Health, Wellness, and Intimacy Coaching for Men, Women, and Couples…
I’ve worked in the health and wellness field for over 18 years, and the interesting thing is when people ask me what I do I’m actually at a loss for words. The services I offer defy description or a label because I have no idea what I will be doing with a client until we talk. My intuition guides me through my past experiences and education to create a structure which is unique for each individual client. I’ve worked as a personal trainer since I was 22 years old, but I’m not a personal trainer; I’ve taught over 1000 Kundalini Yoga/Taoist/Tantra classes and workshops, but I am not a Yoga teacher; I’ve spoken with clients for 1000’s of hours about their mental/emotion/sexual/physical challenges, but I’m not a psycho-therapist; I hold a Masters in Physiology, but I am not a physiologist. I am teach Somatics, which requires that I let go of all preconceived notions about how anyone should be or how they should behave and through this openness I access over 20 years of knowledge and practice to aid my clients’ movement toward unity with all that they are. The work I do doesn’t define who I am and how I interact with my clients; it’s the interaction with you, the client, who molds the information and experience I have gained over the years into a structure which then defines what kind of practitioner I am for you.
