Founder – SOMA Therapeutics

Hi, I’m Zoe 👋

What I do

I am a Kinesiologist, behaviour change specialist, & intuitive healer who helps high performers unlock their health so they can show up and serve at their highest and best.

My work is a melding of the Western sciences of kinesiology, biomechanics, & behavioural design (our physical and mental realms) and Eastern philosophical and esoteric principles (our realms of soul and spirit). I use movement and the teachings of our body as the access to self, soul, and higher states of consciousness.

I began my work specializing in injury rehabilitation and the management of chronic pain, primarily using therapeutic exercise to address my patients’ concerns. After several years in this field, I began to see the gaps in the service I provided. 

Though an injury or external event may be the initial cause of our discomfort, we can often trace our symptoms and complaints even further back to our patterns. Patterns of movement, behaviour, thought, perception, emotion, action, & inaction. Our patterns are influenced by endless external forces and embodied historical memories.

To change our life and our health experience, we must change our patterns. We must excavate and unravel the habitual actions and conditioned responses that are keeping you stuck. Then we have to consistently show up for ourselves and reinforce the patterns we desire. This is Strategic Repatterning.

Why I do it

I came to this work out of crisis, out of my own rock-bottom experiences after a traumatic brain injury. As I watched my entire life implode around me, as every ounce of control and strength seemed drained from me, I made an important and painful discovery. We don’t live in the world “as it is”. We live in the world we create through our own action, our own ways of being and doing.

It was no longer a question of healing a brain injury, it was a question of who I was going to be, and how I was going to show up. My physical and psychological pain was the impetus for healing far beyond an isolated body area. By stepping into new levels of personal integrity, self-respect, and energetic awareness, I built myself a new reality. I built the life of my dreams, where I get to live in a world of abundance, opportunity, and resilience.

My desire to help others discover this power lit a fire in me that brought me back to life. Since then I have been committed to serving this mission with all that I have. This is truly my life’s work, and I am grateful for every life I am able to touch.

You get to decide what’s true for you. You get to decide what happens for you. And I am here to help you you stand in unwavering conviction and knowing and trust that this reality exists for you. That it’s possible. I’ve got a plan to get you there, and I’ve got your back every step of the way. It’s time to stop playing small.

So, what have you decided?

If you’re ready to make commit to yourself and make lasting change, I’d love to hear from you. I’m currently accepting applications for new clients for 2023.

Outside of my work I enjoy riding motorcycles, playing in the mountains, and spending time in the forest with my family.
