Somatic Psychotherapy and Mindful Bodywork: Tools for living
Your Ally in Body-Mind Wellness
▸ Feeling stressed or stuck?
▸ Want change?
▸ I would like to help you.
When difficulties feel too much to handle on your own or with your existing support network, or when the next level of growth seems just out of reach, you may find yourself living with stress.
Stress may challenge your health, emotions and thoughts and leave you out of touch with joy and happiness. Relationships with yourself and others can become difficult too.
Through Somatic Psychotherapy or Mindful Bodywork I can help you get centered and gain perspective in body and mind. As your ally in holistic healing, I offer a supportive, warm presence so you can explore your difficulties and feel heard. I'll help you discover (or rediscover) your strengths. I can also help you gain simple yet powerful mind/body tools--at your own pace.
I'd like to help you get back in touch with the joys of being alive.

Why Choose a Holistic Approach?
Your stress response affects all your body systems. Yet many people under stress feel disconnected from their bodies until they start to feel some form of pain or discomfort. Therapies that don't include connecting with the body are missing out!
A highly trained practitioner in body-mind and holistic approaches, I offer Somatic Psychotherapy and Mindful Bodywork. I'll help you reconnect with yourself and explore your physical, mental and emotional responses to what's hard in life, so you can get help where you need it.
