Present-Centered Awareness/Body Based

Through present-centered attention on one’s sensations, impulses or even a thought under a thought, a client gains a ‘felt sense’ of their experiences, in the moment, which provides a more holistic sense of the problem or unresolved situation. 

When I work with an individual (or family) I am not just looking at the symptoms and trying to ‘change' them so the symptoms will go away. Often, the symptoms actually hold the keys for transformation. 

By being willing to explore one’s present experience one can often get information regarding deeper needs or unexpressed, unresolved pains, and through awareness, movement and expression transformation takes root naturally.
