What is the STREAM Certification Program?
STREAM is a two-year program. Year One grounds you in our deeply integrative curriculum. Group Orientation calls happen once every quarter, keeping you up to date with the progression of information flow. Private mentorship calls happen every other month, so there's ample time to experiment and test what you're learning in your personal and professional life.
Online learning includes video lessons, audio-only podcasts, reading material, and the occasional writing assignment. There's a private interactive forum to facilitate group exchange and learn from your peers. COVID permitting, you will get a chance to attend the live-in-person STREAM Somatics workshop. But your main job during Year One is to absorb and to question.
Year Two deepens your experience by taking your most valuable learning directly into practice. Toggling between live workshops (or their equivalent), professional supervision, and crazy-effective business coaching, abundant personal attention enables you to reach your professional goals. The online curriculum becomes even more pragmatic and compelling.
Year Two's monthly individualized touch points keep you moving forward. You'll come away with a custom-tailored plan to fit your professional needs, and the depth of understanding to carry it out.
Get the chance to walk the walk of pelvic health to the extent you're willing to work at it. Engaging your own health as a personal practice is based on the STREAM ethos of embodied learning. When your lab work is done in your own body, the change you dream about seeing occurs within. And when your world changes, so does the world at large.

There are three tracks available for STREAM Certification; the track you choose depends on your professional goals. When necessary, we will help guide you to your best choice––one that makes sense for your location, profession, and stage of career development. STREAM training includes reviewing your professional goals and identity once you're grounded in STREAM foundations and 75% through your first year. We acknowledge the kind of practitioner you are already and the direction you'd like to grow.

HOW IT WORKS
Getting Started with STREAM Certification
STREAM TRACK 1
PROVIDE EMBODIED TRAUMA WORK
The effects of unseen and unacknowledged scars -
due to birthing trauma, sexual shame, and little-to-no
accurate information about self-care sink deep.
Coupled with pan-cultural sexual ignorance, we're crippled not just as individuals but in our relationships. STREAM offers remediation using skillful, sensitive, and accurate interventions.
STREAM Somatic Educators offer actionable information
About increased sexual autonomy
To illuminate lesser-known facts of sexual function
For scar remediation, seen and unseen
STREAM TRACK 2
REMEDIATE EXTERNAL SCARS & POSTURE
REGULATE THE EMOTIONAL BODY
TUNE & EDUCATE
the NERVOUS SYSTEM
Life, pregnancy, birthing, and postpartum issues affect the body differently for everyone. STREAM Hands-On professionals help bodies who birth (and others) to regain emotional, postural, and organ integrity. This allows their clients to:
Reverse pain syndromes
Regain postural ease and grace
Recover their right to pleasurable sex
Reorganize organ placement & function, correctly
The way you choose to apply the principles of STREAM in practice is as varied as the people you serve.
STREAM TRACK 3
LISTEN TO THE TISSUE
HEAR THE WHOLE BODY'S STORY
FACILITATE THE JOURNEY FROM PAIN TO MEANING
Listening to the stories held inside our tissues is a fine art. STREAM Hands-In professionals help clients to connect with the stories they never knew their bodies were holding. When the body's truth is revealed, healing happens in rapid, unexpected, and profound ways.
Clients report that:
Their scars change texture, reducing restrictions
Dots connect between symptoms & emotions
Organs move and structural changes are maintained
By getting to the root of the pain, it's eliminated
Through meaningful somatic education, facilitated self-discovery, and pelvic mapping, STREAM works to resolve pain and blockage from scars–both physical and unseen.

To democratize the benefits of STREAM, I believe that STREAM information should be as accessible as possible for everyone who’s interested. That’s why I made it available as a Self-Study Course for those who are not able to travel to our in-person workshops.
However, the STREAM Self-Study Program does not qualify students for STREAM Certification. STREAM Certification requires a 2-year commitment that includes 1:1 Mentorship, Professional Supervision, and Business Coaching, as well as live in-person learning. To use STREAM as part of your personal branding, you must be STREAM-Certified.
Requirements for STREAM Certification are listed in the graphic with the umbrella on it.
STREAM Certification requires attendance at three in-person workshops (or their equivalent). “Equivalence” is decided on an individual basis depending on the qualifications and training of each student who applies for STREAM Certification.
We all benefit by understanding the path to whole-body health before asking others to walk it with us. STREAM practitioners walk the walk. As the effects of STREAM are felt in your own body, you're better equipped to accompany your clients' journey compassionately. To this end, the STREAM Certification Program teaches students the tools and techniques to help themselves. After one's self-care is secured, it's time to help others.
