Carrie has been pursuing her fascination of the human body and how it can serve as a vehicle for greater awakening and understanding since 1997. With an extensive professional background in yoga, Pilates, meditation, massage, and women’s health, she offers a deeply informed perspective of the interplay between body and emotion.
Carrie’s approach is relational and engaging, yet also direct. She stewards a clear and compassionate environment in which each person is able to explore their unique strengths and inner resources, as well as struggles or challenges that may prevent them from thriving. Skillfully, she guides clients and students to uncover experiences beyond the mind and unlock the wisdom held both within the body and the present moment. It is here that she encourages students to dwell in the intersection between somatic psychology and spiritual awakening.
Carrie is currently completing her Master’s in Counseling at Pacifica Graduate Institute with a focus on depth psychology and also has recently four years of study in the M.E.T.A/Hakomi Comprehensive Training program; two as a student, and two as a Teaching Assistant. Additionally, she has been trained in Primary Experiential Attachment and Re-Creation of the Self (RCS). She has been a student, assistant, and teacher of Solsara, a practice of interpersonal authenticity, since 2001.
