I believe one of the bravest things we can do is begin to understand our stories. Our minds and bodies react to trauma in a defensive way. The human mind is uniquely designed to defend against the memories of scary events, yet sometimes those defense mechanisms end up causing ongoing pain unnecessarily. Feelings of anger, shame, anxiety and depression can keep one stuck in an endless loop of suffering. Thankfully, it doesn’t have to stay that way. Together, we can approach your journey toward healing, empowering you to engage in your life and self-care. I have been in practice for many years and have seen the benefit of this healing journey.
