Sensuality Coach, Diversity Trainer, GLBT Sex Educator

There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not:
The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid.
We are all a part of the beauty of nature. Celebrating this beauty in ourselves and in others, alone or with partners, at home or in the mountains, rivers, urban settings or private gardens of our personal geographies, is a vital part of our ability to live vibrant, blissful lives.
"The way of an eagle in the air"- soaring and gliding with freedom, power and purpose - who has not watched and admired these and the other marvels of nature? This verse from the Old Testament reminds us that "the way of a man with a maid" is equally beautiful and full of wonder. Unfortunately, the mystery surrounding the expression of human sensuality is all-too-often due not to awe, but to ignorance, fear and guilt. Just as many turn to spiritual coaches of various types for guidance in navigating life's path, there are times it can be valuable to turn to a sensuous coach who is trained in assisting people in reawakening their love for the physical and spiritual beauties of their own bodies and senses.
This is the role of the sensuality coach. I have a Ph.D. in Education and a Masters in Counseling, as well as IPSA training, Myers-Briggs certification, and many years of experience as a diversity trainer, sex researcher and educator. I do relationship coaching with a wide variety of clients of all ages and sexual/relationship orientations, both in person and via phone. One focus is helping people with the transitions in their lives - gender, age, or career transitions as well as relationship transitions. I've assisted couples in the process of opening up their relationship to being non-monogamous, either by swinging or becoming polyamorous, or in transitioning back to monogamy or to the single life. I've also coached single people who feel the desire to become more in touch with their own bodies and the bodies of others, and in developing the interpersonal skills they long to have in order to develop mutually satisfying intimate relationships.
I enjoy working in partnership with a psychotherapist or counselor, in the traditional IPSA format where the therapist guides the process while I provide the more hands-on aspects of the work. Given my own professional training, I am also capable of working independently with clients and/or groups. As a coach, I operate on the holistic, wellness model, nurturing clients' strengths and talents while helping them achieve comfort and skill in their less-developed areas. Laughter, celebration of life, and exploring our ability to play are core parts of my time with clients. Mutual respect, trust, and confidentiality are essential, as they help clients develop the courage to explore new behaviors and become more fully expressive, sensuous human beings.
If you are curious about what sensuality or other types of relationship coaching might offer you, email to arrange a free initial phone session. For those who want to combine coaching with a trip to my beautiful part of New Mexico, short-term intensive sessions can be arranged, with the possible inclusion of lodging. My partner is also IPSA trained, so we offer couples the unique option of working with a M/F coaching pair. If you are a therapist looking for a co-professional to lead the hands-on portion of your work with clients, please contact me, as I love collaboration.
Here's to soaring like eagles and guiding our lives like a beautiful "ship in the midst of the sea" of sometimes stormy, sometimes balmy, but always challenging contemporary life!
