I am here to help you explore the terrain of your mind-body-soul connection as we address the wounds and challenges you face. Through Somatic Experiencing® combined with a Jungian-oriented approach I will guide your awareness into your sensing body and emotional realms because within our symptoms is the language of our psyche beckoning to be heard, integrated, and restored. This is central to a richly embodied soul life filled with meaning, purpose, and wisdom.
Our symptoms lead us on a journey of exploration that helps us communicate with the parts of ourselves we often bypass. Modern life and even spiritual practices often take people away from the vital depths, the nether regions of ourselves that hold the keys to healing.
I honor, attune, and attend to the unique unfoldment of your own innate healing intelligence, and allow the therapy to emerge through a combination of dialogue, Somatic Experiencing®, Jungian dream analysis, active imagination, and breathwork. These approaches catalyze the body’s energies and the unconscious perspectives that need to be integrated in order to move us towards transformation, growth, and healing.
My work is informed by a 45-year odyssey through many psychospiritual, healing and wisdom traditions, trainings, and certifications including being a teacher of Transcendental Meditation® for four decades. I had the unique opportunity to be a personal client of Dr. Peter Levine and receive his mentorship for over a decade as well as to assist him in master classes.
I work with a variety of ages and concerns specializing in: trauma resolution, grief and loss, end-of-life issues, anxiety and depression, the mid-life journey, and dark night of the soul initiations. I also host integration of non-ordinary states of consciousness and spiritual emergence.
In addition, for over three decades I have been teaching and mentoring parents in a humanistic parenting style that teaches and supports parents in understanding the neurobiological basis of children’s emotions, the importance of closeness and connection, discipline without punishments or rewards, and play therapy to help children heal from stress and trauma.
