What do you enjoy most about practicing SI?

I love getting to help people feel good in their body. Allowing them to return back to their body and find enjoyment there. It is a gift to get to practice this work. So many people in today's world are lost. They live most of their days in a completely disembodied state, that, when asked to check-in with their body, they have no idea where to even begin. This work is a powerful way to invite our clients to return back to their body. Which, in my personal experience and many of my clients, enables us to not only accomplish more, but to experience greater contentment, joy, and confidence

What has been the biggest hurdle in your practice?

Believing in myself. Having enough conviction that I know what I am doing and people should pay me for it. My first year in practice I struggled with this a lot. I was swimming in the abyss of what Rolfing is (still am, but have more stable ground beneath me). I wasn't certain on what kind of results I could give to people and if I really had the ability to create structural integrity in another. Having people pay me the amount I wanted for sessions felt hard, so I gave away free sessions here and there and greatly reduced the 10-Series for my first 3 clients. With time, practice, and support, I can now say I have a strong belief in myself and ask for my rate with much greater ease and non-attachment.

Would you like to share a success story?

One story that always sticks with me is a woman I worked with who teaches at the University of Colorado. She came in after her first two sessions with me and shared a dramatic shift she experienced. The weekend prior, she had been at a conference where she was sharing a few presentations. She is a small framed and short woman, and often, in front of groups felt small, insecure, and like people didn't really hear her or take her seriously. What she shared was this new sense of power, strength, and confidence she experienced while standing at the front of the room, all coming from her body. She said she felt strong and big, and like she was able to present more effectively and was actually heard. Her experience touched me and remains one of my favorite success stories for what gets to be possible from this work in regards to how we show up in the world and how we feel about ourselves.

What makes you or your practice unique?

I blend in one-on-one coaching and small group work for women in my practice. I have found these offerings to be the perfect compliment to my hands-on work and they are allowing me to expand my business in the direction of my longer-term vision. They provide a time for me to connect with the client in a different context where we get to look at mental patterns as well as the emotional energetic patterns in a deeper way and how those may be showing up in the body. I have found the combination to be truly powerful and transformational.

What are your hopes for the profession of Structural Integration?

My hope is that the profession continues to expand and gain credibility across multiple disciplines. I so appreciate and value the work IASI is doing to bring together the different SI schools so that we may learn, grow, and get to have some control over what is being shared about our work.
