Good to meet you!

I'm Megan.

I want to help you THRIVE, not just survive…

MAKING PEOPLE BETTER PEOPLE  MAKES THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE                                  

I am driven by the belief that as human beings, we have the innate ability to heal ourselves, and make a positive impact on the world.¬†To do this we must optimize our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing,¬†which is rooted in ‚ÄúBEing‚ÄĚ well. Unfortunately most of us struggle with simply¬†BEing. We‚Äôve learned to normalize, and value going, doing, multi-tasking, and achieving. This approach to life leaves us feeling anxious, overwhelmed, disconnected, and exhausted.¬†Bottom line: We are human BEings not human DOers. The time is critical that we cultivate¬†BEingness for our individual health, and humanity as a whole.

My own journey began when I was 40, divorced for the 2nd time, unhappy, scared, and lonely. The universe helped me trip into working with a somatic therapist. It was a game-changing experience for me and I’ve dedicated my career to this work ever since. I was practicing as a physical therapist at the time, and had the overwhelming knowing that to truly help people heal, I needed to create a body-centered, mind-shifting, spirit tapping approach. I knew the key to whole self healing was in the body. 80% of the (vagus) nervous system lives in the body, bringing in up to the second information. The problem is that our minds filter this new information through our past experiences, constantly on the lookout for danger, trying hard to help us survive. This is why it’s so challenging to shift our mind with our mind alone!

The Bodywise Approach synthesizes my 34 years of experience as a physical therapist, with training in interpersonal neurobiology, somatic psychology, (IFS-Internal Family Systems, Hakomi, RCS), and nervous system resiliency. I hold certifications in The Resiliency Toolkit, Trauma Release Exercise, Embodiment Coaching, Pilates, and Yoga.

Using the body language of "Authentic Alignment" and other somatic practices, I help clients tap into the wisdom of their own bodies to re-wire their nervous system, dissolve old belief patterns, shift their moment to moment experience, and live in alignment with their truth. 

The body language of Authentic Alignment tells the story that we are worth coming home to, listening to, connecting with, and standing up for. We are expressing to ourselves, (including our ‚Äúyounger me‚ÄĚ), and the world, that we feel safe, connected to our core truth, balanced, supported, and have our own back. This allows us to open our heart, speak our truth, and hold our head high, "showing up‚ÄĚ committed our whole self.¬†I call it taking a "BE ME Break". BE ME is an acronym for our Body, Emotional, Mental and Essence realms of our BEingness.¬†

BE ME breaks help us explore our core truths and our needs, magnifying, and embedding the power of somatic therapy because it wires in a felt sense of safety, love, connection, wholeness, and belonging in our bodies. This quickly down-shifts the nervous system from survival mode to a of state of safety, allowing us to trust our instincts, and live open hearted with courageous vulnerability, curiosity, and compassion for ourselves and others. 

DWELL IN POSSIBILITY....

As human BEings, our super power is to cultivate safety in our BEingness through the body. When we are safe and resourced in ourselves, we not only improve our individual lives, but we become a source of safety, compassion, and connection for others creating a ripple effect in our families, and communities. This is how we create the change we want / need for ourselves, and our collective humanity.

Portland Oregon is my home. Beyond my work, I balance my life as an avid cyclist, live music lover, art appreciator, outdoor adventurer, spiritual seeker, excellent sleeper, home remodeler, and curious connector with everyone I meet. You’ll recognize me by my loving, intuitive, magical companion Fabio, a 9 year old Xoloitzcuintli.

Call To Action

1:1 Coaching

Bodywise Coaching is a body driven,  mind shifting, life changing approach. Through embodied micro-practices, I empower my clients to feel safe, connected, and in alignment with their true self so they can "BE ME". 

 Authentic Alignment is so much more than posture. Its about embodying Alignment with your true self. The body language of aligning gut heart and head rewires the nervous system, and shifts the mindset, creating a sense of safety, presence, and connection to LIFE. 

This work can help anyone, whether you’re looking to feel more empowered in your own journey, be a more effective leader, make deeper connections, or learn skills to overcome anxiety, depression, and let go of held trauma in the body. I wholeheartedly believe we have the power within ourselves to heal, create change and LIVE and THRIVE at our highest potential. 

Connection, safety, and consistency are critical foundations to shifting the nervous system, this is why I work with clients in 3, 6, and 12 month programs. When we agree to work together it's a partnership in healing. Our sessions are 1 hour, but I'm available to text, or call between sessions for support or to celebrate a win! I only take on 15 clients at a time. 

My approach integrates physical THERAPY including hands on release work when in person, and self-release practices when online to unwind chronic systemic holding related to physical, mental, or emotional trauma.
