JustBodies Coaching Sessions are available for individuals and people in all types of relationships. I also offer coaching specific to people impacted by pregnancy: Intimacy Doula Services (described below). If you are curious if coaching is a good fit for you needs, please read below, visit the page "Is JustBodies for Me?", and/or contact me directly.
My coaching sessions differ from talk-based therapy, as I use primarily somatic (body-based) practices. I find this approach to be particularly useful when dealing with issues of the body, sexuality, and intimacy, because the body can often move through spaces where the mind is stuck. Sessions can take place in person, by phone or video call.
A session with me might include:
- Assertive communication coaching
- Therapeutic role play and boundary work
- Clothed bodywork
- Identifying core erotic desires
- Somatic (body-based) Sex Education (sexual wellness and embodied practices)
- Anatomy awareness
- Sharing aspects of your intimate/sexual history, current intimate/sexual activity, and future intimate/sexual desires
- Expressive practices (i.e. transformational theater, creative expression, intuitive movement, storytelling)
Your initial session will be an opportunity for us to get to know each other and assess our compatibility. If we move forward, we will create of a series of sessions based on your intentions. For information on fees, please visit the fees page or contact me at 602-266-0949.
JustBodies Intimacy Doula Services are a blend of doula practices, relationship coaching, and somatic sex education. As an Intimacy Doula, I focus on supporting people’s sex lives and intimate communication during the pre-pregnancy/pre-birth and postpartum time. The sessions can be completely tailored to your needs, just as a birth doula’s support might be directed by what you want. These services are also available to people who are planning to bring children into their lives in ways other than pregnancy or who are not yet pregnant.
Your initial session will be an opportunity for us to get to know each other, envision, and design the services you desire. For information on fees, please visit the fees page or contact me at 602-266-0949.
NOTE: as an Intimacy Doula I do not attend births, but our sessions may take place in your home, upon arrangement.
I work with commitment to cultural humility, and enjoy working with people of all races, ethnicities, sizes, gender identities, ages*, class backgrounds, sexual orientations, abilities, cultures, and religions; single people and people in any type of relationship (intercultural, interracial, LGBTQIA*, monogamous, platonic, polyamorous and/or open) are welcome to JustBodies services. My approach is directly informed by my decades of experience with experiential diversity education, anti-oppression work, restorative justice, expressive arts therapy, as well as my training as a Somatic Sex Educator, Certified Sexological Bodyworker (CSB), and Doula (Birth Assistant).
*JustBodies Coaching is only for people over 18 years of age. Some trainings and workshops are designed specifically for youth and families, in which people under 18 may attend with permission from or in the company of a parent or guardian.
