Kara Oh. "When I say, “It’s all about YOU,” I mean that. Everything I do is about helping women just like you realize more happiness, joy, love, and peace of mind. I used to say I teach women how to love. But that isn’t really accurate. Women already know how to love. What I actually do is teach women how to remove the blocks and barriers that keep them from experiencing the love they desire."

Each of those aspects helps define me but just like you, there’s so much more to me that is irreverent and quirky (Ok, maybe not as quirky as Zooey Deschanel, but still). I enjoy a good cocktail, bawdy humor, creative ways in which to live life, meditation, yoga and surfing, hugs and “I love yous” from my two small daughters and having a fantastic session in the sack with my hot, fantastic husband.
