The purpose of my work is to help enhance the connection between body and spirit. I believe that the fullest expression of our selves is deeply intertwined with our awareness and understanding of our own and each other’s bodies.
Touching, being touched, dancing, sounding and emoting are ways that we find embodiment.
Sadly, these ways of experiencing play and passion are often overlooked in our life scheme of working, householding, caring for family members and entertaining ourselves.
I am here to help those who wish to ease their anxiety and rigidity through re-learning and adopting a renewed relationship to their body.
A tarot reader and shamanic practitioner for over 20 years, I am trained in Thai massage, relaxation bodywork, yoga, meditation and Somatic Sex Education. I offer a combination of all these skills to my work, which most often involves hands-on touch.
Aside from my work in touch healing and spiritual guidance, I love being a creative artist & musician, and I spend a lot of time outside walking, beach combing, and camping.
In my work I help you explore and connect with your Self through the body. This may be for the purpose of healing and releasing trauma, learning to experience and access embodiment, or to assist you in connecting with and engaging fully with yourself, a partner, or your life purpose.
Connect more deeply to Self, your community, and with your life purpose.
Working together through personal coaching, bodywork, counselling and somatic exercises, my wish is to assist you in living a rich, joyful, purposeful and embodied life!
For more than 25 years, I have been exploring the power of somatics and touch therapies. I began my journey by studying and practice a form of peer counselling in 1985. In 1994, I completed my training in Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, a somatic therapy that combined yoga and body-mind psychotherapy. A few years later, I studied several forms of massage and bodywork in San Francisco where I lived and practiced for 6 years. In 2016, I completed my training as a Somatic Sex Educator.
Along with running a community wellness clinic, I spend time in Nature, cycling, playing guitar and caring for my family.
