Hello and welcome!
"It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a sick society." -Jiddu Krishnamurti
Please note that I have let go of my psychotherapy license as I am going in another direction with my work. You can learn more on my new website here.
Life is hard. It is also beautiful and rich with complexity.
At times, we find ourselves stuck and overwhelmed, confused and fearful, angry and in grief. It is human to struggle, and we all need support in navigating life's challenges and healing our wounds. Many of our struggles are symptoms of living in a stressful, fast-paced world. We are also impacted by generations of cultural and familial conditioning.
My intention is to offer a soft place to land in a crazy world. I see each session as a ceremony. We take time to ground into being and see what arises in the somatic field. This work is sacred. The pacing is slow. The tone is gentle.
I work with people who are interested in being more compassionate with themselves and who long to unearth the trans-generational, cultural, and historical trauma that operate unconsciously looking for resolution.
You are encouraged to take what works and leave what doesn't.
I am deeply honored when people open up to me and share their struggles and I am committed to supporting people in becoming more fully human.
My name is Alicia. I have been consciously practicing the breath for 20 years in my personal and professional practice, using it as a tool to support clients with symptom mitigation and root level healing.
As a mother, human, yoga therapist, psychotherapist, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and most recently trained to facilitate Psychedelic Somatic Interactional Psychotherapy- I work with people as multidimensional beings to support liberation as a practice of unbecoming ourselves.
I combine Somatic Experiencing with breathwork to build a bridge between the subconscious and conscious mind - the implicit and the explicit - allowing longstanding patterns to emerge and be supported, held and felt in a new way - in relationship with the loving witness and the vast web of relations.
My work emerges from the intersection of science and spirituality as I weave modern science with ancient practices to create 30 minute daily practices that draw from quantum physics, Vedic philosophy, Chinese medicine, Buddhism and my direct experience with trees, fungi, bull frogs, and many other sentient beings that walk my path with me.
I have been offering a breathwork class that has been running live, daily on zoom since 2021. I also teach practitioners how to harness the breath for liberation and healing and I provide somatic based therapy (with and without psychedelics) and individualized breathwork sessions to harness the breath for personal and collective liberation.
I am committed to regenerative practices, local community resiliency and loving ourselves and each other back to wholeness as an act of collective liberation.
