She sees patients of all genders and sexes who come to her with various issues, including bladder and bowel dysfunction and chronic pain, but mainly talks to patients with some type of sexual dysfunction. Most of the time, their sexual issues can be addressed with a big dose of comprehensive sex ed and a side portion of empowerment.

When it comes to sexual intelligence and great sex education, UC embraces always being unapologetically real, happily crunk, and deliciously kind.
