1:1 Sessions & Groups
Embodied Therapy ,
Coaching, & Meditation
Most 1:1 and group sessions include all three of these techniques. There is no "right" way to receive a session, and you might want to think of participating in this unique style as "practice." I'll guide you to pay attention to yourself moment-to-moment, to context and apply what you learn beyond your sessions, and how this practice supports healing, removing barriers, accomplishing goals, and being empowered.
I will never diagnose or prescribe, though I may recommend or suggest other practices or therapeutic practices.
Receiving Coaching is an inspired response to the desire for lasting change. It's a courageous commitment to yourself. You want to leave your job and start your own business, go back to school, end a relationship, or move across the country? I ask for an 8-week commitment from you in order to jumpstart the life you desire. In 8-weeks, I will teach you how to navigate the changes you desire through experiences of Body-Mindfulness, Awareness, Acceptance, Choice, Discernment, Truth, Truth-in-Action, and Flow. Coaching is tailored to your specific desired life enhancements, and includes weekly 75-minute 1:1 Coaching sessions, daily home practice designed specifically for you, and e-mail correspondence and support as needed.
Groups are held intermittently for 4-8 weeks, utilize a variety of techniques including, but not limited to: Embodied Therapy, Coaching, Meditation, and Integrative Arts. Groups are designed to serve a variety of populations. Some recent groups include: Surviving Crisis & Trauma, Body Love, Need for Silence and Stillness, and Parenting Tricky Kids. If you'd like to see your situation or need addressed in a group, let's discuss.
Healing and Expressive Arts serve as a wordless means to let one speak the truth of what they see, feel, think, and experience. I use Art in my practice as a means to express that which may need to remain wordless, as meditation, and as part of what I call Integration. My clients generally find this to be a valuable tool to be used in session and outside of session.
As a parent and step-parent, I understand the need for support. As a professional who has supported families in many capacities, I get it. Do you have a "tricky kid" who learns or expresses different than the "social norm," has experienced trauma, or struggles in other ways? I am here to support you and your family. It is painful to witness the suffering of our children, and the techniques I use help to develop increased compassion for yourself as the parent and for your child. I offer concepts that I like to refer to as "parenting from the heart," even on extremely trying days. If this sounds like you, I'm here to support you on your parenting journey.
Learning to be mindful of your self, your body, your thoughts, and your emotions can help you navigate the difficulties that come with adolescence, and can assist you in regulating your responses in social, home, or school settings. If you have experienced trauma or crises, learn differently, get teased and judged for who you are, and maybe even feel shut-down, I can help you learn new ways to relate to yourself and the world and people around you.
