Very often, our difficulties come from the fact that we lack tools to distinguish the part of ourselves that reacts to events: is it the injured child of yesteryear, or the adult that we are today? Is our family system speaking through us? Is it our mind, to whom we have given so much power that we cannot go against his beliefs?
Learning to discern the part of us that really suffers and to deal with it, as well as to separate what belongs to us and what has been passed on to us, is a necessary step on the road to self-knowledge. When we do it, we take care of our own needs, which alleviates our relationships and frees us from any outside expectation.
Each person is different. My goal is always to support your healing process, as well as your ability to be rooted and find a harmonious place in your world, whether personal or professional.

Craniosacral therapy realigns the person in their innate axis, unwinds the connective tissues (fascias) which keep the memory of traumas, and creates space around a pathology or problematic. It is particularly indicated to restore mobility after an accident or an operation and to relieve chronic pain. This work also helps emotionally, mentally and spiritually as it allows the system to reorganize itself coherently at every level.
Our body heals itself all the time and there is a way to touch it, to be with it, to listen to it, to support this healing process. There are also specific frequencies and vibrations that generate a healing movement, both in the physical and energetic body.
Science has recently demonstrated the effects of sound vibrations on the structure of water. Our bodies are mostly composed of water, and sound therapy has a significant effect on our health and well-being. Integrating the notion of energy and resonance into our daily lives, far from being a vague new-age fashion, concretely helps to improve our resilience against aggressions from the outside world.
The combination of a vibratory approach with physical work can relieve pain, depression, chronic fatigue, stress, sleep disorders, digestive problems, anxiety, as well as many other conditions.

In the case of Family Constellations, first introduced by Bert Hellinger, we can inquire into what might be at the origin of a certain pattern in the person's life, and sometimes find resolution, both for the seeker and their family system. While scientists have found that trauma could be inherited through genes, family constellations facilitators have known for years that a trauma or exclusion in a family system could have dire repercussions for several generations of descendants. Family constellations provides us with a way to restore the flow of love and inclusion in a family, and to graciously accept what is and recognize our life for the gift that it is. It is a work of the soul, that can have profound resonance and effect for the seeker, and present them with a new vision of their "family myth".
Constellations can also be used to look at things that may be impeding any system from functioning at its best. It is of invaluable help when looking at organizations and how to optimize them in a way that is sustainable for all their departments. One could also use constellation to look at the different aspects of their private practice or business and get information about what may be the perfect balance for them. Artists can use constellations to explore their relationship to creativity, money, or any systemic block in their family system that might prevent them from thriving in their chosen profession.
Nature Constellations, as introduced by Francesca Mason Boring, are an amazing tool to look at any kind of environmental issue, like informing land use, energy choices, sustainability choices, working with pets, supporting real estate transactions, reconnecting with the land of our ancestors vs the land of immigration, etc... It is a rich tool towards returning our membership in Earth Community.
You can chose to do this work individually or in a group. The group offers the advantage of having people stand as representatives for the different elements or relationships you want to look at, and they often offer a wealth of information. I organize workshops regularly, you can find the information for the next one on the Events page. In an individual session, we will use visualization, objects or sometimes standing yourself as a representative in order to explore the dynamics that are impeding you. It is a good way to get acquainted with the work and see its potency first hand.
If you are interested in reading more about constellations, you can find a list of book references in the Resources section. You can also read this great article about Mark Wollyn's book, It didn't start with you, or this article about my work in constellations in NYC.
Many of our difficulties in adulthood come from events we have experienced as children. This wounded child lives in our body, and reacts violently whenever a situation reminds him of the initial injury. However, this is not inevitable.
There are tools to meet and learn to take care of our inner child and to meet our own needs instead of seeking healing outside of us. When we manage to do this, it becomes easier to cope with life without being steadily re-immersed in the emotional wounds of the past.
On the other hand, our mind has sometimes created limiting beliefs to protect us. Although they are no longer relevant, we continue to make choices based on these beliefs, while we could replace them with a much more encouraging inner speech! Although they’re quite powerful, some simple tools usually help to overcome them.
As we live in a world of energy in motion, we sometimes feel weighed down or influenced by resonances that do not belong to us. It is then a question of learning how to manage one's empathy and to "let go" what is not ours to regain our sovereignty.
The intention of this aspect of the work is to recreate a unified being, free to make choices in the present without being torn between different aspects.
