creating something else; it’s about

the process itself

creating who I am.

1:1 Core Energetics Sessions

I offer 1-on-1 Core Energetics individual sessions in Los Angeles, CA (Glassell Park), Walnut, CA, or over Zoom (if you’re not located in Los Angeles, CA).

1:1 Core Energetics sessions offer presence and a safe space to center what is happening for you, to allow your energy to have its full expression in a safe and confidential container, to explore sensations in your body and the geography of emotions and feelings within you. We’ll tap into your deep intentions for your life, to help you explore and own the delicious complexity of who you are,  and support your gifts and flow that desire to emerge from you. We’ll rumble with what gets in the way so that you can make more grounded and informed choices, and have those brave conversations where you advocate for yourself, reveal your vulnerability, and receive your impact.

Often, feelings come up as we face old stories and images, and expand past our limiting beliefs. Feelings are part of our flow, and so welcome in Core Energetics work. Even those dark feelings of anger and fear. Bring them – there’s much wisdom and power trapped within them. And from my own experience, when we don’t engage these darker feelings, our aliveness and our gifts become trapped by them.

A little about what I may be able to help with through Core Energetics work:

  • improving relationships and intimacy with self, loved ones, and colleagues
  • clarifying and enforcing personal boundaries and self-ownership
  • empowering your voice and self-leadership
  • grieving endings and navigating life transitions
  • exploring sides to an internal conflict, such as owning a mixed cultural identity
  • confronting blocks to creativity and flow
  • living more from your heart and pleasure in a grounded and inspired way

If you’re new to Core Energetics, one session may offer a lot by opening a different dimension of experience. However, as many of our patterns were developed over a period of time, Core Energetics work is designed to work gradually allowing for surrendering of defenses and edging into new ways of being and interacting with others. And so best results happen with weekly (or even biweekly) sessions.

My per-session fee is US$125 per Core Energetics session. (I have a few spots available at sliding scale if you can commit to weekly or biweekly sessions – please ask.)

What a Session Might Look Like

Our initial sessions (after any demo sessions) will start with intake, and subsequent sessions may include (but are not limited to) techniques such as:

  • talking
  • tracking sensation and energy flow and blocks within the body
  • breathwork
  • movement to open the body and support body integration
  • use of charge and discharge to open energy flow
  • contacting negative or positive emotions
  • muscle fatiguing and stretching
  • vibrating
  • emotionally expressive work and active interventions which challenge the blocks and armoring in the body
  • subtle techniques, such as exploring shifts in the body or awareness and their effects on feelings
  • vocalizing – from humming to toning to shouting
  • emotional release
  • grounding
  • exploring boundaries
  • role play
  • working with intentions and positive and negative will
  • constellation
  • externalizing the inner geography of conflicts happening in the mind
    touch and hands-on techniques (with your consent)
  • support of Higher Self expression
  • connection to Source

What Core Energetics is not:

  • physical therapy
  • massage therapy
  • athletic training or physical fitness, or a yoga class
  • psychotherapy, talk therapy, or counseling – we do not diagnose, treat, prevent or cure any physical ailment, or any mental or emotional issue, disease, or condition; however I am open to explore working with you in conjunction with your mental health professionals
  • coaching towards specific outcomes, although I do use coaching techniques in my approach
  • strategy, brainstorming, or masterminding
  • religion, although we may explore your concepts of spirituality

Here's the Scoop:

I am a certified Core Energetics practitioner, recently graduated (2019) from The Institute of Core Energetics in NY and under supervision by faculty members at the Institute. While I have a lot of exposure and 5 years of education in this field, I am early in my practice. I plan to continue on-going post-graduate supervision and education through Core Energetics and related trainings. Part of my learning as a an early practitioner will come through working with clients. 

So if you work with me, I would like you to know:

  • I feel really well-supported to introduce Core Energetics to people who are new to this way of working, and support people through this work. I have a wonderful supervisor and have access to faculty members with 20-30+ years of experience.
  • Please communicate with me about what’s working for you and what doesn’t work. And especially where you feel I may have missed you, even if it’s a few sessions later. This feedback is really helpful and may be part of your process.
  • I’m am working out of several different movement and rehearsal spaces, as I build my practice so I can get my own office. Scheduling will take an extra step as I have to see what spaces are available. 

Interested? Yay!

Next Steps

1

Contact me by phone or email to schedule a 20-30 minute intro call. If you desire, please share a little about yourself and why you’re seeking support at this time. I’ll either phone you back or send you a link to my scheduling app, so we can schedule a time an intro call. 

2

We’ll have a 20-30 minute intro phone call where we can get to know each other and you can ask any questions. If it feels right for both of us, we’ll schedule an in-person session. I’ll send you some initial paperwork and a pre-payment link for that session.

3

We’ll have an intro in-person session in Los Angeles (Glassell Park), Walnut, CA, or over Zoom. Before we get too deep into intake and history, I’ll ask you to bring in a topic that is relevant for you, and we’ll work on that to see if we’re a fit.

4

If this is work that you want to continue and I feel I can support your work, I’ll send you a more thorough set of intake forms to complete and we’ll set up the next session. Otherwise, I may refer you to a therapist or more experienced practitioners.
