By embracing the past,

Through the present,

We can change the future.

For those seeking more vitality, connection, and embodiment… Welcome to Living Bridges.

Living Bridges is a healing modality rooted in the understanding that our essence is connection. We are bridges between past and future, self and other, mind and body, spirit and matter, dreams and reality. Anchored in our own inner wisdom, we work together to cultivate connections that are conscious and life-enhancing.

I am here to support you with:

 Feeling safe and at home in your body
 Consciously preparing for parenthood
 Building and maintaining thriving relationships
 Connecting to the sacred
 Cultivating joy and resiliency
 Working with trauma (birth, physical, emotional)
 Creating a more balanced life
 Increasing your capacity for intimacy

Find out how I can help you come home to yourself

Matthew listened to our stories and offered creative somatic experiences to hold us and wrap us in radical love and acceptance. His methods are unlike any I have ever encountered, I am changed.
