Anne Hodder-Shipp, ACS is a multi-certified sex and relationships educator with 12 years of experience working in the sexuality field. She boasts a unique understanding of age-appropriate sex education, trauma-informed healing, critical thinking, and emotional intelligence, and she brings a fun, friendly, and sex-positive facilitation style to every session, group, or event she hosts. A cum laude graduate of the Roy H. Park School of Communications at Ithaca College, Anne's journalism and sociology background inspired a unique perspective of the public eye, which led her to work as a journalist, editor, and blogger covering the business of pleasure and the latest in human sexuality research. After readers reached out with vulnerable sex questions, Anne recognized a genuine passion for being of service, and she decided to train professionally as a sex educator. Anne received her first certification and endorsement by the renowned San Francisco Sex Information program and continued her training via the American College of Sexologists International and Planned Parenthood Los Angeles's School Based Sex Education Program, where she honed a special skill for working with adolescents. Anne also holds professional training in breathwork facilitation under the guidance of David Elliott and dreamwork under the guidance of Kezia Vida. In addition to her private practice and public workshops, Anne is the founder of and lead educator at Everyone Deserves Sex Education (EDSE), and also leads treatment groups for clients recovering from substance use disorder, eating disorders, compulsive sexual behavior, and other stigmatized illnesses.
