Embodiment, pleasure and safety with Sage Hayes

What folks say about working with Sage:

"Sage has a heart as big as the ocean. What more can I say.... she lives breathes walks and talks SE and it is obvious."

"Big fan. Very contagious energy. I felt like it was more than just listening, but also a whole body experience."

"In the 29 years that I've been living with that trauma, I had never felt so safe and held with the experience, I'm still feeling blown away by our session and your ability to be with me. So much gratitude!!!"

"I love working with you. I love your openness and humility and measured thoughtful responses. I'm glad to have you as a kindred spirit on this path at the same time."

"Sage was awesome, l made connections that still surprise me."

"I love how lively and spontaneous Sage is, and really valued the safety aspect for me of Sage's gender queerness. I felt profoundly seen and heard."

"Sage embodies SE in her cells, heart, and beautiful connection and sharing. She is always genuinely interested in what I say and has helpful relevant ideas. She is not in a rush and has no agenda but to share the space and see what arises."

"Provides a lovely and safe container and has a great SE style. Very sensitive to my needs."

"Sage creates such a safe and happy environment, where I feel fully accepted and safe."

Sage offers a unique integrated approach to therapeutic change and transformation. Offering Somatic Experiencing (SE), craniosacral therapy and bodywork. Sage facilitates thoughtful reflection and embodied change particular to each client's intentions.  

Somatic Experiencing, craniosacral therapy and intuitive coaching are favorite modalities in my practice.  Together we identify stuck habits within the body-mind which may not be serving your biggest dreams and desires. We navigate thoughtfully and build on inner coherence while resolving old habits along the way.

Mission of my work:  Thoughtfully support healing individual + collective trauma, foster relational trust and connections, reduce fear and increase peace.  More about Sage's background here.
