TurnON pleasure, intimacy and love

Want to get more of what you need and want in your relationships and sex life? 

I’m Dr. Alison Ash and I know what's required to create the connections you desire. Sexual empowerment requires deep self-awareness and the ability to express yourself confidently.

When you’re fumbling in the dark, I’ll illuminate the way so you can turn on your light. Are you ready to TurnON pleasure, intimacy and...love?

I invite you to attend a workshop or schedule a coaching session for more personalized attention. I work with individuals, couples, triads, and more in-person and virtually. 

Aly’s coaching was just what I needed...Aly was super nonjudgmental and comfortable talking about things that I’m not yet comfortable about myself. She was kind and compassionate to a degree that I’m not used to with therapists. She also didn’t beat around the bush; she got up to speed quickly with my situation, figured out the issues and constraints, and then offered me a dozen different pieces of down-to-earth good advice about setting boundaries and keeping everyone safe...I wish someone like Aly had been there for me when I was a teenager. But, better late than never.

I am a sex and intimacy coach and educator who has been examining the intricacies of sex and gender for the past 15 years. A champion for others overcoming shame and deepening pleasure, I help my clients experience the kinds of sexual interactions and romantic relationships they long for by teaching them how to create and sustain emotional, physical, and sexual intimacy.  

As a sociologist with a PhD from Stanford, I have a comprehensive understanding of the complex societal challenges that often lead to unsatisfying and disempowering sexual experiences. I draw on my extensive training in the Hakomi method of somatic psychotherapy as well as Somatica model of sex and intimacy coaching to support my clients to radically explore and courageously express themselves.

I design workshops and retreats and offer individuals and couples coaching to give others the tools to discover their desires and confidently pursue them. TurnON pleasure, intimacy and love!
