About Me

Embodiment Coach, Sacred Intimate, Educator, Researcher, and Pleasure Activist

Who I Am

I consider myself a guide to peaceful living and a teacher of following a soulful path for living in joy in the present moment.

I identify as an ecstatic embodiment coach, a Tantrika, and a sacred intimate. My goal is to to help you disengage from your mind and to help you learn more about the incredible power of healing that exists in your body.

My focus is working with energetic beings of all persuasions and manifestations, straight, bisexual, gay, trans, or questioning. I believe we are all experiencing the human condition in the same physical embodiment, and thus we can all learn from each other.

What I Believe

I believe that there is considerable wisdom in the body. Unfortunately our upbringing, cultural constructs, and societal expectations discourage us from listening to our bodies and convince us to remain prisoners to our minds.

To live a more healthy life, one free of stress, tension, and frustration, we must work each moment to stay connected to our physical selves, to stay attuned to our energies as well as those around us, to honor what is natural and of this earth, and to focus on the present moment, as it is the only thing that truly exists.

My spiritual path is a unique blend of Buddhism, Tantric philosophy, and Zen perspectives, grounded in a Christian tradition.  I recognize and celebrate the gifts bestowed in us of pleasure, presence, and physical sensation, and I invite all expressions of humanity, as we are all reflections of our Creator, of our one true Source.

My Training and Experience

I have considerable training and experience in the areas of Tantra, massage, erotic connection, BDSM, sacred sexuality, spirituality, energy healing, and life coaching.

I hold both a bachelors and masters degree, and I am pursuing my PhD in Human Sexuality from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. I was trained in sacred intimacy by the Body Electric School, where I also served as a coordinator for programs in Central Texas for almost 10 years.  I have received training in surrogate partner therapy through the Institute for Mind Body Therapy.  I am a graduate of Barbara Carrella’s Urban Tantra® Professional Certification Training Program. I am also a certified trainer in Points of You, a visual-based coaching and training method and series of tools that help you to learn more about yourself in new and unexpected ways.

Most recently, I achieved the credentials for accreditation as a certified Sexologist from the American College of Sexologists.

Training and Certifications

"Andrés took the time in our consultation to fully understand my experiences, and struggles, my likes, and dislikes, in order help me, moving forward. I am a health care professional, and I feel he asked all of the necessary questions one might need in order to provide recommendations of services so that healing will take place. Thank you!"

"You definitely provide me with what I need! You are amazingly intuitive in providing a self-awareness never before so focused. I only regret I am not speaking with you on a daily basis! "

"Andrés is very thoughtful and he goes above and beyond to make his clients feel comfortable and honor their intentions. I highly recommend him for those that are new to these explorations as he will provide an environment where you will feel safe to explore. "

K.A.L., September 2016

"I think what you’re doing is very important. I’m becoming a mental health educator. I teach lots of powerful skills but I think perhaps the most important one may be to love ourselves. What you are teaching fits very nicely with that; at least it certainly does in my own experience. "

Webinar Participant, Anonymous, September 2016

"This webinar was absolutely lovely. Andrés' voice is so beautiful! He is also a remarkable presenter - his personal sharing about his eros definition and the images were particularly striking. It went deep for me, I loved it. My thought at the time was what a wonderful 'fit' it is that Andrés is working in the field he is. My message to him is: "How I experienced you - i.e. being yourself - was a sensual and delicious touch of eros. Thank you!" "

"It takes a lot to impress me, and I was SO impressed with your artful, serene, and very effective manner of presentation and teaching! I don’t think that there was even one person in the group who did not benefit from it! The poems were well chosen. I am grateful to have been a participant!"

K.B., Webinar Participant, September 2016

"It was scary to confront some of my fears and wants. Andrés made me feel so safe! I could never do it otherwise! "

D.Q., September 2016

"I had a very good experience with Andrés, and I felt very relaxed in his care. I enjoyed the time, and I would recommend others to see him."

B.H., August 2016

"This was a most rewarding experience and one that I did not expect."

E.T., July 2016

My experience with Andrés was powerful and unique. He is skilled, friendly, and knowledgeable in his practice. I felt like he put everything he had into our session and was completely present throughout the 90 minutes. I left satisfied and peaceful. I will schedule another appointment when I am back in town.

D.M., May 2016

"I enjoyed the session very much. I always feel very relaxed afterward. It is a very safe environment where you can try new things."

F.C., April 2016

"AWESOME! Do not even begin to describe how I felt after the session. Highly recommended. :

J.M., January 2017

"My experience with Andrés was awesome! I entered with a quest for knowledge to enhance my intimate relationship with myself and my partner. Not only did Andrés have what I was looking for (including tools for me to explore on my own), his unique, personal insight was just what I needed. "

S.S., September 2017

"I’ve been thinking so much about the wonderful webinar you did. It was very useful to me…You have helped bring my practice to a new level, and you’ve brought new joy and enthusiasm into my life. Thank you very much for your inspiration and encouragement!"
