Workshops and Groups

Here you will find opportunities to utilize the power of working in a safe group to explore and discover new aspects of yourself and your relationships. I have a depth of experience leading groups that are experiential and will engage your body, mind, emotions, and soul. Some of the workshops I co-lead with other healing professionals who I admire and who inspire me.

Women's Workshops

– I have found that many women are longing for a place to talk with other women about life, sex, love, bodies, relationships, and more. These workshops provide that place for anyone identifying as a woman to explore herself with other women.

Groups and Retreats

These are opportunities for men and women to come together, for a day or a week, to replenish, celebrate, learn and grow. Some retreats are for couples, some for individuals. They may be offered at retreat centers around the US or as ongoing groups in Santa Cruz.

Private Couple's Intensives

Like a workshop but just for the two of you. Private intensives offer a focused time to make changes in your relationship or just to reconnect. Intensives can be 2 days to 5 days in Capitola, CA.


– These are expressive dance groups in which we come together to move freely and listen to our bodies. It is a way to process our feelings without talking about them. No dance experience is necessary, this is freeform movement guided by you, the dancer.
