I am not meant for it.

I am beyond polarities.

I am harmony."

A Deeper Look at Areas of Expertise

Areas of expertise include curated modalities for those seeking more than relief from stress and trauma. Somatic Counseling Psychology focuses on experiences and practices to support a safe connection to your trauma and healing. Modalities include: Body Dialogue, Sound Therapy, Guided Chakra Journey.

Somatic Counseling Psychology & Coaching

The Somatic way offers pathways toward activating awareness, connection, expression, harmony, and healing deep within you. Through the body (or bottom-up) rather than trying to think your way through healing your past and present.

The somatic way invites you to connect with your body and every stage and layer of your developmental and environmental experiences.

Embodied Soul Journey

This guided practice integrates Kundalini Yoga, Breath Science, Meditation and Metaphysical elements, such as: sacred geometry, sound therapy, crystals. All vibrations that contribute to creating a  harmonic state for your body~mind~soul.

This practice focuses on teaching unification and harmony. Finding your way to oneness as you learn to connect with who you are, feeling certainty and support, then moving through the world from there.

Centered Separation for Couples

What I want more than anything is for the process of divorce to be simple and less painful for you both.

 

I want you to have an easier time than most couples. I want you to have a chance to create a new life sooner rather than later.

One way to experience that is to bring compassionate awareness to your ending. I can support you with separating from each other on an emotional level.

Part of this process includes developing new ways of focusing on your inner work as individuals. New perspectives and practices to move forward in a healthy conscious way.

These sessions include 1:1 work and couples sessions. The combination allows for you to be heard as individuals and as a separating couple.

My Approach

My first step onto my healing and spiritual path was in 2005 while practicing Kundalini Yoga.  I became a teacher to further understand what it was I experienced every time I did this magic yoga.  What was it that moved me to tears and inspired so much self love and compassion?

It was the dynamic body movements. It was the sound vibration of mantra and gong. That exchange of inner world and outer world and the realization that there is no separation. It was the release of grief!

 

Through much study and experience, I have discovered that my Soul is embodied here to experience my life path alone and together, and to expand beyond limitations. I have given myself the opportunity to weave a new narrative about myself and life and I can offer the same to you.

My Soul desired more healing, more experiences, more exploration of this Body, Soul, Spirit connection so in 2014 I ended up getting my Master’s in Somatic Counseling Psychology.  That year also offered a dramatic milestone experience.  My third marriage ended.  That massive change gave me the opportunity to dive deeper into exploring my life and how I actually felt about myself.  Through therapy, mother nature, writing, art, Kundalini, movement, meditation, and other metaphysical modalities, I discovered so much about myself and started to truly hold myself in compassion rather than judgment.

While I always specialize in separation or divorce, many life experiences can cause separation from who you really are. So, our work together is around exploring and practicing ways for you to experience the oneness and wholeness of yourself and life.

 

The tools and approaches I work with will provide you with creative structure to heal, move obstacles and keep discovering who you are with compassion.
