Hi! My name is Celina Wigle-Olias-Varga! * waving *
I am a cisgender, polyamorous, pansexual woman in a heterosexual and monogamous marriage in Jersey City, NJ just outside NYC (but if you ask me where I'm from, the answer is Oregon).
I have personally navigated gender dysphoria, rape and assault recovery, abortion, sexual surrogacy, libido loss due to postpartum depression, cervical cancer, medical rape, navigating the ins and outs of a polyamorous lifestyle, hitting the restart button on life as my emerging identity did not correspond with the values of those around me-twice, and finding healing through sacred sexuality, to name a few of the journeys life has put before me. I present to you myself, as I am today, as evidence of the ability to survive and thrive. I am here to serve as a guide and mentor for anyone who may resonate with my story and wish to discover and journey towards Sexual Wholeness.
Like many educators and mentors in the field of sexual health and studies, my journey has been a winding path of internal and external, private and public, formal and informal learning experiences. As classes and opportunities presented themselves I took them with joy, excitement, and an open sense of curiosity. I explored the more formal role of sex educator only to have life pull me out of school and point me towards other directions and potentials. I am currently pursuing my MSW at Widener University and will be enrolling soon with the Integrative Sex Therapy Institute to become a certified Sex & Couples Therapist. Below are some highlights of my journey to becoming a Sexual Wholeness Mentor:
It is with the deepest of love, gratitude, and respect that I come forward with what I have learned from the following path pavers: Amrita Grace, Layla Martin, Samantha Zipporah, Lara Catone, Tom Myers, Dr. Eden Fromberg, Isa Hererra, Bodhi Avinasha, and every soul who has had the courage to share their stories.
Thank you for being a part of this journey!
