Your body knows the way


Hitting a plateau or a roadblock on your wellness journey?

Are you experiencing; 

  • Tension and stiffness that won't budge

  • Challenges with your breath, sleep or digestion

  • Always in your head, trouble slowing down, constant worry, lack of focus

  • Stuck, lack motivation, keeping yourself small, numbing out. 

  • Yo-yoing between highs and lows 

  • Sense there is 'a piece missing' in your wellness puzzle

  • Have no idea why your body reacts the way it does 

Despite your best efforts (including talk therapy), do you:

  • Repeat patterns that limit your peace and success in life?

  • ​Sense your body might be holding onto chronic stress and unresolved trauma?

  • Desire a body-based, natural approach to resolving your health challenges?

  • Want to address root cause and explore what lies beneath the surface?

I help adults safely explore and process the tension, emotion and sensations stored in their bodies from chronic stress and traumatic life events so they can restore resilience and be present for their lives.

Recent Coaching Client Testimonials

"Thank you so much Joy for guiding me on the right path to healing. After my first session with you, I knew I needed to sign up for more. The trauma I endured as a child stemmed deep and has caused me to feel stuck in my adult life in many ways. It is through your somatic therapy that I feel I finally dove deeper than ever and I now feel I have the tools to tackle the stressors that come my way going forward. I understand that self-healing is a life-long journey and I will continue to make the effort. I am grateful for the work you do and how much you care about others. I have learned so much thank you! " ~ C.M. 

"Meeting Joy has been life-changing for me. Joy is an angel. Her holistic approach is what was missing in my life. She has helped me on my journey of healing from burnout in releasing and regulating my emotions through somatic movement, breath-work and nervous system coaching. Through the Polyvagal and trauma-informed lens, Joy helped me understand how my body is stuck in survival mode and how to relax (tone) my vagus nerve, incorporating various exercises and lifestyle changes to better my health. Thank you Joy for everything." ~ Aya
