Hi, I’m Maxine
I’m passionate about empowering people to feel at home in their bodies. I take a holistic approach to health and happiness, with my roots in Tantra, somatic theory and transformational coaching.
I’m a certified Somatic Sex Educator (The Institute for the Study of Somatic Sex Education), with much of the last 10 years spent working with individuals and couples. I’ve had the opportunity to study with some amazing teachers – Margot Anand at her Love, Sex and Awakening course on Big Island Hawaii, David Cates and his work of expanding intimacy through co-regulation and deep safety, as well as Caffyn Jesse – one of the co-founders and pioneers of Somatic Sex Education. I’m currently completing my certification as an ontological life coach.
My passion for my work comes from my own history of battling disembodiment, trauma, addiction and coping with overwhelm as a highly sensitive person. It’s been a wild journey that’s led to an incredible process of personal discovery, ever deepening self love and the magic of healing through the body’s wisdom. I have a continued commitment to personal growth, relationship with spirit and supportive community building that have been the foundation of my practice.
I live in Victoria, BC, on the traditional lands of the Lekwungen speaking people. Here I do most of my writing, visioning and recharging. I host my in-person sessions from a heritage loft studio in the heart of downtown.
Some of my sessions invite in-person work to expand on tools of consent and co-regulation. My loft studio is an oasis in the heart of Victoria. Here I support clients using tools of Somatic Sex Education – Including breath, sound and client directed touch. It’s equipped with a deluxe memory foam massage table, consultation area, bathroom and many other loving details to create a welcoming atmosphere.
My studio is a three story walk up and is not wheelchair accessible at this time. If you have mobility challenges please let me know and I’d be happy to make other accommodations.
