In our work together...

We will explore what works and feels right for you.  Resourcing the interoceptive benefits of Inner Relationship Focusing, somatic embodiment practices, and bodywork, we will nourish your awareness and build your capacity to feel more ease, joy, and empowerment in life.

 

With me as your personal ally, and coach, you will receive:

*Support and attention to your specific and unique needs.

*A safe and supportive space.

 *Active listening to your goals, strengths, quirks, and challenges.

*Reflection of your inner wisdom back to you.

*Help designing your path forward. 

*Guidance in attuning to connection with your body.

*Co-regulation with the natural flow and release of emotions. 

*Gentle invitations to see your experiences in a new light.

*New practices and perspectives to shift your status quo.

*Access to new ways to let go of inner turbulence with and through working with the body.

*A sometimes playful and humor-friendly approach to positive change. 

and

 *Tools to shift habits, and paradigms to support you living your best life!

 

Whether you are working with depression, anxiety, stress, health concerns, pain, relationship challenges, LGBTQI+ context, mindfulness, career satisfaction, life transitions, or seeking psychedelic preparation and integration, I'm here to help. We will work together so you can move forward with more alignment with how you want to show up in the world. 

 

 Given the multifaceted landscape of human experience with oppressive systems, late-stage capitalism, inequity, and social justice reform, I honor the diverse experiences of my clients. With respect to the varied ancestral histories, wisdom, beliefs, and orientations of my clients, I aim to acknowledge the broader context that effects your power and access to resources. I work to track my evolving awareness and center you as the expert on your own lived experience.  In order to make your sessions as relevant to you as possible, I make an intentional effort to refine my fluency and continue my education.

I completed my bachelor's degree with honors in Psychology at the University of California Santa Cruz, post-graduate education at Twin Lakes College of the Healing Arts, and training in Skills for Change coaching.  WIth certifications in Psychedelics and Somatics, and Somatic Attachment Therapy with The Embody Lab, and a life-long study for my own journey of self-development, I offer a wide spectrum of techniques to help you effectively recognize, explore, and nurture the different parts of yourself. 

 

Serving my community as a massage therapist and wellness educator in the Bay Area since 2001, I come to the table with deep gratitude for the diversity of experience and perspectives of my clients. Cultivating awareness of how our physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental well-being inter-relate, I offer a dynamic, holistic approach to working together in ways that nourish a felt sense of safety and self-trust.  

By creating a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental discovery space, I offer the opportunity for you to tap into your wise self-knowing and sources of personal power to elicit transformative and sustainable change in your life. We will work collaboratively to help you more effectively access your resources, consciousness, and creativity to inspire motivation.
