through Classical Chinese Medicine & Daoist Sacred Embodiment Practices
I'm Jem, and I help women who are ready and willing to transform trauma held in their bodies (whether that shows up in mysterious physical pain or illness, exhaustion, dysfunctional relationships with poor boundaries, emotional reactivity, fear of intimacy, or feelings of powerlessness and overwhelm), so that they can feel vibrantly healthy, emotionally free, radically self-loving, confident and empowered in their True Essence, with all the energy and tools they need to thrive and co-create the healthy, nourishing relationships they want and deserve — with themselves, their kids, their partners, their communities, and their true purpose in the world!
My larger vision is to co-create a world in which we ALL have the empowering, compassionate support we need to transform sexual, relational, and ancestral trauma, so we can thrive in the radiant Wholeness of our sacred embodiment, cultivate healthy relationships with our bodies, emotions, the planet, and each other, and self-actualize our creative Essences to bring our unique gifts to the world, empowered by Love from Within.
If this appeals to you, book a free phone session to discover the next best, practical steps toward living into your fullest potential with radiant vitality!

When we deeply love, listen to, and care for ourselves, fulfilling our mission and purpose in the world becomes sustainable, and empowers others to live in alignment with their Hearts, Minds, and Essences too, allowing the co-creation of communities in which we all can thrive with freedom, safety, and mutual respect. I am committed to eradicating the stigma and shame of sexual trauma, and to walking the path of healing, spiritual awakening, and self-actualization with women who are ready to reclaim their sexual vitality, activate their Essence, and live in their empowered, authentic Wholeness. To support that vision, I teach women (like You!) the tried-and-true physical, emotional, sacred sexual, and spiritual practices that I've learned from Daoist teachers and developed through my own experiences (within myself and working with clients), to transform trauma and "pathology" into rich compost that nourishes the latent seeds of Your Essence to be able to blossom into your most radiant potential. I meet you exactly where you are on your journey, with compassion, gentleness, and full trust in your unique alchemical process. Together, we co-create safe, sacred space for transformation in group settings and in one-on-one healing sessions.
In the Daoist practices, we learn to transform all kinds of energies into deep nourishment for our Essence and the manifestation of our clear, aligned, loving intentions. Any external substance, experience, or internal emotion can be transformed with the appropriate cultivation, clear intention, and skill. "Gong" translates as "skill" -- the practices of Qi Gong, meditation, and internal Alchemy (Nei Gong, or Inner Skill) all deepen our awareness of our inner world, so that we can become more skillful at transforming what we find there. With this work, we learn to tap into the painful places, so that instead of that energy holding back our creative life force and maintaining dysfunctional patterns, we learn new ways to let it transform what’s stuck and painful, so that it can actually give us more energy -- we can be fully in our power and our strength.Learn more about empowering Trauma Transformation
