About My Clients

Do you experience low desire in intimate relationships? Do you long for deeper attachment relationships and/or more erotic fulfillment? Past upsetting events, a lack of understanding of core erotic desire, hormone changes, and shame surrounding asking for needs can dampen your ability to be fully present.

My Background and Approach

I have advanced training in the realm of relationships and sex. I can help guide you in navigating emotional connection and physical intimacy in adult relationships through learning about boundaries, consent, core erotic desires and attachment in adult relationships.

Many of the exercises are experiential and you can apply them solo or with a partner.
