“I dream of creating a safe community where we move, write, speak, draw, cry, scream, curse, dance and express from the depth of our souls. Listening to deep secrets, uncensored. Sitting eye to eye, drinking tea, biting into chocolates, accepting each other’s stories unconditionally.”
My calling is to work with highly creative, sensitive, and imaginative women and men who mask the pain of misunderstood and undiagnosed trauma and PTSD with walls of unconscious defense. I build safety and trust in order to explore what feels chaotic, painful, and frozen in your life.
As a sacred healer, wisdom teacher, mystic, metaphysician, psychospiritual body-oriented counselor, creative coach, somatic writing coach, intimacy trainer, breathworker, and emotional intuitive. I utilize holistic approaches. Integrating mind, body and soul. I move you deeply into your emotions, dreams a body and psyche to expand self -awareness. Repetitive, unhealed thoughts, traumatized frozen feelings and memories, are softened and excavated through, techniques such as, EMT, mindfulness, dream work, rebirthing, art, writing, movement, breathwork and recovery processes, which frees you to relate from a primal, instinctual and authentic expression.
Since, trauma is in the body, not the head, my experiential method guides you to discover your core woundedness. My process of-coming into the body- is a uniquely individual, instinctive, creative, and spiritual path for each person. I listen deeply. I observe and feel the pieces of your story that need to be mended and made whole.
