If you are in pain & feel left out of life, I could be a good fit for you. If you watch everyone else wondering "what am I doing wrong?" "when will it be my turn?" Often we withdraw when we don't feel well, even when longing for connection. Sometimes we are coping w/a medical condition, in addition to trauma, chronic pain or fatigue. Often this is bundled w/depression, anxiety, panic & PTSD. In addition to your own stressors, maybe you also care for a loved one w/a disability or illness. When it's all too much, when our symptoms & stressors push us toward our window of tolerance or decrease feelings of self worth, I'm here for you.
A previous hospice social worker, I am now trained in EMDR, Pain Reprocessing, KAP, Mindfulness, CBT & energy psychology (ie EFT/"tapping"). I study IFS, Buddhist, Psychedelic & Jungian psychologies. I also practice yoga, reiki, Wise Woman Healing & Dream Tending. I find healing in stories, stillness, nature, art & poetry. I use humor & the sacred often.
My Clients are often coping w/chronic pain or illness, caregiver fatigue, grief, trauma, depression, anxiety/panic, getting older or low self worth. Many are attracted to my nurturing, holistic approach, or curious about KAP & other ways to incorporate the sacred. I do not currently have openings (I do have a waitlist). I update this page when I do.
