Helping you heal all parts of you

I can help you can learn how to access your internal resources of clarity, creativity, and compassion so you can heal yourself and show up as your truest self in life!

My Story

Through years of trauma therapy as well as becoming an IFS Practitioner and getting a PSAP (both of which are trauma-informed modalities), I eventually found the Enneagram as the tool that pulled it all together. Discovering not only where my pitfalls are – but also my strengths – was a game changer.

We go to therapy for healing. And it helps. And during or after therapy, we can still feel stuck. We can get lost as we go into the deeper parts of ourselves – but it is there where we find keys to unlock our freedom and transformation and rediscover who we really are.

IFS and the Enneagram have been key modalities in my healing journey. Along with my relationship with Jesus, these tools have served as a type of scaffolding that has helped organize my healing process and helped me to climb out of a very deep dark trench of suffering I was stuck in.

My heart is to use all the tools I have learned and integrated into my journey to help my clients find the freedom and transformation they deserve and so desperately need too. ♥️

What We MUST Have to Heal, Grow, & Thrive:

A Strong Sense of Self Worth and Value

The process of rebuilding self esteem / worth is more about releasing the constraints that block us from accessing our core self – the essence of who we were created to be.

An Honest Sense of Who We Are

We tend to focus on where we’re not good enough, where we’re broken, or where we’re lacking. Discovering our strengths and what we have to offer both to ourselves and others is healing to the parts of ourselves that have been hidden away for far too long.

Belief that Post Traumatic Growth is Possible

Life can bring a lot of roadblocks and adversity. It’s easy to get stuck in our suffering and live from a scarcity mentality of survival. You can be vicimized by it and live a life of bitterness or you can overcome it and live a life of thriving.

Room to Breathe, Spaciousness, Inner Capacity

Slow down, be with, get curious. As stress and anxiety build we speed up. As we speed up, stress and anxiety build. Where there is breath, there is space. Where there is space, there is movement. Where there is movement, there is no dis-ease.

A Felt Sense of Safety and Security and an Anchor for Our Soul

Whether you have big T traumas, little t traumas, or benign neglect traumas, they all leave their mark in our bodies. No matter the kind (mental, emotional, physical, relational) – trauma is experienced and then stored in the body. Therefore we must treat trauma by treating the body ~ creating a felt sense of worth and belonging, love and connection, safety and security. I don’t know how to do this outside of having someone stronger than me as my source of security to anchor myself to when life gets in the way. 

Somehow, some way having an embodied experience that God is love even if we’re in a dark night of the soul.

My Approach

Everything from life’s ongoing roadblocks to life’s major traumas has an impact on us. It’s easy to lose ourselves in the throws of life.

False beliefs about ourselves, wounds from our past and present, and habitual coping patterns keep us stuck.

We are complex beings, therefore I use an integrated approach utilizing:

  • The Enneagram as a launching off point and growth tool
  • Internal Family System’s parts work
  • Somatic (body) experiences such as breath and movement
  • Building awareness of your window of tolerance and polyvagal theory

MY CREDENTIALS:

Below is a list of my credentials and various trainings I have completed.

Before I share those, I’d like to share a bit of my personal story as I’ve found that those who have walked similar paths as I have – even if the details aren’t exactly the same – are those who have been able to help me the most.

Personal Experience:

I know what it’s like to come from a broken home and the lasting impact it has on how I show up in my relationships as an adult.

I know what it’s like to walk through betrayal trauma and the complex PTSD that lingers far beyond its welcome.

I know what its like to be stuck in emotional pain to the point I am at my wit’s end and am swallowed up by hopelessness and despair.

I know what it’s like to raise three boys (two of whom are twins) and move a million times from state to state and country to country.

I know what it’s like to walk through chronic physical pain and the mental and emotional anguish that infects the soul.

I know what it’s like to go through cancer and the fears that follow.

I know what it’s like to live life on this planet where nothing ever stays the same and the joys and sorrows that come with that.

I know what it’s like to be hurt by those in the church. 

I know what it’s like to feel stuck – for a really long time – even when going through years of therapy.

I know what it’s like to walk through a dark night of the soul and lose faith in God, myself, and everything around me.

I know what it’s like to desperately cling to a desire to know who I really am, who God really is, and who I am to him. Desperately asking questions such as:

~ do I matter?

~ do you see me?

~ do you even care?!

I know what it’s like to dig deep, make hard choices, and put one foot in front of the other and seek the help I need.

I wonder if you have similar questions? Perhaps coaching is your NEXT RIGHT STEP?
