w/Dr. Rhea Komarek, D.C., RSME (she/her)
Using Applied Polyvagal Theory, Somatic Movement, and the Tamalpa Life/Art Process
Are you moving through some kind of Rite of Passage? Loss of a loved one, parenting overwhelm, major life events, sudden change, perimenopause/menopause, retirement, caregiving/illness of a loved one, approaching empty nesting, preparing to head off to college. These are examples of some of the life changing chapters through which clients have sought this unique structure of support. Let's help give what is happening to you the meaningful context it deserves.
9 Months of Sessions
4X a month for month 1
2 X a month for months 2-6
1X a month for months 7-9
Ongoing sessions for those desiring to keep exploring their life experience through the methods we employ in the Rite of Passage series.
Somatic LIfe Coaching with Dr. Rhea follows an intentional 9 month pathway of polyvagal based learning combined with somatic movement and expressive art processes to connect to one’s nervous system and identify resources for engaging with life as it is unfolding. Sessions build upon one another as clients expand their creative comfort in movement, writing, and drawing as well as their capacity to recognize and work with nervous system states in a befriending way.
In our time together, we will engage in several somatic movement approaches that support the befriending of the nervous system process as you carve out this time for yourself. It’s a little bit like giving life’s pace a few much needed pauses in order to discover what matters to you now, how you need to be supported, and to lend some artistic balm to the moment at hand.
The program sessions are $170/1 hour session. The entire series is purchased one session at a time so that clients always retain the agency to continue or pause at their own pace. Our rate is subject to change, so please text or call to ensure that this is our current pricing. Sessions are offered in person or online. While we have a framework for the pace of how we will move through material together, we will also meet your life and needs as they arise. In the beginning we are building momentum for skill building, change, and rapport. As we grow we are able to pace out appointments with more time in between. Once the rite of passage series is complete, some clients choose to continue meeting for emergent sessions that support them in moving with whatever is arising in their lives.
