I've Got a Lot to Share With You
I'm a pelvic health specialist, somatic counselor, and teacher. I have received all of the modalities I offer as services and it's been a wild ride. I've had a unique healing experience and have devoted much of my life, experience, and training to build connections between fields that are often disjointed but highly compatible (like bodywork and psychotherapy).
In this world today, we need holistic opportunities for integration and wholeness. We need to find our most natural inherent rhythm. For me, this has been deep and very challenging at times. This journey requires support.
I have been steeped in over 14 years of intensive training, my own self-inquiry work, endless study, client care, and have seen the combination of specialized tools deliver transformation unique to each person and their path. My time is shared between my counseling work and pelvic health work. I offer pelvic health programs as well as somatic counseling and Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy. Please inquire to discuss working together.
The Extremes of Pelvic Health
Unfortunately, the pelvic health and mental health fields function on extremes. I have deep respect for healthcare workers and never want to smash any field. However, many clients come to this work needing a different level of care, emotional permission, and trauma-informed care. Many clients need something different than what they’ve experienced in the allopathic / physical therapy / gynecology / birthing world / talk therapy / western psychology world and infertility treatment fields.
The other extreme is well-intentioned healers who know the body is an intelligent conduit and believe in sacred feminine healing work, but might not have the training or skills necessary to provide safety, clarity, and a grounded experience. There are also practitioners who claim medical care or medications are never needed, please know this work is not a replacement for medical care but can be a supportive ally to your healing process.
One of the most painful and unfortunate truths is the rate at which too many overtly or covertly abuse or neglect the reality of impact and leave women feeling invaded / confused / manipulated / abused. This can happen with spiritual practitioners, community leaders, shamans, bodyworkers, medical practitioners, family members, partners and spans across many types of relational experiences in explicit and subtle ways. Too many clients come toward me with these stories. Data around abuse doesn't lie and it's usually even more numbers because so much goes unreported. Most people I work with have some type of traumatic pelvic experience in their own story, in their family, or feel tapped into the collective truths in our heritage and cultures. Imprints of it all land in the body.
There are safe ways to address it. I do not believe these extremes above are effective or sustainable for any body. What I do believe is bodies ask for help in many ways and eventually, some start to listen.
I continually strive to offer something more balanced and nuanced than what I see in the extremes above. I work differently than practitioners that do ‘hard touch’ manipulative work that might feel too fast. I also work differently than healers where something might feel unclear or confusing. My work is slow, intentional, consensual, clear, explained ahead of time, and is always discussed directly and explicitly throughout the entire process. The feedback I continually receive from clients is that my style of transparency and open communication makes things simple and relieving. When there's no confusion, the body begins to understand and orient toward surrender and acceptance of nourishment and support.
My Service Style
In-person work with me is my highest and most sought level of service. My work includes extended time together, emotional permission, online learning and education, treatment planning / assessment & support with implementation, a true container, trauma-informed care, and more. Read more about the foundational building blocks of my work here.
My programs incorporate pelvic floor therapy, uterine & abdominal massage, visceral endocrine organ work, and always gives room for the psychological and neurological aspect of working with this area of the body (brain function is connected to nervous system function). I am deeply informed by science / anatomy / the reality of the body and also leave room for all that is magical about this process. I incorporate education, psychological, energetic and emotional process work in my counseling practice, but my bodywork practice is separate from counseling work. Please book a call. to discuss the differences. My main focus is working with the central nervous system, organ system, fascial system, and soft-tissue network. I am curious how all of these systems impact psychoneuroimmunology (the meeting points between the psyche, neurology, immune system, and endocrine hormonal system).
I believe my counseling training, navigation of boundaries, communication & clarity, and ability to hold emotional intensity is what provides clients with the safety necessary to engage in this work and experience physiological expansion and balancing.
My work requires commitment to a container. This offers the most powerful results for clients. Clients who work with me desire a fuller, deeper process. If you are seeking simple advice, we can engage in a consultation & treatment planning process. However, I believe the body does not appreciate rushing or pressure. I've never seen fast / high pressure work lead to lasting healing though at times there can be powerful big shifts after a few sessions of slower work. I have space for a small number of clients at one time. I offer retreats and intensive style work and always require thorough consultation and relationship building first.
Humor is a big part of our process!
Transformation can at times be be heavy and hard. Once that lifts (and it always does) this process is nourishing, loving, and there is plenty of space for irreverence and laughter about the human experience. This work truly does allow for divine comedy in all its gifts.
My Personal and
My defining values are mutual respect, freedom, and self-authority. I believe all living beings (especially those with a central nervous system) have an incredible surge of life force inside them. The journey to discovering, allowing, accepting, having access to, harnessing, and deciding how to utilize this life force is a core human process.
I believe it is a privilege to have the resources and access to fully discover oneself. I also believe discovery of the full “self” in all its' facets is a lifelong journey. The guiding principles that have shaped my life and exploration of this include personal relationship to the force of life, integrity with that force, and capacity to truly witness oneself and another.
The revolution that I’m here to lead is all about the root.. The essence of pro-creation, physiological creativity, DNA fusion, fertility, legacy, pregnancy, birthing, family, continuation / disruption / colonization of lineage and cultural patterns, epigenetics (how inter-generational patterns impact DNA), sexuality, and intimacy are some of the most charged themes of humanity. These themes surround some of the deepest most primal human longings and are also what get abused during deep times of strife and collective power shifts. Opening the door to this work is one of the most powerful choices I've made in my life and I'm honored to support those on this path.
is to provide a space for the female body and soul to be liberated. To make choices from a clear & grounded center. I truly believe when a female body is rooted and in touch with their center, it shapes the world in profound ways.
