Why Work with Myka?

Myka learned through her own trauma recovery how important a mind-body connection is to daily life. She speaks with authenticity and compassion, and she brings more than 10 years of training and work with the body and mind, particularly dreams, to her work with clients.

Myka’s passion is helping clients live their most authentic life and leave behind anxiety, difficulty making decisions, or feeling stalled out. Myka’s clients leave sessions with a sense of a forward path, energized actions, and a renewed sense of stability.

Myka works with a combination of somatics, depth psychology, and dream tending to facilitate the body and mind’s innate intelligence to heal and progress in life past obstacles and setbacks.


Dream Tending

Offered via 60 minute Zoom sessions. We will work with a dream or dream image to mine various messages and teachings available. Each Dream Tending session includes gentle, accessible somatic exercises to fully integrate what comes forward.

Somatic Consulting

Offered via 60 minute Zoom sessions. Especially in these turbulent times, people are feeling disconnected from one another and from themselves. Overeating, depression, lack of motivation, stress and anxiety, even feelings of hopelessness can all signify this disconnection. Through gentle, accessible somatic exercises, we work to reestablish the connection between the mind and body to feel more grounded and clear in a confusing world.


Offered via 60 minute Zoom sessions. Designed for teachers, life coaches, trainers, business owners, and anyone who sees giving to others as a part of their life’s purpose. Coaching sessions use somatic consulting specifically for your professional life. We incorporate dream tending, somatic exercises, and goal setting to maximize your service offerings to others.

The Journey

By Mary Oliver

One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
kept shouting
their bad advice —
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
“Mend my life!”
each voice cried.
But you didn’t stop.
You knew what you had to do,
though the wind pried
with its stiff fingers
at the very foundations,
though their melancholy
was terrible.
It was already late
enough, and a wild night,
and the road full of fallen
branches and stones.
But little by little,
as you left their voice behind,
the stars began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own,
that kept you company
as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world,
determined to do
the only thing you could do —
determined to save
the only life that you could save.
