About Me

All of us come into contact with four energies everyday: Stress, Shame, Trauma and Grief. The #1 principle: "Find a series of actions you can take on a daily basis, regardless of how you feel, to stay spiritually fit so that you can metabolize those energies." Spirituality is a unique, individual, personal process. I am a EMDRIA trained EMDR therapist and a Trauma informed specialist. Protocol dictates the following order: Crisis, Trauma, and then Talk Therapy, pycho-education, psychoanalysis. Have you resolved, generalized and neutralized your trauma? I'm committed to providing the keys to unlock the gate to Long Term Sobriety, Emotional, Spiritual and Mental Healing. I am trained and specialize in Trauma using EMDR therapy for adolescences and adults. All of our issues are in our tissues. You are the expert in your life. My role is to ask the right questions, observe your blindspots and guide with Love. Most of us are aware of how stress manifests itself in our lives. Understanding that Shame is "baked" into every system, Trauma happens in the small moments of our lives, and that anytime there is change (whether we label that change Good/Bad, Right/Wrong, Positive/Negative) there is loss and we are always in the greif cycle.
