My Ideal Client

My clients are varied. They may be queer, straight, monogamous, poly, or questioning. They may have been married for a really long time or never at all. They may be single. They may feel sex is very important or they may feel differently. They are intelligent and curious, willing to work to make a more fulfilling life for themselves and each other. They may be wanting to build relationship skills or to develop more confidence. They may be in love or in longing or grieving. They are complex.

My Approach to Helping

I focus on intimate relationships, sexual expression, disparate desire, shifting intimacy, alternative relating styles, polyamory. This often includes performance issues, the impact of aging and menopause, dealing with grief and jealousy. I have experience working with differing abilities and my clients range in age from mid-twenties to mid-nineties. I aim to engage the mind and heart while centering on the body. Pleasure is important and a great way to learn!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I have been an Intimacy and Sexuality coach since 2008, and completed my PhD in Human Sexuality in 2018. I am a board certified Sexologist with a background in neo-Tantra. I have been guiding people into clarity around their sexuality since 2003. I also work with those in recovery from drug/alcohol addiction and their specific issues around sex and relationships.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Polyamorous and Open Relationships External link

    Consensual non-monogamous relationships can be very complex! I have extensive personal experience navigating them and can offer guidance on decision-making to preserve health and sanity. Finding the right type of relating can make the difference between chaos and richness. We will consider which boundaries serve you best and how you can maintain them.

  • Aging Concerns External link

    As we advance in years our sexual relationships may change. Bodies change, interests change. Our culture is at a loss for what healthy, vibrant sexuality looks like in older people. There is no age at which sex becomes inappropriate! It is possible to manage aging in a realistic way around sex. Sexuality may awaken and flourish after you've given up on it, and it may take on different dimensions.

  • Drug Dependence / Abuse / Addiction External link

    I have worked at a drug and alcohol recovery center since 2016. I provide support for those dealing with addiction in the areas of sexual health, true consent, setting and maintaining boundaries, addressing past trauma, harm reduction, and reclaiming healthy sexual pleasure.

  • Sexual Problems External link

    Sexual types of problems might be the most difficult to talk about due to rampant shame and guilt in which we are immersed as a culture. Sexual problems are almost always related to relationship issues, which give glimpses into our deepest selves. I have extensive experience guiding people through their sexual problems and into ease.

  • Loss or Grief External link

    Unprocessed grief can hold us back from living. If you have suffered a terrible loss, we can work together to bring light and air in the wounded places, thereby releasing you to live more fully. Often sexuality is deeply impacted by grief because so many feelings are accessible through sex.
