Everyone has a light at the center of their soul, wanting and waiting to shine bright out into the world. This is the most challenging for all of us during periods of transition, when facing a big decision or during the down times we all experience.
Working from the bottom up, we will access your body, your spirit and intuition as tools and guides to clear away the debris of negative thoughts or emotions that are blocking you. We will work with what arises and move it out and away from your being. From there, I will support and guide you to a life of purpose, passion and peace.
What I know about what helps:
Encouragement, support and empathy. Honesty and integrity. Inspiration and guidance in how to change. Learning the skills in transformational communication and healing techniques. I provide all that, but I am no pushover. As my clients say, I will “hold hand while I kick your butt.”
Shift your point of view, dissolve your critical inner voice, develop respect for yourself and others, decrease emotional reactions and gain control of your attention so you can focus on your chosen future. Developing healthy boundaries and effective, authentic communication are also imperative. Learning when and how to say no, when to create distance and when to bring people closer. Identifying and using the wisdom of your body that provide you with important messages. Learning spiritual practices can help release the habits that are keeping you stuck and not serving you to create the love, life and expansiveness you are seeking.
How do I do what I do? What will the experience be like for you working with me in therapy?
I have created the unique system of The Wise Woman Path to Love, to Spirituality, to Health and to Career using a step-by-step process of Mind, Body and Spiritual Assessment, Realignment and Strengthening to provide the maximum transformation for you. The Wise Woman Path provides a cornucopia of approaches which we use in tandem, including: Hypnotherapy, Yoga and Somatic (body-based) healing, EMDR, EFT (tapping,) reiki energy release, shamanic healing and spirituality, cognitive restructuring, along with Life Coaching.
Working with me will be safe, welcoming, intense at times, funny at others, and different than ANY therapy you have ever done before. We commit to turning over all the stones that need to be turned, to uncover what needs to be revealed.
Shifting beliefs, Hypnotherapy & The Subconscious Mind
Hypnotherapy is the application of therapeutic techniques while in a deep state of relaxation. While in a trance state, the conscious mind becomes quiet, allowing access to the highly suggestible subconscious mind. Hypnosis is a safe, deeply relaxed state of consciousness with focused concentration in which relaxed brainwaves, alpha, theta, and delta, can be reached. Hypnotherapy uses this natural state for healing and change, where resolution is possible of core emotional, physical and spiritual issues.
We will uncover your operating beliefs and release those that are limiting and not serving you or your highest purpose. This allows you an intimate view into your thoughts and beliefs to empower you to change or release them.
Yoga and Body Healing Approaches
The Wise Woman Path Yoga and Body-Based Somatic Approaches focus on self-awareness through physical postures and breathing, along with yoga philosophy. You will experience strength and ease through body alignment to:
- listen to the wisdom in your body
- cultivate awareness of breath as a tool for awareness and healing of self
- deepen the connection to your inner self
- discover how habits limit you and how you can change them
- transform your life by working with the core principles of yoga philosophy
Focusing on the body, you learn to notice sensations and feelings that arise. Tight or compromised areas may be where you are in some way holding onto something. Whenever you have had painful or traumatic experiences, you carry not only the memory and feelings, but the sensations and physical responses, as well.
Reiki Energy Healing
Energy healing is one of the oldest forms of healing in the world. Reiki is a hands-on energy practice, which provides relaxation, comfort, a sense of well-being, and supports many healing processes. Reiki was developed in the 1920’s in Japan, and spread to the West in the 1930’s. The Japanese word “Reiki” translates as “universal life force,” as in the Chinese word “chi ” and “prana” in the yogic tradition, believed to flow in the meridians of the body.
The human body generates an electromagnetic field. Because energy medicine practitioners can sense electromagnetic field imbalances before they affect the physical body, individuals can benefit from energy medicine prior to the emergence of illness.
In a Wise Woman Path reiki session, I will assess the body’s energy field to detect any imbalances. Hands are strategically placed lightly on the fully-clothed body in a number of locations, or may be placed a few inches off the body. There is usually a feeling of relaxation and warmth. Treatments are provided on a standard massage table. A full treatment can take 45-60 minutes, but shorter treatments are possible and beneficial as well. Following a treatment, it is important to increase hydration in order to enhance detoxification.
Shamanic Healing and Spirituality
Shamanism is believed to be the oldest religion in the world, dating back to as long as 150,000 years ago, but the exact time is unknown since it is older than historical records and includes traditions passed down through apprenticeship. Shamanic Healing includes accessing the wisdom and guidance of the spirits, and is used in many forms in indigenous cultures across the globe. We can access some of these teachings, and other forms of spirituality on The Wise Woman Path.
