body & mindfulness based coaching for health, connection, and nervous system regulation.
As we tune into to the wisdom of the physical, emotional, and energetic parts of ourself, we begin to release unconscious patterns and trapped tension that can be the root causes of our many of our challenges. We may begin to see relief from chronic pain and health issues, healing of old injuries, discover a greater sense of calm and clarity, rediscover joy and pleasure, increase in creative inspiration, and notice our relationships become smoother, more playful, and our boundaries clearer and easier to maintain.
Building Safety, Resource, and Self Trust
By slowly bringing our awareness into our body we begin building a sense of inner safety, and increase our capacity to experience more emotional range, resiliency and responsibility. Tuning into our sensations, we learn self-regulation, regain self-trust and rebuild the relationship with ourself by coming into greater connection with our body, emotions and desires, with acceptance and non-judgment. We can release stored tension, welcome in greater flow, coherence, pleasure, and love, and allow the hurt, sorrow, anger to be more gracefully and lovingly felt.
Relationships are the foundation of life. As infants and children, the way we were nurtured influences our styles of attachment which we bring into our adult relationships. Through somatic practices and supportive connections with others, ie. practitioners, friends, and loved ones, we can begin to feel more calm, secure and stable in life and within ourself. Our ability to release shame, guilt and blame, and take on more personal responsibility and autonomy, and connect with others in healthy ways, naturally increases. We know empathy. We know our boundaries. We know what we will and won't tolerate. We know how valued and worthy we are of love, joy, and acceptance.
Through a combination of mindfulness, energetic, and somatic (body-centered) practices, it is my goal to help guide you towards greater health, empowerment, and connection with self and others. These techniques help calm the nervous system allowing tension and emotion from held experiences to release. The body, heart, and mind find their way back to coherence and return to the abundance of Source Energy that runs through us. Liberation comes from having the courage to face our shadow, redefining and reclaiming our past, and finding the clarity and confidence to move forward with empowered choices.
Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) help ground our emotional experience in our bodies, and use this physical sensation as a trailhead to explore the deeper origins of our most challenging unconscious patterns. As a trained IFS and EFT practitioner, I help guide you into the shadows and discover the beauty, wisdom, and liberation that lies within you.
IFS & EFT
Our bodies have the wisdom to guide us toward healing. Craniosacral Therapy and TRE® (Trauma Releasing Exercises) help gently release stored trauma and tension, teach self-regulation and co-regulation, and bring the nervous system back to a place of ease and calm. Through this body-centered approach, the body's natural ability to heal many physical, mental and emotional patterns is restored.
Intuitive Energy Work and Astrology
The mysteries of life encourage us to discover solutions to our obstacles with creative inquiry, compassion, and patience. The Universe wants us to be living a life of abundance and joy. Through building inner resource, presencing, and witnessing of the body's unseen energies, we can begin to affect our outer experience by reorganizing our energetic landscape.
