Birth Doula • Somatic Practitioner
...this very body that we have, that's sitting here right now, with its aches and its pleasures ...is exactly what we need to be fully Human, fully awake, fully alive - pema chodron
I recently completed my training in Hakomi therapy, with the Seattle Hakomi Education Network. Hakomi therapy is a mindfulness based somatic psychotherapy.
Rooted in the Buddhist practice of mindfulness and loving presence, this nourishing therapeutic practice centers the lived experience of the body as the foundation for assisted self discovery.
Unlike with traditional psychotherapy, there is no diagnosis given, no presumed pathology to decipher. Rather, there is the radical notion that no one is broken and every body can access healing through expanded self awareness and the shared experience of safety and connection.
As I work towards my certification as a Hakomi practitioner, I currently offer somatic integration sessions for those who are curious to explore this work.
