Somatic Coaching/Counseling

Shifting old patterns, creating new possibilities. 

Somatic coaching and counseling use 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, as well as to heal and to transform the impact of trauma, oppression, and emotional distress at the level of the body.

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

Somatics 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 queer and trans clients, yet my practice is open to all.

What do you want to let go of?

​Somatic Bodywork

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.

Massage Therapy 

I offer a mix of modalities including deep (connective) tissue massage, relaxation massage, and CranioSacral. 

Through Somatic Bodywork and Massage Therapy are two separate modalities, we can makes space to address emotional tension as it arises if you want to.
