Transformational Sexuality Sessions
discover your bliss
"Desire motivates us, but when it is unconscious it becomes a tyranny." -Thanissara
My Approach and Influences
My Transformational Sexuality sessions for individuals and couples draw from yoga, dance, meditation, energy work, conscious kink, and Bondassage and Elysium, in which I am certified. I am also influenced by the Internal Family System, a non-pathologizing approach to healing. Through IFS, movement/performance work, and meditation, I have come to understand that each of us is comprised of many parts, or sub-personalities. As such, my sessions make space for the whole person, and create a fun, sensual, and safe container in which desires and feelings that have been pushed aside, for one reason or another, can be explored.
I believe movement, breath, and awareness of the body and mind are the most powerful tools towards a more satisfying sexuality, so all of my sessions are grounded here. While I am not a pro domme, I love the elements of BDSM/conscious kink that facilitate letting go, listening, trust, humility, gender questioning, and deep self-awareness, so this is an area that can be explored. If the mention of BDSM/kink makes you nervous, fear not! I'm not talking about abuse or pain here, but rather about surrendering to your own deeper self and to the vulnerable, unknown, and profoundly healing aspects that lie there.
Why I do this work
I engage in sexuality coaching/education work because I want to facilitate wisdom, joy, and de-shaming around sexuality for any and all genders and sexual orientations. I believe slowing down and seeing our habits and blind spots. Healing our sexual shame, numbness, and confusion is essential on the journey towards ending misogyny, the delusion of the gender binary, and disempowering and disconnected (not to mention boring!) sexual dynamics, inviting us into a more playful, powerful, transformative sexuality and life. As Audre Lorde says, "The erotic is a measure between the beginnings of our sense of self and the chaos of our strongest feelings. It is an internal sense of satisfaction to which, once we have experienced it, we know we can aspire.”
Here's a wonderful little article by adrienne maree brown that touches closely on my approach to transformational sexuality work: https://www.bitchmedia.org/article/liberating-desire/its-time-shift-your-fantasies
And here is Audre Lorde’s Uses of the Erotic https://www.cds.hawaii.edu/sites/default/files/downloads/resources/diversity/SisterOutside.pdf, deeply influential to my transformational sexuality work and life in general.
Ongoing Work and One-Time Sessions
I love working with people on an ongoing basis, collaborating to develop your confidence, curiosity, and presence in your sensual life over time, but also enjoy offering one-time sessions, which can provide you with an immense opportunity to deeply relax and discover an entirely new relationship to your sexuality. I design and facilitate my hands-on sessions based on our intake process (please see intake questions below), and depending on your history and interests will tailor our work towards your needs using the skills I have available to me.
Whether you're looking to reignite your sexual dynamic or heal difficulty in the dynamic with a long term partner, want to enter a new partnership with more awareness and playfulness, or are curious about venturing into some more conscious and or kinky play with your partner but aren't sure where to start, my sessions could be just what you're looking for. My couples work focuses on one individual at a time and foregrounds trust-building, greater body awareness, and spontaneous play. Please be in touch for more information.
I work out of a private space in downtown Troy, NY in the Albany area/Capital Region. It is in a safe, private, and comfortable location with ample street parking. My facilities are clean, cozy, professional.
I expect you to be courteous, respectful, and communicative. My high standards for protocol, and an expectation of respect for my boundaries before, during, and after a session make me better able to show up for you and offer you a deep and transformative experience. Please make bookings at least 24 hours in advance when possible, and communicate via text if you need to cancel or will be late. Cancellations with less than 24 hours notice will be subject to a 50% charge, with less than 12 hours notice you will be responsible for the cost of the session.
My sessions are 90 minutes/400, 2 hours/500, 3 hours/650
A non-refundable deposit of 200 is required 24 hours in advance of the session. Cancellations with less than 6 hours notice require full payment for the session (serious emergencies not withstanding).
I welcome established clients to commit to the practice we have begun. A series of 3, 5, or 10 sessions is a profound way to deepen your experience and is highly encouraged. Please inquire about discounts for package rates.
I require an intake phone call of at least 10 minutes before we set up a session. Please carve out a focused time for our intake call, and be in a quiet, private location with good phone reception.

I have had some amazing sessions with Hana. She is patient, honest and provides a unique experience tailored to my needs, while pushing the boundaries of what is possible and what new areas she can explore with me. She is professional and passionate. I trust her completely, I know I'm in good hands. My life is stressful and complex and when I'm in her presence all that melts away and I am in the moment. Truly letting go is not something that comes easy, but Hana is patient, never rushed and we talk both before and after about what expectations are and then what works and what else we might want to explore. Hana is a true professional who provides a unique experience that I am very thankful for.
When I made an appointment with Hana I was nervous and excited all at once. I did not know what to expect or even what I was really looking for, but I knew I needed to explore. After talking with Hana for a few minutes I became vastly curious about what was possible. Once we began our session I was immediately soothed by her inviting and calming presence. We discussed my goals for our time, which to be honest I was not sure of. Hana did not project her ideas on me but let the shape of the session evolve to fit my background and hopes. I went through such a range of emotions and sensations during our time I cannot fully describe them all, but eventually my stress left me through the end of my fingers. I was amazed when our time came to a close at how relaxed and rejuvenated I felt. I spent a long time processing our time together and how it has changed my view on my pleasures and passions. Thank You Hana for continuing to help my journey and passions.
I've been doing regular sessions with Hana for almost one year and have nothing but high praise for her. I visited her website and filled out her questionnaire. I was soon greeted with a response email which contained a few more questions. I realized I had to share about myself and my hopes for the session and that helped ease my mind because it showed me she was not opening her door to just anyone. My greatest fear was that Hana was not what she was claiming to be, and I have since been relieved (and delighted) to learn she is genuine, sincere and fully committed to offering something transformational built upon a strong foundation that involves trust, communication and honesty. If you are looking for an experience that can grow and evolve in a very customized fashion, then you found the right place and won't regret crossing this exciting line into a warm and wonderful journey.
