"I have a deep curiosity, and passion for supporting people to heal, change and thrive. My authentic presence, life experiences and creative spirit provide safety and ease for others. When we feel safe, we relax, and then we can find true connection; to ourselves, to each other, and possibly to something larger. This builds body, mind, spirit resilience, and changes how we think and feel. Inevitably this leads one to a more fulfilling, and meaningful life."
"I draw upon the foundations of Somatic Experiencing (SE), Music, Dance, Yoga, Community Building and Self-reflection to offer profound one-on-one sessions, workshops, classes and concerts."
Luna settles in the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina with her husband Joshua, and their two beautiful daughters.

(For Empowerment and Creativity)
Luna offers one on one somatic experiencing sessions in person or on zoom. Somatic Experiencing TM (SE) was developed by Peter Levine, Ph.D. to help people heal and thrive. It is a gentle, and effective approach to healing trauma and finding more ease in everyday life.
Luna offers one on one and small group music sessions. These sessions are designed to empower and inspire creativity through learning to play an instrument, singing, or offering music in the classes you teach. Each session is designed to uniquely meet you at your skill level.

Luna offers weekly classes around Asheville, NC. She also offers 200 hr and 500 hr TT modules that she teaches around the Eastern US. She is available for one on one yoga sessions as well as group yoga sessions.
Women's Work &
Luna has a deep passion for empowering all those who identify as women. She offers an online, weekly women's group called "When Women Come to Pray". She also offers a variety of retreats, local and international, throughout the year for women.
"Through my SE sessions with Luna, I gained a deeper knowing of my nervous system and increased awareness of how reactionary cycles manifested in my body. Luna's kind spirit allowed me to feel safe and held while gently guiding me through each sensation and emotion. As a result of our work together, I find myself able to observe and move through uncomfortable trauma cycles with more ease and presence. Her experience as not only a facilitator of but also a recipient of SE therapy allows her to share and demonstrate the benefits of SE work in a way that is relatable and genuine. Luna radiates authenticity and love, which helped me to really show up and be open to discovery in a vulnerable dynamic."
-Kristyn, age 30
Luna holds a solid, bright and generous presence for my body's own process to unfold. Without imposing an agenda, she has been able to follow the trajectory of a sensation to a reliable resolution. I have kind of been in awe! As someone who does a lot of their own body-based movement practice, I am even more profoundly grateful to discover a new solidity, reliability and alliance with my body, and am learning a new capacity to be present for myself in the midst of turbulence.
Jeri, Age 27
Thank you, Luna, for offering SE to me. It really dovetailed with the course I've been taking on listening to my soul. It relates to the wisdom that is within us, if we listen. Your guidance during our sessions was very sensitive and attuned to moments when I could explore parts of myself that I was not aware of. I could recognize old feelings that still held some influence over how I interact with the world today. Recognizing them gave me a certain freedom, and new options. It is really fascinating the connection of our body with our experiences. I enjoyed your sense of humor and compassion. Yes, acknowledging personal trauma liberates, not only oneself but offers a bit more freedom to all of humanity. Thank you for your kind and generous work.
