Intimacy and Energy Coach

Surrogate Partner

Reiki and Tantra Practitioner

Joy's path for self-discovery and thirst to 'know more' was sparked at the age of 13 when her aunt and uncle gave her the book, The Miracle of Mindfulness, by Thich Naht Hahn.  Yoga and meditation enhanced this understanding but eventually the realization dawned on her that the majority of spiritual practices in our culture work from a masculine set of awarenesses, and often lacked a feminine understanding. During her stays in India and Thailand a feminine framework of understanding in relation to spirituality and connection was revealed. This now facilitates her ability to open to and guide her clients into states of 'oneness' and connection to the mystical realms of experience.


Joy’s exploration of intimacy and spirituality led her to the personal revelation that sexuality is the seed and seat of our soul, and the root of our being.  Joy believes that intimacy

[deep connection] creates a container in which healing, growth and self-realization can take place. It is Joy's passion and dedication to nurture and grow states of being that cultivate
pleasure, comfort and a feeling of 'home' in the body, mind and world.

Surrogate Partner Therapy, Tantra, Reiki, Sensual Mindfulness, guided meditations and intentional bodywork are some of the practices Joy uses to help men, women and couples cultivate embodied presence, pleasure, passion and wholeness. These wisdoms offer foundational support in all the aspects of one's life, living, relationships and wellbeing.
