Body Centered Counseling
In these times, we are being
pushed to our limits.
If you have experienced trauma,
struggle with relationships,
feel like something is wrong with you,
anxious or alone,
Take a deep breath
and know that...
even as the world is changing,
you can find your center
and ride the wave.
It just takes practice.
I'm here to help.
"Beth's presence and emotional availability is one that allows for any door to be opened and for any emotion to be experienced safely." D.W.
For over 20 years,
I have been exploring ways to
stay embodied, empowered
and excited about life
even while facing difficult
and painful situations.
As a somatic therapist,
Buddhist pastoral counselor,
birth educator, climate activist,
performance and visual artist,
parent and gardener,
I have learned to...
the natural cycles of life
that lead us back to wholeness.
I am here to help you
find your way home to yourself
even when life is hard.

In our sessions
you will learn how to:
Trust your body as your guide to wholeness.
Expand your capacity for being with pain and complexity while tapping into joy.
Dissolve your isolation through creativity and connection with nature.
Reframe despair and hopelessness as portals to wisdom and compassion.
Set loving boundaries and speak with confidence.
As you practice inner listening
you will build skill in shifting
with the world
to centered responsiveness.
You will learn to listen in to yourself
with curiosity, compassion,
integrity and love.
You will find balance by knowing
the center of your being.
The Buddha touched the Earth
as his witness
right at the moment in his meditation
when the illusions or thoughts in his mind
became the most fierce and ugly.
He asked the Earth to be his witness
and when his fingers touched the soil
he knew the truth about the illusions within his mind
and he experienced freedom and happiness.
I believe that at the root of our ability to find happiness is a relationship based in trust.
It is my goal for you to feel safe
to be exactly who you are
in the moment
We begin our sessions
with a guided
meditation so that you can
take lots of time
to discover how you are really feeling
and to orient your senses
to the present moment.
We make space for the
voices in your mind
that may be critical, afraid,
angry and sad
to be heard with compassion.
As you deepen in your listening
you will discover how emotions present
themselves in your body as inner children,
teenagers, and/or as traumatic incidents
that loop in survival mode.
You will learn about your nervous system
and how to ground
and center yourself
through somatic techniques
that help release survival energy,
You will learn how to cultivate
your bond with nature
and your relationships
as resources for healing
your relationship with yourself.
As you cultivate living
in presence with yourself,
your roots will deepen,
and you will naturally rise with joy
to help transform
and heal our world.
I look forward to connecting!
Beth's sessions are held via Zoom
