Welcome. I am a certified Focusing professional who works with intelligent, sensitive people to cultivate presence and authentic connection with the self and in relating with others.
Focusing is a gentle, embodied way to bring ease & integration to aspects in your life that are in conflict, and may be causing distress and somatic difficulties. By pausing and gently listening to your body's own wisdom, Focusing can help you to:
Ease anxiety about situations & decisions
Untangle and gain perspective on fraught relationships
Bring spaciousness & integration to your self and your relationships
Support physical healing
Expand limiting stories
Deepen meaning and connection amid life transitions
I guide people in working with blockage, conflict, or self-doubt, helping to shift stuck places. By slowing down, we make space for what's inside, invite awareness to your needs, and reveal the next steps that are evolutionary for you.
I am certified by the International Focusing Institute and co-facilitate workshops on social support and creativity. In my one-on-one practice, I incorporate work from family constellations and Somatic Experiencing, as well as the centering practices of breath work, yoga, and qigong. You can read more about my approach here.
I offer affordable sessions in-person in Eugene, Oregon, online or over the phone. Curious to learn more? Click here for further information.
Dana Hercbergs, Ph.D.
"With Dana there is a very quiet, open, listening quality. It allowed the flow of consciousness and physical sensations to arrive and move in the space of the sessions."
Annie, potter & yoga teacher
"Dana connects with people in a gentle way. I found the session helpful in clarifying my thoughts and feelings. The process through which she led me allowed me to develop mental imagery that has become a part of my vision."
"Focusing reminded me of meditation, which is really good for me. I connected to myself more, I listened to myself, and noticed the dialogues going on inside. My body relaxed. It was a meaningful experience for me - sharing things that I don't usually share!"
