CERTIFIED SEX COACH AND CLINICAL SEXOLOGIST,
CERTIFIED LIFE COACH, CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINER
I’m a divorced, cis female, mother of two boys in my early 40’s. I was a theater major and worked at a shop-from-home TV network before leaving the workforce to have children. That feels like a lifetime ago...
While not particularly active in my youth, I got hooked on group fitness and became a fitness instructor after gaining some weight from pregnancy. I enjoyed a ten plus year career in group fitness and personal training. Before long, my personal training clients told me they wished they could have my help in their personal lives the way I empowered them at the gym. Enter Life Coaching!
Since 2017, I have been fully committed to coaching people of all ages, genders, and sexualities to acknowledge their hesitation and anxiety about sex, and finally have the fulfilling sexual experiences they deserve.
You might be thinking "Amanda, how does *anyone* get into the business of sex coaching?!" To make a long story short, I was raised in a nurturing, sex positive household. My mom grew up in a typically "sheltered" home and didn’t want to raise me the same repressed way she was brought up. Because I was never taught to feel shame about my body or with regard to sex, I have an insatiable curiosity about all things sex related.
When we take away the shame and stigmas around sex, we can learn and grow in confidence. And confidence is the magic ingredient to great sex!
After life coaching for many years, I finally became a clinical sexologist and certified sex coach.
I can see the problems so many folks have from not talking openly about sex. What I've found is that most people try all the usual stuff…internet videos, self help books, talking to their friends, and blaming their circumstances for unfulfilling sex (I’m single/My partner is insensitive/My kids are more important than sex).
The reason this "usual stuff" doesn’t work is people are confused about what sex is - and what it isn't. Most people have a sixth-grade education on sexual anatomy (at best). We don't learn about sex from our parents or trusted relatives so we end up learning about it through pornography or hearing about it "through the grapevine". Without a healthy foundation to work from, we learn what sex is supposed to look like and how we should act and what we should want even when those standards are impossible to replicate or don't align with what feels good. Our culture has told us that pleasure is not important and it couldn't be further from the truth!
I offer exercises and activities to my clients to help them identify what they really want in the bedroom, communicate those values with their partner(s), and feel competent about what they are doing in the bedroom.
If you’re ready to finally get the confidence, clarity, and courage that you want and need to have (the right way), then I promise you’ll find it through my coaching.
