Do you feel at home in your body?

Experiences of extreme stress, life transitions, loss, illness or chronic pain, abuse and oppression can leave you feeling like your body is an incomprehensible (or scary) stranger.

You may be caught in repetitive behavior patterns, even though you “know better.”

No matter how entrenched your habits are, or how hopeless things may feel, your body has the agency and intelligence to create new ways of being. I am here to teach you how to communicate and collaborate with your wise body.

What is Somatic and Intuitive Coaching?

Somatic and Intuitive Coaching is my synthesis of over 35 years of studying body-mind-spirit approaches to learning and healing. A typical hour-long session may include educational or goal-setting conversations, somatic and intuitive bodywork (where you sit or lie down on a bodywork table), standing or walking practices for rehearsing new responses to familiar situations, and guided sensory awareness or mindfulness practices. Your goals guide the overall direction of our work together, which incorporates whatever is unfolding in the moment. You and I will collaborate to give your body experiences that decrease helplessness and reactivity, and increase your sense of safety, self-trust, and agency, enabling you to co-create the life you want.
