“ I am not a thing — a noun. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process — an integral function of the universe.” - Buckminster Fuller
"I help people and organizations establish new patterns of behavior for relating to themselves and others with a mindful engagement of the body and its senses. Nothing inspires me more than seeing the spark of hope in someone’s eyes when they discover that the power to create change is alive within them.
The ocean, the mountains, and the wilderness are my greatest teachers. I like to go into uncertainty and return renewed with something more to offer the world. I am an explorer of unfamiliar landscapes and a student of the unknown. With a history of trauma, depression, and anxiety, I've learned how to go the distance into myself and come back as a whole and healthy being, alive and connected to my family, my community and this beautiful planet. My passion for finding a way through life’s challenges has led me to receive my Masters in Somatic Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies and on to my work as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Los Angeles California. ." - Justin Hartery LMFT
