"Lara has been able to guide me to a point of clarity and forward momentum that has not been achieved by years of counseling. I am absolutely floored by her ability to guide and support me in this way."

DEPTH WORK

I offer holistic, trauma-informed, systemically-focused, and somatically-centered guidance and support for the journey of traveling to the parts of us that are holding our pain and helping to resolve and release what they have been carrying. Together we will discover what needs to be heard, seen, felt, known, and understood in new ways for burdens to be set down and healing to arise naturally of its own accord. Whether you need support with processing and integrating a single traumatic event or complex trauma, transforming habitual patterns that are creating difficulty in your relationships with yourself and others, or connecting more deeply with your sense of self and your life purpose, I bring a quality of attentiveness, presence, and skill to our work together that will help you gain compassion, insight, and wisdom as you navigate your life path and its challenges.

I draw from a range of inter-related healing modalities, practices, and processes (see below) that I have studied and received training in over the last twenty years. Rather than working with any individual modality or technique my approach is to synthesize therapeutic actions and work integrally and intuitively, engaging primarily with the underlying principles that these modalities share. Grateful to be of service on your path.

Sessions are typically 60-120 minutes long and may take place by phone, FaceTime, Skype, Zoom or in-person, depending on each individual. I operate a sliding scale for low incomes and offer my work pro bono when possible to those with severely limited resources. I also offer an initial free 20 minute consultation to talk through any questions you have. Just let me know if you'd like to chat and we can set something up.

I also offer in-person single or multiple day healing retreats
