My Story:
I lived a life of complex trauma.

As a child I was expected to be the emotional provider, the adult, the stable and available one. And if I couldn’t live up to those roles there were real consequences.

As I grew older this led me down a hole of mental health challenges and addiction. I felt utterly stuck, encompassed with shame, immobile, and hopeless. I tried everything I could to find a solution. Nothing changed but new faces that offered me false promises that a certain type of therapy, coaching, or energy healing is what would heal me.

With my last ounce of hope I immersed myself in a 2-month intensive for codependency, addiction, and trauma treatment. This place was different and their approach was unconventional but in a grounded “holy shit that was powerful” kind of way.

When I left I continued what I learned. I joined community, spoke my truth, practiced letting go of control and asking for help, told my story again and again, moved my body, and did everything I could to live a life that was loving to myself. I practiced gentleness everyday for a year.

I changed and consequently the world around me changed. Sometimes slowly, sometimes way too quickly.

Fast forward years later I am happier and more supported than ever. With more experience, trainings, and expertise, I have refined the techniques that have gotten me this far. I’ve practiced them with others and seen them work again and again.

My goal is to share them with you.
I guarantee something will help you along the way so that you can become the best you.

There’s all types of things we experience that influence our relationships, life, and happiness. There are real powerful things we can do to overcome them and become our empowered self.

People come to me because they want to move on from their past and trauma and create a life that brings them ultimate fulfillment. They come to me to feel better about their self and increase their ability to show up authentically without messages of perfectionism and worthiness showing up. I help people erase the shame and fear that truly hold them back to create a life full of purpose and connection.

Techniques

I use many different types of techniques in my process work. Art and Sand Tray techniques open up subconscious feelings, beliefs and perceptions about one’s past, present, and future environments. Role-playing and Experiential and Movement Processing releases intense emotions stored in our bodies and simulate a setting to practice conquering fears and boundaries. Parts Work help connect individuals with their true authentic self, navigate their internal states smoothly, and feel deeply repressed emotions and memories. Somatic processing helps individuals build a deeper awareness about how their body experiences emotions. This helps individuals stay connected with their self and body while experiencing emotional triggers. Narrative processing helps individuals understand the impact of their story and draw meaning from their life experiences as a means to their purpose and understanding of the world. Mindfulness, meditation, and breath practices help individuals learn tools to ground and stay connected to themselves.

My Biggest Passion

Mind-Body Connection

What makes my work unique is my use of emotion and body based practices as the cornerstone of my approach.

The research shows there is a deep connection between our mind, emotions, and body. When individuals experience intense emotions, that energy becomes stored within the body. When we connect our emotion with voice and movement, we find that release of our emotions and stories that hold us back from making the changes we so desperately need. Ultimately, we release our mind and body from bondage and practice the work of embodying strength, courage, vulnerability, and connection.
