Inspired by my personal journey. An epic odyssey. A journey into darkness and back into the light with courage and confidence. Empowering and supportive movement towards having the life, love and laughter I always wanted and get the vibrant healthy intimacy I desired. Your invited to scroll down to learn more about me.

As seen on…


P.I invite you to close your eyes and imagine what it’s like to be in a warm, playful loving, intimate relationship. Can you picture what it’s like to feel totally at ease with expressing your desires and needs. To feel supported and connected at the deepest levels?

Okay, now open your eyes. Is this your reality? If it is, I’m so happy for you. If it’s not, then I want you to know you’re not alone.

So many people feel awkward and uncomfortable in their intimate relationships with themselves, loved ones and day to day life. They don’t know how to ask for what they need and want without feeling a myriad of negative feelings like; fear, anger, sadness, guilt, and shame. They’re left feeling lonely and disconnected, robbing themselves of joyful intimacy.

Let’s take a closer look at the word “Intimacy” through my lens. To me the word intimacy means “into-me-see”. Its about connecting with yourself. Its about getting up close and personal with all aspects of you. Its about connecting with loved ones and life. Its about knowing, understanding and practicing.

My 5 Step Approach to Awesome Intimacy:

  1. Self-awareness of your “now” with accountability and no judgement/critic
  2. Confidently and authentically connect with self, loved ones and life.
  3. Release past hurts, tendencies, conditioning and limiting beliefs.
  4. Look at new possibilities of connection and growth with curiosity.
  5. Practice new possibilities and be in awareness of what is revealed for you.

When you do the above, you can live your life in authentic technicolour and surround sound — with passion and purpose and meaning and magic. You get to create a life of vibrant intimacy, personally, partnered, and for life.

My journey has elements of ugly to awesome. Growing up in a strict Greek orthodox family I was disciplined in the art of heightened awareness and self-sacrificing service.

As a result, I left myself on the back burner, putting others before me. I basically took on my mothers narrative of surviving in a loveless marriage. I was forced into an arranged marriage at the age of 18, and never really got to know who I was. At the same time, I experienced a variety of physical abusive and emotional traumas at the hands of close people and a variety of misguided partners. I felt incredibly alone and disconnected.


To survive, my coping mechanism led me to create a protective armour around my heart. And in an effort to feel safe, my warrior side emerged and I became more masculine. I went through life feeling numb and disconnected. Unable to feel myself, not knowing how to seek self-care and not allowing anyone into my heart left me feeling isolated.

Years passed, and I felt lost and tired of holding up my protective shield. My heart felt heavy and numb. My mind was angry and frustrated and struggling with the words; Why did this happen to me?

I felt the need to breathe deeply with a burning desire to live life fully and authentically. Pushing through the words of upset I decided to begin my empowering healing journey.

During my epic odyssey of personal healing, it hit me, like a brick to the head. I realized my body, heart and mind must heal as a holistic system. I learned how to feel connected and empowered with myself and my environment. I nourished and began to remember how to cultivate my authentic confidence. Bringing forward my passion, curiosity, creativity, love of life, joy of laughter and playful loving intimacy.
