I have been on my own healing journey for, what feels like, most of my life. Growing up with an alcoholic and narcicisstic parent and experiencing early childhood trauma, I have experienced a wide variety of healing modalities and therapy. I noticed as I went through many layers of healing that traditional talk therapy was no longer feeling helpful and then finding that traditional psychology was no longer helpful. At this time, my own healing path turned to more spiritual approaches. Since my own healing journey deepened tremendously once I accessed spiritually healing, I found it difficult to work with other more traditional Psychological models. The result is something that I am extremely proud of and can be a powerful method of healing.
I feel that we are not meant to do this type of work on our own. Our wounds are very often relationally based and it is important to heal those wounds in relationship. As a therapist and another human being on this path, I am a committed support and ally on your healing journey. I often found that I could only go as deep as the therapist had gone with themselves and I value this in my own life as I continue to live my life to support my own healing and the work I have been guided to do in this world.
I believe strongly in the mind, body, spirit connection and how this impacts our life as well as our healing. My personal gifts include the ability to provide a safe, caring, and non-judgemental space that is necessary for the healing practice. I believe that everyone has innate healing capacities within themselves and my role is to assist in accessing your own internal wisdom and healing power.
