very much, and yet Mou made sure that I'm safe and honest with my partners. She also wrote some amazing books, which makes me proud to be talking with her online.
Very, very helpful. I doubted her ability to help me online, but she always has something more to say no matter how much I ramble.
Moushumi has been very helpful and understanding about my situation. She asks many questions that make me think deeply about my current situation.
Moushumi is a very tactful and skilled counselor. She takes time to explain and guide through difficult moments. I feel like working with her really helped me.
