“By ‘more pleasure, health, and intimacy,’ I also mean deeper, more authentic experiences of what it means to connect with your own body, your desires, your unique erotic nature, and that of your partner(s)’s. Discover yourself and how you love, then bring that to the world.”

Do you feel something is lacking in your sex life? Are you worried about the way your body functions or responds? Do you feel guilt, shame, or a lack of satisfaction? If there is something that concerns you about your sex life and intimacy with others, I am here to help.
To support your authentic goals for sexual health and wellness, and exploration of your erotic gifts, I’ll first seek to understand what’s right for you, where you are, where you want to be, who you want to be with, and most of all, how you’d like to feel.
Then, by drawing on my training in human sexuality (sexology), expertise in sexuality counseling and hypnosis, along with adult “sexual enrichment education,” I am confident I can assist you in gaining more of the confidence, knowledge and skills you want to rebirth a more vibrant erotic life and more satisfying intimacy in your relationships.
In addition, such sessions may be helpful with regard to a range of concerns, including worries about your erection; difficulties with orgasm; vaginismus and other kinds of pelvic pain; body shame/body image; sexual lifestyles; gender issues; kink; non-monogamy and polyamory; partner communication; affection and bonding; and more.
I welcome consenting adults who are in all kinds of relationships, with all kinds of preferences and orientations, diverse gender identities and embodiment, as well as people from diverse cultures, ethnicity, abilities, and so on. My practice is client centered and I respect your unique needs and goals. I am also a “Kink Aware Professional” on the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom list.
General Health and Wellness Support Through Hypnosis
Sexual health is supported by overall physical and emotional health. It’s hard to “get physical” when you’re hurting, discouraged, or facing the impact of medical issues.
As a complementary provider of hypnosis (aka “hypnotherapy”), I also offer hypnosis to encourage and support your general health and wellness through such things as smoking cessation, habit control, weight management, and more. Hypnosis can also be helpful for managing some aspects of certain conditions (IBS, hot flashes, and more). Hypnosis is a proven help for childbirth preparation and postpartum wellness. It is also helpful for managing worry and reducing stress, and for increasing a positive outlook in life. I’ll help you learn helpful strategies and mind-body skills, including self-hypnosis.
So, though I specialize in hypnosis for sexual concerns, I am also qualified to assist you with many other health and wellness problems.
Here in an example of hypnosis to boost your sense of well-being, heightened awareness and confidence:
