Guest Biography: 

BIO:  I am Anadel Baughn Barbour, with 12 years of experience working with people in recovery from substances and negative behaviors.  I am a Marriage and Family Therapist Intern and am [being certified as] a Sex Coach.  My other modes of practice include Mindfulness Meditation, Level 2 Reike Healing, Narrative Therapy and I have some training in Hypnotherapy.  

I chose Mental Health as a career due to my own struggles with addiction.  The road of sobriety had many challenges and having overcome most of them, I wanted to help others.  I chose to add Sex Coaching to my practice because the need is tremendous.   Sex, sexuality and intimacy were areas that most people sought help for and which were sorely underrepresented in my Mental Health Training and Education.  My own sex and intimacy concerns led me to find my own path to a healthy sexual ideal for myself.   It was a tough journey.  It was hard to find a therapist who dealt with normalizing sexual issues.  Sexuality was ignored as a subject to embrace and improve upon if one wanted.  

I finally found fulfillment doing my own work and research.  Liberation from the bondage of confusion, shame and guilt about sex and sexuality was the result.   I discovered just how normal I was and that I could live by my own values.  I was able to take full ownership of my Powerful Sexual Energy. Having found a healthy attitude towards sex, my whole life changed, and I had a sense of well-being.  I call my journey FLOW (Fulfillment, Liberation,
Ownership, Well-Being). 

I would love to share it with everyone!
