Mou's Story

Moushumi Ghose is a licensed therapist, filmmaker and author who's mission is to break down barriers in sexuality and relationships.

Mou attended San Francisco State University majoring in Clinical Psychology at with an emphasis in Human Sexuality in the 1990's. She worked with a variety of populations, including day treatment setting, as a job coach (working with developmentally disabled adults in vocational settings) and a psychiatric hospital running art groups for adults on the locked ward.

In the very early days of the dot-com boom, Mou was intriuged by the creative arts in technology. 

In the late 90's Mou moved to Los Angeles to work as a Producer in Creative Services for a major tech company, then as a Production Manager for a start-up that developed streaming online music. She also worked as an internet DJ and met and collaborated with many musicians and artists.

As the tech industry began to shift towards a more corporate culture,  Mou made her way back to social servies getting her Master of Art's in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University and then her therapy license from the California Board of Behavioral Science. She interned as a counselor for folx living with HIV/AIDS, sexual abuse survivors, and families in the foster care system.

In 2007, she opened her solo practice focusing on sexual health, giving voice to sexual minorities with and emphasis on LGBTQIA/gender issues and thus began her work as a sex therapist.
