In-Person Offerings

To know oneself is to study oneself in action with another person.

Somatic Mentoring Program

Do you want to catalyze movement in your life so you can live the life you really want in 2018?

Join me for a brand new Somatic Mentoring Program I am launching this year!

What does it entail and how does it work?

  • During 2 private somatic enrichment sessions each month (in this 6-month module), you will receive individualized reflections and coaching to help you get traction on your life path.

  • You will be guided into foundational somatic practices as well as receive customized practices to evolve your embodiment so that you can hone your ability to relate to yourself and others with clarity and grace.

  • An interdisciplinary approach brings awareness to the different parts of you that help or hinder you so you can optimize your whole self, supporting you to align your life with your heart and align with your life.

  • Participate online via video on Zoom or Skype.


Are you ready to totally ROCK 2018? If so, reach out to me soon. I'm here as your ally.


Schedule a FREE Exploratory Interview to see if the program is a match for you.

The abundance of life is always present.
When we recognize it, it opens our consciousness...and it comes flowing in mind and body with a mighty, quickening, a healing power that renews, transforms and changes.
Charles Fillmore
Individual Sessions


My purpose is to support my clients to move through their lives with greater clarity, kindness, and ease. I assist them in cultivating the ability to skillfully respond to life’s challenges and gifts by taking simple, direct, mindful actions. Living in this way supports a life of peace and freedom.


My individual, couple, and group sessions offer a depth of somatic expertise and psycho-emotional training which when combined with a steady presence creates a safe container in which you have the opportunity to access the wisdom of your heart and land in your body as a deep resource. It is in this way that the body becomes a vehicle for healing, unwinding and deeper connection with self.


Modalities I use in sessions include:

  • Psycho-spiritual counseling, a unique counseling modality in which we honor and attend to the entire body-mind-spirit continuum.

  • Mindfulness training, which means being at choice rather than being wedded to ingrained habit patterns.

  • Embodiment, to feel at home in yourself, in your body and connected to the silence that lives inside us all.

  • Transformational hypnotherapy, to engage the subconscious mind and experience dramatic changes in your life


You will receive gentle assistance so that your body can unwind and you can let go of what is no longer serving you.  I will teach you how to train your mind and body so that you are living in a healthy and balanced ecosystem, one in which you will thrive on the level relationships, career, and health. 


We meet in a safe space so that you can experience deep and sustainable transformation. I guide and support you so that you are able to access your full human potential and live a life where you can discover a fluid balance and an ease of being. Are you ready to thrive?

Embodying the Feminine
Women’s Group
(San Francisco Bay Area)

You are invited to join us as we enter into the 9th Cycle of the Embodying the Feminine Women’s Group which is facilitated by Padma Gordon.

Padma has been leading the group for the past 8 years and brings her love of mindfulness, embodiment, dance, prayer and celebration to the table. Her path as a spiritual counselor, movement teacher and lover of life sets the tone for a deeply nourishing and fun container in which to grow into your most divine goddess self.


During this 13 moon journey we gather once a month to be in sacred space together. It’s a chance to “meet by the water hole” and share ourselves, our dreams, our herstories, our fears, our joys and our sorrows. It is an opportunity to consistently connect with a richly diverse group of women who are committed to personal growth and evolution. Meeting deeply creates lasting bonds--friendships that last over time.  


In a safe space, you will have opportunities to be witnessed as you speak, move and express yourself authentically. We will meditate together, sing and share our hearts. You are invited to come as you are. Together we will explore issues that are relevant to you as a woman in our culture and in our world now.

* Heal patterns of comparison and competition

* Break old patterns of self-criticism
