Individual Work

Doing individual work can give you the opportunity to dive deeply into areas of your life that you wish to explore and transform.

Topics can include:
  • Resolving and releasing trauma from current life - physical, emotional, mental, spiritual
  • Resolving grief, expectations and disappointments about yourself, others, life
  • Releasing resentments, rejections and regrets (things from the past that prevent you from being more fully present today
  • Releasing negative beliefs and habits that are no longer helpful
  • Clearing blocks to knowing your soul's purpose
  • Claiming, embracing and fully living your soul's purpose
Sometimes it is helpful to energeticaly access traditionally "difficult to access" places:
  • In-utero and birth trauma and beliefs that you took on
  • Inter-generational trauma and abuse
  • Ancestral expectations and beliefs
  • Past lives (if this fits in your belief system).
And in the process of healing, you may receive:
  • A sense of future
  • A sense of belonging
  • A renewal of your passion
  • Unlimited possibilities
  • A boost in your creativity
  • A boost in your mood and vitality
My work is relational, somatic, energizing, and life-enhancing.

You may schedule a session in-person or via zoom, telephone or Skype.

If coming to an in-person session, please refrain from wearing any scented products.

Do I need to do individual work?

Many people seek individual work so sort out and release some unfinished business from their past. They are often able to resolve those issues and move forward with greater ease.

Some come because they have been traumatized-by violence, abuse, an accident-and have seek healing of the trauma. In this case I work with individuals not only to resolve the trauma but also to help them undo any ways in which they have organized their lives to cope with the trauma.

Some people have a vague sense that they are not living as fully as they can and that something is missing. Then the work is a journey to retrieve the missing component(s) and incorporate them into daily life.

Some people come to experience healing of relationship wounds-parental, romantic, societal.

Some come because they are grieving the loss of a loved one, a career, health. Then the work is to honor what has been lost and to allow the wound to heal and the person to flourish. This process can be deep and powerful, as one loss is often connected to all others which have not been given attention.

Some come because they have been trying for a long time on their own to shift certain behaviors, thought patterns or beliefs and have had limited success. Sometimes another perspective can be helpful. Other times it may be beneficial to look energetically at the ancetral level for beliefs, patterns, limitations that have been inherited. Traumatic imprints can also be inherited.

Only you can decide if this is right for you. Usually people know after one session if this is something they want to continue.


You can experience one or a combination of numerous approaches to help bring about ease, relief, resolution of existing conditions.

Included in this list are:

First Session

A first session is 75 minutes.

And please note that I have a 48-hour cancellation policy.

Subsequent Sessions

Subsequent sessions are 50 or 75 minutes, depending on your preference, needs and processing style.

Some people need a longer session in order to be able to do a deep piece of work and emerge from it. Others manage better in the 50 minute time frame.

It is generally recommended that you come in weekly, at least for the first couple of months, then we will evaluate whether this is the best timing for you.
