Healing the Wounded Spirt

Bridging the gap between our inner and out worlds

When our protective parts say about our shadow-selves: "its hurts: hide it, run from it, numb it with addictions, do whatever you can to avoid it.” The heart or higher-self says: "We're strong and wise enough. The hurt is the path: stay, soften, offer warmth, offer presence: listen through your senses because we cannot feel whole if some of us is frozen in the past. That which is stuck in the past shows up as various symptoms in the present. It is a piece of us, our shadow: abandoned, betrayed, rejected parts, asking for help to be integrated into now time.”

As someone who has worked with and through the body for the past two decades, Leslie has a unique understanding and capacity to offer consultation and coaching to therapists seeking to use somatic practices and understanding of how archetypes and character strategies of the collective unconscious led to wounding core the beliefs and somatic organization of survival strategies. As these strategies are set in motion in the formative years of life and they color our perspectives and ways of being in world. Through traversing the multidimensional layers of our body with an attuned and compassionate presence, we create conditions to digest past wounds and bring coherence, harmony, and a restored balance to our inner and outer worlds. Leslie finds that the best way to understand and utilize these modalities is through embodied understanding.

Holistic and Intuitive Guide: combining modalities of

Somatic and Embodied Guidance:

A journey into you through sensation:

Practitioner will draw from a number of embodied and somatic approaches  to help you connect with the archetypes and character strategies of the collective unconscious , or shadow parts, inside that hold beliefs and somatic organization of adaptive survival strategies. These strategies are set in motion in the formative years of life and often color how we navigate through the world. It is our shadow-selves that unintentionally keep us from living our fullest lives because those parts of us use all our energy orienting to how to keep us safe. Through this work, we will bring a presence of: safety, compassion, and gentlness (SLOW, WARM and SOFT), to those parts so the energy to shift from protection against life to embracing and opening to life.

Restorative Touch:

This approach is hands-on touch guided by intuitive awareness to help clients enter into a more embodied experience. This practice assists clients in releasing stress and pain, while also helping bridge and connect new patterns and pathways to encourage the body's innate capacity for self healing. Touch can be one of the most profound ways to catalyze old wounds and connect to living experiences of safety, nurturance, and ease within the body.  As we feel an internal sense of safety, we no longer unconsciously work so hard through unconscious strategies to keep us safe and have the energy to move towards want our hearts long for. Restorative touch has been created from years of integrated knowledge and training from: Polarity Therapy, Transforming the Experienced-Based Brain (TEB), Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and Somatic Experiencing.
