Colin Phipps, DC enjoys working with the entire family and takes special delight in offering pre-natal, post-natal, and pediatric care. Throughout the pregnancy, he can help manage the profound demands of the changing pregnant body to keep the expecting mama comfortable and to promote, hopefully, an uncomplicated, quick, and easy labor.
Ashley is currently offering, play-based, somatic movement therapy for infants and children to support sensory processing challenges, difficulty sleeping, developmental delay, atypical movement patterns, digestive issues, social difficulties, chronic illness, behavioral challenges, healing of trauma, and energetic clearing and alignment.
She loves treating the whole family and finds that children often receive even better results from therapy when parents also receive sessions to support their healing and the relational family dynamics that may contribute to the child's symptoms. All families receive support in integrating activities to do at home.
She also offers private healing sessions, classes, and community circles that support adults in parenting and teaching with deeper integrity, supporting women who are wanting to conceive, and creating healing ceremonies to support life transitions.
Her studies include Infant Development Movement Education through the School for Body-Mind Centering, a B.A. in Child Development, a M.A. in Infant Mental Health, a yoga teacher training through Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center, and Reiki training with the Wu Wei School of Reiki.
