About Sasha

Life + Executive Coach, Author, Intimacy Guru 

I’m a coach and writer known for thought-provoking work on topics such as relationships, personal growth, and women’s empowerment. My writing feeds my coaching, and my coaching shapes my writing.

People know me best as the author of the book Quirkyalone: A Manifesto for Uncompromising Romantics (HarperOne), in which I coined the term “quirkyalone” to describe individuals who embrace self-love and their independence while remaining open to meaningful relationships. I also wrote To-Do List: From Buying Milk to Finding a Soul Mate, What Our Lists Reveal About Us (Simon & Schuster).  I am at work on a memoir called Wet.

My books and coaching approach have been featured in various media outlets such as CNN, NPR, Vogue, and the New York Times.

Since 2011, I’ve worked as a life and executive coach specializing in helping women 40+ create turned-on lives, careers, and businesses.

Being my client one-on-one or in a group is a unique experience. You might even learn to “pussywalk” with me! To get to know me further, you can read this “wild bio.”

My Story

Helping women create turned-on lives

My career has been a series of creative projects and businesses. If anything has been constant, it’s been change—and the willingness to tolerate the discomfort and fear of risk-taking and trying new things to feel alive. I’ve published two books with major New York publishers, started and sold a niche social network in Silicon Valley, and traveled South America on my own for a year–where I discovered tango, which has shaped my life going forward.

Since 2011, I have been working as a life and executive coach, helping clients with a focus on women 40+ gain clarity about what they really want in career/business, relationships, and in their relationships with themselves.

Through our work, you will take steps towards living a more adventurous and fulfilling life. Together, we will create a safe container in which you can take measurable actions and baby steps that add up to big changes over time.

I share with you a variety of cognitive and emotional tools, including how to access your body’s wisdom and sexuality as a source of strength and expression, empowering you to embrace your sensuality and harness it as a force. 

In coaching sessions, I create a space where deep connections and transformative conversations can unfold. Despite the seriousness of personal growth work, I like to infuse play and joy into our sessions, creating an atmosphere of laughter and lightness. Working with me is an adventure–we will have fun.
