About Us

Amy Baker

Experience You Can Count On

I work in the realm of relationships: sex, conflict, and developing or deepening intimacy.
My service includes a comprehensive consultation to help identify gaps and opportunities in all spheres of your life. You can be single or partnered, sexually active or not. The whole of our work together will leave you feeling more in alignment in Mind, Body, and Spirit. Yes, there is a spiritual component to our work because Spirit is one of our forgotten energy bodies.


Love, Sex, & Conflict

Whether you came here for problems with love or sexuality, both are going to include the entire spectrum of emotions, especially in intimate and/or sexual partnerships. Frolic can turn into fighting once the oxytocin wears off, and there is where intimacy is or is not built. Ideally, it was built beforehand, but, alas, it frequently is not.

I believe in the Sacred and the Divine when it comes to sex. Is it this way for every body, and does every body want to relate to the Divine? It can be, and no. In my practice, I will get a sense of what you want to work on and then we will work hands-on through experiential somatic play and exercises. This can be done individually, or as a couple. The goal is frequently about becoming more embodied and in balance within each individual, and not the image of what the individual should be.

My modalities are therapeutic dialogue, pranayama, yoga, and CBT, as well as Reiki and other energy work modalities.

Why did the principal of a small school switch fields into somatic therapy?
We’ve lost too many boys. My education and experience was always linked to developmental psychology and family systems, Now I am focused on building better relationships through men’s health and relationship counselling.
