Healing with heart.

EMDR Certified & Approved Consultant, Ho'oponopono Certified

It is my personal belief that we as humans have the innate ability to heal. In order to do so we must integrate the mind, body and spirit and connect with one another. Each of us is faced with challenges, stresses, traumas, and sometimes we need support from others to see outside ourselves to overcome the obstacles we face. My goal is to provide a compassionate authentic space to allow clients to explore your struggles, attach to yourself, learn to trust and hold space for vulnerability. I believe each person is their own teacher, and you within yourself know how to reconcile authenticity. I offer a holistic approach to healing that draws on many modalities and strengths such as mindfulness, attachment, eastern medicine perspectives, neurobiology, and somatic understanding, and trauma healing.
