I am currently booking 1:1 Immersion Retreats in my home studio in West Hollywood, CA, as well as cities across the globe.
There is nothing like immersion. It can be the secret to unlocking your challenges and diving deeper into your desires, while escaping from the day to day. Learning, vulnerability and exploration can be restorative and even fun. Let me guide the way as we have the time to go deeper.
What you can expect:
-Explorations in full body touch
-Explorations of sexual history, desires, and intentions
-Playful instruction to support you meeting erotic goals
-An opportunity to explore successful tools of intimacy and communication
-Shared meals (optional & recommended), and reflective time
-One Virtual Session - 50 minutes
-Days start at 10a and end each day by 5p
Some clients who are visiting from out of the city or state might choose to stay with me during their retreat. Additional costs will apply. Please inquire with Court about Residential Immersion Retreats.
As an intimacy coach and somatic sexologist in Los Angeles CA , I work in a non-judgmental space while offering body-based learning, including; coaching in breath, movement, and sound. I address concerns such as body shame & awareness, boundary-setting, communication, ageism, anatomy, sensate focus, intentional touch, erotic trance, kink, feeling stuck in sexual roles and identities (are you always dominant, always submissive?), and other teachings about sex. My work draws from sexological bodywork, tantra, & BDSM practices and is designed to nurture, deepen and/or awaken the sensual self.
I am currently booking clients for multiple-day sessions. My experience in seeing and feeling transformation in immersion style formats has led me to offer these experiences to my clients in this way. A full day is 6-7 hours with an hour break for lunch. (*Meals are included in session fee). Sessions are fully tailored and customized to your personal goals and intentions.
Preferred payment methods are credit, cash, CashApp, or Venmo to @TheBodyVox. I do not accept checks.
All Sessions must be paid one week prior to arrival. An Invoice will be sent at the time of booking.
Please inquire about payment plans.
DEPOSITS: The deposit is equal to the first day’s session. This deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable should you cancel.
CANCELLATION POLICY: (AS OF OCT. 2023)
The Deposit is non-refundable and cannot be transferred, however, if you have booked a multiple-day immersion, the other days (if already paid in full) can be applied to a retreat or workshop in the future, solely based on Court’s availability. In other words, cancellations made within 72 hours of the scheduled appointment may be put towards future sessions or workshops, minus the deposit. No monies will be refundable or transferable if cancellation is made after 72 hours.
I work individually with clients to somatically coach them into deepening their pleasure, enhancing or accessing arousal, and expanding bodily awareness. Somatic Sex Education brings in practices on effective communication skills, the research on the connection of physiology and the mind, boundary building, and enthusiastic and consensual one-way touch.
Similar to my work with individuals, I help couples or those in relationship, connect somatically with each other. Through talk , touch, breath work, and playful activities, I help couples actualize a stronger sense of self, and deeper connection and understanding with one another.
The aim of group gatherings and workshops is to raise a collective and individual consciousness through touch and body based experiential learning. Working with small groups of people allows individuals to see themselves in others, feel and sense a collective energy, better understand boundaries, and connect with others in profound ways. See my Events section for more details.

Sex therapy and sex coaching are similar in many ways and also very different. Both modalities are therapeutic in nature and focus on the growth of a particular client or clients, but the main difference is that psychotherapy focuses primarily on the mind, while somatic coaching focuses on the listening and atonement of the body. In my work as a sex coach I often partner will sex therapists to create a stronger support team for my clients, and depending on the client’s needs, I may suggest they work with a traditional sex therapist, or talk therapist prior to coming to work with me, so that they have a stronger foundation and a shared lexicon to support the more embodied work that I facilitate.
Psychotherapy is a degree that is obtained by a college or university and is governed and licensed by each state in the US. In order to become a practicing therapist one must complete specific required studies, pass the required exams to be licensed, as well as complete any additional studies to practice specific types of psychology. In this case, sex therapists have to undergo additional training and studies to be able to label themselves with this moniker. All therapists must also adhere to a strict code of ethics and confidentiality. If for whatever reason these codes of ethics and confidentiality are broken, a client may hold a therapist accountable through the licensing board, and the therapist may run the risk of losing their license to practice psychotherapy, as well as other ramifications .
On the other hand, many sex coaches in Los Angeles CA do not have official or traditional training, while others, like myself do. My studies include certification programs which all have their own governing boards, and they include: Somatic Sex Education Association (SSEA), Association of Sexological Bodyworkers (ACSB), International Professional Surrogate Association (IPSA), World Association of Sex Coaches (WASC), and Urban Tantra. In addition to these studies and certifications, I am an ongoing student of rope bondage, practices in BDSM and kink, as well as breath work and movement practices, and studies in modern hypnotherapy and meditation. As you can imagine, although I hold my undergrad degree from UCLA, they do not offer studies in many of the things I have expertise in. The work of a somatic coach is still very much on the fringes of societal norms, and therefore, when looking for a somatic sex and intimacy coach its important to do your research, and even someone who is very experienced and learned, still might not be the right fit for you. Trust your intuition when choosing a therapist of coach. This listening will serve you well in your process.
Psychotherapy tends to garner more respect and admiration in the general field, mostly because it is accepted by mainstream culture and society as a valid form of healing and growth. And while it is a valid form of healing and growth, for many it has its limitations, to which people seek out sex and intimacy coaches. Many of my clients have done extensive work with talk therapists and even sex therapists, and they have gotten to a point where talking about their “stuff” just isn’t moving the needle anymore, and a more practical, embodied approach is desired. That’s where the work of a somatic sex coach can be a valuable and important next step.
The biggest difference between a traditional sex therapist and a somatic sex coach, is that a sex therapist cannot and will not touch their clients. As a somatic practitioner adhering to the guidelines of sexological bodywork, based in Los Angeles CA, my somatic practice is legal in various states including California and New York. As a somatic sex coach, curriculum can be taught through talk, touch, breath, movement, sound, choice and voice, and body based exercises. There is a bit more freedom in what is possible, and what types of learning can take place.
For some people talk therapy is the right approach, while others who learn more by doing or experiencing might benefit from working with a somatic sex coach. What’s true is that when you commit to growth, change, and self expansion, there is no wrong journey or choice, it is all about collecting data from the experiences themselves and then continue in the direction that feels most nourishing. Being in action around your own process is better than being stagnant.
If you have been searching for a sex therapist in Los Angeles and have stumbled upon my work, you may find that the way I teach and the way I work with clients is more suited to your learning style. If that is the case, and you want to learn more about my work and better understand if it is right for you, reach out to met at email@example.com to set an exploratory call. And if a sex therapist in Los Angeles is still what you desire, I have a list of folks I refer - just ask.
As a surrogate partner (sometimes referred to as a sex surrogate) I help gay and trans men with concerns or issues they have around intimacy, relationships, sexuality, communication, dating, and body image. I specialize in, but am certainly not limited to, helping men overcome physical challenges and concerns, and guiding them to improve their abilities in creating healthy relationships with other men. Part of the client-surrogate process is that in our work together, we create a mini relationship with a beginning, middle, and end. This can be a transformative process for both the client and myself.
In my surrogacy practice I work with clients in conjunction with a sex therapist. The client sees their therapist for verbal therapy and they see me for experiential sessions. By seeing both the surrogate partner and therapist the client has a holistic process which also provides a high level of support and opportunity to resolve major issues and heal past traumas.
The sessions are designed to re-build client’s self-confidence, communication skills, understanding of sensuality, and learn about physical and emotional intimacy in a safe space. This is accomplished through structured exercises in communication, breathing techniques, meditation, relaxation, touching techniques and social skills development.
My practice is based in Los Angeles, California. I am available for intensives in other US cities and internationally.
