Say Hello, Ask a Question
Wondering if I can help or if we’d work well together? It’s easy to say hello, ask a question or two, and get to know me before scheduling a session. I offer a free 15 min consultation.
My sincere belief is that the body wants to turn towards healthy sexuality as a plant wants to turn towards to sun. Sometimes we just need a little help finding the sun. Tapping into our sexuality and letting go of culturally induced body shame, trauma and repression are often crucial steps to embracing pleasure more fully and to living a sexually fulfilling life.
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 you.
One-on-one coaching is offered to meet your specific goals. My model is not one of recurring clients over long periods of time, nor one of cookie-cutter programs trying to fit your issues neatly into boxes. Instead, I provide you with the education and tools you need to meet your goals and become self-sufficient. More info on coaching can be found here.
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. To learn about current workshops, click here.
