What does working together look like?
Sessions combine the Somatic Experiencing (SE™) model with other tools that help resource the nervous system such as soul connection work, shamanic practices, herbalism/plant connection, ancestral healing, Reiki, etc.
Somatic Experiencing (SE™) is a body-oriented therapeutic model applied in multiple professions and professional settings—psychotherapy, medicine, coaching, teaching, and physical therapy—for healing trauma and other stress disorders. It is based on a multidisciplinary intersection of physiology, psychology, ethology, biology, neuroscience, indigenous healing practices, and medical biophysics and has been clinically applied for more than four decades.
The SE approach offers a framework to assess where a person is “stuck” in the fight, flight or freeze responses and provides clinical tools to resolve these fixated physiological states. SE provides effective skills appropriate to a variety of healing professions including mental health, medicine, physical and occupational therapies, bodywork, addiction treatment, first response, education, and others.

What about tools I can use on my own?
Step into Soul is a program where we break down the different tools and components that are often used in 1:1 sessions so they can be used in self-practice. Each month focuses on a different theme, and provides a set of tools and practices that can be applied to daily life to help with nervous system regulation, self-connection, reducing anxiety, increasing creativity, and getting clarity on the things most important to you.
1:1 Nervous System Nourishment
1:1 programs are customized based on what's coming up in your nervous system, and your goals over the next few months. Some signs you're ready to dive in are:
You know it's time to work with your body, and your nervous system, in a different way. You want tools to help your anxiety, to de-stress, to feel connected and balanced again.
You'd love to release the armor around your heart, and learn how to create a feeling of safety in yourself.
You feel like something is holding you back from being your brightest, most authentic self. This could be anxiety, fear of judgement, fear of using your voice, etc. Yet, your soul wants to be free, in the driver's seat, and shining in an authentic way.
You want to explore specific areas of sensation or pain in the body. This could be your heart, your throat, your back, really anywhere that you'r curious what messages it holds, and what it's trying to tell you.
Sessions can include nervous system nourishment, somatic healing techniques, Reiki, shamanic journeying, energy work, plant spirit connection, breathwork, soul connection practices, and herbal ally recommendations.

You know your body, nervous system and energetic body are holding onto things that aren't serving you. You're ready to give yourself the nourishment you need, on a regular basis.
You want to receive customized support, while also learning tools and practices you can do on your own.
It's important to you that what you learn fits into your day-to-day life, versus feeling like a yoga retreat that's amazing in the moment, but gets forgotten about when life gets busy or challenging.
You want to get your own unique guidance, from your soul, body and guides. You might have an idea of something you want to do, create, or change, but pieces of the puzzle are missing.
