Aloha, I'm Liz.
Somatic Coach, Yoga Teacher, TRE® Provider, Safe & Sound Protocol Provider and Founder of the Primal Alchemy Method.
For much of my life, I felt stuck physically and emotionally trapped in a trauma loop that left me anxious, overwhelmed, depleted and numb. Our of necessity, I learned about trauma's neurobiological impact on the body and mind and discovered somatic practices that allowed me to heal, prosper and thrive. I was able to break free from crippling anxiety, completely reverse a panic disorder diagnosis, and take back control of my life.
Today, I help people reclaim their mind-body health and alchemize trauma into resilience and healing using the Primal Alchemy Method.
I use a combination of somatic practices, including trauma-informed yoga, Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE®), the Safe & Sound Protocol, mindfulness, breathing techniques, and the science of behavior change to support people in taking meaningful action toward their wellbeing and healing.
Imagine if you could...
- Learn mind-body tools to help you relieve anxiety and panic attacks naturally.
- Release deep muscular patterns of tension, stress, and trauma from your body using simple and powerful somatic techniques that address the places where trauma gets stuck and stored.
- Learn practical tools to regulate and befriend your nervous system.
- Create an embodied sense of safety, connection and resilience.
- Gain tools to help you sleep more soundly and have more energy.
- Take meaningful action toward your wellbeing and healing by learning a research-backed method of behavior change called Tiny Habits.
My Coaching Method
My coaching is based on the fundamental principle that the mind and body are inextricably linked. Stress, anxiety, and trauma are not just “in your head” – they are stored in your body. I empower you with tangible tools to physically release tension, stress, anxiety, and trauma, so you can chart a path forward toward safety, connection and healing. We work to help relieve your symptoms by addressing the root cause in a compassionate space. These are the three main pillars of my coaching method...
Somatic work emphasizes the experience of the physical body and taps into the body’s innate ability to release tension, stress, anxiety and trauma. I use a variety of somatic tools including TRE® Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises, trauma-informed yoga, primal movement patterns, and other somatic techniques to help re-tune the nervous system, restore vagal function, and support physical and emotional release and reconnection.
I work with clients to develop mindfulness practices to help radically reduce stress, improve focus and clarity, build emotional regulation and resilience, and support a state of flow and connection, so you can engage more fully in life. Mindfulness tools include breath awareness, learning how to track nervous system states, and meditation techniques to help rewire your brain and support you in feeling grounded, present, and adaptable.
I support my clients in taking meaningful action toward their wellbeing and healing by teaching a research-backed method of behavior change called Tiny Habits. Created by Stanford behavior scientist, Dr. BJ Fogg, Tiny Habits is a life-changing method of behavior transformation that empowers people to easily create new habits without relying on high motivation or willpower. It is a titrated approach that helps clients feel successful.
In a one-on-one coaching session, we may use a combination of one or more of the tools and practices below to support your nervous system's ability to find safety and learn self-regulation.

Liz gave me what I've been needing all my life and resolved what kept me stuck for the last 8 years. Two sessions with her did much more than one year with a life coach. I was instantly drawn to her openness and transparency. Even after just our introductory session, I figured something out that had puzzled me for years. I am so unbelievably grateful I found her. She gave me back my life, but it's more than than that .She gave me pieces of life I'd never had before.
Thank you so very much for doing the work in the most gentle way possible. The space you held for me every time I met you was elegant, kind, comfortable, and very safe. I want to tell you that I'm especially thankful for you for giving me the time to explain about my culture, my religion, and country and how all of this played an important role in my story. You always held the space with respect and grace. It touched my very, very depth. It moved something major within me. I can't describe it enough. It was real. The most real experience I've been through. Liz, I never felt safe enough to reveal myself (completely) before someone's eyes , and I have never been in someone's presence without feeling some level of shame of who I am or what happened to me. What you offered is truly priceless. To sum it up in three words: I found me.
