Coaching Services

Confidential. Personalized. Experiential.

Whether your goal is better communication with your partner, better sex, better health, or a better life or career, I want to help you achieve it. Your Ideal Self is the person you are striving to become. For many, that person can seem nearly impossible to attain at times in our lives. People often focus on the end result they want without considering the steps, or small goals, that are necessary for them to accomplish.  We’ll set realistic goals together, and if you allow me to hold you accountable to those goals, you can and will achieve the results you want.

Confidential consultations can be in person, via phone, or by Skype. They can be one-on-one or with a couple. I offer my coaching sessions at a counseling office, private offices at co-working spaces, libraries, and coffee shops. I have even met clients for walks in the park and for help shopping at adult toy stores. 

What I do is talk-based and experiential, meaning there is no physical touch (other than a hug, a reassuring hand on the shoulder, or a high-five, when appropriate), and we may take field trips or go to events together, or you will be challenged to get out of your comfort zone all on your own. However, there are times when therapy with a psychologist or psychiatrist, bodywork with a licensed surrogate, or medical treatment from a physician are necessary for your needs. In these cases, I’m happy to refer you out for appropriate treatment, and in some cases, we can work together to take a holistic approach to your journey.

Home assignments help further your progress and it’s also key to our work together, especially if we meet via Skype or over the phone. I might offer readings from articles and books, videos or DVDs to watch, podcasts to listen to, websites to visit, or even stores to shop in.

It’s all about personalization. I am here to facilitate change, not just tell you what to do. This a collaborative process, and together we decide what your path to your Ideal Self looks like. I will push your boundaries, ask tough questions, and shake up your worldview a bit. The good news is, you’re probably ready for all these things if you’re here reading this right now.
