I’m Maxine 

I’m so glad you’re here.  Here’s a bit about my education and why I do this work. 

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 trauma healing and transformational coaching. 

My Education… 

I’m a certified Somatic Sex Educator and Sexological Bodyworker, with the last 10+ years spent working with individuals and couples. I’ve trained with many incredible coaches and bodyworkers from around the world and have a deep passion for lifelong learning.  

I’m a graduated ontological life coach with an ICF certified program, and am in my advanced year of study with Somatic Experiencing International.

My Story… 

My passion for my work comes from my own history of battling disembodiment.  In my early 20’s I struggled with chronic dysregulation.  This led to a long bout of using whatever vices I could to cope with an inescapable sense of overwhelm.  

Coming out of chronic patterns of dissociation was a long haul.  In much of the early days I was in chronic freeze, isolated, and felt strongly that I has to pull myself up by my bootstraps to heal myself.  

My journey became exponentially easier when I started calling in support and stopped trying to do it all on my own.  Despite my struggles I had many gifts to tap into.

Having transformative experiences in the realm of sexuality and Tantra gave me a touchstone for releasing my body’s patterns of intergenerational trauma and orienting back to life’s goodness. As I continued to heal my own nervous system it became clearer that working with others on the healing path was a natural way forward.   

It’s been a wild journey that’s brought me to hold this space.  It’s a testament to personal discovery, unwavering resilience and healing through the body’s wisdom.  I have a continued commitment to personal growth and inquiry that have been at the the foundation of my practice
