Everyone wants intimate relationships with the people they love. Intimacy can look different in different people, and it is often cultivated through a network of emotional, mental, spiritual, physical, and sexual contact.

Intimacy has many definitions. Here’s a very simple one: a feeling of deep emotional connection. An intimate relationship gets at the heart of who we really are and what we really want, and because of that, it can be tricky to navigate at times.

When intimate relationships involve sex, as in the case of romantic partnerships, things can become even more sensitive and confusing to handle. But, when intimacy is attended to, and sexual relationships can enjoy the benefits of that intimacy, couples can discover deeply profound connective experiences.

Intimacy coaches help singles and couples discover new ways to deepen their emotional and sexual connections and experiences. They can help clients identify their blindspots and then attend to these troubled areas with compassion and a future-minded approach.

These New York City-based intimacy coaches have a range of experience levels and specializations working with clients with diverse sexual and gender identities and orientations. These coaches help clients strengthen their relationships with themselves and others by strengthening each respective part of the intimacy network.
