WHAT IS SOMATIC COACHING
" I am a commitment to healing shame and trauma for the sake of embodied joy and liberation."
As we learn more about the life of our body and what it stores as memories, emotions, moods, and historical narratives, we can build awareness of our lived experiences. Through somatic coaching we increase our awareness to then bring more intentional action. We set centered boundaries, make more centered requests and are more at choice with the actions we take in our lives.
For those who seek lasting change, aspire to act from a place that is more aligned to what you care about and are open to recognizing patterns keeping you from making effective change.. somatic coaching can be a supportive path towards embodying transformation.
I am a certified somatic coach through the Strozzi Institute, and have been in the health and wellness realm for over 25 years. I bring an embodied understanding of the social context that shapes each and everyone of us, honoring and recognizing systems of privilege, oppression and inequity.
