MORE ABOUT MY JOURNEY AND THIS WORK
I’ve been on a personal growth journey since 2010. I have seen huge changes in my life just from incorporating Tantra, Taoist philosophy and yoga into my daily life. My journey changed slightly in 2017 when I answered the call to teach and share everything that has been so transformational to me, to others. This time has been filled with learning and growth experiences. I am now a Registered Yoga Teacher, Reiki Master, Intimacy Educator, Certified Sexological Bodyworker (CSB - 2018), Certified Somatic Sex Educator (CSSE - 2020), Tantric Massage Therapist and Certified Professional Cuddlist. I am also trained in Surrogate Partner Therapy and the Expanded Triadic Model.
My past experience has been that talk therapy alone rarely works to create truly sustainable results. We are integrated beings....Body, Mind and Spirit. A holistic whole-person approach is needed to attain real change. Sadly, in our current culture, the body is the most commonly neglected aspect. So, that is where we can start. This process is client led and nothing happens without enthusiastic consent. We will first co-create a container of trust, safety and comfort and then journey from there.
Intimacy coaching and somatic practices can include but are not limited to coaching in breath, movement, sound, intention, touch, body awareness, consent and boundary-setting, communication, anatomy, sensate focus, myofascial release and scar tissue remediation. This work is designed to nurture, deepen or awaken the sense of sensual self. It can also help you to heal feelings of shame and guilt, explore the intersection of sex and spirit, better know and communicate your desires, and deepen your capacity for pleasure.
If you are experiencing painful sex, lack of sensation or numbness, difficulty reaching climax, anxiety or depression around sex, loneliness or lack of intimate connection, curiosity around kink, toys or bondage, or if you are not having the kind of sex, intimacy or touch that you want, then I can help you!
Your intention might be to overcome challenges or to enhance and improve upon where you are now. I have seen the benefits of this work in my own life and now I walk this path with students as they learn, grow and apply it to their lives. Transformational change can result. The benefits transcend just the bodily aspect and positively impact and influence other areas of your life. I will meet you where you are on your journey of self-discovery and coach you along the pathway toward your desired destination.
Your intentions and goals will guide our work together. I am here to support your deepest and highest intentions for yourself. All are welcome!
As of September 2019, I am currently based in Minneapolis, Minnesota but am willing to travel throughout the US for intensives. I am also willing to work online via Zoom or Messenger or by telephone. I am trauma informed. Please ask about my sliding scale for session fees.
