I am an insatiable learner. Each session is a learning for me and my clients, since our work is always collaborative.
I am a certified body-centered psychotherapist, certified hypnotherapist, enneagram teacher, international workshop designer and facilitator, Reiki master, artist, writer, actress, director, personal development coach, interior designer and so on. It is my intention to bring all these skills together in unique encounters of waking up, managing stress, anxiety, depression, chronic pain and dis-ease and the many challenges and opportunities of life. We develop self-empowerment, deep awareness skills and self-love.
Together we reveal the unseen with curiosity and acceptance. We hear the unheard with compassion. We speak the unspoken in courageous honesty. We find insight and bring it out in the open in safety. Our bodies are the portal to this seeing.
We manifest the not yet manifested. We laugh together lightly, sometimes outrageously, at the absurd moments of our humanity. Our work is accessible, experiential and non-academic. The goal is to take away valuable techniques for self-direction and healing on all levels.
I began my career journey as a professional actor, director, (in theatre, film, and commercials) acting teacher, and writer. I was always interested helping my acting students work with performance anxiety, rejection, and their authentic presence. I thought that to enhance my work with the artistic community I would train as a body-centered psychotherapist since the body never lies. From there I trained in numerous modalities to get at the many doorways to healing and my practice took off to include everyone, no matter their unique hero's journey.
Each client I begin to work with fills out an intake form, prior to our session, with deep and interesting questions that drive to the heart of why they are reaching out to me and the work they wish to pursue. They also take a free online Enneagram test.
So because I use a myriad of healing modalities each first session will look different.
Here is a short video about what a session might look like.
Also here is a link to my client appreciation page which will show the diverse clients I see and the impact of our work on them.
Since I use a wide variety of holistic modalities the only thing I can say generally is that our bodies, minds, heart and spirit are all connected. Go through one doorway we meet up with the whole self.
