I would like to introduce you to my tagline... Illuminate. Transform. Elevate and what it means. First, I want to say that one size does not fit all but Illuminate.Transform.Elevate is a powerful way of understanding transformation.
A little bit of my story... I have been in private practice for over 22 years and began my own healing path when I was just the ripe age of 21. Therefore, cumulative I have about 32 years of experience in this crazy world of healing, psychology and the beautiful experience of watching myself and so many others on the transformative path of healing.
You may be asking what does this transformative path look like? Well, here is what I can tell you, I have studied with many master teachers from psychology, energy medicine, shamanic practices, and healers from ancient wisdom practices to the professionals who have held the highest levels of accolades. Here is my thought...there are many paths to healing but these three illuminate.transform.elevate. are so powerful on the healing journey.
Realize this... each of us is so different, we have are own traumas, our own experiences, our own personality and the gifts and struggles of our individual life. Let's accept that first. In my life, I have risen many times over and continue to grow on my path, despite the challenges and losses of my life or my history of abuse, neglect, and abandonment.
How did I figure this out? Here is what happened... A few years ago working in my private practice, I had the realization after an Integrative Psychotherapy session about illuminating patterns (Patterns are the big deal! I could go on and on, but that is for another post. This is only my second one, you know!). If we are able to see our patterns then the next actions come much easier. If someone tries to transform or elevate their life without understanding where these issues are rooted, they will typically continue going around the same circle - maybe some progress but the two steps forward, one step back scenario. But, if they can illuminate their patterns which aren't working, this includes relationships, behaviors, and lifestyles, then they can truly begin to transform those stuck or challenging places which then will allow life to elevate in a more genuine harmonious way.
How would this look if I work with you? First, as a fellow journeyer, I will offer invites (this is your journey), use my skills and tools to walk with you on your path. I hope to be a part of the illumination of "your stuff." Your patterns, your traumas, your relationships, and your ways of being that keep you in the "stuck places." As you see these patterns that aren't working, we will apply the tools that you need and watch as you elevate your life to a life that is in alignment with you.
My invite... Follow your own heart, mind, body, and soul. This is your journey and I hope for you the absolute best.
