Sex positive psychotherapist, Kate Loree’s childhood journey led from Oregon bliss to Deep South discordance exposing her to sexual shame, sexual abuse, and racism. But life struggles are often the ingredients that define purpose and passion. Once unencumbered from bible belt restriction due to a llama money inheritance, life got better and shifted into hyperdrive. Arriving bright-eyed to the big city, the city of angels, she started art therapy grad school. Little did she know the wild non-monogamous, kinky ride that lay ahead. Spiritual journeys would shift her further. Together, these experiences shaped her into artsy, trauma-informed, social justice-focused sex-positive therapist she is today. Don’t miss this story that proves that wild sexuality and spirituality can co-exist.
