Trauma holding you back?

You know it’s technically over and in the past, but it just doesn’t feel that way.

The reminders are everywhere, like landmines waiting to go off. And even when you build your life around avoiding them, you’re blindsided by another flashback, another nightmare.

So you push harder, filling up your schedule and saying yes to way too many things, all so that you don’t have to spend a single minute thinking about how your life feels completely upside down. Or you constantly feel like your cup is overflowing. And not in a good way. Yet somehow at the same time you always feel empty, off.

Life has been one endless blur of going through the motions, and you haven’t recognized the person staring back at you in the mirror for a long time, maybe never. That person’s a stranger, not to be trusted, better left at arm’s length. You tell yourself, some things are just better left alone.

And then there’s relationships…

Between the ones you’ve sabotaged, the dysfunctional ones, and the ones that smashed your heart into a trillion pieces…it’s been a sh*t show to say the least.

Friendships feel shallow and one-sided, family gatherings leave you feeling out of the loop, and all you see behind you is a trail of disconnection. Whether you’re sitting at home by yourself or surrounded by people, you can’t outrun the loneliness or the fear of being abandoned.

And you wonder, ‘why do I keep getting this wrong’ because it seriously shouldn’t be so hard.

bye bye survival mode

So what if I told you you’re not destined to feel like you’re drowning in trauma forever…

…moving through life like a shell of yourself. Quite the opposite. You get to be free. As you untangle yourself from trauma, it no longer has the same charge, the same intensity, it doesn’t take up all the oxygen in the room anymore.

It’s still a part of your story and it matters, but it’s not tripping the silent alarms constantly like it used to. In fact, those alarms have been deactivated. No more dreaded landmine-reminders.

Shame isn’t swallowing you whole anymore. Nope. Now you feel lighter, more confident in your own skin, no longer overwhelmed by your internal world, actually able to trust yourself.

whoa this is it

The life you only dreamed was possible.

Life feels brighter, relationships don’t seem destined to fail, and you’re not so scared to be by yourself. The sense of safety and connection that’s alluded you forever is no longer out of reach.

And as you move through relationships that feel balanced, communication that isn’t like pulling teeth, peaceful sleep, and moments that make you cackle-laugh, you realize, whoa…this is it. This is the life I only dreamed was possible.

So what makes me the peanut butter to your jelly

in healing trauma?

Well for starters, I’ve been through enough trauma and loss to last a lifetime.

I’m much more familiar than I’d like to be with the disorientation that comes after trauma sets fire to your life. Or when it’s been building up like a million, tiny, paper cuts for as long as you can remember. It’s why I’m so adamant about being on your team to help you take back your life.

Because I know what’s waiting for you on the other side (and it’s better than you’ve imagined).

And listen, I get it. It’s pretty f*cking intimidating to face the thing you’ve been running from. It makes so much sense to wonder about how you’ll feel or what might come up as you begin taking a closer look at your story.

So if there’s one thing I for sure want you to know when it comes to us working together to heal your trauma, it’s that we move at your pace (which is usually wayyy more slow and measured than you think at first).

We’ll explore resources to help you feel safe in your body, tend to the traumatized parts of you that have been forgotten or abandoned, and find a path forward that empowers you to thrive. And we’ll take our time updating and reorganizing all the files and pieces of you that trauma has impacted.

Empathy that invites you to stop holding your breath

Our work together is customized to your unique story and needs, weaving in evidenced-based trauma-informed approaches such as EMDR therapy, Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy, somatic techniques, and nervous system regulation and embodiment practices.

Which is just the fancy way of saying, I’m present with you on the deepest level. Dialed in, sleeves-rolled up, ready to laugh and cry with you, curious and compassionate all the way. With the kind of empathy that invites you to stop holding your breath and leaves you feeling seen, really seen.

And just in case trauma’s telling you a different story…

You are not too broken. And there are no disqualifiers here. Whether the trauma happened yesterday or a lifetime ago. Whether it happened once or is layers deep. Whether you have memory of it or not…It’s never too late to break free.
