A Surrogate Partner Therapist teaches clients sensual and sexual touch, breathing techniques, relaxation skills and sensate focus by taking them through various exercises and experiences.  Trained and certified by the International Professional Surrogates Association, Tamar’s work always involves the ongoing participation and supervision of a licensed mental health professional to work effectively in a therapeutic team with the client.  Ethical guidelines established by the International Professional Surrogates Association (IPSA) are followed at all times and clients must be seeing a therapist/counselor before starting sex surrogacy work. 

 Surrogate partner therapy can be powerful and life transforming–and Tamar’s approach reflects her sincere care for helping people in a truly impactful way.  Her philosophy on surrogacy is that the client benefits by focusing on the here and now, leaving unproductive sexual thought processes behind. Additionally, responding to the physical body helps overcome other difficulties clients may be experiencing in their lives.  Leaving the talk therapy to the therapist and dealing specifically with the body work, the triadic relationship enables clients to positively process their experience with maximum support.  Because this work is very intimate and intense, Tamar only works with licensed psychologists, psychotherapists, MFTs and sex therapists.  Through thorough, specific support, the client receives maximum help and understanding.  The goal of the therapy is to understand and resolve whatever is inhibiting a person’s sexual success–so the client doesn’t have to spend another day living with pain, fear or sexual discomfort.
