I am a midwife for the journey of coming Home. Throughout life’s seasons, I provide warm companionship, compassion, and discernment. My work fosters resilience, and supports organic transformation in alignment with your goals, needs, and dreams.
At heart, we are free. Grounding in this field of grace, we can learn to embody our experience with natural wakefulness, clarity, and flow. As your collaborator, I welcome you with gentle, open inquiry, attuned dialogue, and skilled touch. This integrative approach can naturally soothe conditioned patterns and support your fullness and liberation.
I’ve been fortunate to study with many gifted teachers of spirituality, neuroscience, psychology, and somatic awareness. I earned a PhD in somatic psychology in 1988, and have coached students in embodied awakening since 2001 through Waking Down in Mutuality and Trillium Awakening. I helped launch The Institute of Awakened Mutuality, and am trained in Somatic Experiencing®,the NeuroAffective Relational Model™, and NeuroAffective Touch™. 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 trained extensively in Holacracy, was a partner at HolacracyOne for three years, and helped introduce that system to many purpose-driven organizations.
If you resonate with what you find here, it would be my honor to connect and explore potential next steps. I offer in-person private sessions in Marin County, and video/phone sessions worldwide. To schedule a complimentary 15-minute video visit, please contact me. You’re also welcome to gaze with me.

The information and experiences I offer are in no way a substitute for diagnosis, advice, and/or treatment by a medical or mental health professional or counselor.
