There are three ways to engage my services:
- A twelve-week surrogate partner program designed for those looking to do in-depth work. These are conducted in-person in New York City.
- One-on-one phone consultations for people who cannot travel to New York.
- Intimacy workshops aimed at helping people better understand and communicate with their partner.
Surrogate Partner Program
The Surrogate Partner Program consists of twelve, one-hour, in-person weekly sessions in New York City. During this process, if it is determined that we need more time to accomplish your goals, we continue as needed—one or more sessions at a time.
The first session is a one-hour meet/greet and clinical intake that focuses on your personal sexual history.
In the next three sessions you learn foundational body awareness exercises to establish a solid understanding of sensation focused touch and how to access deep breath from the diaphragm. These are the fundamental tools for strengthening the connection between the mind and body and they will be utilized throughout the following sessions as new skills are taught and practiced in a safe environment.
The breath practice progresses to nonsexual touch exercises, helping you become present and in the moment with the sensations you are experiencing while giving and receiving touch. Gradually, we transition to more intimate touch interaction that directly addresses your specific issues. The overall goal is for you to overcome your challenges using these newfound skills with confidence, gaining the ability to directly apply them to your intimate life.
For people who do not live in New York City but travel here regularly on business, the program can be coordinated with your travel schedule.
I offer one-on-one consultations by phone for people who cannot travel to New York and are looking for referrals to resources in their area or to discuss a specific issue.
I offer two-hour intimacy workshops for small groups. Together in a safe and nurturing environment, people learn about specific emotional and physical blocks to intimacy and gain the communications skills and nonsexual techniques needed to help overcome them and better meet their and their partner’s needs. Workshops can be held wherever is convenient for the group—from clinics to a workshop participant’s home.
