About My Clients

For many of us, sex is a source of trauma, confusion, or shame. We may have learned that sex is something to fear or feel ashamed of. We may have faced unwanted sexual experiences or sexual abuse. Most of us didn’t receive a comprehensive sex education or have anyone to teach us how to engage in sex with intention, consent, and communication. This can leave us confused and unfulfilled. Sex can involve the difficult task of returning to our bodies that we have long since distanced from.

What I Specialize In

Healing sexuality and improving relationships involves self awareness and the capacity to hold discomfort. We are waking up the body. We are becoming lucid in our life experience. We are entering into a relationship with our senses. This is an avenue to feeling more alive. Through shifting our experience of sex, we may integrate parts of ourselves we have suppressed, repressed, and shamed. We can practice radical acceptance through pleasure, joy, exploration, play, and kink. We can offer ourselves and others pleasure, be seen in our own pleasure and joy, connect deeply, and enjoy increased creativity and life-force. For some of us, sex can even be an expression of our experience in the world, a language between bodies and souls. Some things we might discuss in session include: sexual trauma, kink exploration, gender and orientation, sexual difficulties in relationship, intentional dating, self-love, attachment issues, sexual shame, communication skills, and boundaries.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I want to work with you to increase your sexual health, communicate wants, needs, and boundaries, and feel more connected to your partner(s). To help you embrace your single-ness and learn to date with intention, while unpacking unhealthy relational patterns. To increase your self-love and self pleasure. To discover all of the ways to feel in touch with your pleasure and joy. I want you to feel the excitement and freedom to explore your gender and orientation and kinks within your sexual relationships. To navigate sexual trauma and shame in a way that feels hopeful and empowering. To learn what a 'deep yes' feels like for you. We may use components of parts work/IFS, somatic work, attachment theory, mindfulness, meditation, nervous system regulation, and inner child/trauma work in our time together. *You do not need any sexual partners to begin this work*.
