Perhaps this is familiar....
Lynn and Rowan walked into my office one evening after a busy work day. Lynn flopped onto the leather sofa and crossed her legs. Her energy was heavy and expectant. As such consultations go, she explained to me that Rowan was a great guy and their lives and relationship were ‘pretty good’. In fact, she mentioned it several times, as clients often do when they really, really want me to know something. Swinging her shoe back and forth from her toe, she breathed a weighty, troubled sigh. And before she uttered another word, tears welled in her eyes. She apologized for this, as for her, the teary response seemed disproportionate to what she was about to tell me. After all, sex isn’t a big deal, it certainly doesn’t justify tears.
Except for when it does.
Rowan looked down at the floor. Partly ashamed and partly overwhelmed, he seemed familiar with this tableau – and for no reason other than experience, so was I. Here were two lovers, strangers to me, but not to each other, stuck in a bind around sex that is all too common.
“I love him and I love our relationship but I’m just not feeling ‘it’ anymore” she said.
“I’m not sure how much longer I can do this – like this”.
“Do what?” I inquired
“Our relationship – the sex I mean. I just don’t want it any more. I used to love sex, I used to really look forward to it, but something has died within me. It’s breaking Rowan’s heart.”
“It looks most certainly like it’s breaking yours too” I replied. Lynn was visibly distressed by the current situation with her sex life. “What does it say about you that you feel like this?” I inquired.
More tears came and she raised her hands to her face to cover the pain she felt. “I feel broken, defective. I shouldn’t be feeling like this, but yet – I do.”
“What’s broken”? I whispered to her gently. “What’s defective?” She looked confused because I didn’t immediately concur that she was the problem.
The Desire Series helps demystify erotic desire by making it part of your everyday life. It offers you tried and tested transformational wisdom and skills to stop struggling and start loving.
I get it. Most people feel incredibly alone when they’re struggling with low desire and a lagging sex life. When you're 'in' it, it's easy to believe everyone else is having better sex than you, and even more sex than you. When resentment starts to build you feel even more awkward addressing sex and taking the steps toward change feels even harder. Deciding to make a change feels BIG. You feel that if you don’t want sex, there is something wrong; then you feel broken or damaged in some way. You become afraid that it may spell disaster for your relationships or it will change the way your partner/s feel about you. You believe that sex is straight-forward. You're horny - so you have sex, right? That being in the mood is essential to having great sex and wanting it all the time. So when you don't experience it this way it's easy to think you are the problem.
So many people think they're defective because for them, the mood never or rarely comes. I know this feeling. I've been one of these people too. But the truth is desire is not about luck and just being in the mood. It's about knowledge, wisdom & strategy.

Like with anything worthwhile, if we want to master something, we need to invest in it. To learn it. Practice it and dedicate some time to it. Sex is one of those things.
This is a program for people ready to tackle the discomfort of mismatched desire and rise to the challenge of rebooting your sex life. Even if your partner is not yet on board, you can start alone as the process is an invaluable complement to expanding your erotic intelligence. This course explores the known science and theory behind desire and also the esoteric knowledge of how to embrace your unique desire blueprint.
The techniques I share I didn’t learn in therapy school. In therapy school, you never talk about lust and passion. You never talk about desire. And you never talk about eroticism. This is why most therapists know nothing about sex and even fewer know about pleasure.This is why I made The Desire Series.
Most of these techniques I have learned from my hundreds of clients and thousands of hours in the chair (and a few in the bed too). I've studied what works. Exploring options and understanding that science alone is just the tip of the iceberg.
What research and science both confirm is strategy is key to maintaining desire, but without a clear path, without clear skills and without a shared vision – what’s the point?
But this program is not for everyone.
If you have experienced lifelong 'no desire' or feel you may be on the asexual spectrum, this program may not be for you.
If you are seriously on the edge of divorce, separation and chronic arguments, this course is not for you. This course is for people still in love or in like, who want to want sex again and have just lost their way.
Right now, you have two options...
You can continue as you have been, hoping things will get better, avoiding the frustration, underwhelm and disappointment of 'business-as-usual' sex or you can make the decision to do something different, to learn more about how to explore desire with confidence and support. Suitable for all genders, levels of interest and orientations. If you long to reclaim your erotic vitality, join me for The Desire Series.

So many of us get no sex education, limited sex education or simply do not know how to integrate the information we find about sex online. Many of us have no one to talk to about this stuff and some of us don’t feel comfortable even discussing this with our partners. There is still a stigma about seeing a sex therapist or asking for help because we are expected to just magically know how sex works, as if sex is natural and everything we need to know gets downloaded by magic with no effort on our part at all. But none of this is true. Just like learning to paint, draw or cook, we must learn from someone who knows more than we do, at least to get us started on new techniques.
Imagine approaching sex with same curiosity and excitement you feel about taking a new class instead of dread or awkwardness. Imagine having the skills to be able to really understand yourself, your body and your partner’s body and truly share that with another.
Like with anything worthwhile, if we want to master something, we need to invest in it. To learn it. Practice it and dedicate some time to it. Sex is one of those things. Right now you have two options. You can continue as you have been, hoping things will get better, avoiding the frustration, underwhelm and disappointment of 'business-as-usual' sex or you can make the decision to do something different, to learn more about sex, pleasure desire, touch, the body and so much more.
I am super excited to have these offerings for you and I look forward sharing my knowledge and expertise to help you create a life worth loving.
