Body-Centered Transformation


A supportive, grounded space for women to unfold into the fullness of their being.

Messy, raw, imperfect, broken - all is Welcome!

My Unfolding came after my Unraveling

It was a decade ago - I had hit rock bottom.

Shame permeated every part of my soul. I was maxed out on my capacity.

Beyond depleted with NO idea how to replenish my reserves.

Guilt ridden because I felt so unfulfilled & dissatisfied with my "good life".
How dare I feel like this? Throughout my life I had survived abuse, poverty, miscarriage.
I had it good now.
 

But inside I was suffocating, dying, screaming to be seen - but the world only saw the façade of a strong "had it all together" woman who could do it all.
I was desperately trying to pretend everything was ok.
But it wasn't...

I had lost myself...
Actually, the reality of it was that I never really knew myself. I had operated out of alignment with myself my entire life.

I was a survivor. It's all I knew how to be.

Consumed with "not-enoughness" I gave everything I was - everything I had - to my family, spouse, friends and work. 
But it was never enough... I believed "I" was never enough.
I feared I would never feel happy. 
 My life felt like it wasn't my own -  like it was designed for someone else. 
I was pulled in every direction. I was everything and nothing.
Never truly SEEN.

No one knew it, but I had been holding on by a thread. I felt encased in a snow globe, surrounded by fire and molten rock, slowly cooking to death, suffocating from the building pressure. 
Beyond the glass, life was in full bloom. My beautiful children playing happily. 
Desperate to a part of it, I held on with every ounce of energy I could muster to stay in this life, though barely vapors at this point. Pregnant at the time, I set a timeline for myself. I would wait six months after birth and if I couldn't turn things around, I would leave the earth.
Every moment was an incredibly difficult choice to stay.
Shortly after the birth of my twins, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease (even here; I had to fight for a diagnosis as I was dismissed by doctors). 
This, coupled with my pregnancy, explained some of the severity of where I found myself. 
But really, it had been building for many, many years and this was just the tipping point.

I was at a crossroads. I had to make a choice.

 
Give up, never truly know what it meant to LIVE. Possibly even use the plan to escape this life if necessary. 
OR decide to fight FOR MYSELF, allow myself to feel my dissatisfaction, admit I was sick & tired of feeling like a worthless piece of shit and do what I needed to do to HEAL my mind, body and spirit.
It was an incredibly HARD decision to make. I was so tired.
But I found hope in my disease ... yes, you read that right. After a year of contemplating suicide, here was part of a solution - maybe - just maybe - I can feel ok enough to be in my body a little longer. 
Deep inside, I knew I wasn't done with life.
I hadn't yet experienced what it was like to truly LIVE - to FEEL alive. 
I wanted to feel worthy (whatever that looked like).
I wanted to matter. I wanted to be fully SEEN. I wanted to have purpose, fulfillment, joy...

AND I wanted it all while being my AUTHENTIC self!
I didn't know who she was - my real self - most of my life was spent giving myself away.
Truth be told, I was terrified I wouldn't like her. But I was ready to find out.
It felt like a tall order - but really, what did I have to lose?

I felt a shift inside me. I finally wanted to do something for MYSELF!

"People may call what happens at midlife 'a crisis' but it's not. It's an unravelling - a time when you need a desperate pull to live the life you want to live,
not the one you're 'supposed to live '."

~Brené Brown

What is Somatic Mind Body Coaching?

The word 'Soma' is from the ancient Greek language meaning vibrant, living body. It encompasses your entire organism in its full aliveness.

In other words, "Soma" is the living organism in its wholeness!
It also means that everything about you is valid and worthy!

We live in a culture that is largely disembodied. Scientific research is now uncovering what mind-body modalities have known for years, that the body keeps stories of the individual's life experiences as electronic information inside the cells. 

'Somatics' recognizes that your brain and body are a dynamic system working together to maintain balance and wellbeing. If we only focus on the mind to try and "fix" or overcome our experiences and the habitual responses to our experiences, we are missing out on a massive part of our lived experience.  

When we deepen our awareness of what is happening in the body, we can begin to heal those areas where the stories and beliefs are stored and experience a whole new, profound kind of freedom!

By doing this work of connecting with our bodies, we begin to cultivate presence - the incredible gift of "being". 
Our world begins to open up as we discover new choices, new possibilities and a new understanding of ourselves that allows us to take back our power and make conscious, aligned decisions for our lives. 
We reclaim our innate selves and operate from the wisdom of the body.
This is HUGE!

Your embodied innate self is your true source of power!

This work will change the way you experience yourself and your life.

Dear Woman Unfolding™,

I understand how challenging it can be to invest in yourself. I believe in empowering you to make an informed, conscious choice. I trust you to know what is best for you. This means I don’t need to manipulate you into working with me. 

For this reason I have created a low investment, low commitment offer to give you the opportunity to truly test and see if somatic mind body coaching is for you.

You will receive three - one hour, recorded, coaching sessions that will take place weekly or biweekly for an investment of $150 USD.

This offer is good for women who:


  • Feel stuck in their development journey
  • Have lost themselves in their work, families or partners
  • Feel pulled in every direction and maybe even feel out of control
  • Feel things are not working anymore (or maybe it never did) & want more out of life
  • Lack self worth and self esteem 
  • Feel a transition is coming and want support through it.

Requirements for this offer:


  • New to my coaching sessions and want to explore if somatic mind-body coaching is right for them
  • Open to exploring and feeling into the body (Always in a slow, safe space, never pushy)
  • Have started their self development journey and want to dive deeper into themselves.
  • Are ready to transition into a more embodied, fulfilled life.

Please note that all intro sessions must be used within 2 months of purchase. 
*Limited monthly availability*

Let's chat!

We'll talk about your current struggles, and where you'd really like to be. If we are not a good fit or you require different support from what I offer, I will let you know upfront.

A gentle reminder...
Everything about you is valid and worthy!

We simply can not heal and become our embodied selves through "thinking" alone. 
By embracing and feeling into the body, you will have access to wisdom, resourcefulness, clarity, direction and answers. You will become more compassionate with yourself. You will understand how the body has protected you so intelligently. And you will learn to operate from the wisdom of the body and begin to see yourself as WHOLE and EMPOWERED.
