I offer an integrated approach to improving life in your body using Somatic Experiencing® and Massage Therapy. I help passionate performers deepen their sense of home within their bodies. You'll find the space and self-trust to be with challenging emotions, physical pain, resolve cycles of burnout, and learn to care for your body without treating it as a project to be fixed.
Somatic Experiencing® is a therapeutic approach that focuses on resolving the physical and emotional effects of stressful and overwhelming experiences. It emphasizes the importance of recognizing and releasing bodily tension and nervous system dysregulation. SE therapists help individuals become more aware of their bodily sensations and guide them in completing interrupted self-protective responses, with the goal of restoring a sense of well-being and resilience.
"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
you touch everything."
- Lao Tzu
You're in the right place if...
You’re in the right place if
you experience chronic physical pain
you cycle in and out of burnout cycles
you continue to feel limited by past events despite having addressed them intellectually
you want to create a sense of safety within yourself without bypassing the reality of the world around us
you want to expand your capacity to be with challenging emotions
you want guidance in how to care for your body without treating it as a project to be fixed
You’re especially in the right place if
you're a performer or someone who values or practices body awareness in their work
you value working with someone who is abolitionist, antiracist, and queer
you are looking for someone competent and caring as you prepare for or recover from gender affirming procedures
