My spiritual journey began more than 25 years ago through self-inquiry and a deep search for purpose and meaning for my very existence. For several years, I explored and practiced techniques including vipassana and Dhyan meditation (Zen). yoga, tai chi chuan, qigong, counselling, NLP, Gestalt Therapy, cranio-sacral Therapy, traditional Chinese as well as ayurvedic acupressure and Systemic Family Constellation. I have drawn in the essence of ancient wisdom from these practices and blended them with the modern-day holistic healing approaches. For over two decades, I have been teaching taiji quan and qigong and have integrated Somatic Experiencing into my practice. I work with sexuality, sexual abuse, and sexual trauma for all genders.
I assist Dr. Peter Levine in several trainings including the ‘Eye of The Needle’ Master classes.
In the SE sessions that I offer, I look to support the autonomy of the client in their journey to wellness and health. I encourage clients to be curious, explore, access, and ease their body through spontaneous movements.
When appropriate, I include healing sounds, self-touch, boundary and embodiment exercises to enable resilience and regulation, in a relationship based on safety, trust, respect, curiosity, openness, kindness, compassion, and acceptance.
I work with adults, adolescents, children and dogs, and it has been an amazing journey.
I am qualified as an SEP to provide personal sessions for credit at all levels (Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced levels). I am a case consult provider at the Beginning levels.
I work on a sliding scale, so reach out to me...
