Weaving together Movement & Talk Therapy to Help You Thrive

Why I do what I do

I believe that healing is found at the intersection of our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being and is realized through both an individual and collective lens. I believe that being in right-relationship with ourselves, others, and the Earth is a necessary component of healing trauma and reclaiming our individual and shared liberation. Right-relationship is a concept rooted in the aligned equitable care for all and I hold this as truth in our therapeutic relationship.

Offerings

My work is about helping you reclaim your right to fully occupy and inhabit your body so that you may live life in a more deliberate and prolific way. My approach is founded in the belief that you are not separate from your environment, and it takes into account how society and oppressive systems impact your lived experience.

Applying a neurobiological approach allows us to understand how and why your symptoms are showing up; it invites us to attend to your pain and discomfort with a deeper level of compassion, and to recognize and harness your physical and psychological strengths.

Encircling the neurobiological perspective with a reverence for the abstract, mysterious, and sacred aspects of healing allows us to tap into the nonlinear characterisics of well-being and your intuitive capacities.

Together we will call upon a variety of skills and practices and weave them together to ensure you are receiving support in the way that works best for you. These practices may include: movement – task-oriented, guided, or free-form, symbolism and visualizations, Transforming Touch®, energetic support, and various talk/somatic therapy approaches.

Personal Offerings

Individual Therapy Sessions

My belief in a comprehensive approach has led to me to train as a psychotherapist, movement facilitator, energy worker, and as a Transforming Touch® practitioner. I have studied the neurobiological impacts of trauma and apply this knowledge in a nuanced and dynamic manner.

Relational Movement (all relationship types)

Are you looking for a more embodied way to explore your relational dynamics and learn deeper communication skills with your partner? This is not talk therapy; this is about being in your body while being in relationship and holding curiosity for what arises.
