George Turner, certified sex therapist, speaks at PFLAG: Coming Out: A Journey of Worthiness

George Turner, LSCSW/LCSW, certified sex therapist at Turner Professional Group, ( will present Coming Out: A Journey of Worthiness at the next PFLAG program on Oct. 9, 3pm at Village Presbyterian Church. Coming Out is a life-changing and life-long journey that begins when you first realize that you are gay, lesbian bisexual, or transgender… and utter the possibility of being LGBT to yourself. The act of coming out of the closet is not a single event but rather has many acts; and it is also a journey that our straight allies travel. For allies, coming out and defending LGBT persons can be just as difficult.

George shares that learning to live OUT is a process often clouded with shame. Removing that mask of shame and giving voice to your true authentic self is often traveled in incremental steps forward with painful retreats backwards. George will explore how coming out is but one journey that is essentially the universal search for worthiness; a desire to be valued, respected and loved! Participants both LGBT persons and their allies will learn about the coming out process; and most importantly both seasoned travelers and those just beginning their journey will enrich their journey by learning how to better deal with the unique challenges faced in their adventure.

George is a leading sexual health consultant, educator and clinician. He works with both couples and individuals in the areas of relationship enhancement, sexual health and personal wellness. George has
developed a spa-like, holistic wellness center where leading therapists, trainers and consultants guide clients to design personal and professional growth. Additionally, his team provides consultation to school districts and non-profits on topics such as: diversity, team building, and strategic plan-ning. George’s expertise in comprehensive, positive sexuality allows him to help people with diverse issues such as: infertility, erection dysfunction, painful intercourse, premature ejaculation, coming out, fantasy negotiations, menopause, and infidelity.

George welcomes the PFLAG family to take advantage of a FREE phone consultation. You can contact him or his team at: 816.931.8255 or by email: His office located on the Plaza/ Westport area is convenient to the entire metro area.

Spiritual Makeovers: Turner Professional Group partners with new practitioner, Carrah Quigley

We want to extend a very warm 'welcome' to Carrah Quigley. She now offices at TPG and offers a unique and fascinating new service, 'Spiritual Makeovers'. With her fire-red hair, penchant for fashion, and what my Mom use to describe as the 'gift of gab', Carrah is a warm and charismatic spirit who immediately places a person at ease. Somewhere between a hip gal next door and a spiritual facilitator, Carrah seems to be that perfect balance of a listener and guide.

Our patients are unique and complicated people. We strive to honor and incorporate the religious beliefs and spiritual practices of our patients. Adding Carrah's speciality as a religious expert and spiritual leader fits our holistic health model and will benefit our patients immensely. For many of our patients their belief system is a critical part of their life, celebrating that aspect of our patients just makes sense. I see Carrah helping clients who come to TPG for therapy but struggle with aspects of their 'religion of origin'... that religious teaching from their youth. Though they may not practice their faith, patients of ours can have painful leftovers or misinformation about their faith that hinders their wellness journey.

Carrah Quigley,
Spiritual Counselor &
Life Coach
Since the age of 17, Carrah has explored the different religions of the world and how they deeply inform personal faith. Throughout her travels and experience in different religious environments she has accumulated a wealth of knowledge both academic and personal. As a spiritual counselor devoted to helping others, she aides others in creating a spiritual life that is fulfilling and uniquely crafted to meet their personal needs, what she calls, “Spiritual Makeovers.” Over the last ten years, her awareness has also turned to helping those inflicted with spiritual wounds. With her academic knowledge and intuitive counseling she provides a deeper understanding of how to heal wounds without abandoning faith. She holds a Masterʼs Degree, with distinction, in Ecumenics from Trinity College Dublin, Ireland and a Bachelorʼs in Religious Studies from University of Arizona. She studied at Union Theological Seminary in New York and completed graduate courses in the History of Islam and Christianity at UMKC and Conflict Resolution Studies in Belfast, Northern Ireland. She is currently studying to become a Certified Spiritual Counselor through the American Institute of Health Care Professionals.

Services Include:
  • Crafting a Personal Spiritual Practice
  • Deepening your already existing faith
  • Healing from Spiritual Wounds
  • Re-imagining the God image
  • Learning how to Meditate
  • Forgiving & Finding Closure
  • Inquiring about other faiths & God
  • Negotiating blended faiths

Circumcision: Could You Be Dulling Future Sexual Pleasure?

Why is circumcision such a hot topic in today's Parenting Circles...
two words: Foreskin Restoration@
Recently a patient walked in wanting to discuss 'Foreskin Restoration'. Essentially he was grieving the loss of his foreskin. He had a "cut" penis... meaning he had no foreskin. He was exploring methods to restore this part of his genetalia. Part of his therapy request was also focused on anger towards his parents for "mutalating his manhood" (his words), negotiating this journey with his sexual partner and becoming more educated about it himself. In short, he had lots of things on his plate that most likey were never considered by his parents. But this has become a much more 'talked about' topic for parents today. Its even making the news.

Our own therapist, Lisa Meyers, recently shared some of her own journey towards understanding this topic. She shared, "Parents, educate yourselves, talk about it, and make an informed choice for your boy children. I will never forget when I learned that my brother and his then wife were choosing not to circumcise my nephew. At the time I remember asking how they came to that decision and not really understanding why they would not want him to look like everyone else. Seven years and much education later for me, I am so glad they stuck to their choice for him despite pressure from most people around them. I was misinformed. I had bought into the societal stereotype that penises MUST look a certain way. Plain and simple, I was wrong. But dont take my word... check out a recent article on the topic."

Jessica Kramer states, "Conversations about circumcision are really important. As I strongly recommend women become fully informed when pregnant and giving birth - that they fully understand the implication of all the choices they make - I strongly recommend parents do the same with regard to circumcision." Her recent blog on Betty Dodson's website offers some additional interesting points for your considertation.

TEN of the Best Things You Can Do for Your Sexual Self (at Any Age)

Burlesque at the Zoo Bar, Lincoln, NE
Recently Lisa and I visited a Burlesque show in Lincoln, NE at The Zoo Bar. We loved it! It was such a positive expression of women. Real women of every size and shape strutting thier erotic self to thier own music. Powerful to see, but even more powerful if you live it!

But how do you find that elusive sense of sexual pride and confidence? Wheres that little pill that makes you not afraid of sex in the light, or the nudist beach? How do you learn to love yourself, your body and sex without shame, nor guilt? Well like most of life the answer is NOT in a little pill nor is it a destination. Here are a few tips to ponder along the journey...

1. Be your own your first partner, before anyone else.
2. Learn to talk openly about sex.
3. Be honest. For real.
4. Ditch the drama. Save it for the movies.
5. Use and trust your own best judgment.
6. Respect your body and yourself.
7. Honor your feelings, even when it's a bummer.
8. Be your whole self, not just your sexual self.
9. Further your sexual education.
10. Enjoy yourself and your sexuality.

Let Your Erotic Flag Fly

As a holistic practice we explore and honer our patients, religious and spiritual journeys. Often our patients share thier experience with some sort of disconnect with their faith; sometimes this is in relation to past sexual trauma or sexual dysfunction. Other times it is difficulty connecting thier understanding of a divine OTHER and a healthy expression of thier sexualtiy. This can be due to a lifetime of messages based on guilt and shame. Exploring a person's beliefs and values is essential to a balanced and integrative sexuality. Turner Professional Group has invited guest blogger, Carrah Quigley, to share her insight and expertise as a guest blogger on spirituality. 

Lately, I have been thinking about poet, Audre Lorde and her understanding of what the word erotic meant: “When I speak of the erotic, then, I speak of it as an assertion of the lifeforce of women; of that creative energy empowered, the knowledge and use of which we are now reclaiming in our language, our history, our dancing, our work, our lives.” Audre’s understanding of the erotic had nothing to do with pornography or overt sexuality. It had to do with “lifeforce,” that slight electrical charge we have when we are centered, empowered and content. I also believe that this is not exclusively for women, but for all people to experience. The erotic, as defined here, is about taking your full self out into the world with confidence - the kind of empowerment which inspires others.
Maccu Picchu, Peru
As a spiritual counselor, Carrah aides others increating a spiritual life that is fulfilling and uniquely crafted to meet their personal needs,what she calls, “Spiritual Makeovers.” Over the last ten years, her awareness has alsoturned to helping those inflicted with spiritual wounds. With her academic knowledgeand intuitive counseling she provides a deeper understanding of how to heal wounds without abandoning faith. She holds a Master's Degreewith distinction, in Ecumenics from Trinity College Dublin, Ireland and a Bachelor's in Religious Studies from University of Arizona. She studied at Union Theological Seminary in New York and completed graduate courses in the History of Islam and Christianity at UMKC and Conflict Resolution Studies in Belfast, Northern Ireland. She is currently studying to become a Certified Spiritual Counselor through the American Institute of Health Care Professionals .
There are subtle ways in which we shut down parts of ourselves when we enter certain environments. We may feel that people will only accept parts of who we are - that if they knew the “real” us or the “whole” story they would reject us or judge us. If we believe we are to fracture ourselves into sex life - business life - married life - parent life - son/daughter life, then how will we ever feel whole? Why do we invest so heavily in believing we will be shunned rather than expecting to be embraced?
What would happen if we connected together all of our separate selves and lived as full beings with our electric “lifeforce?” With nothing to hide and nothing to keep secret, would we be less stressed, less confined and more available to those around us? What is holding us back from living with “erotic power,” as Audre Lorde defines it? What would happen if we refused to hide and lived with all of our quirks and burps on the outside, readily available for view?
I believe this form of keeping secrets, fracturing, leads to distortion and destruction in our lives. Whatever it is that we hide or conceal from others is in direct proportion to how much we hide (or wish to hide) from our own consciousness. It is not so much that people will reject us, but that we have already rejected parts of who we are ourselves. I move that we begin to take small risks in opening these parts up to our friends and family; to move fully and boldly through the world without the exhausting methods of concealment and secrecy.

To conclude, I will once again refer to Miss Lorde and her wisdom, “Another important way in which the erotic connection functions is the open and fearless underlining of my capacity for joy. In the way my body stretches to music and opens into response, hearkening to its deepest rhythms, so every level upon which I sense also opens to the erotically satisfying experience, whether it is dancing, building a book- case, writing a poem, examining an idea.” Amen, Audre. May we all have the courage to fully express our fullest selves and to embrace our life force, to touch others and get that chain reaction total acceptance spread around the world. Joy is waiting.

- Carrah

Lisa Meyers, sex therapist, visits the Big Apple and meets Betty Dodson sexolgist pioneer

I recently went to New Your City to visit with one of the biggies in the sexology world, Betty Dodson, PhD. I had the opportunity to invite several human sexuality classmates from Widener University as well as my 77 year old cousin who is experiencing a rebirth of her own sexuality as a senior. We spent two and a half hours in the space where Betty has conducted individual sex coaching and her body sex workshops for the past 25 years. It was thrilling to talk with her about our field, the strides toward positive sexuality and pleasure, as well as how far we still have to go. I will never forget her telling us not to be afraid to “break the rules” and get people the help they need to enjoy sexual health and wellness!

I asked the others if they would be interested in contributing their own experiences of this day as guest bloggers, and here is the first entry from my friend, Rebecca:

Left to right:
Rebecca, Lisa Meyers, Kim, Kira,
Betty Dodson, PhD, Jina, Ben
Recently, I had the utmost honor of sitting at the feet of one of my heroes. This was easy to do, not only because she had floor pillows laid in an intentional yet comfortable circle, but because her doors were open and she was incredibly welcoming. When you've given as many people orgasms as 82 year-old pleasure-activist Betty Dodson has, you can really take a day off here and there. But Dodson and her business partner Carlin Ross don't seem to have any intention of slowing down their pace. The two of them regaled us with stories about male ego-stroking, giggled over throwing "whore" signs to one another, classified 70 as the new youth of old age, and casually discussed talking to google about getting a new "sex education" search term together so that education-seekers didn't get lumped in with the porn-seekers. It was a sunny living room brimmed with potential and a strange sort of familiarity and I never wanted our two-hours to be up. Yet, even when it was, leaving felt natural, as if hugging a friend you would soon get coffee with again. The visit, organized by Lisa Meyers of Turner Professional Group, was an inspiring chance to see the bravada of a women who has never stopped doing it her way; the kind of woman I strive to be and remain.

How do you raise GREAT men?

"Little boys dont cry!", "Man up!", "Be a big boy!"... STRIKE these shaming messages from your vocabulary! Why would we want to raise emotionally damaged or stunted men? Give your boys a healthy balance and teach them to tap into thier emotions. Their future partners will thank you for a a lover who has a rich range of expression and a deep capacity for communicaiton.

On this morning's Today Show, they offered Five Tips on HOW to raise boys to become GREAT men:

  1. How are you feeling? We are more apt to ask girls how they are feeling. Get in the habit of asking boys the same to help them explore their emotion. Giving boys a toolbox of emotions beyond 'anger' is an important parenting task.
  2. Expand Empathy. Encourage your boys to read fiction and ask them to report on what happens to the charater. Research shows that tracking this develops empathy. Also, playing the "What IF game" helps. To play the game, note a person like a ball player under stress and ask your boy, "How would that preasure make you feel?"
  3. Strengthen Sense of Self. Dont use the label, "Boys will be boys", because it gives boys a negative label and sets expectations low for boys to use as an excuse for bad behavior. Furthermore, praise EFFORTS not just talents. Let boys know that you are proud of thier time spent studying and practicing, not just for winning!
  4. Model Respect: Boys will pattern their respect of others after parents demonstration. Show them 'real world' examples of respect for others. Remember to 'walk the walk'!
  5. Show Affection: Recognize that as youth age they may pull away from the 'mom smooches', but timing is important. So dont remove all they affection, but just learn 'when' and 'how much' to shower on your lil' man.

Parents Coming Out to Their Kids

Parents who come after having kids often need additional support. Here are few resources:
Parents 'coming out' to thier kids may be challenging for some.

"The first thing to note is that it is really terrific that you are taking time to consider how to sensitively approach coming out to your kids.* Here at COLAGE we have found that as children, we really want to know the truth about our parents’ sexual orientation, and usually we have some idea before you even tell us! But just because we want to know doesn’t mean that we always are thrilled about the situation, especially initially. It can signify a big change in the family, especially when accompanied with all the transitions that come with a divorce or break-up. Here are some tips to keep in mind that might help:
It’s never too early to come out to your child/ren. Kids understand love. What they don’t understand is deception or hiding. And it’s never too late to come out to your child. COLAGE has met folks in their forties whose parents are just now coming out to them. A lot of mysteries are being solved, and missing puzzle pieces falling into place for these families. Often knowing the truth will be a relief for kids of all ages.

1. Tell your child/ren in a private space where the conversation can’t be overheard and will be completely confidential. Telling them at your regular Saturday night dinner at your favorite restaurant will be overwhelming."

RE-Discovering Sexuality: Post Stroke

TPG’s own Lisa Meyers, LSCSW/LCSW/CST, recently facilitated a support group for young survivors at the American Stroke Foundation. The group members were engaging and wanted to learn more about sexual expectations post stroke, how to keep sexuality alive and interesting, and how to get a partner’s interest in sex to increase.

Lisa often uses Barry McCarthy's "Good Enough Sex Model" while talking with people about finding a healthy sexual life, but it is especially relative for people in rehabilitation or those living with chronic illness. "Helping people re-discover pleasure is at the core of my work, and vital for couples who have experience traumatic illness or medical issues", stated Meyers. "They need a break from all the work, doctors and grief. Connecting with your partner and your own sexuality is a return to a quality life."

Jean Brogan, KU practicum student and ASF intern stated: “I had to share that the next day (after your presentation) I ran a group at ASF.  We used the wipe board and purposefully left the pleasure wheel drawing on the board.  Questions came about and we all chimed in that it was a wonderful meeting.  One person kept staring at it smiling and occasionally would say "Boy, I missed something good"!  We all concurred.”

Lube 101

Many women experience vaginal dryness, especially as they age. It can take women longer to become moist, causing sexual play to be uncomfortable or painful. Men also can benefit from the sensations offered from a lube. A favorite lube on the nightstand can help make sex play a little more enjoyable.

According to the CENTER FOR SEXUAL HEALTH at the University of Michigan, " adequate lubrication is an important part of positive sexual interaction." While the most readily accessible lubricant is human saliva, some people find that they need the aid of commercially available lube. It is important to note that some lubes have 'glycerin', which has been shown to increase the production of yeast and irritation in the vagina for some women. NOT FUN!!!

The wonderful world of lubes has a vast array of types and purposes. Water-based lubes are for use with condoms, since oil based lubes will cause tears....Oppps! However, water based lubes can dry out very quickly. For longer sex play you may want to try silicone lubes. But remember, DONT mix silicone lubes with silicone sex toys, it can cause the silicone in sex toys to deteriorate. Bummer! Theres lube specifcally for anal play, sex toys, personal masturbation and penis/ vagina intercourse So make it a mission ...a sexual adventure to try them all.

Sex Facts: Your Sexual Health Consultant Takes On Common Questions

Unfortunately, most of us got little sex education as youth and the bit we got wasn't all that good! Some of the lucky got a booklet or gym class film explaining "Plumbing 101" which left us with a multitude of more questions. And lets face it, porn hasnt been the best sex education substitute. Yet, thats what the average couple uses to build their sexual lives together.

We spend more time, preparing for a hobby or researching how to stain the deck, than we do on making ourselves sexual experts. Some figure it should just be "natural" or they subscribe to the 'on-the-job training' philosophy, but thats a weak orientation at best.

Some common questions we get asked:

1. When is it normal to lose your virginity?

The average male loses his virginity at age 16.9; females average slightly older, at 17.4. And a new study shows that genetics may be a factor: inherited traits, such as impulsivity, can make a person more or less willing to have sex at an earlier age.
