Somatic Coaching for Personal Development

       Do your choices reflect your values and what you care about?


There are many perspectives on coaching today, and somatic coaching is the only methodology that encompasses our entire humanness – our body, behavior, thinking, feeling, and spirit – to identify and realize personal  and professional goals.   

Our experiences live in our muscles and tissues. They hold  memories which express themselves as habits, some which serve us while others do not. Through personalized coaching  learn how to connect to and listen to your body’s innate wisdom.

Somatic Coaching will help you to connect to a deeper sense of purpose, clarify the future you desire and develop the skills you need to make this a reality.

A somatic principle is that we are always practicing something, that we are what we practice and we can practice who it is we choose to become.  With this in mind, working with us will help you:

                                         –Identify what you care about                                                                                   

                                         –Choose practices that align with what you deeply value

                                         –Effectively practice who it is you are choosing to become

                                         –Bring it into the world


We see presence as a result of feeling, centering, and attending. More life energy moves through you by feeling your sensations fully, aligning and relaxing your physical body, centering in what you care about, and attending to yourself and others simultaneously.  In other words, the more fully embodied you are, the more present you can be.

Somatic Coaching begins with an initial conversation to assess your goals and intentions. Next you will meet and discuss what actions you need to take, practices you need to develop, and what may be getting in your way of achieving your goals. These meetings can be done in person or over the phone.


         “Our session today touched my heart. This sweet softening only continued when I read this beautiful story(you sent), one I’d never heard. Thank you for your sensitivity, kindness, and skill.  I’m looking forward to our next dive into next steps towards greater visibility.”             Terry M.    Business Consultant                                                                                                                                                      

“For me, this work is a direct way into cultivating the intrinsic trust I’ve been seeking. This unified somatic internal consensus among body-mind-spirit that David has been honing is NVC in motion for me.  It’s opening up a piece of the empathic field that has been out of my reach… one that includes other people & my body, so I’m not afraid of being afraid. So I can start to be free.”
