Dr. Laurie Bennett-Cook
Sexual Educator, Surrogate Partner Therapist, and Counselor; Coach; Lecturer; Group Facilitator in Long Beach, California
Welcoming and affirming of all gender identities, all sexual orientations, all sexual and relationship expressions.
Over the years, and in addition to required course work, I have purposely exposed myself to many sexual situations which many in our society would find controversial. It is my belief that experiential learning, first hand exposure, and direct conversation offer the greatest understanding of others.
As a Sexologist, a large part of my job is to be a sex enabler. I assist others in achieving the level of sexual function they desire. I enjoy the study and research of not only what people are doing sexually, but how they feel about it.
In addition to seeing clients in my office or via skype, I am the chapter lead for the group Sex Positive Los Angeles (SPLA). We have a member base of over 2,000 and offer sexual education and support programs throughout Los Angeles County. I am also a member of the Chinese Sexological Association and organize educational presentations and events here in the United States as well as in China. Rounding off my work, I am an IPSA certified Surrogate Partner Therapist working with clients and therapists in a triadic model to assist in bringing clients comfortable with their sexual selves.
