About My Clients

Are you in a relationship where mis-matched sex drives are causing problems? Love your partner but you know it can't go on like this ? Feel sexually 'broken' inside? In a relationship that's become passionless or disconnected? Have a sexual hang-up, secret or issue getting in the way of contentment in your relationship/s? Struggle with online dating? Need help with communication & connection? I got you! I'm LGBTQ & poly / alt affirming. Please see my website before making contact.

My Background and Approach

My unique skill is in helping people bridge the gaps between relationships, communication, connection and pleasure. I am trained in clinical sexology, relationship counseling and somatic sexology. My approach is holistic and integrative which means we don't just look at what's wrong. We look at what you want, and how to get you there too. All my skills are at your disposal to help you integrate mind, body and heart in your life and your relationships. Together we'll look at what you (& your partner) need, where you want to go and how to get you there in the most effective amount of time. We'll make a plan to get you on your way. You'll receive permission to be the totality of who you are. I'll help you understand what you're experiencing, what it means, and give you the tools to change and experience yourself differently. Over time you'll develop the skills to manage problems before they start and feel more joy, peace & connection within yourself and with your partner/s.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Originally from Melbourne, Australia, I now proudly call New York City home. I believe that great sex, rich pleasure, and nourishing relationships are central to the quality of our lives. I’m passionate about passion and helping people thrive in life, love, and intimacy. I challenge stigma & sexual discrimination every day. I teach people like you to to live life wholeheartedly. I show people like you how to take meaningful risks in sexuality, relating and life. I guide people just like you, toward the confidence required to make true connection, relationships and pleasure a priority. I know risk. I am a risk-taker by nature, living a bold and passionate life which lead me to follow my heart and gut to NYC - in my 40s! I know what it's like to feel afraid. And I know what it's like when everything feels like it's falling apart. I draw wisdom from many disciplines including Buddhism and social justice theories.
