In trauma, we are cut off from the body to protect us from pain the nervous system decides is too much. Short term, this is a great survival strategy, but long term this dampens our ability to feel safe, connected and empowered. By increasing the capacity to feel good and supported, symptoms decrease, and any remaining trauma can be processed more easily.
Healing from trauma does not simply happen in the mind, and it can be challenging without the support of a diet that restores internal rhythms and daily practices that tap into the body’s wisdom and forge new pathways in the brain and nervous system. A nourishing lifestyle opens up the possibility that life after trauma can be more vibrant than ever before.
We are living in an ableist and high-pressure culture that is unsuited to those of us with chronic issues, whether physical, mental, or spiritual.
I am here to support you, whether you are working through difficult emotions or experiences, looking for new routines or practices, figuring out how to navigate your present reality, or simply seeking understanding and rest.
Overwhelming or invalidating experiences can cause the nervous system to lose its innate flexibility, keeping us stuck in physical and mental loops that can disrupt our goals and even lead to illness. Using a combination of ancient and modern techniques specially tailored for you, you can break out of unwanted patterns and realize your fullest potential.
I offer free consultations, a generous sliding scale for those in need, & convenient therapy right through your computer!
