My Mission

To support you through a dynamic, transformational and evolutionary personal growth process that creates

mindful conscious choice,

heartfelt connection and embodied vitality.  

Hi! I'm Kerry.

As a kid, I was very aware of two things: my emotions and my body. Often sensing the spontaneous impulse to move my body, I had always felt calmer, physically grounded, and mentally sharper, when I had. Little did I know, that as an adult I would be facilitating somatic exercises (therapeutic work that encourages physical movement while simultaneously focusing on expanding your internal awareness) with others.

 

As I got older, I often found myself attracted to the Self-Help/New Age section of the Barnes & Noble Bookstore, reading collections from Iyanla Vanzant, Louise Hay, Dr. John Gray, Karen Casey, Dr. Wayne Dyer, among other inspiring teachers. These teachers along with a psychotherapist sparked my interest in spirituality, healing and co-active (life) coaching; these were aspects that would fuel the work I do today.

In later years, I found myself practicing Hatha Yoga with Rodney Yee on DVDs and Kundalini Yoga at a local studio.  I became more and more interested in the healing power of yoga and pursued Baptiste Power Yoga trainings as well as Hatha & Vinyasa trainings; at this point, I was starting to feel the power of embodiment.

My Vision

For you to embody the inspiration + freedom to live your heart-aligned truth into the world with clarity, empowerment and joy.

It was after yoga training that I committed to furthering my traditional education in healing modalities and enrolled in a Holistic Counseling graduate program. Since then, I have completed post-graduate clinical work and continue to expand my skillset. I am currently in my third year of a somatically-based certification training called Core Energetics, which encompasses the energetic, emotional, spiritual, mental and physical aspects of personal growth + development; all of my interests wrapped into one modality! 

Today, I integrate all of my experiences and offer bodymind therapies to help others who might also be on a healing journey. When we work together, I will hold your life’s story with tenderness, be someone who sees your potential even when you don’t and set a continuous intention to be a supportive guide along your path of self-discovery. So, if you are feeling curious about what this might look and feel like, reach out for a Discovery Session by clicking on the button below!

 

 

And, if you are someone who likes to see credentials first, here they are…I hold a Master’s Degree and a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in Holistic Counseling from Salve Regina University, from which I have also completed select courses from the Creative + Expressive Arts Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies. I am a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) through the Co-Active Training Institute, an International Coaching Federation accredited institution and a Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance. Additionally, I have also been influenced by The Hakomi Method, Internal Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychology of the Chakras, Gestalt Therapy and Mindfulness.

As a mental health counselor, I was awed how through direction, observation, and gentle questioning, she was able to see things that were not in my consciousness.
