Today, she remains dedicated to working with individuals and couples who wish to lead self-actualised and pleasure-filled lives.

Martha works with individuals and couples in private coaching sessions, and conducts her own workshops. She takes prides in making sure all her workshops are also fun, educational, and sex-positive.
