In my unique coaching style, I implement foundations from the Somatica Method (www.somaticainstitute.com) using experiential tools to deepen your self intimacy and awareness, as well as a multitude of other practices I've learned along the way. I have a Diploma of Professional Counselling with a specialization in Relationships and Intimacy (www.vcct.com) and a certificate in Professional Sex Coaching (www.sexcoachu.com). I recently completed a workshop on Trauma Sensitive Yoga through www.traumasensitiveyogawest.com, to better work with my clients through a more trauma informed lens. I also have limited amounts of training in Clinical Art Therapy, Gestalt Therapy and Family of Origin Therapy.
With these varied skills, we will work together to help you integrate and deepen the principles of self intimacy, conflict intimacy and affection intimacy as well as embodiment, empathy, communication, attachment & individuation, desire & arousal, integrity and boundaries into your life and relationships.
We will work together using both experiential and dialogic tools to deepen your skills, awareness and capacity to attract, move towards and to be in more fulfilling relationships- With the added bonus of a hotter sex life!
When these principles are alive and well inside of us, our relationships can grow and strengthen. If you look at a relationship as a living thing, the above attributes are the food it needs to survive.
*Although touch can be a part of many sessions, it is never required in order to work together. I have a clear set of boundaries for all sessions which include staying clothed at all times, no kissing and no genital stimulation. We will always discuss any touch before it happens, your yes is as exciting as your no.
I work with all kinds of female centric concerns and I will approach our sessions with an open mind, presence and a ton of empathy.
Some of the most common concerns for women are low sexual desire, body dysphoria, lack of orgasms (ever or recently), learning new effective communication skills, sexual inhibition, trauma, learning dating skills and an overall desire for enhanced pleasure.
When I see couples, I always let them know that I'd like to see them together as well as separately, throughout the course of our work together.
The most common concerns that come up for couples are little or no sex in the relationship, conflicts around desire (one wants it all the time and the other rarely wants it, as an example), communication/negotiation skills and performance skills.
If there's something you're struggling with that isn't on this list, please, by all means get in touch with me.
Men endure a lot of pressure in our society, largely around not being truly allowed to have and express the full range of emotions that we humans are capable of, and to be the fixers and providers of the world. I hold a space for you to experience all that you need to and for all that comes up in our sessions together.
The most common concerns for coaching men are low or no desire, early ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, delayed ejaculation, sexual inhibition, communication skills, body dysphoria, learning dating skills and an overall desire for enhanced pleasure.
If you're interested in booking a session or can't find all the answers to your questions, I'd love to hear from you!
