About Me

I have been working specifically with couples and individuals, empowering their dating, relationships and sex lives for over a decade. My work as a sex (and sex-positive) 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, sex workers, ethnic minorities, and issues around sexual orientation. I am also a published author, and a nationally recognized sex and relationship expert as well.

Currently, I consult with people all over via Skype and online platforms. I think BetterHelp is a unique platform which allows for daily email exchanges, which supports the healing process while allowing people to discover (or re-discover) their voice through writing, which can be incredibly cathartic. I also provide education and counseling towards breaking the myths and molds which surround our hetero-normative, and monogamous-normative society, and which may contribute to hold us back and prevent us from expressing our true potential. I also have extensive experience working with depression, anxiety, trauma, and PTSD around religion and sex.

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:

Sex Therapy
Relationship Concerns
Polyamory, Non Monogamy
LGBTQ
Transgender, Agender, Non-Binary
Infidelity
Sexual Trauma
Fear of Intimacy
Lack of Sexual Desire, Problems with Arousal
Feelings of Guilt, Fear, Anxiety around Sex
Uncertainty About Sexual Orientation or Gender
Sex Addiction
Emotional Love Addictions
Career Changes
Divorce
Religious Trauma with Sexuality

I am a California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist - #MCF44134. I have a Bachelor's of Arts in Clinical Psychology, emphasis in Human Sexuality from San Francisco State University, and Master of Art's degree from Pepperdine University, in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am licensed by the California Board of Behavioral Science.

I have been an activist and an advocate for sexual freedom for many years. I'm a member of AASECT (American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists) and KAP (Kink Aware Professionals). I create sex-positive media and edcuational materials. I am also a musician and filmmaker.
I look forward to working with you.

Moushumi is responsive, attentive, and full of calm and positive energy and listens and makes you think, in a good way! Part coach, part therapist, it is easy to be comfortable around her and work through whatever is on your mind.

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.

Written by R.E. on May 17, 2017 after counseling with Moushumi for 3 weeks on issues concerning anger

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!

Written by T.I on Dec 16, 2016 after counseling with Moushumi for 2 weeks on issues concerning lgbt, relationship, family, grief, and sleeping

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....

Written by V.I on Dec 14, 2016 after counseling with Moushumi for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, lgbt, and trauma and abuse

I've been very happy with my therapy so far, and I feel like I was matched to the perfect therapist for my situation.

Written by K.E on Dec 08, 2016 after counseling with Moushumi for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship, and intimacy-related

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.

Written by V.I on Nov 28, 2016 after counseling with Moushumi for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, lgbt, intimacy-related, and self esteem

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.

Written by A.D on Nov 28, 2016 after counseling with Moushumi for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship, trauma and abuse, sleeping, self esteem, and career

Moushumi has been very helpful and understanding about my situation. She asks many questions that make me think deeply about my current situation.

Written by P.A on Apr 26, 2016 after counseling with Moushumi for 2 days on issues concerning stress, anxiety, intimacy-related, self esteem, and depression

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.
