Jacqueline’s core belief is that everything that arrives in life – all of it – good and bad, delicious, and stinky, is in service to our growth. The other belief is that everyone is born with the God-given right to experience pleasure and to feel good in one’s own skin.
Everything that happens to you is in service to you remembering and embodying your beautifully divine and loving nature.
Sensuality and Sexuality
The practice that engages and helps us embody our innately sensual body is sensuality. Sensuality helps us align and integrate the body, heart, mind, and spirit which creates connection to the Divine within.
Sexuality then is the the expression of this alignment. Sexuality is the expression that supports us in desiring intimate connection with others.

The sweet spot
Her sweet spot is the intersection of how sex embodies and integrates the physical, emotional, mental, and the spiritual aspects.
By pulling from her enjoyment of belly dancing, feminine movement, and Latin dancing, she enriches her work with clients and provides a unique experience. Her private practice is multi-ethnic and multi-religious.
Her focus is inspiring others to create extraordinary lives, deeper intimacy, and experience greater sexual freedom and expression.
Why include the body?
Breathe! Everything begins with the breath.
Connecting with the breath allows for greater sense of relaxation. Breath can also create greater connection and alignment as habitual tension is released allowing for easier integration of body, heart, mind, and spirit.
Different breathing techniques, connecting the inhale and exhale, are used to assist clients in relaxing the body. As a result, clients better understand and release habitual patterns.
Breath also helps a client connect more deeply to her/his body which in turn allows a space where thoughts, memories, feelings, or blocks that have been held down are able to surface and be released.
Our physical bodies are channels for our own innate wisdom.
The body speaks through tension, aches, relaxation, and pleasure. As a result, when movement and physical awareness practices are integrated into sessions, a more holistic manner of healing occurs. A more meaningful exploration of the nuances of the body happens in the present moment, and a deeper understanding of healing occurs.
This leads us to transform and liberate ourselves from the retelling of old stories that no longer serve us — those stories that keep us stuck in negative behavioral and relationship patterns.
Clients learn to tune in to the body’s cues as a response to their emotional, mental, and behavioral states. Tics, aches, sensation, and pings, along with specific movement, allows the client to develop a keener sense of self awareness and observation.
This assists clients in replacing unwanted and unproductive emotional, mental, and behavioral patterns. Ultimately healing the whole of the person.
“The root of all health is in the brain.
The trunk of it is in the emotion.
The branches and all leaves are the body.
The flower of health blooms when all parts work together.”
