  • Are you experiencing racing thoughts, feelings of overwhelm, anxiety, and there seems to be little or no relief?  

  • Are are you isolating from loved ones or things you once enjoyed in life? 

  • Are you struggling with hurtful moments, pain or aspects of your life, and you are ready to process, heal and live a more freeing life?  

  • Are you ready to experience the power of being heard, supported, validated, and understood without fear of judgment or rejection? 

 If you answered yes, to any of the questions above, then welcome to your personal journey of healing and discovery! We will explore various aspects of your life that have created a theme that may no longer serve you. You will learn healthy ways to cognitive reframe and restructure for your healing process. You will equally learn therapeutic modalities to release the somatic experience from your body. When you experience moments that seem hopeless and helpless, this creates a trauma response.

Trauma stores itself in the body in an attempt to protect you the next time there may be potential threats. These stored memories may present in the body as chronic pain, headaches, anxiety, panic attacks, and other discomforting ways.  Allow me the opportunity to help assist you to a journey of healing and freedom!
