Good lord am I glad I found Tari.

His work, expertise, and advice has pulled me up out of a serious rut of isolation, and unmet desires. I was feeling invisible, hopeless. Within minutes of hearing him speak the truth about intimacy, desire, and closeness, I knew that I had not only found a detailed map of this critical information, but also, an experienced guide to workshop the territory.

I have nearly exhausted his entire archive by now, and also received his direct counsel. Tari has cultivated so much experience over so many years holding multiple perspectives. His and hers, and theirs, and mine, and yours, and his own, and he brings all of this to bare in his work in service to the greatest intimacy possible, where everyone wins. AND, to truly benefit, you must be willing to be self reflective, consider where you may be showing up out of phase, out of integrity, out of f**ks.

I appreciate and respect his dead accurate descriptions, as though he's reading my mind. I can honestly say that no man has ever before given a voice to my thoughts and desires the way he has. He genuinely knows what people (yes especially women) want and feel. This is because Tari is drowning in experience, he listens intently, and integrates all of his clients' perspectives into his wisdom.

Upon meeting Tari in person I only grew to trust him even more because he actually embodies everything he teaches. Get ready to have your mind blown by the precision of what he is tracking and sharing, and especially by the implications of taking on this knowledge yourself. Brace yourself, here comes the actual truth, the salty humor, the irreverence, the grace, the sheer entertainment. Most of all, get ready to see what you couldn't see before and to untangle your BS so you can show up for yourself and your partner in a way that lights you both up like a firework show!

Tari is very professional.

Since the moment you get there the session transforms into something more, you start putting things in practice from the start, body language, reading it, your eyes can say more than you can imagine and is something he can highlight to your partner. Tari also speaks Spanish which makes it easier for native speakers to express then selves since Spanish can have very unique words to describe and emotion.

He shares so many tricks for guys with a dummy female human which makes it more interactive and visual, in my opinion this is a gem for couples. You can follow up and message him in case you forget an advice from your session and in addition to that he has an amazing podcast in apple podcast, I encourage everyone to listen! Don't think of the cost of the session, think on how much are you willing to invest to save your relationship or marriage, it's up to you to make your money worth and fallow all the tips and advice!

Tari is very effective.

Tari has a keen eye for identifying interesting aspects of a relationship that traditional marriage counselors aren't looking for. I think he's very effective at moving the dial, either direction it needs to go, quickly.

Tari is incredibly talented and intuitive.

Closeness helped me in an area and season of my relationship when I didn't know where or who else to turn to.

None of the standard therapies or therapists will address this very real part of intimacy the way that Tari and his practice at Closeness does. I was so nervous at the start of my first session. The next session I brought my partner. It was hard for us both at first, but Tari is incredibly talented and intuitive. He never once allowed my big fears to become reality. I was most worried about pushing my partner away and my relationship imploding by bringing my bf in for sessions. But now, after working with Tari for a bit and seeing the changes at home,

I can't stress enough how worth it this work has been! It's a scary ledge to step onto, but if you and your partner are willing, you are in amazing hands with Tari. After one session with my partner we are already verbally and physically more connected, in and out of bed. The fact that after 2.5 years, things are improving, is a massive win that I was worried we would never achieve. I am happy to be a reference, if you would like to ask me questions Tari can connect us. Just don't wait to take action because this therapy won't make or break your relationship, it will just accelerate what was already destined to happen, which frees your energy for more of what you need and desire.

We experienced improvement almost immediately!

I had this on my “to do” list for months. I’m so happy that I finally threw caution to the wind & went for it! My marriage hit a boring rock bottom & I knew I (we) needed some outside advice. I met with Tari alone for the first appointment. I shared my concerns & how they were affecting our marriage. The following sessions were with myself & my Husband & Tari was there to help us navigate some much needed conversations! We experienced improvement almost immediately! You won’t be disappointed with the advice & guidance you’ll receive from Tari, so just go for it!

If I could give Tari a 7 out of 5 stars I would!!

He is very wise, intuitive and intelligent as he gently helps you move forward with a number of options and techniques that immediately help you improve in a very short period of time. We noticed a big difference even after our first session. It's almost incredible to believe that the subtle guidance and easy to apply wisdom Tari offers, can have such a powerful effect on your life.

Tari created such a safe and open space.

This was my first session/venue to ask any and every question about sex. I am a single girl that hasn't had much sexual experience. Tari created such a safe and open space for me to ask my questions and get true answers. I took so many notes, and I look forward to putting them to good use. Thank you so much Tari! Looking forward to meeting with you again. 10 out of 10 would recommend to anyone!

Simply WOW!!!

If you need to get help in person that’s fully tailored to your own individual needs, Tari is very easy to connect with, extremely prompt, professional and compassionate.

Tari is the personification of “common sense” and nowadays common sense is not so common. Seeing him in person makes a world of difference.

Then there is this podcast. I enjoy it immensely! It’s extremely easy to find yourself immersed in listening to Tari! He covers universally relevant subjects so directly and in such a down to earth, compassionate manner.

He has a fresh, simple and elegant approach to human relationships and beyond. Everyone can find help or learn something new by listening to the Closeness Podcast. I hope I have ignited your curiosity either to contact Tari directly for Closeness Coaching or at the very least to tune in right away to the podcast! Happy Listening!

Tari has been instrumental

Tari has been instrumental in helping me navigate the world of dating and relationships following the end of a 31 year marriage. I feel totally comfortable talking with him regarding intimacy challenges and he has provided me with suggestions that I have been able to apply immediately.

I appreciate his openness and encouragement and highly recommend him as an intimacy/relationship coach.

Tari offers a genuine and straightforward approach to exploring issues that arise in relationships.

He walked me through my commitment problems and their accomplices. I went in for a solo session to address my concerns on a rather wide variety of areas in a relationship, and he was very accommodating with my clear lack of direction - "where do I start".

I wish I could give Tari more than 5 stars!

"I found the Closeness podcast awhile back (which I can't recommend enough), and I was so excited to discover he was located in San Diego. I had been researching intimacy coaching and premarital counseling for awhile, and found Tari to be a perfect fit. Seeking help for certain issues seemed intimating to me, but from the first communication Tari was so welcoming and approachable. 

His in person coaching has been a game changer! I've been to many therapists in my life but none of them have ever made me feel as comfortable and understood as Tari does. He has been able to dissect so many issues, anxieties and behaviors and then transform them with his exercises and expertise. My husband and I have been able to completely transform our relationship, intimacy and communication. Tari's coaching has been the best investment in myself + our relationship!"

A touchstone of deep life experience

Tari’s Voice has become a soothing, wise and experienced friend. A touchstone of deep life experience, conversations of sincere respect of both sexes, thoughtfulness and a truly balanced point of view that I believe remarkably represents both male and female behaviors, thoughts, feelings and experiences uncannily well. Tari is a gifted thinker and speaker. He has a rare and important message and as this podcast reaches more and more people it will no doubt impact so many lives and relationships in such profound meaningful ways.

Listening has made me question and reassess so much in my relationship with my husband. Tari has encouraged me to re-ask myself, “What do I need from my partner?” “What turns me on?” “What qualities do I admire and respect a man?” What specific things aren’t working for me now and what can I identify that I am not clear on an expressing? All vital questions to ponder and find answers to if one wants to powerfully create anything such as a fabulous fulfilling relationship with others in life. I feel lucky to have this show in my life and get so excited for new releases. Each one thought-provoking, nourishing and so refreshing.

If you haven’t already, subscribe NOW and get ready to laugh, smile, shift your perspective, ask yourself questions, grow… And in all honesty, probably be really turned on sometimes too 😉

Tari is one of the best.

I am writing this review from my new boyfriend’s bedroom! We have been seeing each other for 9 months and are wildly, deeply in love. I attribute this to diligently working with Tari from Closeness for the past 2 years.

Of ALL the therapists and coaches I have worked with — and believe me there have been a few — Tari is one of the best. I’ve been doing therapeutic work since 2010 and this is the first time my life is truly taking off.

Here are just some of the subjects he has helped me with:

- Confidence
- Healthy dating
- Finding a relationship
- Improving my everyday
interactions with men in general - S*xual traumas
- Women’s issues and leveraging his privilege to help me

Tari is extremely personable and fun to work with. His relational skillfulness is a breath of fresh air. He’s an emotionally safe person. Ted Lasso and Brené Brown would love him!

Let’s be real, we all want more than just better s*x. I’ve also used Tari for lifestyle coaching. He has helped me in so many arenas from fashion, career, family dynamics and personal training, to anxiety, productivity, and getting out of feeling stuck.

For frame of reference, I’m a 31 year old woman.
Shoutout to his podcast Closeness. It helped me on a visceral level and taught me how to say no. Happy to chat with someone as a referral if they want to talk to a real client who recommends Closeness. Cheers and good luck!

Just doing the intake form alone is valuable.

We came across Tari here on Google and listened to one of his podcasts... we both felt so "seen" hearing it that we decided to sign up for a session.

Just doing the intake form alone is valuable and allows the session to immediately dive into real topics. We already communicate well and are happy as a couple in general, but we had some specific topics to work through and felt like Tari was able to add a lot of value quickly. He is skilled at understanding both masculine and feminine perspectives, as well as interpreting our various points, which made us feel comfortable immediately. Would highly recommend

From the first session, we have noticed an immense improvement.

I must start by saying that we came to Closeness in the middle of a relationship that was hanging by a thread, where communication, among some other aspects, was not ideal, and caused not only emotional overflows, but also problems with our intimacy.

We have 3 sessions so far and from the first one, we have noticed an immense improvement in our relationship.

Tari has taught and guided us in the most respectful way to understand how our mind and body work, to "translate" everything we feel so that the couple understands what we want to communicate and to find ways to fall in love again.

Thanks to his professional guidance we are finding a balance in which there is a healthy and fun relationship and in which we hope to continue for the well-being of ourselves and our family.

(Original) Debo empezar por decir que llegamos a Closeness en medio de una relación que estaba pendiendo de un hilo, donde la comunicación, entre algunos otros aspectos no era ideal, lo que causaba no solo desbordes emocionales sino también problemas en nuestra intimidad.

Llevamos 3 sesiones y desde la primera hemos notado una inmensa mejoría en nuestra relación: Tari nos ha enseñado y guiado de la manera más respetuosa a entender cómo funciona nuestra mente y nuestro cuerpo, a "traducir" todo lo que sentimos para que la pareja entienda lo que queremos comunicar y a encontrar maneras de volvernos a enamorar.

Gracias a su guianza profesional estamos encontrando un balance en el que existe una relación sana y divertida y en el que esperamos continuar por el bienestar de nosotros y nuestra familia.

Tari's empathy, and logic, allowed me to open up.

Finding someone who got me and understood the work I want to do with myself, right off the bat, couldn’t be more rare or appreciated once it’s found. Tari's empathy, and logic, allowed me to open up even more than I thought possible, so that I feel safe to be myself and explore the areas that are uncomfortable where I aim to grow. The universe gave me exactly what I needed by leading me to Tari.

My husband found Tari in a very sensitive and crucial time in our relationship.

My husband found Tari in a very sensitive and crucial time in our relationship.

I having been to many therapists, was skeptical because the others we went to didn’t really do anything to help our situation. However, the second we met Tari, I knew this was going to be different!

He has helped our relationship more than any licensed therapist has ever helped us. He is real and phrases emotions and feelings in ways I have never heard them phrased. He gives me words to things I didn’t know I could explain in words which in turn helped me understand myself and strengthen my relationship with my husband.

I love how he has helped my husband to open up more about his feelings and most of all, how he has given us multiple ways to look at a situation. Thank you Tari for all that you do for us! I can’t wait to have our session with you tonight!

Tari helped my husband and I create stronger connection in our relationship after just one session. He’s a wizard with navigating what women want and translating it to men in ways that stick at home.

We’ve been to many therapists throughout the years and let’s just say he’s worth every penny.

If you are needing an intimate tune up, Tari is your guy.

My boyfriend and I sought his services to iron out a few things that seemed to be topics too sensitive for us to delve into on our own, despite the fact that we have excellent communication and a very positive and well functioning relationship.

Tari is a wonderful coach that really seeks to validate each person's background, experience and world view in a non-judgmental, affirming way. Even in the first few sessions, his intuition and careful observations were spot on, and he helped my partner and I approach very uncomfortable topics with ease and sensitivity. Tari has given us very concrete steps each time to apply, so my partner and I didn't feel vague or lost about what to focus on, and we could see and feel differences in our interactions immediately.

Also, Tari offers such comprehensive support via his additional podcasts and is always quick to respond with feedback when we have a question or update to share via text or phone. Whether your relationship is on the rocks or just needs a new spark, Tari has the experience and thoughtful consideration to address each person's needs and bring out the best in both partners.

Reach out to Tari if you're debating it, you won't regret it.

My husband and I were seeking a little guidance in elevating our relationship. It felt a little confusing to know who to turn to. As someone who pretty regularly invests in her wellbeing/professional life, this was something super personal that took some time finding the right person.

Tari was actually the first person we spoke to and we decided to work with him on the spot. It was one of the greatest decisions we made for not only our marriage but our lives, especially during COVID times.

Talking about the details in your relationship, sex life, etc with a stranger can be a scary thing, but I'm so glad we spent the time and money to work through everything with Tari. We spent a total of 4 months together and my husband and I both agree that EVERYONE needs a relationship coach...because think about it, who else teaches you about intimacy? Reach out to Tari if you're debating it, you won't regret it.

Closeness became my favorite podcast.

Closeness became my favorite podcast from the first sound of Tari’s soothing voice. He draws you in with auditory pleasure, then stimulates your mind by speaking eloquently and honestly about the topics you’ve been dying to know more about, but too afraid to ask your friends.

It’s so refreshing to find a place to get real answers about sex and relationships, without any judgement. I love that the podcast is so inclusive, as Tari speaks to those in all types of relationships (whether you’re single, dating or married) and sexual orientations.

Tari is part sex coach, part talk show host and part erotic novel hero. He’s the type of person whose mere presence elevates the people around him, causing them to become more aware, present and relaxed.

His voice is soothing, his smile is genuine and his advice is based on both experience and principles that work. Tari is also extremely sensitive to the specific needs of individuals and I find it highly refreshing that as a man, he has a deep understanding of what women want.

Through my own conversations and experience with Tari, I’ve felt heard and understood, never judged. I highly recommend connecting with Tari so that he can help you experience more closeness with your partner or partners, and ultimately, a deeper relationship with yourself.

This podcast came to me at a great time of life. After leaving a 6 year relationship that became very unhealthy I was reintroduced to the dating world.

Tari is the real deal sex coach!!

We’ve spent thousands of dollars on relationship and marital coaching. I can tell you without a doubt Tari has it right. The man can take complex, sensitive, and awkward topics and make each party comfortable discussing it. He has made me feel closer to my wife in so many ways in just a few short sessions. We’ve spent so much money on relationship counseling/ coaching in the past, but all we really needed was someone like Tari to spark the love again.

He just has a way to him that is non judgmental and it allows everyone to speak their truth on topics that are awkward and uncomfortable. He can take everything you said and break it down to pieces and help you figure out why you are doing what to do are doing, and all in a non-judgmental way.

If your having trouble in your relationship, give Tari a try, he is one of the best we’ve been to. One piece of advice, engage in the small exercises he asks you and your spouse to go through at his office. It helps you understand your spouse, and it helps Tari figure out / diagnose what’s really going on.

Absolutely love Tari and the podcast!!

Recently started listening to the Closeness podcast and after the first one I was hooked and binge listened to the rest.

I fell in love with Tari’s way of speaking, calm demeanor and personality.

Tari has a way of discussing uncomfortable yet relatable topics with tactfulness, sensitivity and good taste… not to mention his voice is so soothing and easy to listen to!

The relationship advice and provided tools are so sexy and exciting, they make me want to apply them in my own life and relationship. His health and self care advice is inspiring and makes me want to be a better person. Boy does he know what women want, need and desire. Make sure your man listens to it as well. Ladies, I recommend listening to “a sensual meditation” or “Sunday morning” and having a little fun 😉 Thank you for your time in creating such a wonderful podcast! Please keep them coming!!!

Working with Tari has been such a wonderful experience.

I would absolutely recommend his coaching to anyone seeking support in relationships, with physical or emotional intimacy, and generally navigating the waters of love & life.

My fiancé and I met with Tari for premarital coaching recently. With the help of his advice and insight, within just a few weeks we were able to work through sources of conflict that had been unresolved for some time. Additionally, we have had so much growth in communication and deeper connections within our relationship. Tari is professional, compassionate, and easy to talk with about fragile topics. He has a calming presence that puts everyone at ease, and his open-minded perspective enables each person to feel genuinely understood.

I look forward to more sessions in the future, and think the unique experience of this coaching is an incredible gift you can give to yourself & your partner. Thank you Tari!!

I've never met a man who understands women, or relationship dynamics, the way Tari does.

From the moment you meet him, you'll be able to tell that there's something different, something deeper, in the way he communicates. His insight and non-judgmental approach make every conversation comfortable--even the ones you might not expect to be. We all need an outside view of ourselves and our relationships from time to time, and you won't find anyone who can provide more valuable guidance than Tari.

I felt an ease about his presence and a comfort from his demeanor.

Ever since my first session with Tari, I felt an ease about his presence and a comfort from his demeanor. His knowledge and attitude provided me an opportunity to express myself in newfound ways. His open-minded, non-judgemental approach is liberating to experience (especially from a man!) and has encouraged me to speak and act more freely about my desires. He truly understands what women really want and knows how to help them reach those goals - big or small.

He not only hears your needs, but LISTENS to them too. His skills by far surpass that of any coach I’ve had in the past. 10/10 would definitely recommend.

I have found Tari to be both impeccable as well as someone who operates from a deep level of courage.

Tari’s vast experience in the realm of relationships, along with his deep understanding of passionate intimate experiences, gives him a rich, tasteful and uncensored view into sparking or renewing your own relationship and sex life on all levels.

This comes through in his words, poise and expertise as well as his ability to see things that others simply cannot.

Even the simple act of a walk through a grocery store, while in Tari’s presence, would immediately give you a tangible experience of how to increase your sensual magnetism as man. It is uncanny how women are able to open up to him, and it’s fascinating how well he relates to the opposite gender. Tari is an interesting combination of someone who is both very safe to receive coaching from as a man, while at the same time being able to activate strong sexual excitement within his clients, to help their relationship thrive. I have found Tari to be both impeccable as well as someone who operates from a deep level of courage.

Tari was a gentleman and guided the conversation into areas that we could explore safely.

I invested in Tari’s is coaching package as a gift to myself and my wife as we were nearing our anniversary.

When we met with Tari for the first time, we were a bit anxious and uncertain of what he would ask and how we would feel. Within the first five minutes we were put at ease and could tell that Tari is a classy, heart-centered individual who has a passion for helping couple’s experience closeness and connection at the highest level.

My wife and I began to share stories of how we met, our history of ups and downs and our questions. Tari was a gentleman and guided the conversation into areas that we could explore safely while still touching on topics that we otherwise would never have had the boldness to do by ourselves.

I have experienced many more coaching sessions since then and will continue to do so as I am seeing amazing results in my marriage.

Now my wife and I continue to discover things about each other that we’ve never known, even after years of marriage and multiple children. I am finding that we are getting that spark back into our marriage that we had before we had children. I would highly recommend anyone reach out to Tari for an open, candid conversation to see how they can improve their Closeness connection within their current relationship or to ready themselves for an emotional connection when they welcome in their next romantic relationship.

Wow! Tari is amazing!

I went in for a first session and I immediately felt comfortable in Tari's presence. He is very calm, gentle, compassionate, understanding, knowledgeble, nonjudgemental, honest, warm and has a comforting presence. It's fascinating how he can fully understand what message you're trying to get across and be spot on and so intuitive. He is able to break down complicated situations in a way that is easy to comprehend and give you tools that are easy and effective to follow.

Very down to earth and knows how to connect with the younger crowds(20 somethings) and able to understand and navigate situations presented to him that are unique to today's generation. If you want to understand men, need help in navigating a relationship, want to learn how to build intimacy, or just plain take charge of your life and be a badass, Tari is your go-to!!

Nothing is off limits, so express your heart out! I felt so relieved after our session and felt like there was finally some clarity and weight lifted off my shoulders, as well as a resolution to my concerns moving forward. I plan on continuing to see Tari for any future counseling! Thank you Tari!!

The Closeness podcasts dives into conversations most of us will never have.

The Closeness podcasts dives into conversations most of us will never have, or even think to have, yet are incredibly needed.

Sex and intimacy can be polarizing topics, but with Tari they’re an open forum to discover what joys await each individual, should they so desire. The way he approaches both the viewpoints and experiences of both males and females is useful to further understand how we can bring more fulfillment to our sexual partner(s). After each listen, I feel less self-judgement and more openness, and of course, closeness, to myself, my partner, and humans in general.

Thank you Tari for sharing your insights and experiences with the world!

It is amazing how much understanding he has.

If you are looking for understanding on topics where you never knew who to turn to, Tari is the one. He will never make you feel judged and just completely understands. It is amazing how much understanding he has of us women, our needs and wants. Tari has made such a great impact on how I see and deal with my relationships and the loved ones around me.

I am now able to understand aspects of myself I have always struggled with and had already discussed with a previous therapist. Most professionals do not know how to approach the intimate topic so wonderfully as Tari does. He is so professional and at the same time makes me feel so comfortable to talk about anything and everything. Thank you for being so great and for continually helping me understand myself.

Tari has gained my trust as an intimacy expert/trustworthy coach.

I love the podcasts on Closeness! They are fun, engaging and perfect for any person who thinks they know everything about sex, hahaha! Just when you think you know it all Tari will challenge this belief along with many others about sexuality.

His podcasts always show both sides of the “subject stick,” I believe he calls it, and provides multiple insights on all topics discussed. He surely speaks from experience and has gained my trust as an intimacy expert/trustworthy coach in just one podcast (which I’ve listened to twice actually. If you’re curious check it out it’s called Deep Listening, The Oral Sex Edition. An in depth exploration of how to go down.

I can honestly say he has made a meaningful impact.

I met Tari in person, and from the first time we spoke, I felt like I could share with him the most intimate of things without judgment. I can honestly say he has made a meaningful impact in my life through his podcasts, and even more so through our one on one interactions, which frankly, have been some of the most meaningful and authentic one on one interactions I’ve ever had with a human being.

Tari offers a judgment free zone–and I can’t stress that enough–to discuss and process any number of issues. Among other things, he has personally helped me (and continues to help me) overcome deeply rooted insecurities and their effects in my relationships. He is so truly gifted in his ability to listen, understand, and advise. If you’re struggling in relationships of any kind, from sex to self-love. Go see Tari, you won’t regret it!

Tari challenges me to think deeper.

Tari challenges me to think deeper about insecurities and behaviors I engage in subconsciously, by bringing them to awarenesses so that positive change can occur. He creates a safe space, allowing vulnerability to discuss intimate or difficult topics. He is truly interested in listening and discovering with you on your journey of personal growth and is gifted in knowing the right questions to ask.

I often struggle finding the right words to express feelings and his exceptional use of language allows freedom for those thoughts to be articulated more clearly.

Tari is a wonderful person to nurture personal growth so that you can strengthen your relationships with others. Both our conversations and listening to this podcast have allowed for some much needed reflection. His communication is encouraging, his presence is safe and conversation enlightening.

Highly recommend Tari!

He carries amazing tools and excercises to unravel blockages. Me and Wesley had a huge break through that brought us into a space of openness and receptivity to one another.

Our intimacy has greatly improved just after one session! So excited to see what will unfold for us next

He makes everyone feel safe and want to open up.

Tari’s ability to understand women, intimacy, relationship issues, arousal and attraction is unparalleled.

But what’s more important than the knowing, is the way he shares his knowledge and gifts with his clients. It's already an extremely vulnerable position for a man (or woman) to come in for intimacy coaching or sexual guidance with their partner.

The idea of another person explaining, demonstrating or role playing situations has the potential to be scary or trigger embarrassment. But Tari is able to coach in such a classy and tasteful manner, doing everything with full consent from both parties and making the whole process enjoyable for everyone.

He’s got an uncanny gift to “read the room” and always makes sure we are comfortable, and even having fun!

He doesn’t talk down to his clients or exhibit any sign of superiority, and this makes everyone feel safe and want to open up. I’m really thankful for the coaching I’ve received from Tari over the years and hope this helps others feel safe to come in for coaching.

I’m recommending Closeness coaching sessions to all my friends!

Counseling and therapy can sometimes  feel like a waste of time and money. So, walking into the coaching office definitely threw us off at first since my partner and I were clearly uncomfortable with where to even begin.

However, I’m so grateful for Tari’s ability to navigate emotions and our comfort level while making us feel as though we’d known him for years. I’m also proud of my partner’s ability to be open and honest! I feel that made all the difference in Tari being able to show me how to better understand what he needs, as well as what I need to reflect on and do differently. 

The way Tari heard each one of us, helped us to respect and understand one another again and explore different ways to satisfy one another, in and out of the bedroom was so perfect and much needed! 

He truly helped us establish healthy, clear boundaries and showed us how we can show love in so many different ways. We left Closeness with renewed hope, excitement and passion that we thought we had lost. Looking forward to the next session and I’m recommending Closeness coaching sessions to all my friends!

His coaching sessions gave me a comfortable and safe space to talk.

If you happen to be single, Tari can still be a great resource for you. His coaching sessions gave me a comfortable and safe space to talk about what was happening in my dating life, as well as what I thought I did wrong or right.

Sometimes in dating, I tend to get nervous or anxious, and I wanted to have someone to talk to and process all of that with. I also wanted to be better when it came to moving things to the bedroom. That’s another thing Tari has helped me with. He offers a ton of great resources both in person and online.

One being the well known Closeness podcast, which I can’t promote enough! It’s a great way to learn how to be a better person and how to deeply connect with another human. He has a lot of knowledge and experience that can help someone transform and grow through any stage of life.

When I’m in a committed relationship, I plan to go back to Tari to get some tutorials on presence and intimate sexual practices that i can use together with my partner.

I strongly recommend Tari!

Tari provides an environment where I feel safe to explore all of my intimacy issues. He has an intuitive and gentle way of teaching new thought patterns, especially when it comes to interacting with those closest to me.

I feel stronger and more confident to handle challenges as they come my way, but above all, he has helped me find the missing piece that makes me whole again. It's been such a transformative experience with him as my coach. If you're looking to create real and lasting change, I strongly recommend Tari!

Real sex coaching and guidance to help you and your partner get to a better and more erotic place.  Full support through navigating different sex drives, approaches, cheating, attachment styles, and different ways of getting aroused.

With consent we also offer guidance and support to help your partner initiate, advance and be more successful through all the stages of intimacy.  Immediately step back into your sexual power, and articulate what you want, verbally and non verbally, even from the very first session.


Why I'm Different

If you have experienced traditional forms of therapy, sex therapy, psychotherapy or marriage and family counseling before, you may have felt a little frustrated in the sexual department.  As it turns out, many qualified professionals aren’t comfortable diving into the nitty gritty details of your unique situation.  Or maybe you may have felt that the advice was rather generic or bland.  As a  Closeness coach, I can get right to the subjects that are bothering your most, no matter how intimate  they are, and address them immediately. Safe, stress free and in an beautiful and relaxing environment
