We Speak Sexuality™
“When you create harmony within yourself, you will discover harmony in the world...
This human experience is full of transition and change. The rolling waves of life bring the full spectrum of pleasure and pain, of challenge and celebration, of loss and love. A great amount of human suffering is caused by grasping, resistance and the attempt to have control over life’s conditions. Embracing the great mystery of life is an essential key in finding inner peace and joy.
In this continuous cycle of life, death and rebirth we are constantly being reborn on a cellular level as we grow, refine, become and transform. I am here to guide you in shedding the skin that no longer serves you and rewiring the pathways that will allow you to embody your true self and discover your fullest potential.
— Brandilyn Brierley, MA, MIM, SF & Marin Sex Therapist
We are alive at very fascinating time on the Earth where our societal systems for partnership, family and community are going through some major reformations. As Esther Perel says, “Love rests on two pillars: surrender and autonomy. Our need for togetherness exists alongside our need for separateness.” The dance of relationship teaches us to find balance in this interplay between our needs for individuation and connectedness.
My passion for being a sexuality and intimacy coach, sexologist, healer and guide, is fueled by the deep gratitude I feel for discovering natural states of inner peace and the belief in all people’s innate ability to heal.

My Story & Why I Can Help You…
I have the capacity to understand your process and hold space to help you heal and grow.
I grew up in a religious culture, loving to pray while fearing God. I was born with a keen sense of intuition and a passion for singing. In my adolescent years, I remember asking a church leader if my hero’s and heroines, Mother Teresa, the Dalai Lama, Martin Luther King and John Lennon would be in the highest kingdom of heaven. Hearing they would not, created a rebellion within me that forced me to reexamine my religious beliefs. At this young age, I did not have any reference points to understand the vital contrast between spirituality and religion. Therefore, when I stopped believing in my religion, I lost part of my spiritual identity. This disconnection from spirituality caused me to lose my ability to sing and express. For the next couple of years, psychological pain and repressed self-expression created a blockage in my throat. Meanwhile, a close family member began to battle with severe addiction. My instinct was to do whatever I could do to help, which significantly inspired my interest in psychology and the healing arts.
At 18, I discovered Meditation and Yoga, which allowed me to reconnect to spirituality through a philosophy I could fully believe in, because it taught me that all humans were capable of obtaining enlightenment beyond any dogma. Reclaiming my True Spiritual Nature set my soul free again, which set my voice and unique expression free again. Through remembering my true identity, I was able to express myself with more authenticity and depth than before. I have been on a path deeply devoted to spirituality and personal transformation ever since.
In my life, I have had my heart broken open many times from the excruciating pain of loss. I am a survivor of sexual trauma and healed from PTSD, Anxiety and Depression through my own therapy. Each time I went through the darkness, it catalyzed a healing process within my spirit and psyche that ultimately brightened my light. The wounds I’ve healed within myself have grown me into the compassionate, loving, joyful, empowered, sovereign woman I am today.
Hardship has been the impetus for my soul’s deepest transformation. My favorite word in Italian is Chairoscuro, which means it is the light that creates the shadows and the shadows that create the light. Contrast allows us to embrace polarity, so that we can transcend it.
My passion for being a sexologist, healer and guide, is fueled by the deep gratitude I feel for discovering natural states of inner peace, ecstasy and bliss through simple breathing and meditation practices. I have reverence in my heart for the arduous journey it took for me to arrive fully at home within my own skin.
I am excited to meet you, wherever you are at. It is my soul’s mission to create harmony by sharing truth and transformation with humanity.
