My name is Semeko Cox Funches the owner & operator of the Metairie Sex Therapy Center. I specialize in sexual health and substance use recovery as it relates to sexual difficulties. I utilize my counseling skills to assist with the improvement of my clients mental health quality, substance sobriety, work life balance, trauma informed care, and sexual well-being as a whole. I also provide future therapist guidance on their paths to greatness and a Licensed Professional Counseling Supervisor (LPC-S).
In 2004 I received my undergraduate degree from Southern University A & M where I studied Psychology. In 2007 I completed my first graduate degree from Southern University A & M in Mental Health Counseling and I also certified in School Counseling. In 2013 I completed a second Master’s in Criminal Justice at Southern University of New Orleans and am currently vetting colleges & universities for doctoral programs specializing in Sexual Health, Wellness, & Education. I’m a national certified counselor, a board approved supervisor, educator, and master addiction clinician. I’ve contracted with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, Loyola University, Youth EmPowerment, & LSUHSC to highlight a little of my vast experience. I’ve also been a member of the AASECT community since 2016 and will be completing my sex therapy certification at the years end.
I strive to make warm & genuine connections with my clients as I support them in navigating all of the joy, grief, & everything in between that life brings us. My therapeutic approach is tailored to each individual client. I draw from different modalities including trauma informed approaches, mindfulness, and muscle work (body-based). I also specialize in sexual therapy, health, wellness, & education as a whole. I’ve been working with substance use recovery since 2007 along with anxiety, depression, & trauma (sexual, DV, IPV, etc.). I also work with adults diagnosed with ADHD and sleeping issues. My clients consist of individual’s and couple’s. I assist my clients with working to strengthen their relationships, intimacy, communication, and exploring sexuality & gender. I’m kink and polyamory/consensual non-monogamy knowledgeable. Compassion & non-judgment are core values that I exhibit in my therapeutic support.
