Has sex become an elephant in the room instead of a way to feel close and connected? Maybe it seems like you trigger each other when it comes to sex. Or sex has simply become a chore. You might be feeling more like friends, co-parents or roommates instead of romantic partners. And it can be so difficult to talk to your partner about intimacy when it's a stressor....or you're not being intimate at all. Sex is admittedly a sensitive area that can bring up insecurities or ego, but there is a way to get back to feeling passionate and excited again. My goal is for you to feel safe, understood and able to express your authentic sexuality.
I specialize in helping committed couples get their sexy spark back using my signature Pathway to Passion system. This system focuses on: 1. Emotional Intelligence 2. Creating A Sexual Foundation and 3. Your Personal Sexual Roadmap. I also use IFS, a psychospiritual approach, to help clients heal deep wounds so they can be their best in their relationship.
Most people wait too long to address their sex lives and unfortunately things just tend to get worse when they're ignored . . . and sometimes lead to a breakup or divorce. I don't want that for you! So, if you're willing to do the hard work of facing your current reality head on, I can help. Visit my website and request a free Intimacy Breakthrough Call now!

A lot of my work is educational. We learn communication skills and practice them with live feedback in session. We discuss consent and you and your partner practice (platonic) touch exercises while I guide you to tune into your boundaries and desires. when we do IFS (Internal Family Systems) sessions, it's more meditative and experiential.
