Private Sessions

Contact me for a free 20-minute video consult to see how we can work together

Wherever you are in your career, together we can deepen your practice and break down the blocks that may be stopping you from feeling free in your work. Artists need nourishment in order to sustain creativity and desire in the midst of a lifestyle that can feel destabilizing.

Using teachings from F.M. Alexander, Patsy Rodenburg and Peter Levine we can build a practice that will release physical tension and inspire a new way of working.

The Art of Public Speaking

Your voice and the way you speak can reveal a lot about who you are and how you envision yourself in the world. 

Sessions are designed for professionals who want to be more confident and engaging when speaking publicly. Whether you’re on a conference call, a board meeting, on a panel or giving a TedTalk, this workshop will help you feel more at-ease and more dynamic when you speak.

From breathing and alignment to tone placement, tongue position and overall clarity including accented speech. When we work together, I will customize the lessons specifically for you and your ultimate goal.

Somatic Experiencing

Working through the body

Somatic Experiencing (SE) offers a framework to assess where a person is “stuck” in the fight, flight or freeze responses and provides clinical tools to resolve these fixated physiological states. 

The SE approach facilitates the completion of self-protective motor responses and the release of thwarted survival energy bound in the body, thus addressing the root cause of trauma symptoms. 

This is approached by gently guiding clients to develop increasing tolerance for difficult bodily sensations and suppressed emotions.

Private Sessions

SE sessions are usually one-hour in length but can be ninety minutes or more depending on the circumstances.

Please contact me or schedule a free consult so we can figure out what might work best.
