Hello! Call me Treasure or Trevor (They/Them).
I am passionate about connection, learning and play. I fill my life with opportunities to discover new things with people I care about.
I am curious. I love learning about the world, and our place in it. I am fascinated by people. Our ways of thinking and feeling and moving and relating and being make each one of us unique.
I am a mover. My greatest passions all involve physicality in partnership: dance, partner acrobatics, acroyoga, contact improvisation, massage, games, wrestling, cuddling, singing in groups…
I am a social being. Sharing these physical connections with my communities brings me great joy.
My life’s purpose is to help people learn to connect better and lead better lives. My background in movement and business and engineering, and my passion for connection have positioned me perfectly to create Embrace Connections and offer a range of solutions to help people connect better.
Why Embrace Connections?
People are aching for better connections. To find their people, and develop relationshps. To be in more secure relationships. To feel happier.
The world needs people to relate better. We need to care more about each other. Collaborate and communicate better. We are all fundamentally on the same side.
I know that touch, movement and the somatic experience are powerful tools for understanding ourselves and connecting with others. Physicality and nonverbal communication can help us reach greater depth and insight than words alone.
By helping people connect better, they will live happier lives and achieve better outcomes. Through this work, I am able to achieve my ultimate goal to make the world a better place.

Diversity and Inclusion
I am delighted to work with all people without prejudice. This includes people of any ethnicity, cultural background, class, age, sex, gender, sexual orientation, relationship structure, body type, physical ability, neurodiversity etc.
I am sex-positive, a queer ally, poly-informed, and kink-informed.
If cost is an obstacle, let’s have a conversation. I have low-cost sessions available every week.
I am not a trained counselor, psychotherapist or medical practitioner. I am working to become trauma-informed. We must take care about approaching certain issues and conditions. If you have trauma and triggers, we can collaborate to work with/around them. Sometimes, I will refer you to more suitable services instead.
My personal growth journey was accelerated by a few consent and communication issues in my past. These drove me to significant attitude and behavioural changes through learning and self-work. I take responsibility for my actions. A part of my journey forward is through Embrace, to share the lessons I have learned so far and help prevent or support similar issues.
