About Tampa Bay Center for Sexual and Relational Healing
The Tampa Bay Center for Sexual and Relational Healing is a therapeutic space that integrates the various aspects of intimacy to foster growth – the relational, the sexual and the spiritual.
The Bird of Paradise is the symbol for the Center representing the beauty that is possible through growth. Historically it is a symbol representing “Joy through Challenges and Success”, “Faithfulness in Romantic Relationships” and “Optimism for the Future”. The Bird of Paradise is also symbolic of the transformative power of the therapy process. Over time as the plant is nurtured, it grows and its soul is revealed– the colorful bird – a full expression of its true beauty and splendor.
TBCSRS also operates in the state of Wisconsin as the Wisconsin Center for Sexual and Relational Healing, offering virtual therapy sessions in both Florida & Wisconsin.
