Kristin Hodson is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and is an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist. She is Founder and Executive Director of The Healing Group mental health clinic in Salt Lake City and Co-Author of the book Real Intimacy: A Couples Guide for Genuine, Healthy Sexuality (Cedar Fort 2011). Additionally she works as an adjunct professor teaching human sexuality to master level students working to become therapists.
To further develop her passion around human sexuality, she delved in for over three years exclusively studying human sexuality learning from the best across the country. One of her favorite things to do is bridge things that don’t seemingly go together like sex and religion. In fact she was once hired to speak at a Valentine’s corporate event and was given these parameters: “We will have Bishops to people who swing in our audience. Make it work.” And make it work she did. She’s often asked to speak in the community and religious groups because of this.
She has a unique ability to break down the topics of sexuality into easily digestible pieces empowering people to further develop their sexual identity, hone their sexual values, improve their communication around sexuality all with the intention to improve people’s relationships with themselves and others.
Kristin is approachable, relatable and has a light sense of humor around something that often feels intimidating or heavy. She has been a guest presenter for nationally renowned sex therapist Dr. Gina Ogden and Dr. Tammy Nelson and has contributed to Sheknows.com, Women’s Day Magazine, The Deseret News, was a regular guest on the x96 on the Radio From Hell show taking live calls on sex and intimacy and has regularly appeared on KSL’s Studio 5, on KUTV 2 news.
