Are you finding the challenges of life overwhelming? Do you feel stuck, unable to move forward in any direction? Are you experiencing conflict in your relationships? Are you finding it difficult to manage work, relationship, kids, parents? Know that you are not alone, and that reaching out for help is an act of courage.

Women are under increasing stress in today’s world. Some women are doing full time caretaking , some have full-time careers, and others juggle some combination of both. Many of us have painful and/or traumatic life histories that can compound the everyday stresses to which we are all subject. In order to heal, and remember our innate aliveness and to experience the fullness of life, we need to remain attuned to our deepest needs and desires. We need to actively seek simplicity and balance in our lives.

There are many practices that can support us in our quest for living a life of vitality and contentment. Sometimes individual work is appropriate while at other times participating in a like-intentioned community is exactly what we need. To this end, I offer three different approaches that may be experienced individually or in groups: body-oriented psychotherapy, life coaching, and yoga. I see these different modalities as different access points for discovering our innate wellness.

Yoga starts with exploring the physical body. Body-oriented psychotherapy starts with exploring our emotional states, and life coaching starts with exploring our minds, specifically our goals/intentions and limiting beliefs. My approach is holistic in nature, meaning that in a session or class you will explore all of these realms- physical, emotional, and mental. No matter what the access point, our goal is the same, to discover what is blocking your experience of your true nature of peace and contentment.

Body-Oriented Psychotherapy

Body-oriented psychotherapy can be particularly helpful for clients who have experienced trauma and currently experience anxiety or depression.
