Beth's therapy practice is dedicated to sharing powerful transformational tools that help to dissolve and transmute symptoms of mental and physical dis-ease.
Beth believes that the wisdom of the body (natural law), housed in our very own DNA and cellular structure, provides the pathless path into balanced states of focus, gratitude and enthusiasm. Getting in alignment with our unique path is a courageous intention and choice that benefits all. Many times our journey begins with following and listening to uncomfortable symptoms that are trying to get our attention.
Mindfulness, embodiment and spaciousness for "what is" are the tools that Beth practices and shares with individuals and groups who seek a more harmonious experience within themselves and with their world.
