Are you longing for a greater sense Ease? Ever feel like life shouldn't be quite so stressful? Are you hoping for a better way? . . . . . If so, Somatic Experiencing® may offer you a refreshing difference. . . . . . . With the best of intentions, most of us meticulously monitor our troubling symptoms: feelings of unease, anxiety, scary feelings in the body, perhaps a sense of paralysis or conversely, feeling driven. . . . . . These stressful signals can dominate our lives and make it difficult for something new to happen . . . like Ease. . . . . Supporting you with my skills and experience, I can help you gently inquire into your bodily experience in the here and now.

And that’s when things can began to shift. . . . . What may have felt stuck and inevitable, when tracked as a process, starts to change. Anxiety and depression start to show up as the signals our biology is creating to solve a problem -- not condemn us to misery. Even anxiety and depression have a beginning, middle and end, as any cycle or process on Earth demonstrates. . . . . Tracking these processes allows them to the complete, so they can let go of us. And what's next? . . . . . A little bit more Ease. An enjoyable exhale. A sense of possibility.

Empowerment begins to replace powerlessness. The hopelessness of being "too traumatized" to have a good life begins to dissipate. . . . . And you may begin the journey to feeling more alive, more like yourself, "all in one piece" as clients have reported. . . . . all in a gentle and Easeful process where you feeling supported to come back to yourself.
