Coach with me...

My coaching style

Layering onto my current certifications, I am practicing somatic coaching as a student of the Strozzi Institute.  Somatics, from the Greek word soma, refers to our entire being - our body, mind, heart, and spirit. 

In somatic coaching we work to create an awareness of our thoughts, emotions, physical sensations, how we hold our body and move through the world, and the ways we react under stress.    In this work, transformation is defined as the ability to act in alignment with our values, even under pressure.  

We start with uncovering what makes you come alive, what you are wanting to move toward -  your longing.  This is your soul fuel. 


Then we bring awareness, compassion, respect, and gratitude for where you are right now and what may have shaped you. 


Alongside this we co-create practices to support awareness, resilience and growth.  With this support, you can begin to let go of what no longer serves you, and open into a new way of being in the world. 


Throughout, we notice and celebrate insight and growing capacity.  Healing and growth is dynamic and ongoing - our body, our perspective, our life circumstances, and our environment are always changing, requiring that we adapt and grow.

"The greatest and most important problems of life are all in a sense insoluble… they can never be solved, but only ‘outgrown’…


"This ‘outgrowing’ as I formerly called it, on further experience was seen to consist in a new level of consciousness.  Some higher or wider interest arose on the person’s horizon, and through this widening of view, the insoluble problem lost its urgency. 


"It was not solved logically in its own terms, but faded out when confronted with a new and stronger life tendency."

- Carl Jung

"The places in which we are seen and heard are holy places.  They remind us of our value as human beings.  They give us the strength to go on."


- Rachel Naomi Remen



I am currently offering a sliding scale from $60 to $125 per hour.  I also reserve a few slots for reduced fee clients. 


It may be possible to request reimbursement for health coaching from your HSA / FSA account, with a letter from your physician.



Sessions may be remote via Zoom, or in person at my home office in the Santa Cruz Mountains and San Luis Obsipo.  In person sessions may include bodywork for somatic opening, and immersion in nature. 


Free Curiosity Call

I offer a free one hour Zoom call for us to get to know each other and see if we are a good fit.  I explain what coaching is and isn't, and answer any questions you may have, and you can share your hopes for our coaching together.  I also like to save some time for a brief demo, as coaching is much easier to show than explain.


For scheduling and questions, I invite you to send me a message via my Connect page, or click the button below.  I typically respond within 24 hours and have availability within a week.
