This page will introduce you to Pavini, their credentials, and will share with you a bit of their story of why they do this work.
Hi! I'm Pavini! I'm so glad you've found my work. I look forward to connecting with you and hearing about how it is to be you.
The most important thing you should know about my work is that it is sourced from my own story of learning to be in securely attached and functional relationships.
I'm in a committed, conscious queer life partnership with my lovely partner. We work hard to have a fantastic, life-affirming, and FUN relationship!
I say this because I know what it takes to build a connection, especially when one or both of you is impacted by trauma. I know the skills necessary to create intimate, long-lasting relationships because I practice them. I'm a somatic coach deeply committed to my own pleasure and wellness.
My journey of reclaiming myself and creating the relationships I want means I hold you with infinite compassion for all the stuck places, traumas, and shame that lead you to me.
