Restoring wholeness and integrity
My base assumption is that there is a fundamental and powerful integrity within our bodies that we can bring to bear to organize our complexity so we can function as a unified and robust whole.
“What we attend to is magnified in our experience.”
My work brings forward the deep integrity of our biology to help untangle imbalances caused by a lifetime of accumulated stress and trauma behind physical, psychological, and emotional symptoms.
I apply my extensive training to calm the physiology of stress and trauma, whether directly through hands-on contact or through conversational exploration, to meet you where you are and facilitate your movement into a more fluid and coordinated engagement with life.
My training includes undergraduate and graduate work in biology and ecology, certification in the Feldenkrais Method® of movement education, certification and registration as a hypnotherapist, Generative Change coaching, a certificate in Somatic Experiencing® (SE), post-SE training in Touch Skills for Trauma Professionals and Somatic Resilience and Regulation for early and developmental trauma. I am also a trauma survivor, which has given me first-hand experience of difficulty and the path into feeling whole.
