My Philosophy…

Inspired by my desire to deepen my relationship with my life, myself and the people around me, I have spent the last two decades inquiring, exploring and training in the realm of the erotic. I approach the erotic and sexuality with a spirit of mystery and a friendly curiosity in both my personal life and my work.

I believe being in and cultivating loving relationships is one of life’s motivating factors. There are many people seeking ways to enhance their relationships, deepen intimacy and develop and express a healthy sexual self. I am committed to model, promote and teach honest, compassionate communication practices regarding relationships and sexuality. As a Sex Educator I teach methods for creating a healthy and authentic erotic self while talking about the history of Western sexual constructs and their influences. My intentions are to help normalize sexuality as an integral facet in the creation of the truest expression of your unique self. I support relationships of every type, i.e. polyamory, KINK friendly, non-monogamy etc.

I believe that as we investigate who we are as sexual beings it opens up doorways into other aspects of our life. Our primary source of life force energy lies in the erotic and is an all-to-often untapped resource. Sex can be a vulnerable expression of our physical desires and yet it is frequently the place where deep accumulated shame comes to the forefront. I work with sexuality in partnership with the sacred to support you in moving through shame to access your greatest joy, connection and pleasure.

I will meet your desires and fears with love and acceptance. I will honor and support you right where you are and help you create opportunities for what you want to become. I am experienced at working with men, women and couples.

I am a certified Sexological Bodyworker and Somatic Sex Educator through the Erospirit Research Institute and a member of the Association of Certified Sexological Bodyworkers (ACSB). I have been on the teaching team for Somatic Sex Educator Certification Training at the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality and the Canadian Training in 2013. I’ve completed numerous private and group trainings in Tantra and Sacred Intimacy over the past two decades and have facilitated and coached many women’s, men’s and co-ed intimacy groups. I use body education, coaching and hands on experience to deepen erotic exploration. I completed my formal academic training with a Management degree from The University of Illinois and a degree from The Culinary Institute of America. I am located in the southern, Maine area, near Portland.
