Hi, I’m Nancy

I am an embodiment specialist, teacher and catalyst for change. Over the past 20+ years, I’ve worked with over 40,000 individuals and facilitated thousands of transformational groups. I support sensitive souls and intellectual types to align and integrate the mind, body, and heart, creating a balanced connection to strength, clarity & joy like never before.

I believe one of the best conversations you can have is with your own body, once you know how to be present and deeply listen to the guidance from within. I’ve seen again and again how mastering these skills transforms more than the health of your body. It transforms all of your relationships- to self, to others, to loved ones, and beyond.

As a sensitive soul from birth, I navigated a rocky path with major health challenges and a struggle to connect with others. Labeled as shy, overly sensitive or socially awkward, it turns out my incredible healer’s sensitivity was untrained for this fast paced world. 

Childhood illnesses and hospitalizations shaped my early years. Well-meaning advice from doctors often missed the mark. I grew up as a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) in a world that had little understanding of the depth of sensitivity.

Relationships were a puzzle as an empath and for most of my life I felt as if I never truly belonged anywhere. Feeling disconnected from community, relationships and my own body I began to believe I may be better off alone. Yet a deeper part of me knew that we are social creatures, meant to have healthy bodies and relationships. I knew there must be something more than living in a body that was dis-eased, and staying closed off from others out of a false sense of protection.

A major breakup & health crisis in my mid 20’s sparked my deep dive into alternative healing, studying ways to transform the health of my body and relationships. I started by restoring alignment & strength in my physical body to eliminate pain and move freely. I healed myself from adrenal fatigue and leaky gut, and also began the deeper process of healing attachment trauma. 

As an empath, I learned how to stay open in connection while staying true to myself. How to get out of my head and feel my body. The ability to feel and express my needs & desires in a healthy way. And how to set clear boundaries and lovingly reinforce them as necessary. 

During this process it occurred to me that so many of us were never taught these valuable tools so I began to offer workshops and programs to guide others in mastery of these skills. Now, for more than 20 years, I have supported thousands to do the same, curating sacred spaces for true belonging, to stay aligned, connected, and embody more joy.

My values—Freedom & Transformation, Connection, Sacredness, Play, Health, Integrity, Attunement, Sustainability, and Coherence—drive my mission. 

I bring Grounded Presence, Empowerment, Wisdom, Embodied Intimacy, Deep Listening, and Nurturing, No B.S. Reflection to our journey together.

If you’re ready to embrace transformation, connect with your body, and cultivate embodied intimacy, I invite you to join me. Let’s co-create a space where your unique essence thrives.
