What people are saying about my coaching

I would highly recommend booking in for Jalen's Wave Method bodywork and/or Somatic Resilience coaching. You will be in great, safe, loving and super healing care. I found it very helpful in shifting my current fear and resistance as I set sail for brand new direction in my life (post-divorce, new career & moving away!). I was guided back to centre, truth and reminded of the courage in me to make the wondrous leap. Thank you Jalen for the gift of you in this world - that reflects lovingly the gift I possess in me too.

I was feeling stuck in my career and working in a negative environment—resulting in stresses that affected my emotional and physical well-being. I wanted to be on different path but wasn't sure how to transition. Through a series of creative discovery exercises, Jalen helped me pinpoint what was on-track, what was off-track, and outline the steps to take to achieve my specific career and health goals.

Jalen and I worked together during a period in my life that involved much shifting and changing. At the time, my life, in all areas (professional, personal, romantic) felt like a boat that was trying to navigate during turbulent seas without an effective rudder. My lover of 6 years had moved hundreds of miles away from me, my beloved teacher had died suddenly and unexpectedly and I was struggling professionally with how to express myself in the world. Jalen offered a sturdy, resilient and compassionate container and mirror that helped to steer my course more in-line with my deeper truth. Each session brought wisdom, perspective and peacefulness to the surface. When uncomfortable feelings arose, Jalen was able to offer neutral ground so that I could make the shifts that needed to happen. Jalen has the capacity to skillfully work with the masculine archetypes that circulate in our human landscape so that we can relate, connect, see and heal. He's willing to ask the important and provoking questions that lead to those essential 'aha' moments of discovery and wisdom. I would not hesitate to recommend his coaching services

Jalen offers a grounded, open, and focused presence that invited my complete self to emerge. Because he created and held a safe space, Jalen encouraged vulnerability and the recognition and release of limiting thoughts. He brings a lightness of spirit that is both playful and deeply respectful, and consistently met my complexities and emotional shifts with intuitive grace. Jalen tuned into my energy, and acted as a mirror wherein my strengths were clarified, and my weaknesses transformed. Through his discerning guidance, I was able to recognize my beauty, power, and divine connection. It was a tremendous gift to feel seen on such a profound level. After our time together I felt incredibly light and free.

As a coach, Jalen's ability to help me look at perspectives was highly impactful. His ability to listen deeply and paraphrase my words really helped me see my impact on others. I left our session committed to 'cross the line' and move forward on a difficult decision I had to make. I highly recommend Jalen if you are looking for a coach who will give you direct feedback when necessary and hold the space for you to work through your own issues.

Jalen you are amazing! The session was so productive and the way in which you showed up was truly incredible. I felt totally at ease, open and fully heard. You made me see so many things in a new light and exactly how I was blocking myself. The guided meditation was mind blowing, I felt so connected, safe and surrounded by support and understanding.

This is the first time I had a Trager treatment. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome as I have been battling with some old injuries. Aggressive intrusive massage and intense stretching was always the treatment that was suggested. What I have learned from Trager treatment is that it does not have to be so uncomfortable. Comfort and relaxation is the focal point.

Jalen's sessions were kind, compassionate and effective in allowing my body to relax and release the tension it held.
I always felt safe and cared for during sessions which was very important to me as I released pain and tension from my body.
I was impressed with Jalen's ability to handle my emotional releases as several times I laughed or cried or just shook in my body releasing the unwanted experiences that it was ready to let go of.
I would highly recommend Jalen's skillful, professional, helpful and effective techniques if you need to release tension or stress from your body mind or spirit.

Jalen's treatments are wonderful! His touch is gentle and intuitive. I felt looser and more relaxed, and really enjoyed the work. I was quite impressed with how thoughtful and respectful his touch and hands were, and I felt that he was in conversation with my body. I highly recommend his treatments.

A Trager session with Jalen is a great way to calm your body and mind. His intuitive hands and movements take you to a place of complete relaxation which can stay with you long after the session. I highly recommend Jalen to introduce you to Trager bodywork.

Jalen offered me my first experience of the Wave Method and awakened profound insights that I had no prior access to. As a longtime healer and person on the path of spiritual growth, I have experienced many different kinds of bodywork and formed relationships with numerous quality practitioners. Jalen ranks among the top. After a single session with Jalen, I can ground my fluid nature almost instantly, feeling brave, present, and solid. I am able to open myself – expressively, creatively, and in relationships – with a more flexible, playful, and authentic presence. The effects of Jalen’s bodywork brought me into greater alignment with who I am on all levels.

Jalen’s calm and intuitive nature allowed me to feel comfortable immediately. He has a balanced nature of gentle strength which allows the client to feel at ease and the body to relax into an open state. His passion and deep respect for Trager is evident. This technique is highly needed in this time of great inner stress.
