What can you expect from working with a sex and intimacy coach?
"During our work with Zhanna we went from almost no touch in our relationship to being able to exchange loving touch and cuddle in a very relaxed and comfortable way.
This is a real progress and a relief for both of us! Mutual touch feels natural and calming now. It also feels essential for me!
The sessions, and the home assignments increased our joy, strengthened our connection, and brought new hope to our 30-year long marriage! We can exchange touch without feeling too self-conscious or awkward now, and we are both looking forward to progressing to connecting sexually.”
"Zhanna brings an insight on intimacy not easily found elsewhere!
Across a series of bi-monthly meetings, she led me to understand my style of intimacy and that of others - not just philosophical information but that which I could apply to my daily life. Seeing things from both a male and female perspective, gaining consent to build trust, the benefits of both giving and taking in a relationship, how males and females see intimacy differently, and the way each gender expresses energy.
Her background is both introspective and international, with a special bonus of allowing me to see how, as an American, some of the norms I follow are influenced by my country of origin and not necessarily how I was wired at birth.
I found the information she provides very valuable, and the tools to be both life-changing and practical on a daily basis.
Zhanna's style is caring, kind, respectful, discrete and individualized. She is an adroit coach with whom you’ll be lucky to work."
I wish we had a video of how my husband and I walked into Zhanna’s office for the first time - angry, tearful, pulling away from each other, withdrawn, and full of doubt. You should have seen us walking into our last session… Sam’s arm is around my shoulder, looking at each other, laughing about a joke. We looked like one of those happy couple TV commercials! Night and day, really! We signed up for an intimacy coaching program as an act of desperation after breaking trust. We had no idea that it was possible to create an emotional, physical, and spiritual connection that stems from full consent and authenticity! After 12 years together, we thought we knew each other inside and out, but we both learned so much about one another! Zhanna has been warm, welcoming, and not awkward at all in guiding us through this journey of discovery and understanding. I think every couple should have the tools and knowledge Zhanna shares! It is truly life-changing!
"I feel much more relaxed about sharing touch and engaging in sexual activities now. I initiate more, which hasn't happen for a long time. I would love to continue us going this way! I think we need to make some life style changes, and have a scheduled Connection Time more often.
My biggest take away is - I've realized that having boundaries and saying No is actually not a bad thing! Its something that makes me feel safer, freer, and more playful!"
"I feel hopeful and excited.
We definitely sharing more touch and intimate moments now! And she is so much more playful! The biggest take away for me is probably the idea that it doesn't have to be black-and-white: sex or no sex. We can do a lot of things that make us feel close, connected, and bring pleasure!
For example, "bossy massage"! I had no idea something like this is exist, and we'd have no way to learn about it if we haven't done sessions with you! Such a no pressure, pleasurable way to know and serve your partner!"
"A friend of mine recommended Zhanna's Intimacy Coaching, and after hearing how much she enjoyed it, I signed up for a three months coaching package. Zhanna opened up my heart and inspired me to think critically about my relationship with my sexuality and body. She taught me how to be in my body, recognize my own desires and how communicate that to others. The knowledge and tools I’ve learned are invaluable. I feel more empowered now entering new relationships with others!"
"I've been happy in my sex life since the beginning of my 13-year relationship with my husband, and I have to say working with Zhanna opened up new possibilities and ways of connecting that I never knew were possible!!! I recommend her coaching for happy, satisfied couples as well as new couples!!"
"Our experience with Zhanna was nothing short of transformational. My wife and I started with a series of short sessions where we learned the foundational principles of Tantra. But the game changer for us became our 3-day Immersion program! I would describe myself as a bit skeptical going into the whole process. But from day one, though, Zhanna’s caring approach put me at ease and allowed me to be very open. With Zhanna’s guidance over this time, we had some real breakthroughs in our relationship. We were able to achieve a deeper understanding of each other and some of the things that were preventing us from more natural intimacy. Both my wife and I always felt completely safe and supported under her guidance. We could not recommend Zhanna more highly!"
"When I began working with Zhanna, my goals were to further my self -understanding as a sensual human being, and to learn more about connecting with the people in my life to whom I am closest.
Zhanna has an extraordinarily deep and thorough understanding of the field. Equally importantly, I found her to be a profoundly thoughtful and emphatic person, both on a professional level and in a more personal, emotional sense.
My work under Zhanna’s tutelage proved to be successful beyond my highest hopes and expectations. To anyone who is seeking to begin or further their understanding of the theory and practice of Tantra and related topics, I give Zhanna my highest possible recommendation!"

"I am so grateful I listened to my friend and called Zhanna! For the first time in my life I’ve been able to open up, and to go after what I want for myself when it comes to intimacy and sex. Our sessions offer a safe and respectful space where my wishes and needs are heard and validated. I've noticed that my journey doesn't scare me anymore. I know Zhanna will be there to support me, because she loves what she does and she cares! Just call her and see for yourself!"
"My husband and I are true believers in Zhanna’s approach to sex and intimacy. I came to her as an older woman (age 75) who had “absolutely no libido.” My husband and I had not had sex in a while, since it did nothing for me, and yet we both missed the intimacy and hoped to find it in a different way. She took us from where we were and led us gradually by starting off with exercises of breathing together, facing each other, and laying our hands on the others’ hands. That was totally non-threatening to me and did indeed give us some sense of intimacy. After 10 sessions, I am having full-body orgasms (which I’d never had before without having to use a vibrator). We have our sex life back again! I never thought it would happen, and it truly was not an expectation that I started out with. Additionally, Zhanna is available by phone whenever an exercise isn’t working for me and I need additional coaching. She’s extremely patient, intuitive, and highly skilled!"
"My husband and I have been together for 13 years, married 12. We have 2 children, pets, challenging career schedules etc...
We learned about Zhanna's coaching through our therapist and, at first, dipped our toes in. While we were able to take some great lessons away from our shorter sessions, it was the Immersion program that truly transformed our relationship!
While we were hesitant at first, considering the financial commitment as well as making sure we were able to get away for a few days, we both feel it was the best money we've ever spent!
Zhanna put us at ease immediately. Her vibe, her space, the comfortable furniture, the tea and snacks... all so thoughtfully and naturally designed to make us feel at home. While our sessions were raw and painful at times, we were always brought right back to a place of love and support.
We learned SO much!
My science-minded husband was blown away by, with what may have been perceived as "woo-woo" in the past, the tangible and transformational effect this experience had on him! We left exclaiming, 'every couple we know needs this information!!'
Our time with Zhanna gave us the tools we were missing in our relationship. The tools most couples don't even know they need until it's too late. The proof for us has been how our relationship has changed now that we're back to reality... We I have never been closer and with that comes a positivity that surrounds our whole family!
My husband gave me a card the other day that said, "I've never been more excited for our future" and that sums up our experience perfectly"
"I started working with Zhanna when the limitations of what my excellent therapist was able to help me become clear to me. I was at the point in my life where I was able to deeply connect with my partner during sex, but still uncapable to open up fully from my side. Through conversations, body awareness practices, and conscious consent exercises Zhanna helped me to truly embody the idea that I deserve love and acceptance just like anyone else!
Even now - months later I actively benefit from the work we've done! Thank you so very much for taking my hand and stepping through that door with me, Zhanna!"
"I am very excited about the potential that Tantra brought for both me and my wife! I appreciate how my wife is completely genuine, incredibly brave, and open during our sessions. The exercises that you taught us have been energizing and have created a stronger connection between us. We have now done three sessions, and I can honestly say that Tantra has brought us much closer!"
