Throughout life’s seasons, I provide warm companionship to fellow travelers. My input is seasoned with compassion and discrimination, and oriented to foster resilience while making a palpable difference.

At heart, we are free. Grounding in this field of grace, and meeting experience with somatic awakeness and cognitive clarity, is my offering. I welcome you into gentle, open inquiry that reshapes identity and patterns in natural, easeful ways.

earned a PhD in somatic psychology in 1988, and have coached students in embodied awakening for many years. I helped launch The Institute of Awakened Mutuality, and am certified in Somatic Experiencing® and the NeuroAffective Relational Model™. I co-founded a trauma resolution clinic at a California homeless shelter, and assisted survivors of natural and human disasters in India through Trauma Vidya and Lotus Circle International. I’ve also served as a Holacracy Practitioner, and helped introduce that system to many purpose-driven organizations.
