My passion and life’s work is to facilitate transformation-in myself, in others and in the world. I work with people who are ready to step fully into their lives and bodies and who are ready for the kind of work that brings lasting change and a paradigm shift. I aim to create and sustain long-term relationships with clients and community members; to walk through the ins and outs, the ups and downs together. Imagine what it would be like to commit to a long-term partnership with me in this process of coming home to your body. To having a guide, a cheerleader, a support in times of doubt and distress.
I was drawn to healing and the journey of embodiment as you may have been: because of chronic pain, emotional distress and behavioral patterns that were no longer supportive. I was a philosophy major with a religion minor in college, and have always been curious about science, spirituality and the body. As time passed and I felt more and more uneasy in my own life and emotions, I began to seek help. Unwilling to undergo surgery or take medication, I dove into healing, meditation and the yogic tradition, as well as years of body-based therapy and group work. This gradually reawakened my connection to my body and its deep wisdom and connection with others, which had been severed due to trauma and neglect. Over the past several years I’ve become a student of Interpersonal Neurobiology, depth empathy and Polyvagal Theory through the work of Dr. Dan Siegel, Sarah Peyton, Stephen Porges and others. The grounding of neuroscience combined with the meditative traditions I’ve practiced has given me enormous inspiration and a large toolkit to work with myself and others, as well as a conceptual framework that explains our lives while maintaining their sacredness.
I continue to challenge myself to grow and heal, engaging in weekly therapeutic work of my own, receiving both mentorship and supervision. I continue to learn about liberation strategies that reach towards all people, the environment and the future. I participate in group work and am committed to being a part of the change that’s so desperately needed in the world right in this moment. Integrating everything I’ve learned improves my work with clients and helps to deepen the healing power of BCST. It helps me to be a loving father to my daughter and a loving human. It allows me to care for the world and to try to reach out to marginalized communities, that I may steward my power and privilege responsibly.
