I work in three modalities that work together to build purpose and passion. Executive Coaching dives into the questions of “What do you want?” and “How can we get there?” Somatic Psychotherapy surfaces the deeply held patterns and emotions in your body helping you create more freedom. Plant medicine accelerates the waking up and knowing of your deepest self, what it wants, and how to live a life of choice and meaning.

Executive Coaching

Coaching is a process to help formulate goals aligned with purpose and meaning and identify blocks, challenges, and opportunities. Through careful questions, clients come to an awareness of the forces that are creating their context and their habitual self. This clarity, along with strengthening of the intentions and goals, helps clients understand and move toward a place they want to be. We spend time digging deep into resources–inner and outer–to identify a path to the future full of grace and ease.

Coaching can come in both directive and exploratory modes. In the directive mode, we discuss a topic, look at alternatives and chart a course to success. In the exploratory mode, I raise questions and see where the answers lead us. Using both modes balances and tempers the active, “here’s how you can proceed,” with the more open, “where would you like to go?” As both a business school professor and a therapist, I find that working through both lenses help clients move more quickly than one mode alone.

Clients arrive with all kinds of questions: “How can I get along with my boss better?”, “How can I have a deeper relationship with my partner?” “How can I build a more effective team at work?” Sometimes clients arrive with big goals with lots of steps like: “I want a new job” or “I want to change careers/cities/partners,” “I want have more energy and focus and be less depressed and anxious.” I will meet you where you are with your questions and goals. We can dig in together.

Somatic Therapy

The Hakomi method of somatic psychotherapy carefully studies and tracks the physical, the emotional, and the mental body and how we organize ourselves to engage the world – both our outer world and our inner world. With careful attention in a mindful state, we track not only the memories and stories of our past but also the physical source of our emotions and core beliefs.  creating more freedom and choice.

Hakomi is the most effective form of self-exploration I have found. It creates not only self-understanding and acceptance, but helps you reprogram the “selves” that push you forward and hold you back. With careful, mindful awareness, we slow down and look at your habitual responses frame by frame. The process brings forth a deep sense of inner strength, clarity, and confidence. In its essence, Hakomi is a process of guided self-study, self-healing, and self-expansion.

Clients arrive with all kinds of patterning that they want to change: depression, disconnection, anxiety, distraction, limiting self talk and the deeper more challenging emotions of fear, shame, and rage. While all this is a part of being a human, so too is our ability to wake up, become more aware, and direct our experience toward a deeper meaning and purpose. Underneath these challenging emotional and somatic patterns are often old wounds, deep emotions, core beliefs, and strategies for coping. Slowing down and studying how you organize your experience in a safe and supported way brings not only insight but transformation not only in the stories well tell ourselves but the deep somatic level where our anxieties, fears, depressions, and distractions live. The body knows how to heal itself and grow. Hakomi is a process that dives into the somatic origins of our psychological experience.
