1-On-1 Intimacy Coaching
(Virtual or In-Person)

What is an intimacy coach?

An intimacy coach is someone who helps you feel safer, closer, more understood by, and more connected to your lover or partner.

Comfort with intimacy in a relationship is something most people learn as children. Unfortunately, many of us grow up without positive experiences around physical or emotional closeness. And so we don’t feel safe engaging in that as adults. An intimacy coach provides you with that sense of safety so that we can tackle issues around physical and emotional intimacy.

 

We are all individuals with our own emotional histories. When we try to connect, we pick up on our own as well as the other person’s feelings. We feel it resonate in our own nervous systems. We each have defensive mechanisms we’ve picked up to protect ourselves. So many of us are conditioned to shut down when we sense a potential fear of rejection. Deeper intimacy comes when we learn to navigate our own defensive mechanisms, and learn how to keep connected with someone else through all of their intimate challenges as well.

 

We all want to be seen, accepted, and to be able to explore connection. When we can be fully present and stay connected to our own pleasure, and that of our partner, our fears melt away and real intimacy and eroticism is possible.

How does intimacy coaching work?

Intimacy coaching starts with the foundations of vulnerability.

Using a holistic, loving, and systematic approach to intimacy, I work with you to build a two-way authentic relationship between us within the container of our sessions. By getting to know each other and learning how to connect, we can navigate your blocks, triggers, and desires from a space free of judgment and without fear of rejection. By tracking my own reactions to you – and letting you know how they are impacting me in a constructive way – both of us bring our authentic selves into our sessions, creating a feedback loop that is integral to your growth. You practice with me just like you would with your partner.

Comfort with intimacy needs to be built from the ground up. Through deepening embodiment, increasing presence, and enhancing emotional awareness, you can begin to relax into an intimate connection.

There are two main kinds of intimacy that I can guide you in: emotional intimacy and sexual intimacy.

What can I expect during a session?

Currently, I am only available for intimacy coaching sessions by phone or via Zoom. I am periodically available for private in-person counseling sessions in New York City.

Intimacy coaching can cover many topics – including attachment wounds, embodiment, cultivating presence, emotional awareness, physical and sexual intimacy, and emotional intimacy.

Sessions are one-hour long. You will need access to Zoom, the ability to hear audio and a microphone for speaking into, and a quiet private area.

 

All of our virtual sessions are fully clothed and there is no explicit behavior. If our sessions are in-person, I do not have physical contact beyond hugs or handshakes. I may offer emotional support by placing a hand on my client’s back or arm when needed, but this is the extent of touch in an in-person talk coaching session with me.

Is working with me right for you?

Do you want to feel closer to people and less self-conscious in your interactions? Do you want to practice emotional or erotic intimacy? Then engaging with me might be a good idea.

 

While you may think of the capacity for intimacy as something a person has or doesn’t have, the truth is that it can be learned at any age. Working with me can be fun and rewarding, and you can also practice with experiences that take you out of your comfort zone.

My approach can help you to move beyond shame, clarify your needs and boundaries, live and emotionally connected and erotically embodied life, and experience the joy and satisfaction of great sex and authentic relationships. My method is based on up-to-date neuroscience research about how people learn, connect, and experience personal growth.

 

I will respect your boundaries. If there is ever something you don’t feel ready for or comfortable with, make sure you tell me right away so I can take the coaching to a comfortable pace for you. There is no need to push yourself too hard in this arena – taking your time and respecting your own pace will actually help our work go faster in the long run because you will be able to stay present and not shut down.

 

Only intimacy with the self will bring about true healing.
