Thaina Cordero, MS

Clinical Sexology, PhD Candidate

I specialize in topics related to relationships, sexuality, emotions, communication, and changing behaviors. I support clients who want to understand themselves and why they do the things they do, strengthen their relationships, communicate better, manage their emotions, create or break habits, and/or have more pleasure in their sex life. Whether your goals are relational or personal, I am here to support you!

Many of my clients present with a variety of concerns related to sexual desire, erectile issues, kink/BDSM exploration, difficulties reaching orgasm, pain during sexual encounters, and out-of-control sexual behavior (sex addiction or porn addiction) and more!

I’ve worked with clients from all paths of life. I know it may be hard to share your struggles with others. We will always go at your pace! My role is to hold space for you to feel it is safe to explore all aspects of your life, history, and yourself. I’m sex positive, LGBTQ+ affirming, and welcome neurodiversity. I am bilingual (Spanish/English).

Clinical Sexology FAQs

Green Light Ray

What is the difference between you and a therapist?

Therapist have specific requirements and guidelines based on the states where they practice. Under the oversight of federal and state ethical and legal boards, they provide mental health assessments and treatment for a range of psychiatric conditions, encompassing depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, as well as trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I practice ethically within my field, yet there is no legal oversight. There is no stand-alone licensure for Clinical Sexology. Choosing between a general mental health counselor, a sex therapist, or to work with me, really depends on your reasons to seek service.

Do you take insurance?

No, I do not take insurance and my services are not eligible for out-of-network reimbursement.

Can you help me with…?

One of the most difficult part is finding someone who you’re confident in their ability to support you in whatever you’re going through. The answer to this question is very nuanced and the best way to find out may be to have an initial session or a quick phone consultation.

Green Light Ray

Can I talk about…?

The most likely answer is: Yes! This is a time and space for you (and/or your relationship). I start most first-time sessions with: Where would you like to start today? You pick the pace, the goals, the topics…

How often should we meet?

The frequency is up to you! You might want to consider practical things (such as budget, schedule, motivations. and goals) and your own personality (how detailed are you when telling a story, how often you want to have potentially ‘hard’ conversations, etcetera).
