Was your childhood... weird? Were you taught all sorts of stuff about sex, bodies, gender, and pleasure that's not in alignment for you anymore? Do those messages echo in your sex-life today? If so, you're probably a good fit for my work. Through learning sacred sexuality, you'll release old conditioning, heal deep wounding, reset your relationship with your body, and expand your capacity to feel pleasure (to the edges of the Universe!)
There is so much more to you (and your problems) than just the left-half of your brain. So I use 'everything and the kitchen sink' to help you. From neuroscience to deep Tantric wisdom, I work with and combine many modalities, but only ones that consistently get results for my clients. I see you as a whole, from your thoughts and imagination to your body and sensations.
Your issues are in your tissues. Thoughts and feelings, though important and informative, are not complete without the lived, sensory experiences of your body. That knot in your solar plexus, the tension in your pelvic floor, the clenching in your jaw... all of those point to experiences that need to be heard, felt, and processed through your system. This allows for a bone-deep healing that lasts.
You are already whole. You do not need to be fixed. By using mindfulness (hanging out in the present moment), I help clients explore what's alive inside with curiosity and compassion. Through accepting what's there, whether it be terrible fear or exquisite joy, deep healing and integration happens. There is so much in your past and so much in your future but the good stuff is happening right here.
Moments of stress, overwhelm, or trauma can haunt us years if not generations later. Because these experiences get stored in the tissues of the body you can still feel the weight of the trauma you carry even if your mind is 'over it.' My coaching is deeply trauma-aware and gets beautiful results. Using embodied/somatic techniques, I help people heal themselves by reconnecting to their own bodies.
The last-frontier of personal development is sexuality. This realm has so many taboos, traumas, baggage, and miseducation. Focusing on this area as a path for deeper growth leads to new levels of pleasure and joy in all areas of your life. As taught by the Tantric tradition, stronger connection with the most sensitive parts of your body leads to unbelievable growth and thriving.
Navigating the realms of the Great Mystery can be difficult, especially if you've experienced spiritual abuse or other harmful religious behavior. But after decades of exploring spirituality in many shapes and forms, and getting a certification in Tantra, I can tell you nobody's got the monopoly on truth. But I'd love to collaborate with you as you discover your own.
There can be so much pain and difficulty in being a woman. Even if there have been some changes in recent decades, there's still a lot there. Fortunately, we have an incredibly powerful tool to heal ourselves, and it's right between our legs. Reconnecting to your sexuality is an incredible way to heal and thrive as a woman... no matter what the patriarchy says.
Your sexuality is the canary in the coal mine. So much of what we experience, our stress, our trauma, our heartbreak, gets locked between our legs and strangles our desire. Using a holistic approach that takes everything from the physical to the imaginary into account, I help people explore and heal the hurts that keep them from their deepest pleasure and intimacy (in a safe and non-explicit way.)
