Welcome! I help women struggling with body image have deeply satisfying, heart-connected, joy-filled, intimate relationships.
I spent 30 years as a professional therapist, and received my first masters in social work specializing in women and sexual violence. After post-graduate work in group therapy, I went on to practice as a children’s and family counselor for several years before discovering my true passion as a somatic therapist and body confidence coach.
Early on - even (or especially) - when working with trauma, I discovered that traditional psychotherapy neglected the body. And in order to heal, the body must to be included in treatment. Even when the issues seemed unrelated - anxiety, depression, relationship challenges - the body was always a necessary part of whole healing. After all, your body is the one, persistent constant in your life: without IT, you don’t exist. How can one be free of suffering when one’s home is a battleground?
It became so clear to me that to feel comfortable and happy with our selves, we have to learn how to feel comfortable and happy with our bodies.
And there is no more potent way to experience your body than with your sexuality.
Indeed, sexuality is one of the most intense experiences of her body a woman can have. And to have a pleasurable experience, you want to feel pleasure in your body.
To enjoy sex, enjoy your body.
Sounds so simple, doesn’t it?
But when you can’t stand the way you look, or feel disconnected from how you feel, satisfying intimacy seems like an impossible dream.
I know this struggle. Deeply. As a survivor of childhood assault, I know personally what it feels like to be both completely disconnected from my body AND somehow at war with it.
So I created Ready for Intimacy — a movement-based, spiritual coaching and counseling program to help women feel comfortable and confident in their bodies so they can enjoy passionate, connected, and soul-satisfying intimacy.
There are loads of "great sex" programs out there.
I'm not one of them. I'm here to help you feel ready if you want them.
I'm here to help you feel great about YOU so you can feel great with someone else.
Helping women who are ready to transform their relationships with their bodies from one of suffering into one of joy.

“Ready for Intimacy quite literally changed my life. Janet guided me to undo years of trauma and she expertly lead me to reconnect to my body in a healthy and expansive way.
Her genuine compassion allowed me to safely express feelings I didn't even know were keeping me captive and patterns that were holding me back from my true self. Her intuitive prowess knew when to hold space and when to dig deeper which allowed a true reconnection to the wisdom on my own body.
Being equipped with the tools of her course, I’ve been able to deepen the connection to myself, move forward in challenging relationships, step into my true potential and embrace my true worth. My only regret I have is that I wasn't equipped with the tools of this course sooner.”

"All of you is welcome when you work with Janet. When I recently hosted my own private virtual group immersion, Janet was my first-choice to lead my girls through a session of deep body/mind/soul work.
Their before and after in working with Janet was astounding. I could physically see their transformations happen before my eyes. I am so grateful she agreed to be one of my guest teachers, and I am forever grateful for the gift she is and all that she brings to the world."
“I’ve been struggling my entire life with accepting my body and understanding why it is a source of discomfort for me. Janet helped me see what was standing in the way of loving myself and my body – and more importantly, she offered tools to break through the mental logjams that impede my ability to do so.
She’s a smart, wise, caring person, and every interaction with her feels like a gift. It’s good to have Janet on your side.”
"Janet is an incredibly gifted teacher. She has the rare ability to inspire people to do things they didn’t know they could do, and to discover things in themselves they didn’t know were there. And to have a great time doing it. She leaves people changed for the better"
