I specialize in deepening comfort, safety and pleasure in the body, which includes enhancing one’s relationship with oneself, as well as with sexuality, and within intimate connections.
I am available in person, by phone, or Skype for private therapy sessions, relationship and sexuality coaching, and consultations. I also run small groups and 3 day workshops for people desiring on-going support, for the immersion that workshops provide.
I am available for mental and medical health care professionals needing consultation concerning patients or clients, as well as folks seeking treatment for personal healing.
I welcome men, women, couples, poly relationships, non-binary and trans identities, kink, kink curious, as well as any and all sexual orientations and those questioning.
How I Work
As a licensed therapist, somatically-based trauma specialist and sexuality educator, I customize an integrative approach depending on personal need, that includes a solid training in the psychological, social/cultural, emotional, physiological, religious and developmental issues affecting sexuality, backed by science, mindfulness practices, intuition and decades of experience personally and professionally. I work with all levels of sexual experience from the most shy to those sexually active who desire to enhance their sexual responsiveness.
