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.
I’ve been fortunate to study with gifted teachers of spirituality, neuroscience, psychology, and somatic awareness, and I aspire to offer the heartfelt welcome and integrative support they’ve extended to me. Sharing my gifts in service is an honor, and I feel privileged to hold transformational space for those drawn to my approach.
I 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.
