My Approach

I believe that each of our paths of healing and embodying our innate wholeness is unique...and rather amazing.  I hold this understanding close in approaching each person I work with, meeting you exactly where you are.  The following pillars of my approach are simply a loose outline of how our process could unfold:

Attunement / Embodiment

Using Realization Process mediation and attunement exercises, I help clients to come more fully, deeply and subtly into their bodies. In coming to a more settled experience in our body and contacting our subtle core, we experience a profound sense of safety and support from which to work with psycho-emotional material and self-limiting beliefs.  Much healing and integration can occur simply from the process of inhabiting our bodies more subtly and deeply.  Where we go from there (refining attunement, settling more deeply, working with qualities of being in the body, integrating breath and energy systems, exploring limiting beliefs and psychological holding patterns, etc.) is up to you and can take many directions. 

Inquiry / Discovery

When we enter into our body, especially as our experience becomes deeper and more subtle, we inevitably encounter protective holding patterns.  These adaptive patterns, which served an important function for some time in our life, have likely outlived their usefulness, and now ask only for our understanding and compassion.  And so we are invited  to gently inquire into these holding patterns (into their purpose, emotional content within them, beliefs associated with them, etc.).  We begin a discovery process, gently and gradually becoming more intimate with these constrictions… allowing them to experience more spaciousness, breath, and loving attention.  Integrating Realization Process exercises that take us deeply into our body with Coherence Therapy methodology for uncovering core areas of meaning, feeling and emotional learning, we create a potent opportunity to allow these holding patterns to unwind at their root.

The Realization Process is focused on the transformation of our being, inviting us to directly attune to very subtle aspects and qualities of our being.  We gradually shift from an abstract experience of life, to a direct, lived experience.  Our sense of self shifts from an image of ourselves to a felt-sense of self.  Our breath and senses become more refined, and our internal experience more spacious and substantial. Realization Process exercises also create the opportunity to work with trauma and limiting beliefs at their most subtle (root) dimension.  Coherence Therapy methodology clearly and elegantly applies groundbreaking memory reconsolidation research to the psychological healing process, also facilitating deep, lasting change.


It is important to give transformative shifts the time and space to integrate.  As old, protective patterns unwind, we may feel vulnerable in certain areas of our body or in our relating to other people…  perhaps a bit raw.  There may also be a lot of energy or emotion released in our body that requires space and wants to settle.  We are asked to be extra tender and caring towards ourselves as we learn to be in our bodies, in relationships and in the world in this new, more open way.  By cultivating a patient, gentle voice toward ourselves, taking great care, and committing to practices that continue to bring us back to center, we allow this integration process to unfold as smoothly as it may.  Both the Realization Process and Coherence Therapy are uniquely designed to help support the integration process.
