Somatic Education, Pleasure and Intimacy Coaching, Cuddling and Hypnosis

Welcome! Congratulations for taking a big step toward bringing more sensuality, more pleasure, and more wholeness in your life.  I honor and celebrate you and the courage it takes to ask for help.  My mission is to help you grow and heal from shame, judgment and trauma, to move toward greater wholeness, pleasure and happiness.  


This work has completely changed my life!  I'd like to help you make the changes you want to make, so that you too can have a life beyond your wildest dreams.


What do you long for?   I am here to help you know that longing, feel it and trust it, share it, and build your capacity to actually experience it.

Somatic education provides a way to to embrace your innate wholeness, and integrate all aspects of your body, mind and spirit, including your sexuality.  We all have a need for touch, connection and intimacy that goes beyond what is offered in most of today’s fast-paced culture.


Together, we work with your body’s wisdom, moving slowly and mindfully, to soothe your nervous system, and engage your mind and spirit in healing. This transformative work can be especially effective for trauma healing, reconnection with your core being, and opening possibilities for desire, joy and ecstasy to be more present in your every day life. 


Somatic Education includes practices in effective communication skills, is based on research into the connection of physiology and the mind, and grounded in safety, clear boundary setting and enthusiastic consent.   Sessions can include coaching and practice in breath, movement, body awareness, boundary-setting, communication, anatomy, sensate focus, massage, and other body-based teaching.  Our work together is guided by your needs and desires, to nurture, deepen and awaken your felt sense of yourself. 

Hypnosis is another powerful tool for calming anxiety, releasing shame, changing habits that aren't serving you, and increasing your capacity to experience pleasure.  In some ways, the brain does not distinguish between what's imagined and real.  This is good, and allows you to rehearse what you want to and experience physiological changes in your body.  It also feels wonderful!   Contrary to some myths, you cannot be controlled by a hypnotist.   You are always safe and in control, and everything that happens in hypnotic trance is for your benefit.  

Are you seeking to (re)discover your erotic self in the wake of surgery or an accident, or as your body changes with aging?  Struggling with low libido, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, pelvic pain or numbness, or anxiety around intimacy and relationships?  Wondering how to be present for sex and relationships while clean and sober?   Craving the healing power of pleasure?   I may be able to help.
