I have worked with people with serious medical issues; my appreciation for what the body holds and what can break it down has become clearer. Through my training and practice as a Core Energetics practitioner I see the unconscious ways our bodies have reacted to childhood trauma/stress. In an important way, Core releases these bodily/physical accomodations to sadness, fear and hatred---the feelings that illicit the most shame and recrimination, often directed at ourselves, complicating intimacy, trust, passion----true connection to ourselves/others. My hope is to assist in releasing negative energy so that you can enjoy your life more fully.
I am honored to have received Reiki II attunement and now offer this method of healing on a fee-for-service basis.
"When we are grounded in the present moment, we feel comfortable in our bodies and at ease in our world. Grounding gives us supreme freedom to choose how we respond to the world, rather than acting from a historical script...." Ann Bradney

Martha Powers's groups

Core Energetics Group

A group for people who are seeking their core selves. Our lives may have a woman/man as our partner, work and kids, or we're single and searching. We all are seeking a firm sense of identity and place in the world. This group focuses on what blocks us from our core self. Past hurts/traumas, negative self-image, fear/anger...the emotions we don't want to have but harm when we hide them. Core Energetics is psychodynamically-based mind-body therapy that releases trapped energy so that we have greater access to ourselves. and our passions.
