JustBodies Coaching Sessions are available for individuals and people in all types of relationships.
My coaching sessions differ from talk-based therapy, as I use primarily somatic (body-based) practices. This body-based strategy is 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. My methods combine movement with mind-set, playfulness with deep listening, and patience with positive encouragement. I create a non judgemental space for the spectrum of emotions that arise when we spend time with our bodies. My approach draws on my training as a Somatic Sex Educator and Doula (Birth Assistant), as well as two decades working as an facilitator in the fields of diversity and inclusion, anti-oppression and liberation, restorative justice, healing and expressive arts. Sessions can take place in person, by phone or video call.
If you are interested in coaching services, please schedule a complimentary consultation call here. If you are curious if JustBodies Coaching is a good fit for you needs, please read below, visit the page "Is JustBodies for Me?", and/or contact me directly.
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.
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 and Doula (Birth Assistant).
