Hello, welcome to my website. I am passionate about living life in joy and vitality and teaching human beings to move into ease and freedom. I have learned so much from my years of being a therapist, and professor, but also from my experiences surfing, traveling, and studying cutting edge information that has changed the way I lived and brought joy and freedom to my daily life. I love providing Somatic Coaching, Supervision/Case Consults, and Speaking engagements. It is my delight to share this life-changing and helpful knowledge, with as many people as possible. A world with less stress, anger, and anxiety is a world where love and peace can flourish.
