Professional statement

Embodied Healing is a mind body connection approach to healing that looks at a person as an integrated whole: mind + body + spirit. Traditional “talk therapy” often focuses solely on life history and the analysis of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. In contrast, mind body therapy incorporates these same principals, yet integrates the body and its' experience into the journey. It can be profoundly impactful to understand the body through the sensations, while allowing space for the nervous system to regulate.

It is my job to facilitate and support your healing by giving you appropriate skills and resources to feel safe and secure while teaching you how to implement them into your daily practice.

During our time together, you will learn effective strategies for self-regulation and nervous system soothing, how to re-establish a communicative relationship with your body and emotions, what boundaries you need in place to feel safe and secure, which core wounds are playing themselves on repeat in your life, what distorted beliefs about yourself are holding you back from thriving and how to increase your ability to be with big energy and emotions without feeling overwhelmed.

Working with me requires a willingness to do hard, deep, but gentle, work. I will not take on clients who are looking for someone to heal them. I offer support, tools, guidance, deep processing work, compassion, empathy and years of research, study and training, but I cannot do the healing for you. This is ultimately a co-created experience wherein my desire for you is to become your own best resource of wisdom, truth, healing and love

If this work feels like a match for your journey and where you’re hoping to go, let's schedule a consultation to see if we are aligned for the journey together.
