Struggling to cope with a trauma?
Paralyzed by the illness or loss of a loved one?
Stuck in your life, unable to make progress?
You can find your way forward to joy.
How do I know?
After years of struggling with childhood trauma and a divorce, I met the love of my life…only to lose him to cancer a few years later. Even though I knew about the end, I was exhausted and devastated by the loss and re-entering life became a challenge. Nothing worked as before and I had no script. What I didn’t know then is that meeting him was the beginning of a much longer era in my life, one in which I learned to live with an open heart.
Hearts break in order to open, and our grief-soaked moments in life are truly our greatest pathways to joy.
After nursing my love through cancer and living through immense grief following his death, I knew that my pain was born from my love for him.
No winter? No spring.
No grief? No love.
“There will come a time when you believe everything is finished; that will be the beginning.” —Louis L’Amour
But I also knew I needed to find my way back to joy and back to myself, back into all parts of my body. I explored embodiment practices to help me associate with my body after dissociation from long-term stress and trauma. All the practices I teach now are the modalities I found most deeply healing on my path, and I became licensed in all of them in order to share them with you.
