The work is an integration of talking and bodywork, that weaves together many modalities, including: biodynamic craniosacral therapy, perinatal psychology, and narrative medicine, with a focus on the autonomic nervous system and applied attachment theory. I see clients in Berkeley, California and Zoom.
