Finn Deerhart Relationship & Sex Coach
Transformation requires patience, practice & a holistic understanding
When it comes to relationships, I believe that many of us are working against a monolithic set of conditions with faulty templates.
It can seep into every level of our beings--the challenges that we face and how we go about trying to make it all ok. As we release blame and get really honest with ourselves, healing can occur. Having help in this process of shedding the old and bringing in the new can be tremendous.
Transformation requires patience, practice, and a holistic understanding of the individual and relational challenges that you may be facing. Together, we discover your own clarity. We will acquire resources and strategies that you need in order to create the life and relationships that best support you.
As we uncover your personal truths, we also contribute to the collective healing for us all. I bring 14 years combined experience in social anthropology, wellness coaching, spiritual counseling, sex & intimacy coaching, and personal development.
I was born into a strict, Southern, religious home as a minister's son. I also became a minister when I was 19 years old. I had a mission, but a message that was not my own. It took me so many years to come out of the closet as a gay man, and even more years after that to begin the process of unraveling my core identity in order to rebuild myself authentically. I have struggled and triumphed in many ways because of significant guides and teachers I have encountered along my journey.
Now, sex and relationships are the lenses through which I am examining my own life, how I interact with my own deepest wounds, and how my personal vulnerabilities relate to my culture as a whole. I have been letting go of what I am not in order to find what I am. Deeper intimacy with myself is guiding me into healthy relationships and exciting sex that reflects my personal quest for wholeness. Though I am no longer a formal minister, I care very deeply about how we hold space for healing within ourselves and for others who need connection.
