Answers to Your Most Common Questions
Q: HOW MUCH TIME DO I NEED TO DEDICATE EACH WEEK?
A: Your commitment is for a 60-minute session each week (or every other week) in addition to time for home exercises and practices, which are usually about 15 minutes, 3-5 times per week.
Q: WHAT IS INCLUDED?
A: Weekly Zoom calls or in-person sessions lasting 60 minutes each. Embodied exercises and practices from the fields of neuroscience, trauma healing, modern psychology, and ancient Tantric and Taoist wisdom led within session. Individual email support between sessions so you also feel safe in between sessions. Curated exercises and practices for you to do each week on your own to deepen and integrate the work we’re doing in sessions. Firm accountability.
Q: HOW IS COACHING DIFFERENT FROM THERAPY OR COUNSELING?
A: Therapy and counseling are a great fit for people who want to talk about their sex, love, and/or relationship problems and gain awareness of the problems themselves.
Coaching is more appropriate for people who are aware of the problem and are committed and ready to take action to get what they want instead.
The coaching I offer involves a wide variety of tools, practices, and techniques to get you results as quickly as possible.
Q: WHAT METHODS DO YOU USE?
A: I integrate contemporary coaching with neuroscience, trauma healing, modern psychology, and ancient Tantric and Taoist wisdom. I work with body awareness, breathwork, communication skills, modern coaching modalities, role-play, guided meditation, and emotional release exercises.
Q: WHAT ARE YOUR QUALIFICATIONS?
A: I am a certified integrated sex, love and relationships coach with a specialization in relationships through the Tantric Institute of Integrated Sexuality. I have additional specializations in Tantric sex, jade egg, and men's work. I also have a masters degree in communication studies with a focus on women’s studies and pedagogy. I have taught college classes and workshops at traditional and online colleges in areas such as public speaking, writing, interpersonal communication, small group communication, critical thinking, and argumentation. I am also a gentle, restorative, and yin yoga instructor. I have also studied with dozens of acupuncturists, chiropractors, yoga teachers, and educators in various disciplines.
Q: IS THERE ANY KIND OF NUDITY OR WEIRD STUFF INVOLVED?
A: No. All sessions are fully clothed. We will discuss sex, love, and relationships and reference anatomy, but everyone will be clothed in each session. A few clients experience some discomfort with discussing these topics, and I invite you to share what you’re experiencing in every moment
People usually feel very comfortable talking with me, and that’s one of the biggest reasons I offer this work—to provide safe spaces for people to explore these topics.
Q: WHERE DO YOU WORK FROM? WHERE IS YOUR OFFICE?
A: I have a home office in Silicon Valley in the United States. I also work with clients from all over the world, because we can connect via Zoom.
Q: WHAT IF I DON'T GET ANY BENEFITS AND WANT TO END OUR WORK RELATIONSHIP?
A: Working on sex, love, and relationships can trigger fear. Fear can influence our actions, and we may decide to do things that don’t contribute to growth. I am all about honesty, and I am happy to have a frank conversation with you to find out whether a desire to end our sessions is coming from a place of fear or because we’re simply not a good match.
And if you aren’t getting any benefits? If this happens, we can stop working together and explore options for a better fit.
Q: DO YOU OFFER A FREE SESSION SO WE CAN SEE IF WE LIKE YOU?
A: I do offer a complimentary consultation. Keep in mind that moving from surviving to thriving can take time. The commitment and effort that comes with this journey has tremendous and life-changing effects on your sex, love, and relationships.
While you’ll have profound experiences in many individual sessions, long term integration and transformation doesn’t happen in just one session. With a commitment, you give yourself more time to move through vulnerability and challenges with support and accountability on your journey to being epic.
