It includes specialized training in these areas and Valli completed some of these hours in the area of fetishes and paraphilias with faculty through John''s Hopkins University. She received a post-graduate certificate in Sexual Health at the University of Michigan, both as Sex Therapist and Sex Educator. This included comprehensive training in sex therapy, sexual dysfunctions and sexuality in general. She is currently a PhD candidate.
