Somatic Support
for all Identities

You have big feelings and you’re not sure what to do with them.


Do you feel stuck? Do you struggle with anxiety or depression? Do you often feel like a deer in headlights? Do you feel imprisoned by what triggers you? Do you live with chronic pain?


Chances are your body is stuck in a state of self-defense.

You’re not broken.


Though it might not always feel incredibly helpful, these defensive states are our bodies' way of looking out for us. 


When I first started learning about trauma, stress, and the nervous system I felt like everything finally made sense. I felt like I finally made sense. And I felt like I had options. 

You can feel better in your body.


Just like your body looks out for you, I can help you look out for your body in return.​​​

Somatic approaches (meaning, mindful and body-based approaches) have helped me feel more capable of caring for myself, doing hard things, and communicating with loved ones about my needs and boundaries.

Somatic approaches can help you feel more capable of doing life too.

What are sessions like?

Let's get you feeling better.

Getting started:


During the first session, we’ll flesh out what you’re struggling with and what you hope can be different when it comes to how you feel in your body.

You’ll also get a better sense of my style. I’m pretty casual, very curious, and sometimes a little funny! My intention is to create a space where you can metaphorically exhale, where you can be radically honest, and where you don’t have to perform. 


Finding our stride:

Our work will be most effective if we focus on a specific topic or theme each session. We’ll start by talking about what’s concerning you and I’ll help you gain clarity on what you’re thinking and feeling. From there we’ll process what you’re feeling, I’ll provide nervous system education, and we’ll practice building new skills.


I leave the decision to end our work together up to you. Some clients are ready to end once their initial goals have been met. Others prefer to set new intentions. Some clients like to slowly reduce the frequency of sessions before going “cold turkey.” When possible, I recommend we end intentionally by setting a date for our last session. 


Please know that just because we decide to stop meeting doesn't mean we have to say goodbye forever or that I can't be a resource for you. I’m always excited to welcome old clients back for check-ins or longer-term work, and you are of course welcome to participate in my other offerings.

Benefits of Working Together

Befriend your body and the "symptoms" that are stressing you out.

Practice discerning and responding to your body's needs.

What makes somatic support different from therapy?

Somatic support sessions are more focused and direct than a therapy session and is best suited for those who feel relatively resourced and stable. These sessions provide goal-specific support focused on improving somatic awareness, comfort, and confidence. These sessions are not psychotherapy, but can compliment the work you do in therapy.

What if I'm not Mixed or in an interracial relationship?

While my therapy services are reserved for mixed race adults and interracial couples, when my schedule allows I enjoy working with all kinds of people who are interested in trying a somatic approach.

How much do sessions cost?

Sessions are $220 (50-minute sessions). 

How frequent are sessions?

I work with people on a once-weekly or every-other-week basis. I do not provide monthly appointments.

What's your availability?

I work with clients Tuesdays - Thursdays 9 - 2:30 pm. Right now my schedule is very full, but I do have some availability. When my practice is at capacity or schedules don't align I keep a short wait list depending on our fit.

How long do people usually work with you?

I will have a better idea of how long you might expect to work on your initial goals after a few sessions. 

Where do we meet?

I provide both in-person and virtual coaching. I'm based in Ypsilanti, MI, and if you are nearby you are more than welcome in my office.
