Coaching Testimonials

Working with Sasha as a coach has been really important and transformative for me, and I have worked with other coaches before. Something about Sasha’s style and experience as a tango dancer, as someone who wants women to be empowered, happy and comfortable with who they are is really unique and important. I can’t imagine not having worked with her and having the experience I had in tango and back at home. You will learn things about yourself and feel glad you did it. I would encourage anyone who is thinking about working with Sasha to give it a try, you will learn all kinds of things about yourself that will change your world.”–Kelly Macias, writer and diversity/inclusion consultant, Washington, DC (the beautiful photo comes from Kelly’s Tango Goddess Photo Shoot in Buenos Aires)

“I realized I had a lot of internalized shame. Once Sasha helped me realize that shame wasn’t doing anything productive for me (and wasn’t even true!), a lot changed really quickly! 

Now, I’m actually dating, which is completely new for me.  I cannot emphasize enough how that would never have happened for me before working with Sasha.

It’s a strange sensation to describe, but through our work together, I feel more solid and present in the world—instead of feeling like a passive or invisible observer, I feel I’m in charge.”–Lauren Pollini, San Francisco

“I first contacted Sasha because I was trying to get over a broken heart… but that was just the tip of the iceberg. I was struggling with work and dating, amongst other things. Sasha helped me put everything in perspective. I was really impressed with how Sasha made me think about my life goals. I was amazed to see how important it is to simply articulate a goal and think about the steps that I need to take to achieve that goal. I committed to actually following through. Sasha is really fantastic, I can’t recommend her enough!”–Michelle Braiden, Montreal, Canada

“The journey of coaching with Sasha has been amazing. I can’t thank you enough for expanding my understanding of sex, sexuality, sensuality and feeling turned on as we have worked to overcome my vaginismus.–Laura, Canada

“I decided to work with Sasha when I ended my last relationship, and was trying to find a better way to be alone again free of codependency. I have worked with a number of coaches, but Sasha is at the top my list. I love Sasha’s “Quirkyalone” and “Wet” constructs. Her approach is distinctive, modern, passionate. She is intuitive, funny, and wise beyond her years. she assigns just the right amount of “playwork” to keep you processing and exploring between sessions. Sasha cares about her clients deeply. She is responsive, and best of all, the objectives you choose to achieve are met—and in my case—exceeded.”–Carrie Branovan, Brand Director, Wisconsin

I invite coaching clients to come to Buenos Aires to learn what tango has to teach them.

Here Kerry Lander from Melbourne, Australia talks with me about what she got out of coaching with me and the Tango Adventure:

“The confidence to do things like come dancing tango in Buenos Aires as a beginner…if I can have the confidence to do that I can have the confidence to put my creative work out in the world. That’s what your coaching has helped me to find. It’s tough on your own sometimes–you can get into negative self-talk patterns. That’s where your coaching has helped to cut through.”

“If you are considering working with Sasha, DO IT (all capital letters and tons of emphasis)! You will see so much change in even a short amount of time.  Sasha has a gift for helping people quickly realize what they want and why they’re holding themselves back from getting it.”–Lauren Pollini, San Francisco

“Sasha, You’ve been on my mind so much in the last two weeks. On February 4th, I got married. To the man I met right at the end of our Quirkytogether course. We are maintaining our own homes and lives AND we are married. I’m getting everything I ever wanted!! Love!”–Barbara Berry, Florida

Working with Sasha has been instrumental in huge changes in my life. It helped me leave a job and find a new one, it helped me have a wonderful long-distance relationship and feel resilient when that relationship ended. I am so grateful for the freedom and confidence working with Sasha has given me over the past year.”–Megan Cramer, Atlanta Georgia

I’d done therapy in the past, but this felt more actionable and relatable. The biggest change is I’ve definitely become bolder.”–Jennifer, Chicago

As a quirkyalone and someone in need of a little life coaching, I figured Sasha might be the perfect life coach, and she was!  She “got” me from the start and as our time went on I was impressed with how well she knew me.”–Matt, Retired Orchestra Director

“I struggle with social anxiety, and I had gotten to the point where I had some serious doubts about being the least bit successful.  Sasha was incredibly helpful in figuring things out and helping me to be persistent and accountable, without being forceful or pushy. Her style, it seems, is to figure out the style that works for her clients, which is very effective.”–Keith, Boston, MA

“I was lucky enough to meet up with Sasha and group at the first Argentina Tango Adventure. Sasha created this amazing experience to try out so many things in one week–it’s truly changed my life! 

Returning home, my confidence in myself was sky-high: I changed careers, restarted dating in an open/honest way and I joined a local tango community. I owe much of my new outlook on life and ways of interacting to Sasha. I have peace, satisfaction and a true view of my worth.” Carissa Giblin, Tampa, FL

“When you’re in any major life transition, Sasha can help. Sasha has many clever, practical solutions to get you through transitions– most of all–she cares. And she has a gift for finding all the blind spots. Sasha read me like a friend who’s known me for years. After working with her for just a few months I’ve gone from feeling lost and overwhelmed with my job search, to finding a whole new direction for my path.“–Petra Hanson, San Francisco, CA

Sasha is adventurous, wise, and willing to be vulnerable in her work and practice which for me, is HUGE for anyone doing this kind of work. I don’t really trust people with my personal life information that aren’t vulnerable themselves. Her sense of humor and playfulness compliments her depth beautifully. She asks the important questions and actually cares about the answers. Sasha is someone you want in your life. I highly recommend you contact her if you’re looking for an amazing life coach!”–Lindsay Chrisler, Denver, CO
