Somatic Mental Health


heal your mind through healing your body

Learn the messages of your body & improve your mental health

Affirmations, talk therapy & mindset, oh my!

These are the things we have been focusing on to improve our mental health for many years – and there is absolutely an adequate place for them


We have neglected our bodies in favor of the mind, and our body is what actually heals us from the inside out.

Somatics is understanding the felt sense of your body

The felt sense is associated with our emotions and nervous system – the two primary factors to feeling safe and secure in ourselves and surroundings.

There is wisdom deep within your body, but if the dial is always set towards “safety & protection” we can’t harness this wisdom for growth.

I help you get back in touch with your body, move out of the safety & protection mechanism that’s currently causing increased stress & burnout so you can live a life with ease and pleasure.

What is the felt sense?


The felt sense is the experience your body is having during any given situation. It can be described through sensations of the body.

Your nervous system is designed to protect and alert you to threats – this alert happens through the felt sense.

Under perceived threat, your body will tense and constrict. You may experience changes in breathing, heart rate, muscle tension, and alertness. These mechanisms are great in the moment to help you prepare to protect yourself under threat – but if not discharged once the threat is over, they can cause chronic issues and inhibit your experience with life.

The felt sense is also present during pleasant situations. Arousal of the body can be described in a negative or positive light – enjoyment, happiness, excitement vs fear, scarcity, & overwhelm. Given this understanding, if your body has been under “negative arousal” (protection mode, fight or flight, hyper-vigilance of stressors & threat) then you will likely be limited in your ability to also experience pleasure due to the underlying caution or desire to avoid any experience or arousal at all. In fact, you may subconsciously be pushing pleasures and desires away due to your limited ability to hold space in your body for the level of positive arousal you can experience before shutting down.

Having Ally as my coach feels like an honor. The amount of growth I felt interpersonally in just 6 weeks was more than I had in years of therapy. I learned to reconnect with my truest self and honor my emotions. Learning how to open my heart and listen to my intuition was like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. I have learned to have grace with myself and communicate my needs in all areas of my life. My work with Ally even resulted in the ending of an unsupportive relationship and reconnecting with my high school sweetheart & I’ve never been happier! Anyone looking to meet themselves in a deep and passionate way, would be lucky to work with Ally.

-Lauren, Nurse Practitioner & Health Coach


I can honestly say my work with Ally has been life changing. As a former beauty pageant contestant I struggled for half my life with yo-yo dieting, obsessing over food, resulting in criticism of and disconnection with my body. As a result, I was missing out on all the pleasures in life for fear of gaining weight. Now, I finally feel freedom when it comes to how I view food, feel connected to my body, and am enjoy all the feminine pleasures. I no longer obsesses over carbs and calories and know how to choose foods that nourish and fuel my body. I am forever grateful for her and this program for giving me the opportunity to know how to love myself again.

-Jean, Dental Hygeinist

My work with Ally has been tremendous. I started with Ally feeling a bit depressed, lethargic, and footy brained. She allowed me to think more positively about my body, life, and journey through health and has taught me how to listen to my body and not overwork myself. She has a way of getting you to think differently and positively about the journey you are on and the potential she sees in you. She is a very genuine and warm person to work with and made my health transition easy.
