Books, projects, and The Healing Group

“This is a longer quote from Kristin or maybe a quote by someone about what it's like to work with Kristin like maybe Doug Fabrizio or some other semi-reconizable personality with something to say.” – Doug Fabrizio

A light sense of humor for audiences

“This quote is so endearing, I bet I could even say 'vagina' and you wouldn't flinch!” – Kristin Hodson

Kristin's approachable personality helps break sexuality into easily digestible pieces that empower people to develop their sexual identity, hone sexual values, and improve communication.
