Somatic Body Therapy Sessions
Somatic Body Therapy sessions are in-person sessions with Chris, a Certified and Licensed Body Therapist. They include CranioSacral therapy and Light Touch therapeutic myofascial techniques. These healing sessions work with the physical body, somatic processes and your nervous system to release stuck energy, stress and/or trauma within your systems.
While all sessions work on more than the physical system, these sessions are designed for those that prefer hands-on therapeutic sessions for acute or chronic physical or somatic ailments.
You can begin with one session, or work in series of three sessions. You may decide to go through multiple series. Three session allows a full process of an issue to integrate. If the challenges are chronic and/or have been present for a long time, it may take more time to unwind and digest these experiences.
$150/1.5 hrs. See below for scholarship information.
Attunement & Guidance Sessions
Attunement and Guidance sessions can be either in-person or virtual. These healing and growth sessions may include CranioSacral, Somatic Processes, Energy Medicine or Inner Guidance for healing and insight into patterns on root levels.
These sessions work with somatic processing as well as energy patterns through imagery, sensations or guided shifts to help you heal and create in your life from a deeply attuned state.
These sessions work with Somatic Body Therapy along with Guidance and Energy Medicine. These sessions work well in series of three, or can be ongoing.

Nutritional & Herbal Therapy
Many of our physical, emotional and even mental challenges have a component of nutrient deficiency.
These consultations ($50/hour) with Chris, a Certified Nutritional and Master Herbalist, assess and work with the underlying cause of your symptoms.
We can inherit deficiencies and/or develop deficiencies. In Herbal Therapy, we work with the concept of our vital wholeness and intelligence – given the right nutrients and environment, our bodies are able to heal.
Nutritional and Herbal Therapy is near and dear to my heart. I have used these therapies for over 20 years. It is often the missing link in healing, especially chronic challenges.
Individual Wholeness Journey
A dedicated journey (recommended minimum six of months) to help guide and integrate your Self-development, healing and awakening to wholeness process.
This is deep work for those who are committed to their self actualizing and embodiment journey into wholeness. This experience works with inherited and intergenerational patterns, developed habits, exiled and protector parts of us, as well as inner guidance to more fully access our unique authentic self.
In this work I serve as your guide to create safety and clarity as you grow, expand, and integrate your unique essence into your everyday life.
Sessions are all about somatic (your inner felt sense experience) awareness, processing and integration. Whether an issue presents in your body, mind, emotions or even your spiritual longings, your body contains deep wells of wisdom AND holds pain, tension and unresolved issues. We work through dialog, guided sensory experiences, we create a safe environment for you body to release pain, discomfort, tensions, and traumas.
.Suggestion is to start with one session, see how it fits, then work in series of three sessions or in an ongoing format in order to make the most of your transformation journey.
Hands on sessions additionally use light touch fascia therapies to assist you in unwinding patterns, habits and stuck places.
Sessions are 90 minutes for both in-person and virtual sessions. We will make sure you are complete in your journey and have a safe container to enter back into your world with ease.
Because we are working with deep shifts, it is ideal to come no more than every two weeks. This allows time for integration.
It takes time for foundational and habitual patterns to shift in body, mind and heart spaces. If you are working a long held issue, it is common for clients to work with me a minimum of 3 month.
Once a month works well for many clients once the acute challenges have shifted.
Yes. Historically marginalized folks receive 15% off session costs.
Scholarships/slide scale are also available.

The Individual Wholeness Journey is suggested to be a minimum of a six month journey.
This is a deep dive into patterns, habits, exiled and protective parts that live within us. At the same time. this is a path of clearing and embodying your most authentic, true self and allowing that to shine through.
We live in a society that is set in survival mode. Our bodies have adopted this stance in many ways that we may be unaware. The Wholeness Journey is a path of re-discovering who we are, how we feel, what we know, and what we’re here to do.
It is a journey into Wholeness.
Session costs are $150 per session.
Classes, workshops and courses are individually priced.
Discounts and scholarships available. See that section for more info.
Every session is individualized.
Somatic Body Therapy is ideal for you if you are interested in treating physical pain relief or physical challenges,
Attunement and Guidance sessions will be a good fit for you if you wish to work with physical challenges in conjunction with possible emotional components, or habitual patterns and behaviors,
In all sessions, there is a process that unfolds as you move deeper into your inner awareness. Both types of sessions work with Somatic Awareness and processing. Attunement and Guidance sessions deepen your experience.
Individaul Wholeness Journey is a minimum six month long offering for those wanting to deepen their connection to both their body and their Spirit or Sacred Core (non-physical aspects.) This is program assists you in your journey into Wholeness.
This will vary for each person. Chronic pain and challenges take time to unwind and set new patterns into our lives.
What works well for clients is to work in a series of 3 sessions to begin. This allows for somatic processing and integration, even if you are coming for physical challenges.
Historically, I have worked with clients in a 10 session series. This amount of time, coming every two weeks, equals about three months. This is an ideal amount of time to work with established pattern and habits.
Once a month sessions are ideal for those that wish to work long term (six months to a year or more.) This type of work is also offered in Individual Wholeness Journey.

Guidance and Attunement sessions are available virtually.
Sessions are individual focused work with you, on whatever you are wanting to work with.
Somatic Body Therapy is a good starting place as it works with what we are more often aware of – pain.
Guidance and Attunement takes the Somatic Body Therapy further with internal awareness and tuning into your internal and external guidance.
Sessions provide both healing and experiences of a greater sense of Wholeness and authenticity.
Classes are often stand alone, in-person, virtual, or recorded educational practices. They often include movement and somatic (inner felt-sense) embodied experiences.
Classes provide a space for you to experience healing, more calm, awareness, vibrancy, fluidity and insight into your human experience.
Courses are multiple classes that bring us through an embodied educational journey. Here you are learning larger concepts and using deepening practices to assist your journey.
Courses provide a platform for exponential growth, learning or expanding on new concepts, and a deepening awareness of self and relationship to others.
