Dating Coaches and Safety Tips

Sasha Cagen, Life Coach

Sasha Cagen offers life coaching that supports women’s empowerment. Sasha coined the phrase ‘quirky alone,’ to describe someone who enjoys being single (but is not opposed to being in a relationship), and who generally prefers to be alone rather than date for the sake of being in a couple.  

Wendy Newman, Relationship Coach

Wendy Newman helps singles and couples create spectacular relationships, through workshops, videos, articles, books, and coaching.

Chas August, Intimacy & Relationship Counselor

Chas August offers counseling and coaching on relationships, intimacy, and life.
