Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Serving all of Maine online, ME
Learning how to regulate your nervous system's response to stressors using Poly-vagal theory, yogic breathing techniques, visualization, and energy medicine is highy effective. In addition, we will combine CBT, Mindfulness practices, exercise and movement, sound therapy and nutrition to support your body and mind in finding better balance. We will identify what you might let go of that may be fueling the tension and worry you experience. We will practice calling up how you'd rather feel.
Trauma exists on a continuum - from smaller incidents to overwhelming ones. I have experience with healing attachment trauma, and rebuilding a more secure base. I can help you learn to recognize emotional shock, and how to treat it. If you dissociate, I can help you to ground and reconnect. When useful, I offer mind-body techniques like Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping), and AIT (clearing trauma from the chakras).
As a sensitive, myself, I have learned to work with my energy system to balance and restore it, recognize its warning flags, and keep my energies humming. Energy medicine techniques, clearing non-self energy, releasing energetic impacts from others, learning to discern what is yours from what belongs to another, and developing healthy emotional and energetic boundaries are specialties of mine. Rather than seeing your sensitivity as a problem. you can learn to recognize it as a valuable tool.
If you want one singular modality. I may not be the right fit. I provide a unique blend of theoretical and magically transformative approaches paired with intuitive guidance.

Mindfulness is my way of being. This is the base from which I practice and share what works. My clients have minds that are "too busy," and lives that feel too fast-paced. You, too, will be relieved to discover how simple and powerful these practices are. I have studied and trained in this modality for 3 decades
