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.


My work is relational, somatic, energizing, and life-enhancing.


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


Please refrain from wearing any scented products to you session.





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.

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









First Session

A first session is 75 minutes.

Click here to download the client information sheet, informed consent and office policies. Please complete these and bring these to your first session.

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.
