you are not alone somatic counselor

What is A Session Like?

I'll facilitate a kind, creative space for you to befriend yourself and learn to listen to your body's inner wisdom. Our time together is a collaborative experiment.

A session is usually 55 min long, and will include conversation, trying out different somatic practices together, and exploring mindfulness or awareness-based exercises. Sometimes we use breath work or energy work to access deeper levels of experience and deeper potentials for change. Sometimes we work with internal family systems. Sometimes we bring art and writing into the room. Depending on your body's abilities and needs, we may sit, stand, lie down, or walk - inside or out in my garden. In the process, the past will reveal itself when it's relevant, and the exercises we do will teach us more about the stories and dreams you carry inside.

Logistics and Details:

my-office-compressed

I see individual clients in my home office in Santa Fe, and online via Skype. Check out my classes and workshops page for more info about group offerings.

My rate for new clients is $100 for individuals and $110 for couples, with some sliding-scale slots available for folks with limited income. I ask for payment at the time of sessions.

A Few Notes on Accessibility:

Unfortunately, my office is not wheelchair accessible. It is on the ground floor, and requires navigating 1 step. If this is not workable for you, I also offer sessions by Skype. I ask local clients to be as close to fragrance-free as possible, due to my own chemical sensitivities, and those of my friends and clients. For more information about environmental illness and how to be fragrance free, check out this resource from the East Bay Meditation Center.
