A once a month night of adult discussion, candid sharing, meaningful connection and live intimacy coaching for anyone looking for real talk about what makes relationships thrive. Register here.

 Let me ask you.

—> Do you wish you could speak candidly with other adults about the challenges of intimacy?

—> Are you struggling with some aspect of intimate relating but not sure where to turn to fill the gaps?

—> Does intimacy coaching intimidate you, but yet you find yourself curious to learn what it’s all about?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above, the 2022 Intimacy Salons may be for you. Each event limited to 30 participants.

Starting Wednesday February 16th, I will be offering a once a month, 90-minute evening of learning, play, connection and real talk about real intimacy issues that plague most people. You will get the chance to see what intimacy coaching is all about while learning intimacy skills in a friendly, welcoming and down-to-earth space.

When you sign up, you will get:

– Short, sweet and to-the-point training in the kind of intimacy issues most people find challenging

– Access to simple tools you can immediately apply to improve your ability to connect with others

– Participation in a community of adults who value growth and learning while having fun doing it

– A low cost, low time investment towards improving your intimacy skills without breaking the bank or taking over your schedule

– The living reminder that you are not the “only one” who wrestles with these kinds of things

– Practices that you can engage on your own (after the salon is over) to deepen and enrich the quality of your relationships

 Each salon will include:

– A presentation on each month’s intimacy theme

– Community discussion and sharing

– Partner practices to help you go deeper with the material

– Q&A including questions you can ask me and others on the call

– A live intimacy coaching example with one of the participants

– Practices you can take home with you to continue the learning

I have spent nearly 10 years specializing in intimacy and 20 years training in the field of psychology and mental health. I love private coaching, but nothing beats the experience of group learning when adults gather together with the same intention and open their hearts and minds. So many “ahas” become possible!

My 2022 Intimacy Salons are a chance for people – perhaps like you – who might never try private intimacy coaching to still find connection, neutralize the shame, learn some skills and not take themselves too seriously in the process. I hope you will join us! Each event will be capped at 30 participants.

The salons will run throughout the year, grouped together by season and theme. The Winter into Spring theme is, “Asking for What You Want in Intimacy”. In each of the three sessions, I will break down a different aspect of the season’s theme (see below). You can sign up in advance and attend all three salons for the full, three-part experience, which I recommend! ~or~ you can drop in to any one event, as long as there is space.

Sign up here.


“Asking for What You Want in Intimacy”

Wednesday February 16th: “Asking for What You Want Part I: Why It’s So Hard”

Wednesday March 16th: “Asking for What You Want Part II: The Power of Desire”

Wednesday April 20th: “Asking for What You Want Part III: Flexing Your Desire Muscle”

Salons will take place on the third Wednesday of each month from 5:30-7pm PT/7:30-9pm CT/8:30-10pm ET.

Themes of future salons will include, “Learning How to Listen So That Your Partner Feels Heard”, “How to Make A Real Apology and Stop Repeating the Same Argument Over and Over” and “The Gift of Boundaries in Relationship + How to Maintain Yours”.

Note: Themes subject to modification according to participants’ requests and needs.

These salons are open to singles and couples, as well as polyamorous, queer and transgender humans.


There are three options for signing up. You can sign up for any of the individual, monthly salons only. You can register for any of the Seasonal Salon Packages and save 15%. Or you can commit to the full year of 12 salons and save over 30% on the regular registration price. Your choice!

Option #1: Sign up for any of the monthly salons as a drop-in only – $39 for the event.

Option #2: Sign up for any of the Seasonal Salon Packages and save 15% – $99 total for all three (that’s $33 an evening!)

 Option #3: Sign up for the full year of 12 salons (February 2022 through January 2023) and pay $324 total (that’s $27 for each event!)

Register here.

Unlike my previous groups which required a month to six week long commitment, the Intimacy Salons allow for a drop-in option yet still provide a feeling of personal connection, all for a fraction of the cost of one intimacy coaching session.

What previous participants + clients have said:


Jessica’s facilitation is flawless: genuine, sincere, warm, tender, openhearted, and phenomenally insightful. She brings focused loving intention to the table, which opens the doors for all participants to accept the invitation to step through to higher levels of self-awareness and conscious manifestation. I will be applying Jessica’s teachings to enhance my own”.

Heidi Connolly, Spiritual Practitioner, Medium, & Spirit-Guided Musician


Jessica, I’ve been working with psychologists for 45 years and you stand out in more ways than I can describe. Most notable are your facility and intuition in creating pathways to deeper experience and involving people in progressively more genuine sharing. Thank you so much for sharing your exquisite perception and skills.”

Mark Davis, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist


Through the course of our work together, Jessica honestly, gently and concisely assisted me in developing a healthy intimacy with myself. She taught me to honor my deepest self and to truly connect with my body. In a short period of time, I became more in possession of myself and rooted in peace. I am deeply grateful for her and her guidance”.

Maura Walsch, Recovery Coach

I hope you will consider “dipping a toe” into learning about intimacy with other adults who are also curious about getting healthier in love! Make sure to sign up in advance as each monthly event has a limit of 30 participants.
