Explore the numerous paths to reclamation, healing, and depth empathy processes with somatic coaching.
Reclaim moments when you were overwhelmed by learning to slow down your inner and outer experiences. Mindfully check in with your body by noticing any sensations or impulses in order to experience an attuned and resonate presence. Incorporate Gloria’s guidance, relational neuroscience concepts, and the option to build a relationship with horses to strengthen your internal compassionate self-witness.
Many clients benefit from a flexible mix of equine-led and office-based sessions.
My equine therapy work involves gentle, mutually-respectful interactions with horses from the ground - there is no riding involved, and you do not need any previous horse experience.
Through exploring being in relationship with the horse, we build awareness of our patterns of thought, emotion and action, acknowledge and heal layers of wounding and conditioning, and practice new, more self-loving, conscious, and empowered ways of relating to ourselves and others.
Additonal sessions can be scheduled after your initial session.
The session begins with a brief check-in, and then following body sensations with somatic empathy, to create an experience of resonance and fluidity, learning the deeper truths and longings that lie at the heart of the circumstances, while nurturing the growth of your compassionate self-witness.
When needed, we will move back in time to resolve old trauma. In one-on-one sessions when the client wishes it, constellation work (with or without horses) is also available to support a deepening compassion for the entire family system.
$175 per 55-minute hour for one person (or 85 minutes, or 120 minutes)
$200 per 55-minute hour for two people or for couples work
$85 per person for 3 of more people for family sessions.
(discounts and sliding scale available)
I schedule clients Mondays through Thursdays, from 8am to 4pm Pacific time. I am currently scheduling sessions 2 weeks out. I request 24-hour notice of cancellation, or that you pay for your cancelled session. Other days and times available when needed and scheduled directly with Gloria.
If you are working with single-incident trauma, you will experience a significant shift in reclamation of life energy from just one session.
If the patterns of how you treat yourself are due to unfamiliarity with self-compassion, it takes about eight months of weekly sessions to experience a significant shift. If you have a deeply embedded pattern of self-hatred, then the time period for a significant shift can be about 3-5 years. When combining session with Sound Therapy the time period can be shortened significantly.
Yes. Listen to your body’s wisdom. It will tell you how quickly you can move.
