For human beings, not human thinkings

More than talk—transformation

Somatics offers a radically different approach than traditional talking-led approaches to healing.

In somatic coaching, we feel first—working through the body using dialogue, embodied mindfulness, physical practices, and touch. By entering at the level of sensation and emotion, we ground the thinking-self into the knowing of the body.

We get quiet and curious—we become explorers.

Below the content of your life, the body points to what you care about and what needs to be made visible so that you can move forward. Together, we face the embodied experiences and habits that keep you stuck in patterns that no longer serve you.

Through presence and practice, healing happens.

Vitality returns as energy spent in protection-mode frees up. And new possibilities emerge as you embody and act from your presence and aliveness.

The first session I had with David was profound. It was a deep unlock. Not because I had found the answers to the universe—but because he shined a light on parts of my interior world that had never been seen before. And that simple effect opened up new curiosity and empathy and lightened what had previously felt so thick.

How I work

Learning and growing in relationship is, in many ways, the ultimate path. From embodying extreme self-reliance to deep isolation, many of us feel burdened by all the ways we’ve “figured it out,” craving to not have to work so hard, alone.

I am an ally and supportive guide.

My role is to partner with you on behalf of what matters most—what you would like to create in your life. 

While we are in the process together, the work of somatic coaching belongs entirely to you. I facilitate contact with your inner-knowing, lead by what arises throughout our sessions and in between. Any insight or tool I offer is only valuable in so far as it lands true for you and supports your process; your soma is the wisest leader in the room.

This way of working allows us to be in an ongoing practice of building and trusting your embodied presence and agency, through the container of a safe and supportive coaching relationship.  

Sessions

Sessions range from 50-minutes to 80-minutes in length, in person or remotely via video conference or phone. 

Within a session, the methods we use are designed according to the goals of our work and what arises in the process.

These may include: 

  • Conversation

  • Bringing attention to the felt experiences in the body

  • Orienting in the environment

  • Guided somatic practices (seated, standing, partnering)

  • Meditation

  • Touch

  • Designing and committing to practices and actions

  • Check-ins between sessions (pre-arranged or as needed)

Somatic coaching is a commitment to your growth and relies on consistency and momentum. While single sessions can be offered, clients are asked to commit to a series of sessions—either 10 or 24 weeks.

Payment for coaching engagement packages is preferred upfront.

To make my work accessible to a range of individuals, I offer payment plans and a number of sliding-scale spots. I encourage anyone who is financially challenged to have a dialogue with me about their needs.

The progress I’ve made with David in just a few sessions is nothing short of profound.

I’ve had anxiety-triggered pain in my body for years—that he helped me unwind in just a matter of weeks. Although traditional therapy helped me grow in many ways, David’s coaching helped me confront and move through grief, fears, stories, and questions that I was still holding in my body. This kind of letting go has freed me up to become a happier human, better teacher and partner, and a re-inspired business owner.

I am new to this work and not sure how to describe it, but I want to continue. I’m not sure how or why, but I am experiencing moments of new creativity, enthusiasm, laughter, and joy. I believe David’s somatic work is key to the new growth and vitality I am seeking.
