Sessions really vary depending on the personal goals and intentions of the client. First sessions start with a dialogue about your sexual history, any concerns you have, and your intention for our work together. This first session is also about creating trust between us, and each session will build upon this. Together, we will continuously create a safe enough space for you to learn and expand. I use the word "safe-enough" because this work does involve pushing your boundaries a little bit, getting you out of your comfort and safety zones. This is in fact why you have elected my services, because what you have been doing is no longer working for you/serving you, or you are just seeking something different. That said, we will never move into an exercise or space that feels too out of alignment for you. You will always have choices, and we can move forward or backward at your own pace.
Great question! The biggest distinction is that in my coaching work, I see individuals and couples 1:1 and with surrogate partner therapy, I always work in tandem with a therapist and their client, so we work in a triad.
In both practices, I teach clients body based skills that can help them in their sexual and personal relationships with themselves and others.
While the bulk of my clients are men, I don’t discriminate based on gender, sexuality or body types. Everyone deserves to find erotic agency and sexual expression that is right for them.
All bodies and identities are welcome here!
Yes. I do work with couples and enjoy it very much. There is something very magical and beautiful about two (or more) people coming together, and committing to individual and collective learning and expansion, and I love to be a part of that.
I do see clients for extended intensive sessions that can last from 3 hours to 8 hours or even a span of 3 days. I also offer workshops that offer opportunities for immersive and extended learning in a group setting.

I am certified by IPSA, the International Professional Surrogates Association, and more can be learned via their website at http://www.surrogatetherapy.org/
While most of my clients are based in Los Angeles and surrounding areas, as well as New York City, I am available to travel to other states and countries. Advanced time and discussion is needed before this is possible.
With coaching, I work with clients via Skype, Zoom, Google Hangouts, and Facetime. Our work together remotely will be different than if we were in the same room together, and can also be just as impactful. Our sessions together over video chat or phone will be followed by solo assignments that can be practiced in between sessions.
My work with surrogate partner therapy can only be done in person.
