About

Do you have anxiety or conflicting feelings about touch? Do you experience chronic stress? Talking about problems is certainly important, and sometimes words are not enough. Science says we need 8-12 hugs per day for optimal health and many experts have observed that "trauma lives in the body", so you could be triggered by the very thing you need for your healing and well-being. By combining talk and therapeutic touch, my integrated experiential coaching provides a safe space for you to "unpack" and process what's been haunting you, to help you to recover so you can redirect that energy toward living a happier, more satisfying life.
Research has proven that positive experiences help to heal negative ones. Sometimes a simple hug can have the same healing effect as hours of talking. My approach is especially effective for reducing/resolving leftover shame, anxiety, numbing and other effects of abuse or relational traumas, and can help make your body a more comfortable place to inhabit.
Touch can be a short-cut to accessing your past experience and resolving the "unfinished business" that accompanies it. I can help you with many issues related to touch or body experience. And if you're already in therapy and feeling stuck, I can provide focused therapeutic experiences in tandem with your ongoing psychotherapy to help you get back on track.
