ALL ABOUT LINDY

Dare to ask for what you want!

It is my great joy to assist you in finding the Permission Zone in your life!

Lindy has been counseling men, women and couples for over 12 years. She is a graduate of the 2-year training at the Hakomi Institute of San Francisco. She regularly leads woman’s groups, and day/weekend retreats (some of which are in collaboration with friend and colleague Marlies Cocheret). She makes her home in Santa Cruz, CA, where she is pioneering the use of Hakomi therapy techniques combined with horseback riding. (See Wind Horse)


With all the rules from our society, our culture, our family, plus whatever emotional baggage we’ve accumulated, we often live as if we do not have permission to be our true selves. We generally aren’t given the guidance of how to listen to our hearts’ longing, and don’t have the tools to get past our self-imposed obstacles, even if we do hear a faint voice from somewhere deep inside us. Isn’t it time to do something about that? Through the process of embodiment we will learn somatically the “felt sense” connection to our inner wisdom!

As we take time to get curious and look within, the mind begins to relax, and our ability to hear the heart’s voice grows in strength. With this wisdom as steady guidance, I offer a variety of ways to bloom wide open into the life you want to live:

Body-centered Counseling

By slowing down and listening to the body we begin to find our inner knowing and develop the mindfulness needed to transform our lives. Through the gentle practice of returning again and again to the present moment the taming of our wild mind begins and Life itself becomes a meditation.

Find out who you really are and in so doing, own the inner permission to simply be. More…

Intimacy Coaching for Men

Practical and compassionate coaching for men of all ages who want more confidence and skill in creating intimate connections with women. It’s all about trusting yourself—women love authentic men! More…

Tantric Education

When we bring mindfulness into the bedroom, we bring a refined awareness to our sexual experience, becoming finely attuned to the wonders of our bodies. By remaining in the moment, without judgment, sex becomes more pleasurable, potent, and loving. Tantra is stepping into sacred relationship with yourself, each other, and the Divine. More…

Wind Horse Mindfulness Training

Wind Horse is a unique blend of Hakomi (a body-centered method of therapy) and horseback riding that helps us find our “seat” in our everyday lives. This work is great for facing fears, relaxing the nervous system, developing focus, and turning inward to listen to your body’s messages. More…

I have had the privilege of working with Lindy for many years. I experience Lindy to be insightful, kind, patient, perceptive, grounded, attentive, gracious and professional, all at the same time. Her ability to touch my soul and help me into a new depth of understanding is amazing.

I came to her to help with my body image and compulsive eating and that my dissatisfaction was deeper than simply to lose weight. My body and my mind were in a state of disconnect. Through Lindy’s help I have been able to connect myself as a whole individual. With Lindy I have been able to connect my body and my emotions. I have become so much more understanding and gentle with myself and others.

In our first sessions I would ‘spin.’ I am now grounded and mindful and can be present for myself in the moment. I have discovered the value of paying attention to my body and thoughts. I feel so much more of my own person now vs. reacting to others. Lindy has taught me how to pay attention to myself and feel the love for my child within.

I recommend her most highly as a therapist and teacher and I have the highest respect for her integrity and skills.

Lindy is a powerful woman, an inspirational leader and an intuitive guide. She creates a space of absolute love and permission to explore, to find your yes and your no, to listen to your heart, be present in your body and true to yourself. She has a way of knowing where the group, and the individuals in the group, are in our experience, and just what to say or do at just the right moment to give rise to insight and expansion. I love her events and try not to miss any of them!

For me Lindy’s introductory Tantra class served as a comfortable place to expand into relaxed intimacy with other interested explorers. She provides gentle instruction as we engage in numerous exercises. It is a safe, pressure free experience that has allowed me to practice staying in-tune to myself as I communicate and interact. I have experienced only positive growth while working with Lindy and I recommend it for everyone!
