Into-Me-See Book by Dr. M. Jeanelle Perkins-Muhamma, LMFT


Becoming intimate or nurturing intimacy with your partner seems like it should be easy. It can be. Yet, for some people, it is an arduous task that makes them feel very vulnerable. If you’ve ever had difficulty achieving this milestone in your relationship or thought you needed to raise your intimacy bar, I have three words: “you are right!” Kudos for actually acknowledging that there is a problem.


Being a licensed marriage and family therapist, I understand the intricacies of deep intimate exchange between two people who love, adore, and desire one another but, on most days, can’t seem to muster the fluidity of affection to create and sustain an intimate connection.  I teach couples to flourish in intimate relationships. After having spent years helping couples resolve their intimacy mishaps and explore their intimacy needs, I am motivated to unveil the many untold truths regarding the myths and realities of intimacy between Black couples. Despite centuries of negative narratives about the closeness of Black couples, I use this medium to reveal what sometimes limits a couple's desire to actualize healthy intimacy.

Without harboring the desire to demonize anyone, I expose unspoken truths about the challenges to healthy intimate relationships. These challenges have always existed, but because no one is willing to talk with unrelenting honesty and depths of emotion, attaining complete intimacy remains an illusion in many relationships. James Baldwin once said, “Not everything that is faced will be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” Intimacy is a desire couples are often unprepared to discuss, yet one they desperately need to live. It is oxygen to a relationship.


I hope In-To-Me-See accelerates the innate desire of Black couples toward intimacy. My aim with this book is to light the paths for couples on their journeys to discover their unique, intimate expressions.
