I was gifted the name Niseema when I was 19 years old, a time when I was really trying to figure out who I was and where I fit in the world. When I received my name, I was told that it meant "One with Unbound Love" and something clicked for me.
Since that moment, I've been trying to embody and stay true to that intention. When I figured out that my heart sings when I am studying and teaching all things relationships and sexuality, I knew I needed more.
Over the course of my life, I've had many rich experiences that have brought me to where I am now. I've spent time studying tantra, clinical sexology, coaching, bodywork and massage, mind-body connection, relationships, Somatica Method, Gestalt therapy and most recently, counselling. I'm certified as a Professional Sex and Relationship Coach, a Somatica Practitioner as well as a professional counsellor. I also have lived experience with trauma throughout my life, which has created a deep understanding (and interest) in overcoming it's effects on our lives- Including dissociation, trauma response, coping/survival mechanisms, effects on relationships, anxiety, feeling unsafe in the world, anger and much more.
Beyond all of that, I live in this world as a cis-woman, I've held the hand of someone while they took their last breathes, I've read many books (even when the fog of anxiety was taking up too much space to understand everything), I have way more stretch marks than I'm comfortable with, I've laughed a lot and been blissfully happy, I've cried a lot too. I love hiking through the forest with my dog and swimming in the salty ocean and fresh water lakes that are so abundant around the West Coast. I've made mistakes and I've accomplished great things, I've lost friends and made new ones, gone through terrible heart break and fallen madly in love. I've felt the burn of shame and the glow of pride.
I've lived a life rich in experience. Just like yours, only different.
