Surrogate Partner Therapy is often misunderstood and misrepresented. Most people are not aware of the intent, the process, and the benefits of this therapy. In this episode, Surrogate Partner Intern Andrew Heartman presents SPT as an opportunity to acquire developmental skills that have not been acquired previously. It is more than theoretical, it is more than experiential, it is developmental in nature. Andrew describes, using examples from his own experience, the growth and transformation that can result from this powerful form of therapy.

Andrew was interviewed, along with colleagues Dr. Susan Kaye and Tara Livingston, on a Baltimore radio show, February 10, 2014.

He told the journalist he wouldn't participate with any article that refers to him as a "sex surrogate" (here's why). Although the title is disappointing, the content of the article itself is good.

Male Surrogate's Passion for Intimacy is an article about Andrew that appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle on New Year's Day, 2013.

“When I think of Andrew, I think first of his warmth and his presence. He has a remarkable ability to focus his loving attention completely. Anyone fortunate enough to be working closely with Andrew will know they are being held in a spirit of love and service.
