Jamila Dawson LMFT
Jamila M. Dawson, LMFT is a sex & relationship therapist, activist, and speaker. Her goal: break down sexual stigma and help people design mindful, vibrant relationships.
As a kinky, queer, polyamorous woman, she presents on sexual wellness and the politics of power and pleasure to mental health professionals and to the general public.
