Intimacy…allowing ourselves to be vulnerable with another person, can be very difficult. Many of us have used alcohol or other substances to help remove our fears intimacy so the thought of being intimate while SOBER can be terrifying. Some of us were sexually abused as children. Some of us engaged in unhealthy sexual behaviors as a result of our substance abuse and still hang onto feelings of shame about our sexuality. Some of us were afraid of getting sober because we thought it would be the end of our intimate relationship with our partner. Some of us simply find it hard to let go. On the other hand, some of us have foundintimacy to be much more fulfilling and, well…intimate in sobriety. We are thrilled to have a very special guest, Tanya Cole-Lesnick, LCSW, life coach and psychotherapist, to help us with this topic. We have four guests joining us on the show to share their experiences with intimacy in sobriety and Tanya will offer insights based on her experience with this topic. Tanya Cole-Lesnick, LCSW, is a life coach and psychotherapist since 1995, in private practice since 2000.
