Fantastic!

I grew up Christian and am bisexual, being married to an opposite-gendered spouse and having two young children. I’m so grateful for Dr. Moali’s positivity and affirmations. She creates a safe place for us who have experienced so much shame. She is there to educate us and equip us, sexually, on so many stimulating topics. Thank you, Dr. Moali!
