“Wow, you have given us a lot more tools and resources for us as a couple to experience greater intimacy and sexual/sensual pleasure and connectedness. My husband says that the session with you was not just informative but also stimulating and brought back sensual desire, in spite of erectile dysfunction due to prostate cancer surgery. We are looking foward to sharing more intimate time together and exploring various methods to enhance each other’s pleasure–bodily, emotionally, and spiritually.” Laura and Ron Weinberg, October 2013
“In my search for personal growth and awareness, I found that I wanted to live my life fully and that I was finally ready to make this happen. I absolutely wanted to be sexually active after 9 years of a complete absence of intimacy within a marriage full of rejection and emotional humiliation. I left my husband of 24 years and began my self discovery at 46 years of age, because somewhere deep inside, I never truly believed that I was unworthy of a good man. On the contrary, I felt it was about time for me to experience some sort of peace, love and happiness. Needless to say, I didn’t know exactly where to begin, but begin I did.
My quest toward self realization was rewarding since I was learning a lot about myself but at some point, I felt that I needed help. I was just not attracting the quality of man that I felt I deserved. This is when I found TinaMarie and decided to call her.
I called TinaMarie for some information on her services. She was so positive, confident and assertive that I felt I wanted what she had to offer. So glad I made the right decision and hired her. My goal was to attract an elevated quality of man. No more settling. At this stage in my life, I felt that I deserved everything but I didn’t know how to reach this goal.
TinaMarie showed me the way. Her guidance helped me screen out the duds and eventually make room for a wonderful companion. I am grateful to TinaMarie for the faith she has in herself and the power that all women share. We can do this! We deserve it! TinaMarie will not only create the path but she will walk it with you. There are good men out there. She has one and now, so do I. With sincere gratitude for your brilliant work,” Marcia Alvarez, Business Owner, October 2013
“My doctor told me I needed a hysterectomy and I was terrified. Every woman in my family has had this surgery and I had always sworn I never would, but I was in pretty much constant pain and was really considering the surgery.
One of the potential (and little discussed) side effects of hysterectomy is loss of sexual sensation and pleasure. I reached out to Tinamarie for advice on this, and had a full-day session with her.We went deep into both my family and personal history and healed some profound traumas I had experienced as a young woman.
I left feeling ten years younger, and I am so happy to share that as a result of the work I did with Tinamarie– as well as some alternative medicine and diet changes, I am pain free no longer need to have the surgery! But maybe even more profoundly, I shifted my relationship with my body from one of resistance, to one of delight. Thank you Tinamarie!” Robbie R., Artist and author, Summer 2013
“My wife and I have a healthy relationship both in the bedroom and out of the bedroom. We wanted to enhance our communication in intimate settings. Tinamarie assured us we weren’t alone and coached us with some simple solutions. Immediately, we felt as if there was a weight lifted off our shoulders. The pressures were relieved and we’ve been able to add a new dynamic to our relationship. Things are definitely more spicy now and we are enjoying the more risque-ness of our intimacy. Tinamarie was not judgmental. She was easy to speak with and was full of useful resources. My wife and I were both comfortable speaking with her within the first minute. Her coaching is a gift to relationships!” Mark, private client
“When I came to Tinamarie, I had no income coming in and I’d been in major stuck mode for over a year and one half…nothing seemed to work to get me unstuck. Then I read her work and I loved how courageous she was to share something so deeply personal.
I shared with her my admiration and we connected and agreed to a session with her to help me get to open to more abundance. Before I even talked to her she gave me an affirmation that I used until the time of the session. The session was not what I expected. Tinamarie used her spot on intuition to guide her as to what I needed from the session. She told me what her guidance told her I needed to do. My dad even came through!
She gave me a much different perspective of myself than I’d had until then and her warmth and support of my success was deeply moving. I felt heard, respected, supported and loved. Her generosity and authenticity was apparent and I trusted her immediately. I did what she said to do and less than a day later my whole world turned around for the better and I am now unstuck and in a place of bliss and joy because I can at last express what had been dammed up inside me for so long.
I am finally seeing the light at the end of a very long dark tunnel. I know this is just the beginning and I’m excited to see what else the Universe has in store for me!” Angelique Love Singer
“Tinamarie is a brave, compassionate writer who is willing to go to places others daren’t explore. Her writing on sex and relationships illuminates, titillates and always provokes thought.

“Tinamarie’s got her lips on the pulse of modern sexuality… from a number of interesting camera angles. She does her research, from science journals and sacred texts to girlfriend gossip and what sounds suspiciously like her own personal diaries, and pulls it all together in that grab-bag way I’ve come to recognize as the uncensored feminine mind: wide-ranging, all-inclusive, endlessly curious and sealed with a wink. If you want to know how women are thinking about sex, she’s got the goods.” David Cates, Founder DeepMasculine.com

Thank you again for who you are and what you stand for. All the power to you and to all of us who honour ourselves, with all our frailties as human Beings.” Kelley S.

You can feel her words are filled with a passion that is of today, for today. She is modern. She is loving. She is definitely a muse. I, for one, cherish her for that and for who she is as revealed to her readers. Mark L.
