Restoring the Wounded Spirit

“Presence is the place where the past is being alchemized into the now...Unresolved past is destiny; it repeats until we have the courage to work together to face it.” - Thomas Hubl

SOMATICALLY  ORIENTED & EMBODIED  HEALING

Healing the wounded spirit by

reorienting and opening the layers of your

mind, body, heart, and soul to

safety, nurturance, and love

Leslie is a gifted healer who brings her own embodied presence and intuitive understanding of the mind, body, heart, and soul into a grounded framework. Leslie offers a gentle, somatic and embodied approach that is uniquely curated to meet each individual. This approach helps people increase the overall regulation of their nervous system in order to integrate imprints of the past so they can connect to what it is like to be fully embodied in now time.

 

We have entered into an era of healing where we remember that we are not problems to be solved or fixed, but rather mysteries to be tenderly uncovered, nurtured, and explored. We can better honor and respect the complexities of being human by setting aside reductionistic and dualistic ways of thinking in favor of more holistic and innovative ones. Whether you are experiencing: echos of previous trauma(s), stuck in: patterns of behavior that no longer resonate, or emotional states of grief, depression, or anxiety, it would be an honor to work with you.

This co-creative and collaborative process is designed to help individuals and groups find pathways to deep healing and transformation that results in an expanded capacity to embrace all emotion or circumstance with greater ease, intimacy and balance.

Somatic:

Awareness of the body

Shadow/Fragmented Parts:

archetypal parts of the collective unconsciousness that play out individually and ancestrally in our lives that we often repress or judge. Turning towards and welcoming these shadowy or painful aspects of ourselves and others with non-judgment and ultimately compassion breeds more wholeness and overall life force in ourselves and humanity as a whole

Embodied:

Capacity to attend and attune to the sensation in the body 

Healing:

Using compassion presence to witness and feel all aspects of humanness in and through the body. Through embodied and compassionate presence, we can observe  all parts of our individual, ancestral, and collective humanness in a way that changes our relationship to how we live and experience life. 

Leslie's expertise is in attuning to and tracking sensation in and through the body. Working in this way allows her to attune to you in a way that (a)reorients and reconnects you to the living experience of safety already inside your body and (b)catalyzes the body's innate capacity for healing unprocessed experiences of grief and trauma.

Our Services

Leslie supports and activates deep transformations in the lives of others, and has been doing so for well over a decade. She has worked with individuals from many different walks of life; from coaches, therapists, doctors, celebrities, CEOs, athletes, actors, parents, gardeners, professors, scientists, etc… - The variety is endless, but one thing remains the same; our shared human experience.

Leslie has extensive education in many different modalities in the healing arts that allows her to offer clients an incredibly well-rounded sense of mind, body, heart, spirit and soul work. Over the years Leslie has also received an extensive amount of experiential understanding of how the subtlest, barely perceptible, expression of energy takes shape into the visible expression of matter and what we see in the world around us.  In sessions, Leslie shares this knowledge to assist and guide others into deeper awareness and embodiment. A compassionate patience, accompanied by an unwavering ability to read energy in its subtlest and rawest form; Leslie gets right to the core of the individual, ancestral, and collective-trauma from conditioned beliefs, thoughts, and movement or behavioral patterns which have taken up residence in the layers of each-one of us.

 

Somatic therapy is not psychotherapy. Through somatic and embodied practices the intention is to bring people into the awareness of how their stories and lived experiences have evolved from energetic roots in their body that until acknowledged and compassionately attended to, continue to repeat themselves. As we become embodied beings, we learn how to attune to those subtle energetic and emotional calls of our inner child in order to remember, restore and come back into relationship with the health, wisdom, and power innate to our being.

Testimonials

I’ve worked with many therapists and Leslie is the best I have ever had. I feel so comfortable in her space and also so seen, heard and understood in ways that have allowed me to build internal resilience. I appreciate the way Leslie is able to integrate somatic learning with talk therapy and how she is able to adapt her methods and teachings to fit each session. I will continue to recommend Leslie as a therapist to my friends and feel so lucky to have found her for this time in my life.

Restore, Reconnect, and Reclaim

"The time will come

when, with elation,

you will greet yourself arriving

at your own door, in your own mirror

and each will smile at the other's welcome,

and say, sit here. Eat.

You will love again the stranger who was your self.

Give wine. Give bread, Give back your heart

to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored

for another, who knows you by heart.

Take down the love letters from the bookshelf

the photographs, the desperate notes,

peel your own image from the mirror.

Sit. Feast on your life. "

-Derek Walcott: Love after Love
