"We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned so as to open to the life that is waiting for us." ~ Joseph Campbell
Trauma has a way of living on in our bodies and our bodies have a way of knowing how and when the healing process may begin. Trauma causes us to have aspects of ourselves in discordance with other aspects - and trauma work can help heal this rift. Learning how to create safety is key in trauma work and this point of safety often begins outside of oneself but eventually ends up being found within oneself.
"We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned so as to open to the life that is waiting for us." ~ Joseph Campbell One of the only constants in life is change. Learning how to become adaptable and flexible in the face of change and transitions can have a profoundly healing impact on mental health.
I spent several years working with highly sensitive adolescents and adults. Cultivating strong energetic and emotional boundaries can have a very positive impact in the way a sensitive person experiences their life. Managing anxiety around engaging with the world also has great positive impact on a sensitive person.
Identifying, accepting, and committing to the values that are most alive for us in this present moment can be a helpful way of approaching how to create the best version of our lives. Skills such as contacting the present moment, accepting what is through mindfulness, and learning how to become comfortable with a certain amount of discomfort are valuable tools to learn and apply to one's personal growth journey.
My background is in yoga therapy and I use the wisdom of your body to help guide you into your own insights and understandings. This can effectively be done through online work and often leaves the client feeling more empowered and connected with their own body. Your body speaks to you - my job is to help you learn how to understand and listen to it.
I believe the body and psyche will work to move back towards optimal health. We are self-healers and do not require someone else to heal us. What we do require is someone to help guide us, to help us expand our awareness, and someone to help us be accountable to ourselves. My clients know themselves better then I ever will. And I trust their inner wisdom to inform us of what to work on.
