Craniosacral & Somatic Healing

Somatic Experiencing and Craniosacral Work are naturalistic approaches to trauma resolution which support increased resilience and vitality in everyday life. Sessions can include somatic inquiry, dialogue, and Craniosacral touch. The holistic nature of this process can restore nervous system resilience, connection, and alertness, and address chronic pain and injury. Adult, pediatric, and perinatal sessions available.

Ancestral Lineage Healing

Everyone has wise and loving ancestors. Connect with your wise and well ancestors, through trauma-informed ritual guidance, for healing along your lineages in service of family and cultural repair. Liberating yourself from ancestral debt and burdens supports you to live more fully and purposefully in this life. To learn more about this work, visit Ancestral Medicine.

The most deeply healing, exquisitely loving and sensitive touch I’ve ever experienced.

About Me

I have had the privilege to study with many wonderful teachers over 25+ years. My healing path has wound through extensive bodywork training, Visionary Craniosacral Work, dance, and contemplative movement practice. Somatic Experiencing, Organic Intelligence, and Buddhist study have woven together in my offerings now through touch-based healing and Dharma guidance. 

I have a long-term practice and study of Authentic Movement, Yoga, visual art, activism, and earth wisdom. I enjoy teaching teens, working with youth and queer community, and as a mother supporting other parents. I study with Ancestral Medicine as a practitioner in training, and with my teachers Kittisaro and Thanissara of Sacred Mountain Sangha in the Kuan Yin Dharmas.

My people came to the U.S. as early colonizers from the U.K. and more recently from Ireland and the Netherlands. I’m grateful to live with my family in Sonoma County, CA, and to tend land in community, honoring the ancestors, human and non-human, in all the ways I can.

Sara is a delight to work with! She is highly skilled, very present and an extremely talented bodyworker. She is very attuned and grounded, and I feel very lucky to receive bodywork from Sara on a regular basis.

It doesn’t have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few
small stones; just
pay attention, then patch

a few words together and don’t try
to make them elaborate, this isn’t
a contest but the doorway

into thanks, and a silence in which
another voice may speak.
