My name is Kristin Casey but everyone calls me KC. I’ve spent most of my life in Southern California and Central Texas (with a few years of globetrotting wanderlust in my 20s). I attended the University of Texas at Austin, however am mostly self-educated, driven by passionate curiosity about human nature in the areas of sexuality, psychology, and spirituality.
I've been an IPSA-Supervised Surrogate Partner Intern since June of 2016. Previous to that, I worked in related fields of physical and emotional intimacy for 20 of the past 30 years. Currently in my 40s, I'm single, and self-employed as an intimacy coach and writer, with numerous published articles, essays, and short stories on topics of intimacy, identity, sexuality, and dependency.
My approach as a Surrogate Partner is one of respect, compassion, patience, and openness. I’m not afraid of intense emotions and I like complicated people. I have a nonjudgmental, emotionally generous nature and I understand people intuitively—I feel what they feel and sense their needs empathically. I’m told I have a gift for making people feel good about themselves, but it's really a gift for seeing people clearly. I zero in on a person’s best qualities, then help them see those qualities in themselves. I offer a safe space and loving heart for clients to be their most authentic self, accepted and appreciated for who they really are.
I believe intimacy makes life worth living and isolation can be a form of torture.
For many years I struggled to accept and express my authentic self. I am familiar with the pain of emotional isolation, and the fear and anxiety around emotional vulnerability. The self-acceptance and serenity I’ve found are partly due to wise mentors who made this journey before me. They didn’t just hand me a map; they walked beside me and illuminated the way. I have great compassion for others on that path and it’s an honor to be of service in their healing.
