I am dedicated to evolve the understanding of the link between spirit and structure, and to this end I study, practice and teach. I have a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychotherapy, have worked with the body for almost 25 years, and am certified by the Institute of Core Evolution as a Somatic Therapist.
In 1990, setting up a massage practice in Santa Fe, New Mexico, I became frustrated to find my clients reassembling the same stress patterns week after week. I began to explore many disciplines in last two decades, and from this experience I now approach body, belief and emotion together.
I identify what I call “survival circuitry,” patterns developed by the immune system as a response to developmental stress. This circuitry is made up of false conclusions about reality, postural defenses and attitudes which support the perception of the world it was born from. It sucks vital energy from the body, limits possibilities and preserves wrong ideas. With awareness it can be reconfigured, and replaced by more current solutions.
