I can help you speak in a language that will land deeply in your bones. I can help you get a conversation started where no one is to blame, and no one needs to be fixed.
There is no denying being human and having feelings is hard. It makes sense that we might ignore or try to avoid the bigger sensations we experience in our bodies when things get tough.
But when the body gets ignored, it doesn’t forget and reset; it will wait to talk with you until its voice is heard. And if that day doesn’t come, it turns up the volume until it is heard. By this point, it’s no wonder we feel disconnected or even on separate teams.
But actually, your body is just doing the normal thing that bodies do. It’s been on your team this whole time, simply waiting for a good conversation and a way to re-connect.
Don’t know where to start? That’s where I come in. I can help you speak in a language that will land deeply in your bones. I can help you get a conversation started where no one is to blame, and no one needs to be fixed. Repair your most important relationship--with your body.

I am thrilled I found Amy and had the opportunity to work with her! I think everyone needs to do this kind of movement work, it is freeing, new, fun, interesting and sometimes even challenging. I learned to give attention to parts of me I hadn't in years... or ever! I learned so much in the month or so we worked together. Highly recommended, thank you Amy!
Somatic Self Compassion Coach
I’m an intuitive listener, a creative collaborator, a truth-teller and skillful synthesizer. I blend my experience in somatics, rehabilitative exercise, trauma informed movement, pilates and expressive arts, to give you a unique experience that will help transform your relationship with your body.
I created this work because I saw the gap between exercise and therapy that needed to be filled. I share my knowledge with you, being mindful that your experience of learning is nearly as important as what you learn.
Befriend Your Body is a multi-sensorial approach centered around three main areas of attention: sensation, perception and connection. The work is non-dogmatic, outside fitness, judgement free and welcomes every body. We don't talk diet but we do talk about how diet culture and the "ideal body" can make it harder to love our own body.
