Relationship and Intimacy

Guiding People Toward Mastering the Art of Loving Consciously.

You can have a safe and exciting connection 

Would you seek a guided journey if that guide did not know how to show you the way?

You've known that something has needed to change because you haven't felt as connected or quite as loved in your relationship as you did in the past. Maybe you're not feeling like that fire is there anymore and wonder if you can get it back. 

Enough couples might not even seek help and just end it. I'm glad you're here, because it tells me that you BOTH care about your relationship AND you and your partner are important.

I don't believe in showing you how to repair, reconnect and truly deepen your relationship if I didn't know how to do it myself, or help hundreds of couples learn how to reconnect, love deeper and get back the playfulness.

What does that look like?

You'll understand how each of your learned relationship interactions are keeping you stuck instead of moving you forward.

You'll replace the unsuccessful communication with a more rich and effective style.


You'll learn the art of listening to each other.

You'll see what each other needs and know why.


You'll start sharing love how each of you need it and feeling connected.

​I help each partner heal and grow, deepen your connection, then guide you to the next level in your relationship. What's the next level?  

  • Feeling whole AND connected

  • Mastering masculine and feminine attraction

  • Deepening your intimacy

  • Keeping your heart open

  • Co-creating love and sacred union

  • Sharing your truth with gratitude

  • "Response-availability" for your partner

  • Honoring each others experience

This kind of connection from each other is powerful... it's loving! And I show you how to get there.


Both of you have needs for love and connection.


I help people re-connect and find a deeper intimacy and love, one that is filled with safety and trust. Find the freedom from the hurt and pain. The love you once had or want to develop with each other is just waiting for you. The compassion and tenderness is right there under the surface. You'll be shown how to uncover it. Together.


Learn to replace reactivity with a loving response. Learn the communication tools to connect and to share so that your partner will hear you, will understand what you're going through, and give with an open heart. You and your partner will develop the tools to listen and respond.


Hundreds of couples have healed the heartache and grown through the struggles in their relationship. You can create the love you've always wanted. And you both deserve it.





Whether you’re an individual, a family looking for help, or a straight or LGBTQ couple - regardless of your personal values or beliefs - you will be regarded with compassion and acceptance. My therapy sessions are designed to strengthen your confidence, increase your relational and emotional intelligence, help you practice valuable skills and assist you in the healing process. Take a look at my services, and allow me to invite you into my office in Newport Beach, CA.
