Jamie’s approach combines experiential, somatic, introspective, and expressive modalities to understand and transform experiences of death, dying, loss, and trauma.

It is one of the most profound honors of my life to have people trust me with their deepest wounds and to share their journey of courage. This journey of grief, loss and heartbreak is one of the ways we call ourselves back home. My clients have taught me that grace can cradle grief after all, and that warrior work can be an open heart.

“Embrace your grief. For there, your soul will grow.” – Carl Jung


Transpersonal psychology is a humanistic approach to therapy which values wholeness, play, wonder and the journey of being human. Transpersonal psychology addresses all aspects of our being, spiritual, social, intellectual, emotional, physical and creative to help us heal and grow. The word “trans” in transpersonal means to move beyond the self-identity or ego into an embodiment of a larger empathetic view of humanity, the world, life and the collective unconscious.

By doing this, a person can hopefully incorporate one’s personal goals, life path, sense of awe, wonder, play and spiritual being into daily living. The ultimate resource for this philosophy is to utilize an individual’s need to feel whole and awakened to the larger wisdom of the universe.

Somatic Movement

Move Your Soul!

What if your body felt…strong, free, beautiful, worthy, playful and alive? How might your life be if you understood and had choice points around how and when to access different parts of your nervous system? What would happen if you were able to feel the connection between thoughts and the body’s reaction? How might it be to feel safe in your anger, joy, silliness, sadness, anxiety and play? How might it feel to be with others in our shared humanity?

In Somatic Movement we explore the experience of being human and living in a body, mind and soul through a variety of movement practices, nervous system science, intention, music, mindfulness exercises, imagination, metaphor, yoga, play, dance, breath, earth wisdom and intuition. Each class will have a specific theme/focus and variety of evocative music, from instrumental to vocal, spanning many genres (world music, indie, classical, experimental and popular music.)

This is a practice that focuses on learning the authentic wisdom of the body to assist with holistic healing and making room for the nervous system to settle. Honoring the body as a tool to higher awareness can allow emotions, sensations and imagery to surface in a safe, holistic way and old patterns and energy blocks may find a place to shift. This is a chance to have a more conscious and embodied relationship with yourself.

The Pińon Tree has always been a landing place for my spirit, reminding me that heart roots can thrive in the most unexpected ways, on the edge of the unknown.


Somatic therapy literally means therapy which pertains to the body. Working within this somatic model, individuals focus on learning the authentic wisdom of the body to assist with a one’s healing process.
