The Guest House

This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness, or some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all! Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still, treat each guest honorably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.

Focusing on healing the whole self - body, mind, and spirit together 

YOU'VE TRIED TALK THERAPY and now understand what is troubling you, but you still can't find the peace and relaxation that you seek. Talking Therapies can't get through to the inner layer - that's where all the emotions and body sensations connected to what is troubling you are located.  Therapies have struggled with how to access the inner parts of the brain and have them process the rest of what troubles us for decades. You're ready to try something different — something that goes deeper and results in the changes you're hoping to find.

IN NEUROSCIENCE-BASED THERAPIES, we stay in the present and trust the brain and the body to go where they need to go to resolve the current issues while simultaneously freeing us from the chains of the past. This is a new approach that can lead to visible change where you feel as in control of your personal life as you are perceived in your professional one. 

MY TRAINING in Brainspotting, Trauma Release Exercises (TRE), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) allows us to draw from a variety of modalities that can help you tap into your own body’s natural ability to heal itself.

Brainspotting

Brainspotting is a Brain, Body, Mindfulness- Based Relational Therapy developed by Dr. David Grand. Where you look affects how you feel. Finding a Brainspot helps us connect with unprocessed trauma in the  subcortical brain. 

EMDR

EMDR - Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a form of psychotherapy developed by Dr. Francine Shapiro with a focused approach to treating trauma and other symptoms using therapist directed lateral eye movements to access the traumatic memory network.

TRE

TRE - Trauma Release Exercises - is a somatic body-based practice developed by Dr. David Berceli for people suffering from stress, anxiety, trauma, or Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The exercises allow your body to discharge pent-up tension and trauma naturally.

SoulCollage®

SoulCollage® is an expressive arts practice done individually or in the community. Founded by Seena B. Frost, the method develops creativity and intuition, encourages self-discovery, and provides personal guidance.SoulCollage® meets you wherever you are on this journey called life. You don’t have to be an artist to make SoulCollage® cards. Anyone can create and enjoy this powerful practice.

Why The Dragon Fly  firefly

The dragonfly means hope, change, and love.

The dragonfly symbolizes transformation, adaptability, and self-realization. It directs us beyond the superficial layers of our perception and into the deeper meaning of life. It ambulates its nimble frame across the earth, uses its wings to glide through the air, and delicately lands on water. The dragonfly is a creature that embodies the meaning of adaptability and grace. The dragonfly dons a radiance, which is symbolic of the reflection of our own true identity – the authentic self. This numinous creature invites us to break free from the illusions about ourselves and reflect our inner light onto the world.


Now is the time

Dragonflies encourage us to seize the day and to live life to the fullest. When we can remove the doubts about ourselves and be present with the symbolism of the dragonfly, we have the power of awareness. From this position of strength, we can make more meaningful choices about who we are and what we want. The discovery of this uninhibited vision allows us to transcend our limitations and live a more free and beautiful life.

Online Therapy

Whether you’ve been considering starting therapy or you’re ready to pick it back up, we can work together to embrace the positive life changes you’re looking for.

Since 2000, I’ve been helping people get curious about why they are the way that they are through a variety of evidence-based techniques. We use the latest in neuroscience to dig into your subconscious to chip away at any issues with consistent, compassionate therapy. 

Although I can help with a variety of concerns, some of my areas of expertise include:

  • Stress Management
  • Anxiety
  • Childhood Trauma
  • Substance Abuse
  • Dissociation
  • Losing Time
  • Feeling Empty
  • Feeling Burnout
  • Overwhelmed
  • Telehealth

I’ve also worked in Child Welfare for 20 years, helping children and parents with adjustment to adoptions, and I have served as expert witness testimony to help the community.

Start Therapy - Exclusively Online

Often, getting out of the house, a commute, and changes to your routine are big barriers to entry for those starting therapy. One of the biggest benefits of working with me is that we work together exclusively online, meaning you can get help from the comfort of your own home. With just an internet connection, you can finally start tuning into your needs through the guidance of an expert therapist. I offer telehealth therapy to residents of Utah, Vermont, Florida, and South Carolina.

  • Brainspotting
