"During my first psychology class in high school I learned that there are actually words to describe my experience-the sometimes conflicting experiences of living between two different worlds. I became passionate about finding a way to address the experience of people whose hurts and wounds are often invisible-fractured hearts and minds vs physical challenges. I was saddened by my observation that too many people feel stigmatized and alone with their inner turmoil and wanted to find a way to make the heart, mind and body whole. My dream is that therapy becomes accessible to everyone and viewed merely as another source of support."

This can be related to one incident or exposure to multiple or prolonged traumatic events such as emotional/sexual/physical abuse and/or neglect. Those with a history of trauma experience symptoms like depression, anxiety, anger, guilt/shame, sleep disorders, and the list continues. And frequently, those suffering from the symptoms of unresolved trauma turn to drugs, alcohol, eating disorders, and/or other addictive and often self-destructive behaviors as a coping mechanism. "

Often at the core of being stuck is trauma: something that is too big and too fast that overwhelms us and leaves us frozen.
