Somatic Sex Education and Sexological Bodywork
Certified Sexological Bodyworker, The Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality, San Francisco, CA, 2013; Certified Somatic Sex Educator, Somatic Educators Association, Vancouver, BC, Canada, 2016.

I am a certified Somatic Sex Educator working with self-identified women and gender-fluid/gender non-conforming individuals in San Francisco, CA. I believe passionately in the right to sexual expression for every body and specialize in pelvic pain and education and advocacy with people with disabilities and illness.

Sexuality is a complex identity including relational, physiological, and emotional elements, but it is rooted in the lived experience of the body. I am particularly passionate about providing support when our bodies change. Perhaps things “just don’t work the same way” after surgery, injury, medical treatment, or the onset of chronic illness. Or perhaps sexual response and pleasure sensations are reduced after childbirth. Sexological Bodywork creates a safe container in which these concerns can be safely explored, understood, and transformed.

Maybe nothing has changed, per say…you just know there has to be more to your sexuality. You desire to connect deeply with your own desire, to REALLY know what you want, and to be able to express that to your partner(s). Together we can increase your capacity to experience and savor pleasure and develop the confidence and communication skills you need to bring your new-found pleasures into your intimate relationships.

My practice is trauma informed, and I am deeply committed to the primacy of emotional expression in the healing and learning processes. All of you is welcome in our sessions! But I never lose sight of the fact that your sexual yearnings and needs are rooted in and reaching for JOY. With “reverent irreverence” and a profound sense of play, I am honored to support your journey to manifest your fullest vision of your erotic self.
