About Us

Welcome to TSWM Academy!

Talk Sex with Me (TSWM) Academy was created by Tara Spears, LMFT, LMHC, and Certified Sex Therapist. Mrs. Spears has over 13 years’ experience working with individuals, couples, and families. Mrs. Spears observed from her work that it was not necessarily sex that caused distress for individuals and families but the inability to talk about sex, most notably sexual values. Whether or not we know this, all of our behavior is dictated by our values. Due to messages of shame and secrecy, some people don’t know what their sexual values are or they feel trapped in a set of values that does not fit them. TSWM Academy attempts to bridge this gap by providing a safe space for individuals, couples, families, and professionals to reflect upon their sexual values and make informed decisions. When we say “safe”, we mean that our training is not designed to shame your values or manipulate you into changing them. We respect your right to belief as you see fit and offer a space for you to understand what you believe and how to communicate that to others. In addition to self-reflection, our courses provide step-by-step instructions on how to tackle a number of topics from talking to children about sex, initiating a new sexual practice in your relationship, and parenting a child or teen who identifies as LGBT.

We understand the sensitive nature of this topic and appreciate the trust you bestow in us when you purchase one of our trainings. We commit the following promises to you in return:

  • All of our programs come with a 30 day money back guarantee
  • All of our programs are designed with your health and the health of your relationships in mind
  • All of our programs respect your right to live and believe as you choose

Thank you for visiting our site and we wish you and your family the best.
