practicing the embodiment we need
to create the world we want
Shifting old patterns, creating new possibilities.
Somatic Coaching involves a combination of somatic awareness practices, bodywork, and conversation to help you feel into your longing, identify what is holding you back, and build the capacity to move towards your desires and become who you want to be.
Somatics allows us to bring habitual, non-conscious ways of being into conscious awareness in order to heal and shift old stories that live deep in the tissues. Using the body as a site of practice, we can re-build capacities for trust, connection, embodied boundaries, etc., and live more fully aligned with our desires, dreams, and values.
We will work together with your body’s wisdom to help you:
Recognize how social conditions and life experiences have shaped your sense of self and world
Become more attuned to your sensations, desires, and inherent resilience
Heal from the impact of trauma and oppression
Re-build an internal sense of safety, boundaries, and trust
Grow capacity for mutual connection
Connect to a sense of purpose
Build the embodied skills you need to move toward your desires and goals

Somatic Coaching is a process of working with the body to heal and transform habits and patterns that are getting in the way of your longings, and support you to build the skills necessary to embody who you want to be in the world.
I specialize in working with those impacted by trauma, as well as with queer and trans clients, yet my practice is open to all.
Somatic bodywork is a gentle and effective approach for healing long-held emotional tension patterns by loosening
restrictions in the nervous system and shifting embodied narratives that live in the muscles and tissues.
Queer and Trans Embodiment
Coaching, support, and workshops for the queer and trans community.

What do you want to let go of?
We are shaped by our life experiences. Literally. Maybe we habitually make ourselves small to take up less space or puff ourselves up to prove something. Shoulders contract upward in fear and can become heavy with burden and despair. Over time, through repetition, these patterns shape our muscles. Through somatic bodywork we will explore these types of embodied patterns at the muscular-emotional level, and support you to invite awareness, breath, and life back into all the parts our yourself.
The bodywork I practice is mostly informed by the lineage of generative somatics and the Strozzi Institute. I also incorporate other somatic methodologies including CranioSacral, Rosen Method, Polarity, and Bioenergetics.
I also offer trauma-informed massage therapy. I view the body as whole system. I often find that restrictions and blockages in the nervous system are contributing to tight or sore muscles. To address the whole system and underlying causes, I use a mostly light-touch approach, combining CranioSacral and somatic techniques with Connective Deep Tissue and Swedish methods.
