Prior to sex coaching, Pamela Joy spent a decade and a half in high tech at Apple and Facebook. After facing challenges with sexuality in her own relationship of over 20 years, Pamela Joy first began her journey with Somatica as a client, sharing her story of this experience in the TEDx talk “Reclaiming Female Sexual Desire”. After seeing how much transformation was possible through this work, she decided to leave her high tech career and become a Certified Somatica Sex and Relationship Coach herself.
Pamela Joy has a Masters in Counseling Psychology, giving her a solid base in general marriage and family therapy. She also draws from her additional 1,500 hours of training in the field of sexuality, using this knowledge to explore collaboratively and experientially with clients to increase their capacity for emotional and physical intimacy. She is a Trauma-Informed Sex Positive Therapy certified practitioner and on faculty at Esalen. Her education includes a focus on marginalized communities including the trans, bisexual, queer and non-monogamous, open and polyamorous community.
