Hi, I'm River

Together we work to overcome past traumas, tune into your body's wisdom, and reclaim your vibrant self.

Reclaim Your Life

My goal is to guide you in breaking free from the barriers that hide your vibrant, authentic self. Through Bodha Blueprint, you can experience what it’s like to heal, reclaim, and embody your true self.

Embarking on my own journey of transformation has taught me invaluable lessons in healing, self-discovery, and the essence of true empowerment. Facing and overcoming the deeply ingrained societal norms and biases, especially around gender identity and expression, demanded courage and led me to develop transformative methods for myself and others. This path has been about understanding my own identity and about empowering others to embrace their full selves, free from the constraints of familial and societal expectations.I believe that the more people in this world embodying their truth, the better the world can be.

My Story

How I Can Help

Build Resilience Against External Negativity

Learn to stay calm and centered no matter what life throws at you. I'll teach you how to handle negative vibes and stressful situations using easy-to-understand techniques based on the latest brain science and body-awareness practices.

Master Your Emotional Responses

Develop the ability to quickly identify and manage your reactions to stress. Using a mix of mindfulness and somatic (body-focused) practices, you'll gain control over your emotions and body responses, helping you tackle challenges with ease.

Enhance Self-Worth and Daily Joy

Engage in practical exercises that help you feel better about yourself and turn everyday moments into sources of joy. Our focus on mind-body connection helps you rediscover happiness in the little things.

Navigate Life's Challenges with Confidence

From managing triggers smoothly to making decisions that truly reflect who you are, I'll help you move through life with confidence. Learn to trust your instincts and embrace your true self without the influence of external judgment.

Move Forward Through Past Trauma

Through gentle, effective practices rooted in understanding how your nervous system works, you better understand how past traumas may be barriers to your well-being. Whether it's dealing with addiction or past hurts, you'll find support and strategies to heal and grow.

Live Your Truth and Achieve Your Dreams

Equip yourself with the courage to live life on your own terms and pursue your dreams without compromise. I'll provide you with the tools and support to live boldly and achieve your personal and professional goals.
