Hi, I'm Marlee.
I am a sensual reclamation coach, award-winning speaker, author and restorative justice advocate. I am also a lesbian, sparkle-loving, Jewish feminist and trailblazer. I made history in the justice system when my sexual assault case became the 1st in North America to conclude with restorative justice through the courts (Click here for resources & education on the roots of RJ). Since then, I have coached hundreds of women and non-binary folk in reclaiming sensuality and embodied leadership.
I've shared my voice via Forbes, Huff Post,Buzzfeed, Mel Robbins Show, Recovering from Reality podcast with Alexis Haines, and more. You can find all of my press and media coverage listed here. As a speaker, I have presented/consulted for for the US Military Sexual Assault Response Team, on an elite panel for the National Action Plan to End Gender-Based Violence, Fordham School of Law and more. Currently, my story is being made into a documentary and pitched as a scripted series. Keep scrolling to learn more about my work and my story...

I want to be real with you...
My path of sensuality has not been easy. Throughout my life I struggled with disordered eating, internalized homophobia & deep shame after sexual abuse. TBH, I felt lost within this patriarchal mess.
I was a chronic people pleaser & was quick to sacrifice my boundaries and needs.
It wasn't until I experienced rape in 2016 that I dove DEEP into my reclamation. I travelled all over the world studying different healing modalities & eventually, I faced my demons in an 8-hour circle with my assailant. Now I am PROUD to have overcame this pain through reclamation! Events that were once reminders of my deepest wounds... now feel like symbols of my resilience.
Now, I am living in more joyful sensual expression and self-love than ever before. I am grateful everyday to live as a coach, speaker, advocate and proud lesbian woman. My biggest passion in life is to support women and non-binary folk claim this level of empowerment.Learn more about my Group Coaching Program the Sensual Wholeness Academy

Poetry & facilitated discussion questions on survival after sexual assault
"The amount of shame & self-hatred I was able to dissolve from working with Marlee was huge. I have a more loving relationship with my body, a better understanding of who I am. After years of sexual trauma & continued patterns of unhealthy partnership - I finally feel and understand my worth. It's so beautiful."
"In my life I struggled a lot to love and accept my body. Through just a few months working with Marlee, I was able to claim that I am good enough no matter what. I know that my worth is unquestionable now. Now, I love myself and my body more than ever before - it's so amazing that I finally get to feel this."
