I help people liberate their unique sexual expression. I’m one of the top sexologists and most experienced surrogate partners in the United States.
Many years ago, I left my decades-long career as a trial attorney and lobbyist when I realized that it’s not possible to bring an imbalanced system into coherence using the tools of that system.
One day I was sitting with a client who was holding her tiny newborn in her arms. She wanted us to file a lawsuit against the father because she was unhappy with him. With fiery squinted eyes, she vehemently spewed, “I want you to crush his balls.” My legal assistant and I sat in sober silence, taking in the implications for the little angel in her arms and everyone involved.
I realized that my purpose in life would never be realized in those halls. And that it would be more fun to build a new system than to continue struggling to repair those systems.
So I vowed to help people love, not fight.
Trained in virtually every sex-related modality and technique, I’ve dedicated my life to helping adults play. I believe the spark that makes us human is our gift of creativity, dreaming, imagining, desire and play. Which are all fueled by our sexual energy. I am trauma informed and have over a decade of experience holding space for sexual awakening.
I have guided hundreds of people into a life of thrilling love, sex, intimacy and creativity. People who feel empty inside when it comes to deep connection with others. My clients and workshop participants transfer their creative bliss into other areas of life creating financial abundance, purpose in life, and a reignited passion for living life fully.
I am a surrogate partner, and I offer weekend workshops, private programs, and VIP retreats. In my spare time I organize the WheelHeads and the East Austin Kinksters; and I’m the long time organizer of the Sacred Sexuality Austin meetup, one of the largest meetups of its kind in the world.
“As a teacher, River was amazing, gifted, experienced, a strong and passionate healer on a mission. I appreciate the way River was not afraid to directly address our mind tricks and old stories.”
“With regard to River, I started with ‘patient and kind.’ Which River certainly is. And then I looked up 1 Corinthians 13:4 and, wow, is that passage apropos! River is love!”
