Dr. Sarah Melancon, Ph.D
Clinical Sexologist, Ph.D
Sarah Melancon, Ph.D is a Sociologist and Clinical Sexologist. Growing up with severe social phobia and a communication disorder called selective mutism, Sarah was equally fascinated and confused by human relationships – ESPECIALLY sexual relations.
Her research spans the fields of sociology, psychology, sexology, trauma and neurobiology. Sarah believes that while our sexual desires can be a path to greater intimacy and connection, they also reveal our deepest fears, hopes, dreams and traumas that we keep hidden in the shadows. By cultivating awareness, learning self-compassion and healing the underlying traumas endemic to modern society, our most hidden corners of shame can become our greatest sources of power to create the authentic, loving and pleasure-filled relationships we truly deserve.
