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!

My Story

Helping women create turned-on lives

I was born and bred in Rhode Island. LIfe has taken me across the country to the Bay Area, California, and all the way to Argentina.

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.

As a life and executive coach, I help women explore their authentic selves and build fulfilling careers, relationships, and sexual lives.

There are a few different ways to work with me. You can always reach out to see if I have availability to coach you one-on-one.

In my small group yearlong coaching program, Turned-On Living, we build an intimate family of women supporting each other toward creating their own version of a “turned-on life.”

Whether we work together with individual or group support, I teach a philosophy of connection with your body and sensuality as a basis for self-empowerment.

I have spoken at many conferences and events, such as the Conference of World Affairs at UC-Boulder and the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco.

After nearly 20 years in the Bay Area, California, and six years in Buenos Aires, I’m back in little Rhody, working with local clients–and women (and a few self-aware men) from around the world. Life comes full circle!
