I’m learning to be my authentic self
…but I didn’t always know who that was
I grew up in a strict Mormon family. While my parents were well-intentioned, my upbringing left me with a lot of shame — shame about my body, my emotions, my natural urges & desires.
I was acutely aware that, according to my community, there were clearly ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ ways to be. But it seemed that a lot of the beliefs & traditions that felt instinctively wrong to me were touted as ‘right’; and what felt true to me was labeled ‘wrong’.
For most of my life, I felt like there must be something wrong with me. I felt disconnected from my body, judged by my community, and segregated from the rest of the world. I felt alone and misunderstood.
Even after leaving the church, I didn’t fully believe I could trust myself or my intuition.
Slowly but surely, I’m learning how to live more fearlessly & authentically through receiving bodywork, reading lots of books, studying & practicing Rolfing, being present, and honoring my feelings.
I want to guide you on your journey towards fearless self-acceptance.
My name is Cam. I’m a bodyworker & educator, and I love helping folks from religious backgrounds regain their sense of connection, love, and trust with themselves & their bodies.
Experience has taught me that embodiment is a critical step on the path towards loving & trusting our selves and cultivating our unique gifts & powers. As we become more aware & accepting of our selves, body+mind, we regain both a sense of freedom and of connection to all.
I know this work can bring up feelings, memories, and deeply-seated beliefs, so I take extra care to foster a safe space for exploration, expression, and learning. My goal is not to diagnose, prescribe, or define your experience, but rather to help facilitate & guide you through your own unique healing process.
I want everyone who struggles with feelings of shame & disconnection to awaken to & embody their unique healing & creative gifts, because I believe that when we find harmony within ourselves, we harmonize with the world around us. And I want to live in that kind of world! Don’t you?
