It's what we all want.
What if I told you it IS possible
Actually, really possible.
Together We can
Heal the Past, Embrace the Present
and Explore Possibilities.
Experiencing struggle and levels of grief and trauma are common and part of the human experience. Working through our stories can lead to purpose and meaning, even creating space to support others on their journey.
That's what happened for me.
I was so compelled to release the old stories that held me back.
This is why I stand here before you able to help.
I didn't want my past to control my present or future any longer.
I’m here now, whole, and wanting to help you and others move through their stories too.
Finding my own path to healing and growth, I recognized that "talk therapy" wasn't the only answer, and I was driven to explore alternative solutions. As part of my commitment, I embarked on shifting the narrative surrounding grief, trauma and healing. Now, I invite you to a safe and empowering space for your transformational journey, where you can begin a new chapter of your story.
Your story matters and whatever you are experiencing is valid. We have all experienced some type of struggle in life. Being witnessed is one of the most potent medicines.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social worker and I integrate therapy (EMDR), energy work and yoga to guide my clients as they heal the past, find ways to be present and create vision and possibility.
Check out all the ways we can be together in community and connection.
Community Conversations, Yoga Nidra, Grief Yoga and more
Gather • Connect • Learn • Act
If you could be "patiently present" in the moment.
If you could find relief from frustrations and conflict?
If you could experience great relationships?
While our stories may be different, I deeply empathize and wholeheartedly connect with the grief and trauma many of us carry. If the stories connected to your past are controlling your present, I can help.
Together We can shift the narrative.
We can't change or control what happened in the past
but we can control how it affects today by shifting the relationship with our beliefs, emotions and experiences.
We can reframe our stories of pain, grief and trauma to love, connection and healing. All of this results in a powerful shift in perspective.
It's incredibly difficult to do this alone Together We can navigate and heal the stories of the past, pause to embrace the present and be curious and empowered towards the hope and possibility of the future.
My unique combination of these modalities enables my clients to fully work through their stories connected to grief and trauma.
Bringing together therapy, EMDR, yoga, breath-work, and energy healing,I create a space where you can feel safe to show up exactly as you are, at that moment - authentically YOU.
Working together we will connect your stories and experiences to start to make sense of them. Each story, each experience, each relationship from our past creates thoughts and beliefs about ourselves. These thoughts and beliefs connect to certain emotions in our minds and bodies.
In the present moment, our nervous system calibrates towards what we experienced as adverse or traumatic from the past. Our nervous system doesn't know the difference - it can't tell if it was 10 years ago or now - so in the moment your system subconsciously believes it is re-living the experience -
I teach and guide people how to identify their thoughts, emotions, and sensations in their bodies so they can be super aware in the moment. In the present, TOGETHER WE create new experiences within the mind, emotions, and sensations in the body. This shift recalibrates the whole system towards something new so we can reframe and create a desired future.
Together, one step at a time.
Navigating the teenage years can be overwhelming, so I created Life School 360 to support, connect and empower teenagers and families through challenging times.
"I feel good, happy and ready for the next stage in my life. And I love the comfort of having the videos to look back on whenever I need."
I recently wrote about the journey of climbing a mountain representing growth and healing. Brief recap- falling, regrouping and healing from new perspectives. You get the idea, right?
The beginning of 2023 felt like one of those falls. When it seemed like the rest of the world was starting off 2023 with new goals and intentions, I felt like I was dropping. And every day, many times a day I chose to get up and keep going.
Let me pause… A limiting belief is that I do it all alone. My mind and body have a lot of evidence of this belief. Divorced, Ben’s death, friendships that have fallen apart and a recent one- being lied to and scammed by a new hire (to help me grow Life School). It hurts. It can feel like the universe keeps handing me experiences where I am left feeling alone and undervalued. And sometimes it feels like a “F*!k You”. Can you relate?
AND, I am my own best client. I am massively committed to re-wiring and finding my way back to the truth that I am loved and valued. In time, with practice and support, I understand the meaning that is reflected from each experience. I am shown the wisdom and the reminders of worth.
All of the evidence that points to limiting beliefs is in the past. It can shift. In this present moment, I am choosing to perceive these experiences as reminders of what I truly desire and there is always light there.
I feel a shift beginning and I wonder what the new perspective will be. What will I see differently?
This morning I sat and felt into the experiences that are filling me up- these are evidence too- the beautiful relationships I have with my clients, a friend's invitation to a show, live music with college friends, a forgiving healing conversation with a friend, time with Danny. Guiding Yoga Nidra in my new space. Dance class, a walk on the beach with Shookie and a friend, a simple text or phone call, rebrand with Soul Camp, Sam Flores and her integrity, devotion and care, and the multiple relationships I am building to bring Life School 101 into communities.
I embrace and savor the evidence of being supported in all ways I desire.
So if you began 2023 in an attempt to create New Year's resolutions/intentions and your start may not be what you wanted. It’s ok. Begin Again with me. You are not alone either. Let’s begin again today; with less judgment and more compassion.
Together We create new possibilities
Together We are resilient
Together We are courageous
Together We are willing
