Janel Marie Vitale
My passion is giving people permission and the tools to be more authentically themselves in love and sex. I believe that when we customize our relationships to fit our authentic needs and desires, not social expectations, we create emotional intimacy—which is real relationship security. Why? Because we are more likely to stay in relationships that empower us to be our true selves and grow with us as we evolve.
As a certified somatic relationship coach, my mission is to help individuals and partners transform fear, jealousy and insecurity into thriving love that inspires growth, exploration and intimacy. With the tools of emotional intelligence and conscious communication, you can have security and freedom.
How I got here
I've always been into creating a life that authentically fits.
I have traveled the world as a cruise ship singer, lived on communes, experimented with polyamory and hiked 4,500 miles across the United States in search of happiness. Along the way, I learned how to face my fears, embrace what I really want in life and love, and communicate about my needs and desires without shame.
All that paid off when I met the perfect partner for me. Over the years, we designed our ideal relationship: we are deeply in love and we are honest about (and sometimes act on) our attractions to other people. It's not always easy, but at the end of the day, being authentic about our desires brings us closer together. Our shared commitment to emotional awareness and growth, both personally and together, makes it possible.
My journey inspired me to become a coach to help like-minded people design more open and intimate relationships around their authentic needs and desires. Let me be your guide to creating a secure, thriving relationship that truly fits you. I'm so happy you're here!
I live in the San Francisco Bay Area
(born & raised!)
I earned a degree in Communication from USC in 2008.
I am a certified sex & relationship coach.
I am in a thriving open relationship with a partner I love.
I work with people who are on a journey of discovery around what they really want in their intimate relationships, regardless of social convention. As a non-monogamous person by nature, I believe that everyone has the right to consciously choose an authentic intimate life that empowers them to thrive. I'm nonjudgmental and open-minded to all sexual and relationship orientations.
Whether you're straight, queer, monogamous, polyamorous, trans or cis-gendered, you deserve to create healthy, honest relationships that truly fit you.
