My practice, advocacy efforts, and blog reflect the three intertwined cornerstones of my life: women’s trauma, social justice and spirituality. Much of what I do is grounded in my own life experiences with trauma, emotional healing, and spiritual growth.
I am passionate about assisting women along their path to healing, and for strengthening the connection between mind, body, and spirit. I strive to be balanced and flexible in my approach to treatment, and to serve my clients from a strengths-based place of compassion, non-judgment, and understanding. I feel that my clients know themselves and their bodies best, and treat them according to their wishes and specific needs. I care deeply about my clients, and find real joy in the long-term professional relationships I have established with many of them.
I also strongly believe that attending to community and intergenerational trauma is as important as healing individual trauma. Discrimination, marginalization, and oppression are traumatic to both individuals and communities, and collective trauma is, I feel, one of the major contributing factors to the major societal and environmental issues that we face today.
All that I do is firmly grounded in my relationship with the natural world, and in the Shamanic practices that anchor both my professional and personal life. It is through my relationship with Spirit that I have been able to find meaning in my own traumatic experiences, and to find balance during the chaotic times in which we live. I find true delight in working with people from a wide variety of faith traditions – and with those who do not hold any religious or spiritual beliefs, at all.
