SOMATIC THERAPY

Somatic Trauma and Attachment Therapy is a evidence based healing modality, that applies the most current, cutting-edge research in trauma therapy. While remaining rooted in wisdom approaches that reach far back into ancient forms of healing.  

 

It is changing how we perceive and treat; stress, nervous system disorders, and trauma. Somatic processing is known for its safe, quick effectiveness in bringing change and healing to the mind, body, and spirit.

This work helps the mind talk to the body, and vice versa so that the incomplete fight, flight, freeze, and fawn responses have a chance to complete and get current with the present again. This allows for the stress hormones that have been cycling, many times without interruption for many years, to experience relief and eventually, with practice, successful rewiring. This is where healing becomes possible and limiting beliefs transform.

As a somatic trauma and attachment therapist, I have discovered the undeniable value of focusing upon the present and future along side, the unpacking and unburdening of the past. A healthy balance of both has empowered my clients to move forward while simultaneously healing from limiting beliefs, identity, and behaviors. 

 

Transformational coaching has the depth of somatic therapy, while also providing the accountability and steps necessary to move beyond what has historically held you back.

INTERNAL FAMILY SYSTEMS 

Internal Family Systems also known as IFS or "parts work" is a evidence based healing modality that empowers clients to build a relationship to the different "parts" of their internal landscape. IFS teaches that within each of us resides a Core Self that is the inherent wisdom and healing essence of our system. Alongside the core self we also have a wide variety of different parts that arise out of the subconscious mind, that are protective and guard vigilantly our deepest wounds and unprocessed traumas.

These protective parts can also be seen as defense mechanisms or the adaptations that have been imperative to our survival. IFS is stunning in its ability to compassionately work with hurting parts that are often in objection to one another, so we can move forward unencumbered by the burdens and hurts of the past.

Somatic processing is deeply imbedded into parts work therapy and is therefore effective in transforming limiting belief held deep within the subconscious mind. This allows for us to become Self Led and therefore gain internal and external balance for enhanced  spiritual, emotional, relational and physical health. 

Somatic trauma and attachment therapy alongside advanced

transformational coaching has empowered me to:

 

Help my clients securely renegotiate, repattern, and revise the core conditioning of the subconscious mind and together we address the cause verses the symptom for long lasting change.

The only way this level of healing becomes possible is with safety, which means different things to different people. My job is to discover and honor what safety means for you.

I hold dear to my heart the belief that all my clients CAN heal along side my commitment to non judgment, curiosity, courage, inclusion, and compassion.
