Every Wednesday The CSPH highlights a Sexuality Professional you should keep your eye on. Their backgrounds are very diverse in order to bring attention to the wide variety of amazing people working in the field. This week we bring you Alexyss Tylor!
1. What do you do in the field of sexuality?
I host a no holds barred talk show about the way in which spirituality and sexuality tie into each other.
2. Where are you based?
3. What is your focus? What do you do?
My focus is self-empowerment, self-respect, and healing wounds from childhood. I help people identify issues from their childhood that are creating problems for them in the present and then help empower them to take responsibility for their healing process.
4. What are your particular goals and passions in the field?
To help people heal from their childhood wounds and empower themselves to make sexual choices from a place of self-esteem and power.
5. Why did you choose to work in this field?
It chose me. I grew up in Atlanta and my mother left me at a very young age. I grew up with a grandmother who was very religious. When my mother returned, she was a preacher. I experienced abuse and oppression, as well as my mother’s refusal to teach me about my body and biology. This resulted in a lot of pain and abusive relationships with men as I grew older. As I healed my wounded spirit, I realized there were others who might need the same kind of healing.
6. Where did you go for school/training?
Street Life. I am an empath. Through my own experience I combine my knowledge of the physical and spiritual.
7. Do you have any literature out (websites, articles)?
8. What would you recommend to future professionals attempting to get into the field?
Be true to yourself and come from a place of honoring integrity. This work should be about helping people stand in their power.
9. What is the most challenging aspect for you working in this career?
Sexism, folks not wanting to respect my message because I don’t have the degrees. I am a woman of color and there are those who do not respecting my style, my language or the way in which I deliver my message.
10. One must read-what would you recommend? Why?
