Surrogate partner therapy is a somatic form of therapy designed to increase a client’s capacity for emotional and physical intimacy. It was developed by Masters and Johnson in the 1970s and uses evidence-based research to overcome challenges related to intimacy, touch, and sexuality. The client forms a therapeutic relationship with the surrogate partner to develop the skills to form a relationship with a partner out in the real world. The therapy proceeds at a pace friendly to each client’s needs. This experiential learning is divided into phases designed to build self-awareness and resolve deeply-ingrained issues surrounding relationships, intimacy, and sexuality. Emily works with a supervising licensed therapist and accepts clients of all genders, sexual orientations, and relationship modalities.
