Focusing somatically engages the whole person in a dynamic interface between mind, body, emotion, and spirit.
Research shows that stretching, sensing and sighing help release tension in your body, soothing the nervous system and helping you to feel better.
Feeling more connected to and grounded in your body helps during moments of stress and uncertainty.
A person’s mind, body, emotions, and spirit are meant to interweave with each other for flexibility and strength, calmness and confidence. When challenged by difficulty, discomfort, and disease, these integral parts of a person can become disengaged.
Listening to and learning from the body leads to living more fully in your body, and therefore in your whole self.

Are you feeling like this could be a good match? Let’s take a look then at the practical side of payment – either through insurance (both in-network and out-of-network) or through paying out-of-pocket.
I am a preferred provider for Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, First Choice Health/Kaiser, and
Premera Blue Cross. You may have a deductible and/or co-pay under this option.
If you don’t see your insurance plan listed, you can still use insurance if you have an out-of-network benefit. This option can be quite affordable, and I can provide you with a receipt that you can send to your insurance company for reimbursement.
When you pay out-of-pocket, or “self-pay”, you gain the benefit of maintaining your privacy, as I don’t then have to disclose a diagnosis to your insurance company. You also can receive treatment that your insurance plan may not cover.
