My Approach to Helping
I work with people who are going through difficult times -- illness, grief, anxiety, pain, stress, trauma (specifically medical trauma, accident related trauma, natural disasters, etc), and creative blocks. I offer a compassionate approach to healing. I teach my clients how to learn to recognize when you're feeling overwhelmed or frozen and how to get back into your resilient zone-- that relaxation zone where you feel safe, at peace, and happy. That's the zone that supports healing -- physically, mentally, and emotionally. My intention is to teach you skills that help you enjoy a sense of peace, happiness, and resilience.
Once you understand how mind-body healing works, there are so many things you can do to be empowered to support and encourage your own health and wellbeing, feel more balanced, and return to a state of wholeness. The strategies I’ll equip you with are rooted in an understanding of the brain and how habits and patterns of thought and behavior can be rewired in your mind. Mindfulness is a huge part of that, which also helps you regulate your nervous system and stay in your “rest and repair zone,” which facilitates mind body healing.
I believe that change is possible. Sometimes we need a supportive guide to help us to know where and how to begin. Change requires consistent effort, but when taken one step at a time, it doesn’t have to be hard.
