About Me

photo of Barbara Moore
I am a Certified Business Coach, a Certified Somatic Coach, and a Licensed Massage & Bodywork Therapist (LMBT #6151). My prior life experience includes TV & video production, including underwater video production and top side on boats to document the California Gray Whale.  As a Script Supervisor and Continuity professional on L.A. productions, I developed a keen eye for small details when observing people – how they move, react and interact; this lead me to my studies and work as a somatic coach and therapist.

As a singer in the French Quarter, I have an appreciation of music and sound vibration as a healing force.  Interior and exterior  landscape design, installation and maintenance gave me a deep respect for the natural world and how engaging with nature informs us.

My participation in improv comedy (I am a baby here!) has been heaps of fun, and taught me how to be open, allowing the creative force to manifest and play!  In my current work, I am committed to working with people through the innate wisdom of the body to assist you in leading a life that is present, grounded, centered, connected and joyous. I am a grateful work in progress!
