Somatics for Climate Resilience

I am a somatic educator and trauma coach who works over Zoom video and along the West Coast of North America.

I am here to help you Befriend Your Body, welcome your contradictions, access your resilience and turn your visions for climate justice, climate adaptation and mutual aid communities into reality.

My Somatic and Intuitive coaching work integrates over 35 years of training in healing modalities, including generative somatics, intuitive reading, energy medicine, somatic bodywork, neurodivergent wisdom, personal and social trauma healing, social justice practice and Nyingma Buddhism.

More about my approach:

You might call me a body-whisperer. I specialize in helping people understand and collaborate with their bodies for personal healing and social transformation.

I believe that bodies are wise and trustworthy. The body is always trying to take care of us and our loved ones. But sometimes the body’s worldview becomes stuck in the past, when we had fewer options than we do now. 

Using educational conversations, bodywork, movement practices and guided sensory awareness, you and I collaborate to give your body experiences that decrease helplessness and reactivity, and increase your sense of safety, self-trust, and agency.

Healing trauma involves unwinding contractions and restoring fluidity to the body so that energy and emotions can move through us with ease. Unwinding is liberating, but can be uncomfortable. 

As your somatic ally and guide, I stay with you as you learn, little by little, to tolerate what scares you.

I have a wealth of tools to help you face your discomfort with increasing confidence. 

I am here to cheer you on as you gradually reclaim your birthright of aliveness, resilience and creativity.
