What if you don’t EVER have to choose one or the other, and there is the 3rd option?

What if ALL parts of yourself, including those parts that you are terrified or ashamed
of actually make you irresistible?

Come play with me in the light and shadow. It would produce results way beyond your imagination.



Mariko was born and raised in Japan; went to good schools, got good grades, got good jobs, and at the age of 25,she came to America to do her Masters.

After that she got good jobs, got married, and had children. She followed all the rules to be successful, and worked hard in all the "light" areas, while rejecting and hiding her "shadow" areas, particularly her sexual self.

That’s because Mariko was a rule follower, sex is a taboo in today's world, and she chose to stay away from anything labeled as a taboo. On the outside, she was a successful person. But on the inside, she felt lost and misaligned for many years. When her life events (starting with divorce) forced her to look into her own shadows, she unexpectedly re-discovered her innate worthiness that was lost since childhood. Fear and shame were obstacles to her befriending her shadows. Accepting her shadows revealed the path to her power and wholeness. She was also pleasantly surprised that rather than something to be afraid of her shadow integration journey itself was liberating, fun, and exhilarating. Now she is passionate about guiding people to befriend their shadows in thrilling, playful, and irresistible explorations.

Mariko is a women’s empowerment coach, a business woman, a thought leader, and a lightworker.

She is a certified coach in sex, love, relationship, and tantric intimacy; and is currently furthering her studies in female domination as well as in conscious dating. She holds a BA in Business from Keio University in Tokyo, Japan, and an MA in International Economics from the Johns Hopkins University (SAIS).


Mariko was truly a joy to work with, and a remarkable coach to meet. Having never before sought to work with a coach, Mariko's calm, direct, and encouraging approach was a perfect fit for me. With her innate ability to distill all she heard from me, and offer incredibly perceptive insights while keeping our sessions gentle and fun, I feel we made remarkable progress in our sessions together. The improved sense of clarity and confidence I experienced so rapidly after working through our sessions and the exercises devised by Mariko was both exciting and empowering; a remarkable feeling to achieve in such a brief period of time.

I will not hesitate to keep in touch with Mariko as I feel her input, skills, and the coaching space she creates will be endlessly valuable in my ongoing journey as a freelance consultant and working mother.

I met Mariko via social media when I was going through the most difficult personal time in my life feeling disempowered and lost in my relationship. She did an awesome job coaching me through my relationship issues and showed me how to reveal my own self worth when I needed it most. She had the knowledge and ideas I needed to grow, learn and make changes that were due to be made by me at this time of my life. Right out of the gate our conversations showed she cares and wants to share her knowledge. After some time zeroing in on what I needed we came up with a great plan together. We focused on self love and self worth. It just worked, the assignments and suggestions made by her made everything fall into place and perspective. Mariko showed me the way to empower myself and make achievable goals in a way that I could relate to. Many changes are still ahead in my life but I now know i have the tools and power to make the changes I need to make to be happy. I am so grateful to know Mariko and I know she will be there for me.

Dearest Mariko,
I want to write you this E-Mail out of gratitude for our sessions and the talks we had on the topic of sexuality and business. I am deeply grateful for the time, commitment and love you dedicated to my growth, development and empowerment. I felt so seen, heard and acknowledged by you. Since I studied Sustainable Business I have often felt like a weird person in conventional business contexts. There are parts of me that reject the usual way of doing business, a way of business that burns people out, destroys nature and lets no room for intuition, flow or unconventionalities. You helped me understand those parts and to welcome them with a lot of humor and love. There is as well this deep desire in me to make business differently, especially when it comes to building my own juicy business. Your coaching is full of curiosity, acknowledgement, love and powerful advice. It felt so good to be heard by you and your reflections were medicine for my empowerment. You are a badass business woman and as such your advice was priceless to me. After our sessions I felt encouraged to stay true to my unique way of doing business, to who I am and I started to feel like a Goddess instead of a Weirdo. You made me believe in my unique gift for the world: A way of doing business that is in alignment with nature, my own personal truth and power and the collective Feminine.

I’m feeling confident now to rise my prices.
I see my own worth and the worth of my work and I believe in the change I can do in the world.
The way you interconnect the power of sex with building a successful business is magical. I loved the depth of your sessions, the joy and laughter and the tears we cried together.
Thank you Mariko for your beautiful coaching!

I want to thank you so much for your extremely powerful (self defense for women) workshop. The content was amazing and very well organized! Practical, simple and highly effective! This workshop could be very helpful for domestic abuse victims and survivors. I've attended many workshops, courses and therapy associated with this subject but none match empowering advise and practical techniques. Thank you again!

I hope you will facilitate more in the future. Also I loved your win win win charity donation idea.

I.M., Ireland

The session that you gave to us yesterday was so amazing! Work itself that you let us through really helped with some deep blocks that we did not know how to overcome. This is a miracle thing that you do. Also, you yourself as a person are a fantastic leader in pioneering couples to new and better places. I really appreciate your strength, your resilience, your clarity, and your gentleness. You are a magician!
