“There’s so much intimacy in understanding. Someone who doesn’t understand you is not going to know how to love you, because they don’t know who you are.”
Is intimacy coaching for me?
If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, then you have absolutely come to the right place.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is intimacy coaching?
Intimacy coaching is receiving the tools to connect with yourself and your partner on a deeper level as it pertains to your emotional, intellectual, physical, and spiritual desires.
What’s the difference between a coach and a therapist?
As a coach, I focus more on the present state of your relationship and providing you with actionable steps that brings you closer to receiving the intimacy that you desire. Coaching is goal driven as opposed to therapy focusing more on your past and reliving some of the experiences and events that may keep you stagnant. Due to my professional background in therapy, I have the ability to do that and at times certain topics may be touched on in order to communicate a clear vision but that will not be at the forefront of our working relationship.
I can’t be the only one seeking this kind of service, am I?
You are absolutely not. Discussing intimacy can still be rather taboo for many, even in modern society. Don’t be surprised that your peers are not discussing these issues with you. Intimacy can be a very vulnerable concern but it doesn’t mean you have to suffer in silence. I’m just excited that so many people are recognizing the need for rediscovering intimacy in their relationships.
What are your sessions like?
All I can say is I will not work harder than you. If you are truly serious about rediscovering passion, pleasure and connection in your marriage/relationship and you are willing to “show up” and be intentional about your desires, I will be here for you every step of the way.
During our sessions, you will receive active engagement, open mindedness, a non-judgmental stance, guidance, validation, understanding, resources, education, and inspiration. You will grow within this experience and you will feel more empowered. I will conduct your sessions individually and/or as a couple and we will explore your goals and create a plan just for you.
In-person and virtual sessions are available in my Tinley Park, IL office.
Will my partner need to be present for me to meet with you?
Not at all. I know many people tend to automatically think of sex when intimacy comes to mind, but that’s only one aspect. Many times, sex becomes a big issue in relationships because the other areas are left unfulfilled such as emotionally. I can also work with you individually to connect with yourself, as this can also lead to your confidence in tackling various intimacy issues within your relationship.
Do you accept insurance?
