Hi, I’m Laura (she/they). I specialize in helping people reinvent their relationships with themselves, their bodies, their pleasure, their emotions, and their partners. My approach is de-shaming, sex-positive, and playful. I myself am bi-sexual and polyamorous, but you don’t have to be any of those things.
I am trained through the Somatica Institute, the global leader in sex and relationship coach training (accredited by The American Board of Sexologists International and the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists). I am also certified through The Life Coach School, the premier certifying school in cognitive-based coaching. My Ph.D. is from the University of California Davis (2015).
If you want to increase sexual desire, get rid of shame, love your body, connect better in intimacy, receive and give deep satisfying pleasure, rejuvenate stagnant relationships, and/or get what you truly want, you’ve come to the right place. My clients get tangible results and learn tools they can apply to live their fullest, most satisfying lives.
I am both a Coach and a Biologist. It’s been a winding path, which yours might have been too. If you are struggling, I get it. I see you. I had a lot of trauma growing up, and that made it really hard to connect with other humans. I had a hard time asking for (or even knowing) what I wanted.
But I learned, and so can you.
Once I found the right tools, it has been amazing how quickly I’ve been able to radically change my relationships and my enjoyment of my own erotic nature. Now, I’ve found that sharing these tools to help people love themselves and others better is the most fulfilling thing that I can do. I teach and use a blend of evidence-based, scientifically grounded cognitive (mind-based) and somatic (body-based) tools.
There is so much shaming around nearly everything about who we are. It’s 10 times worse when it comes to our sexual selves. On top of that, there is so much disconnection in the world, even between people who love each other.
It’s my mission to help you defeat shame, embrace your full nature including your erotic self, and learn to connect with others in ways that fully nurture you while honoring your independence.
