I have worked with coaching clients from around the world since 2013. Here some share their stories of working with me. What they got out of it, and what it was like.
“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. Best of all, the objectives you choose to achieve are met—and in my case—exceeded.”

“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 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.”

“If you are considering working with Sasha, DO IT (all capital letters and tons of emphasis)! You will see so much change in 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.”

“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. I didn’t feel like just another client. Sasha is a great listener and gives down-to-earth, applicable, and insightful feedback. She guides each session naturally and has great instincts in how she reacts and poses follow-up questions. Our sessions were relaxed and fun too. We made significant progress on my upfront goals and I now have a new set of thought patterns and approaches to move forward and make continued positive changes in my life. I highly recommend her!”

“Being coached by Sasha was a revelation. Having never had life coaching before, Sasha would be a hard act to follow! I was given ‘playwork’, not homework, which was very ‘me’. Her sessions were fun and much looked-forward-to, giving me the structure I needed, with learnings and re-cap notes that I continue to re-read today. Sasha’s outlook helped me to recognise and dispel conditioning I’ve received as a female professional creative and a single woman, and to embrace my unique journey. Especially as a ‘quirkyaloner’ – I felt understood in a way that I seldom have before, and that is huge.
I also took part in Sasha’s Tango Adventure in Buenos Aires, which left an indelible impression on my life. Awakening a love of tango has caused a great leap in my pursuit of confidence, and has been an exciting and stimulating challenge that continues today.”

“Working with Sasha has been profoundly positive for me in so many areas of my life, in unexpected ways. Initially I found Sasha online for help with a traumatic breakup. In her kind, clear and gently persistent way, she has guided me through the depths of grief and loss back to…me, the one I lost toward the end of that relationship, and to the one who is willing and strong enough to risk an open heart.
What shocked me most in the process was not only how one emotional loss can resurrect (and heal) past losses, but also the connection of that to the physical realm: my body, breath, posture, balance, and the releasing of tension and pain. At the time I started with Sasha, I had taken a few Argentinean Tango lessons (on a lark, mostly) and had coincidentally started Latin dance lessons as a fun “hobby” to meet people after a move to the NYC area. I had no idea how the coaching and dancing would intersect, connect, support and amplify each other, support me and help me tap an erotic dimension of well-being and creativity that has dramatically sparked my personal life as well as my work.
Coaching and dancing with Sasha’s influence and the support of my dance teacher are both amazing journeys. Neither are easy, because I am consistently forced to confront myself, especially those habits of mind and body that don’t serve me. Anchoring the lessons of coaching in my body has been incredibly important and powerful for me. It’s essentially building muscle memory for healthy alignment, ease, flexibility, creativity, openness and connection. The beauty of “lead and follow”; practice letting go of my thoughts, fears, and stresses to fully inhabit my body; being truly present, attentive and alive to my partner – it has all led to deeper connections, partnerships, and collaborations.”

“I had read Sasha’s book, Quirkyalone, and watched some of her videos on pussywalking. She struck me as a playful, soulful, creative woman who genuinely loved empowering other women.
So I felt confident that she had enough experience walking her own unique path to be a good person to help me sort through some of my own creative and relational questions.
Our sessions were very helpful to me as she was a great listener, very present and grounded. She stopped me from going down habitual rabbit holes with her excellent, thoughtful questions.
I would recommend her to anyone who wants to get more clarity in their lives about what they are doing.”

“I read Sasha’s book Quirkyalone then participated in her online class when I realized I wasn’t living my full life (yes, a cliche; but definitely how I felt!). With Sasha’s easy-going, enthusiastic and supportive nature, I gained so much awareness of myself. That’s when I started questioning my current career and dating habits. I took a personal leave to travel for months. 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! She guided us through deeply emotional discussions and provided such beautiful insights when she saw me struggling during the new events. 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 with others to Sasha. I have a true view of my worth.”

“Working with Sasha and Wanda in tango life coaching has been an amazing and life-changing experience!! Both of them are very genuine, and caring people and great at what they do. Learning tango was not in my comfort zone at first, but Wanda made me feel very comfortable and made it easy. Doing coaching with Sasha helped me understand and solidify the lessons from tango and I always love how present she is with me. The combination of coaching and tango has opened me up to a whole new way of being–one where I feel a sense of creativity, exploration, and curiosity. Instead of resisting and working against myself and my body (like I have done for many years because of childhood trauma), I am learning to enjoy and work with my body to find more healing. This work (which has felt like play) has helped me feel more connection and pleasure. I have so many tools to keep improving all of my relationships and I am so grateful!”

“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, dating, amongst other things. Sasha really helped me put everything in perspective. I was really impressed with how Sasha made me think about my life goals. Normally I have a fuzzy feeling and jumble of ideas/emotions that tell me that X maybe, kind of, sort of is possible. By articulating the goal and discussing steps, I have committed myself to following through.Sasha is really fantastic! I can’t recommend her enough!”

“When you’re in any major life transition, Sasha can help. She has many clever, practical solutions to get you through it — most of all — she cares. And she has a gift for finding all the blind-spots. No person can see their own; it takes an experienced, intuitive to shed light on old habits that get in the way. 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 very lost and overwhelmed with my job search, to finding a whole new approach, and a new direction for my path.”

“Sasha supported me with coaching sessions while I was transitioning to a new life in Buenos Aires. I happened to see some of her work on FB, and her link with tango, which I adore, and her having moved herself from the US to Argentina made her my perfect match for a coach. She’s empathetic, asks the right questions, and showed me the other side of my own thinking, into a more supportive and self-compassionate direction. We would talk over the phone, so when I or she was traveling, we could still easily have a session, no fuss. She has really been my rock, a very important person while trying to figure out my new and (sometimes) overwhelming life. Thanks to her coaching, I am now in a way better place!”

“Sasha is highly intuitive, articulate and wise. She listens to what you want at a deep level and has a great way of nudging you along, out of your comfort zone, toward getting what you want in your life. For those of you on the fence about working with Sasha, take this risk.”

“I was very skeptical about using a life coach. One of the biggest issues I struggle with is social anxiety, and I had gotten to the point where I had some serious doubts about being the least bit successful. I always envisioned a life coach as being someone who would be a little too overwhelming or pushy for me. Sasha definitely was none of those things. She was very understanding, and helped me find my own path forward, which I imagine is different for every person. 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. While I still have things I’m working on, I’m very grateful to Sasha for not only helping me achieve some of my goals, but actually instilling a positive and hopeful attitude that makes me feel confident that I can continue and achieve even more positive results.”

“I did a one-on-one coaching program with Sasha and walked away with the goals and intentions I set at the beginning of the program achieved. Sasha’s approach is practical, empathetic and pushes you to not only realize what you want but also opens your mind to new concepts and paths. The program is well organized with structured Skype calls, emails and elements customized for my specific goals. I found that the coaching positively impacted all areas of my life – relationships, professional and with myself. Overall my experience with Sasha was extremely rewarding and I would recommend her coaching programs to anyone who is considering.”

“I came to Buenos Aires about 4 years ago at Easter. I was recovering from my marriage break-up–turns out he was gay and all those red flags I ignored where right! My mum was dying so I needed the solitude, and the space to figure out who I was. I loved my trip so much, and I laugh still at how frustrated the PsicoTango guy was with me. I was so closed off. But your trip was the beginning of connecting to myself and I will always be grateful.
Eating alone in a foreign city reminded me how much I had lost. I had travelled the world (twice) before I got married, but his gaslighting had destroyed my self-confidence so much I remember sitting in a cafe and instead of feeling bold and adventurous, I felt small and scared. But that trip was the turning point for me. It changed me, and I’ll always be grateful to you and the dance. It started me back on the journey to me.
I’ve just finished my second book, The MidLife Manual. I write about my trip in the book, and how tango helped me re-establish contact with my body. I’ve written about the pussywalk…something I still practise! My next book is going to be about sex and sensuality in midlife, so I’ll be coming back to you to interview you if that suits.
Thank you so much for being part of my recovery and helping me realise that being alone is a gift.”
