Photo on 9-17-14 at 2.54 PM #2Our marvelous neurological systems want to self regulate.  Sometimes they get “stuck,” having learned a path that doesn’t benefit us well.  The good news is, this can change.

My work is to shepherd the nervous system through to healthy responses.  Simplifying complex neurological concepts so they are helpful to you brings positive change.

When working with children, I help their developing systems to modulate in a more mature fashion through play.  This makes way for a happy, stable life.

A system that is overwhelmed, has a physical response to that stress.  When stress is held in the body, I support the body to find a way to release it gently.  This is especially seen in accident survivors.  Survival energy can be trapped in the tissues.  Some of my patients come with pain that moves, but has not gone away.  Just talking about it is not helpful.  Flatly ignoring it doesn’t fix the problem either.  I support the body to help process this.

The therapy for this can vary.  Sometimes it involves physical support.  Often it involves an interior awareness of physical changes.  Contact me at 415 640 1288 or via the contact form on the home page.
