Somatic Wisdom

My clinical work supports individuals to get in touch with the lived experience of the body, as it pertains to healing, personal development, and relationship success. My approach is theoretically holistic and I have been most inspired personally and academically by somatic and relational psychotherapy. My mission is to help people feel more embodied and alive.


I integrate clinical and intuitive knowledge to support body-mind-spirit integration and whole-body improvement. My healing work addresses physical, spiritual, and emotional symptoms with equal care and consideration. Your health is important to me and I am your advocate for self-care.


I work best with those inspired by transformation and motivated to have a meaningful life. My goal is to be your healing guide to assist you to show up more fully and spaciously. I work well with intelligent individuals seeking to make a positive impact in the world, and those wishing to manifest a more creative and compassionate human experience.

Romi is one of those rare and special people who inspires you to want to be and do better. From the moment I met her and took her first Yoga class I sensed her special energy. She has a way of making me more conscious of my own physical and emotional well-being and that precious need to just be. In both her Yoga and her Massage she has awakened and enlightened my spirit.
