Celebrating Pleasure

Hello, My Darlings! I'm So Glad You're Here! 

To see and to believe in your own beauty. This is the gift I wish to share. Be your best sexual self. And welcome to a judgment-free sex-positive space! 

The Joyful Self Love Institute promotes positive body image and self-love to people of all shapes, sizes, genders and ages. We provide sex education and Sexological Bodywork, a body-based approach to Awaken, Deepen, and Nourish the Sensual Self. 

Much of my work is about helping a body, mind and soul feel united, so a person can safely feel all emotions – including joy, fear, anger and vulnerability. This often leads to an intentional expansion of the ability to experience pleasure. It's been my personal experience and one I hope to share with as many as possible.

One-on-one coaching is offered to those suffering from sexual trauma, shame, a lack of confidence or erotic skills, or simply seeking pleasure and to improve sexual connection and intimacy. 


Our workshops empower people to feel whole, loved and beautiful. Shame and regret are replaced with celebration, hope and an understanding of our bodies and erotic selves.

The Joyful Self Love Institute seeks to improve the overall health and lives of our clients by improving self-esteem, self-confidence and self-awareness. Fulfilling sex and love relationships, where we feel the freedom and comfort to be ourselves, is essential to wholeness.

Amy's approachable manner, astute body and sensuality insights, and sense of humor make even the most difficult journeys manageable for her clients. So if you're struggling to find your groove or your orgasm, want a more satisfying sensual connection to your body, or have questions about sexual fulfillment, give her a call. Don't strive to survive, strive to thrive and live the life you're fully capable of - one of joy and love, passion and confidence. Want a free 20 minute consultation to chat, assess things and see if she might be a good fit for you? Please contact Amy here.

I can help you be more present and connected to both yourself and others. Learn what you need and want physically, mentally and emotionally. Ditch body shame and guilt. Educate yourself. This will make your relationships more passionate, fulfilling, and ultimately far more satisfying. Contact me to see if I can help and whether or not we would work well together.

4/21 & 4/22/2018 - Bodysex Workshop & Retreat:

Stop Feeling Bad About Your Body. Feel Whole, Loved & Beautiful. Live Confidently & Passionately! For All Vulva Owners.

Do you sometimes struggle to feel beautiful or worthy? Do you find it hard to fully embrace your own pleasure, even though you want to? Do you long to experience authentic sisterhood? Then this is the workshop for you! A place to talk openly about your sexuality - the good, the bad and the ugly. A place to safely unmask and embrace yourself. A place to unlock your power, your pleasure, your orgasm - and transform your life. 

Perfect if you're struggling to feel sexy, or to let go and embrace your orgasm, or with desire imbalance in partnership, body shame, still trying to heal from old trauma, or dealing with life changes such as divorce, a new baby, becoming an empty nester, etc. 

This retreat is held in a private, beautiful home in Stevenson, WA, with no more than 10 vulva-owners. 

April 21-22, 2017 - If you're seeking more joy, connection and passion in your life, this will be the most powerful thing you do for yourself all year!

I arrived scared and looking for a quick fix to reignite the sexual flame that seemed to have been lost somewhere over the past 10 years. What I found was so much more. I never imagined that a “sex workshop” could result in so much healing. I left feeling whole, seen, loved, and beautiful.

Wondering what women who have taken this workshop have to say? 

I really hope every woman can have this experience. I know it sounds intimidating but it was so natural. It’s no wonder we’re always so stressed and worried and insecure. It’s because we keep sexuality hidden in the closet repressed by guilt and shame.

That weekend I fell in love with myself and I thank each women in that room for being the mirror to my soul.

11/4 - The Art of BodyLove:

Body image and sexual self-esteem workshop for vulva-owners

November 4th,  1-6pm. Stevenson, WA
(45 mins from Portland in the Columbia River Gorge)

What do you see when you look in the mirror? Do you hate a part of your body? There is no such thing as a perfect body. Learn to embrace the body you have, today, now - not when you lose 10 lbs or in 10 weeks or when you're a size 10.

This was a warm, welcoming atmosphere where I felt comfortable and invited right away. I for sure recommend it to women who wish to be supported on their journeys by other women of varied and similar walks of life.
