Notice of licensure restrictions:

If you are located in Colorado, Wyoming, or Florida, I can work with you as your therapist. 

Regardless of your location, I can support you as a Living Inquiries facilitator. 

My responsibilities and capacities under each title are distinct. Please feel free to contact me and we can discuss this distinction.

Check out my blog post on the benefits of somatic work out in nature. 

I offer individual sessions over zoom that can include any (and often all) of the following elements:

  • ecotherapy in your preferred local natural setting: research shows natural spaces reduce activation in the nervous system, which means we have a little more "space" when something uncomfortable arises. We also have many beings and elements to engage with, receive support from, find metaphor in, and listen to.
     

  • somatic inquiry: specific questions that draw your attention to distinct aspects of your experience in your body and mind - such as mental images, body sensations, thoughts, and movement, as well as your environment, increasing awareness of how you work from moment to moment. Inquiry also helps "mine" unconscious beliefs, internal resources, authentic insights, and unresolved trauma.
     

  • education: I'll share what I know about current nervous system research, theories, and what I've learned from nearly a decade of working with clients
     

  • movement and play: noticing what feels good in our bodies, often below the level of thought, and exploring impulses and urges that we tend to override or ignore, accessing what is true and authentic for us. Movement and play also helps us titrate uncomfortable sensation in the body.
     

  • practices and tools: some of which I share, others that we develop specifically for you based on feedback from your nervous system and relationships with the environment and beings around you

Sessions are 60 minutes or 75-90 minutes. 

*Offered exclusively in Wyoming at this time*

*All clients must attend 4-6 sessions over zoom prior to scheduling an outdoor session*


Check out my blog post on the benefits of somatic work out in nature. 

Opportunities in an outdoor session can include: 

 

  • walking and moving together throughout the area as desired and appropriate, which could range from walking to sitting the entire session
     

  • observing relevant metaphors in the surrounding landscape
     

  • connecting more deeply with particular spaces, elements, and beings and gaining insight as a result
     

  • navigating the unexpected (and life sure is full of surprises!), observing ourselves in real time
     

  • practicing more subtle mindfulness skills that include somatic/bodily awareness
     

  • finding personal thresholds for pleasure and discomfort that can translate to greater awareness in everyday life
     

  • I'm actually there, with you, in physical relationship with the wild world around us, incorporating it throughout our session

Sessions are 90 minutes to allow time for transitioning into and out of the space.

The Living Inquiries is a facilitation method that utilizes mindfulness and curiosity to explore body sensations and thoughts as they arise in the present moment. I'll patiently and compassionately help you explore the emotions and inner stories that accompany the issue of your choosing. In being with what we believe to be wrong with gentle curiosity and presence, what unfolds can be truly transformative.

Sessions are typically between 60 and 90 minutes to allow adequate time for inquiry.

My practice is based on the belief that we all deserve emotional support, healing, and peace of mind regardless of race, gender, income, orientation, or background.

I offer a wide sliding scale based on income, my current availability, and whether I'm working with you as a therapist or facilitator. If you are genuinely unable to pay within this range, please let me know and we can discuss the possibility of a more affordable option. 

 

I do not ask for proof of income, but trust each client's willingness to participate in a system that benefits those they will likely never meet for the good of the whole. 

Individuals located in Colorado: I'm able to bill under several insurance plans through a third-party biller called SonderMind. Please contact your insurance and confirm that SonderMind is in-network, the amount of your deductible, the number of sessions covered, and any co-pays to determine eligibility. 

Out-of-network billing:

I am happy to provide an invoice for services rendered to submit for reimbursement to your insurance company for out-of-network benefits.
