Love and intimacy coaching
If you're skeptical about coaches and the coaching industry, I get you.
Before I completed my coach training, I thought the whole industry was full of scammers.
And...it sort of is.
Without a governing body (like the ones therapists and psychologist belong to), anyone can hang up a shingle and call themselves a coach.
Great for them, not so much for you.
A lot of people call themselves coaches when in reality, they're closer to consultants and advisors.
They'll tell you exactly what you need to do, without fully understanding you and your situation.
I'll never tell you what to do because I'm not an expert on your life.
I believe that you hold an incredible amount of wisdom.
“Each of you is perfect the way you are ... and you can use a little improvement.”

My job is to lovingly hold your feet to the fire as we explore what you're wanting to work on, where you want to go, and how you're going to get there.
My job is to create a safe space for you to get real about what's preventing you from getting what you're looking for.
My job is to help create awareness, responsibility, and action for lasting change to happen.
And my area of expertise is the .
"I grew into my heart and began cultivating a richer understanding of the love that I am intrinsically worthy of receiving. I leaned into those unmet parts of my soul and learned to show up for myself in a way I'd never been able to. Shaun welcomed me at the start of each session with a full, warm laugh before he handed me the tools to do my work and I will forever be grateful for what we built together."
― Anne Jolin Rissling, former client and lovebird
I work with desires, needs, and boundaries. And then I help you come up with the language to communicate them.
Underneath that, I bring proven coaching models to help you make sense of it all.
I help people get clear on their needs, how to get them met, and what happens when people say no.
My clients go deep with me on how to set boundaries, what consequences are appropriate, and what to do when people violate them.
Together, we'll come up with the very best ways to have challenging conversations.
If what you're doing isn't working anymore (or never really worked), it's time to try something new.
"It's okay to ask for help outside of therapy. My therapist isn't the end all be all of my healing. I need different things from different people. Finding Shaun taught me to trust my intuition when it comes to identifying people who have the capacity to help me live my best life."

In coaching with me, you'll benefit from my years of experience working with clients, giving #freeloveadvice, and interviewing experts in the field of intimacy and sexuality.
I'll share with you insight that I've gained during my lifelong journey towards cultivating love with myself and those around me.
What are my credentials, you ask?
I have a degree in Communication Theory from the University of California, I'm a California state-certified rape crisis counselor, and a Concordia University certified personal coach.
Credentials are nice, because they let us lean on the competencies we've learned.
But life is the ultimate teacher, and I'm proud to say that I've lived a full one so far (with so much more to come).
In my past life, I've been a taxi driver, a successful sales professional, an erotic masseur, a hostel owner, and a sex educator.
My life has been dedicated to serving others, and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon.
If you choose to work with me, we'll walk the path together, we'll brainstorm together, and heck, we might even cry together.
Unfortunately, I'm no longer offering private coaching calls. To find out about my group coaching programs, my upcoming courses, and my lovebird club, join the email list.
