~ A Mindful Approach To Chiropractic & Somatic Experiencing ~

Welcome to my practice!

I have over twenty years of experience providing patient-centered wellness care and injury rehabilitation. In my office, emphasis is placed not only on the physical aspect of a condition, but on its emotional components as well.

My practice style often incorporates Somatic Experiencing and aspects of Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga that I have adapted for chiropractic. Both of these modalities can be described as embodied, “bottom-up” approaches to working with nervous system dysregulation and trauma. I also provide acupuncture which can be very helpful for regulating the nervous system and supporting chiropractic treatments.

An important part of my work involves helping patients develop an interoceptive (internal felt sense) connection to their bodies. With increasing interoceptive awareness, patients will often experience increasing capacity to listen to their body’s needs and increasing capacity for taking effective action in relation to those needs. Often, we will then see improved capacity for self-advocacy and improved health and treatment outcomes long-term.

I currently live and work in California while maintaining a practice in Minnesota. In my Minneapolis office, located on Dakota and Anishinaabe land, I provide chiropractic sessions as well as individual and group Somatic Experiencing sessions. My California practice, located on Ramaytush Ohlone (Chiguan tribelet) land, focuses specifically on providing individual and group Somatic Experiencing sessions. I am not currently providing chiropractic care in California.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about my practice, about the services I offer and about how I might be able to help you. I maintain relationships with many great healthcare and healing practitioners located throughout the Twin Cities metro area. If I’m not a good fit for you in meeting your goals, I am more than happy to refer you to someone that is.

Thank you,
