About this pro

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

To see how people progress and then leave me again. I like to see my client improve. Most somatic trauma work can be completed within a few months. Life coaching should not last the rest of your life either...

    professional erotic massage that felt safe and appropriate at all times. Ben was compassionate, patient and showed care at all times by moving slowly and communicating continuously with me. Highly recommend this experience for anyone with a history of physical or sexual trauma

    Ben is the perfect guide for self-exploration and realization. His calm and nurturing demeanor coupled with his ability understand how to direct a session makes for a very well rounded and fulfilling experience. He was able to make someone who was hesitant to really explore a part of my life I was insecure about to feel safe and a comfortable to the point I made a significant breakthrough in just one session. Right away, you get a sense that he really cares and is there to help and support you through any issue or self-improvement. His intuitiveness at times even makes you realize other issues you may have buried deep within yourself that you didn’t realize you were hiding from even yourself. I would highly recommended Ben to anyone looking for direction in various aspects of their life or someone looking to breakdown the barriers one imposes upon themselves.

    Ben is an amazing spirit. His almost child-like enthusiasm for life and his passion for his work made me instantly feel more confident about my own life and our work together. He has a very gentle style, and made me feel safe when I was expressing fear and sadness with him. And he also has a strong directive ability, and was able to guide me out of a negative loop I had been in for a long time. Sometimes he uses the archetype of the prankster to evoke dramatic shifts in perspective, or to bring out an underlying truth or hostility that needs unpacking. I highly recommend working with Ben!

    Ben is imbued with an innate, absolute, core standard of integrity and intuitive empathy - crucial to the intimate and loaded nature of the complicated and challenging sexual issues driving me since boyhood, when i was used for sex by an adult family member: compulsive masturbation, relational avoidance, chronic, self-generated retraumatization. I trusted him at once, implicitly, with everything that was ready and crying out to me for my attention. He helped me very much.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
The last certificate program I attended 2014 at the IASHS in San Francisco to learn more about somatic sex education and trauma work with people suffering from sexual abuse. Somatically, I learned how to conduct scar tissue remediation after an episiotomy and other scarring which commonly occurs, but remains untreated after giving birth.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
You can either pay by the session, or you can buy a package deal. Schedule a free 30 minute session with me in which I can explain more, and check my website for more information.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
My own deficiency in social areas combined with my line of work as an actor on TV led to a breakdown. Eventually I realized that I have a talent to serve and support other people in their personal transformation process.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
See if there is a connection between you and the counselor. Does they create something with you, or do they simply let you talk? And see if the counselor/life coach/therapist finds ways to physically engage you. Somatics can fast-forward your process.
