My purpose is to provide a safe, practical, and effective opportunity for curious willing human beings to overcome limitations including trauma, physical, mental, and emotional disturbances. And address the dis-ease within oneself that can express as illness. By helping people and families discover their potential and the relationship between their mind, body, environment, and spirit.

The Autonomic Nervous System is the foreground for health and vitality or lack thereof. Responsible for all the functions offer bodies like breathing, digesting, moving, etc. As well the protective responses of flight, fight, and freeze. So if we work with it directly we can get to the source of issues be them mental, physical, or emotional. the Nervous System is designed to protect us and keep us alive, but when it is overworking or there is too much stored stress and survival energy , it hyperfunctions and is over protecting. Like in Autoimmune conditions, anxious patterns, and diseases of many kinds. 

I work with people from the level of the human physiology, which is the way in which a living organism or bodily part functions. Through practical somatic, which means relating to the body, to bring greater nervous system regulation for ourselves and our children. To overcome trauma and stress physiology we need to connect with this survival energy directly , rather than just changing thoughts and behaviors. When in a survival state all the system is doing is trying to protect itself and no amount of rational thought or positive honking will alter that  physiology. If a bear is chasing you everything within the system is geared to flee, fight, or freeze (aka playing dead). This is valuable for surviving, but not for thriving. Unresolved trauma and stress can keep us stuck in survival physiology. which is then impacted by chronic stress. Whatever the issues may be the underlying nervous system physiology is the foundation for learning, healing, and adapting to occur. Freedom lives within the capacity to be resilient and overcome adversity. To embody sovereign will and life force rather than living from a survival state and indoctrinations that can limit our capacity to truly thrive.

My interest and passion regarding the human condition are channeled by guiding people through an understanding of sensation; the window from the world into self.

Self-understanding = human evolution
