OG conflict

The conventional way...

Many of us feel stressed or overwhelmed during fights with our partners. We often feel under threat when tension is running high because it feels like we've got something to loose — dignity, respect, identify...you name it.

This perceived "threat" activates a sort of self-preservation mode in our bodies, which can look like withdrawal – aka shutting down or avoiding. Or we might move toward our partner, but with a vengeance –  aka defensiveness or criticism.

Even if we manage to communicate during these stressful states, the conversation often derails into something that detracts from the matter at hand which only causes more insecurity, confusion, and disconnection.

Ever get stuck in a game of “who’s version of the story is right,” or “kitchen sinking” – where you remind each other of everything they've ever done “wrong?” This is exactly what I’m talking about. These distractions don’t move us any closer to the confidence, clarity, or connection we seek, yet because we think we’re gaining some sense of control in the fight, we often fall prey to this never ending struggle for power.

Conventional fighting blows. This “me against you” approach leads us to believe that our partner just doesn’t care, or that the “thing” you’re fighting about will never go away… but don’t be deceived by your thoughts. You’re not a slave to “the way things are.” There's a way to resolve the "unresolvable." There’s a way to prevent most fights from happening in the first place. There’s a way to feel confident, clear, and connected even when shit gets hard.

ME

Hi, I'm Jess Vega

Sex and love coach, Tantrika, and former saboteur d'amour.

Not your BFF

I’m NOT the kind of coach who’s your BFF, but I’m not the bogeyman either. I’m your ally in love and a stand for the relationship you want to create. This means that I'll risk your approval in service to your dreams. At times, this will feel uncomfortable for both of us, but I guarantee that it will lead to more you and more connection in the end ;)

Not your guru

I’m NOT the “just think positive...everything is love and light” woo woo guru coach. You're a rich and complex being, and a head in the clouds approach to awakening and liberation tends to downplay the complexity of your human experience down here on Earth. I'm a two feet planted firmly on the ground kind of coach who draws on the wisdom of Tantrik spirituality and neuroscience to get you results in your sex and love life.

My commitment to you

Saying yes to a coaching relationship is a courageous act of self-love that deserves respect. If you're a yes, I commit to being:

- An assertive yet compassionate liaison between you and your blindspots.

- An ally who will challenge your thinking, keep you honest, and hold you accountable.

- A ride or die who creates the safe space you need to fully fall apart and come back to life.
