On offer is an integrated psycho-energetic method that successfully reduces or eliminates the psychosomatic effects of post-traumatic stress disorder and accumulated chronic stress, including anxiety and depression. It works at the level of physiology, which is where true and lasting change happens.
This is a comprehensive method that utilizes the systematic awareness of the body-mind in addressing nervous system dysfunction. It is a stand-alone therapy that goes beyond psychotherapy by integrating cognitive, energetic and affective information processing grounded in presence. The process entails tracking (following in detail) the sequential experiences associated with unassimilated sensorimotor reactions, such as motor (movement) impulses, muscular tension, trembling and various other micro-movements, as well as and changes in posture, breathing and heart rate.
I specialize in working with individuals suffering from the psychosomatic and direct physiological effects of PTSD, chronic illness / pain and childhood neglect or abuse including sexual abuse. I also work deeply with the ALANON / ACA community.
As a survivor of chronic illness and childhood trauma I have taken great interest in healing myself naturally.
This process led me to study both the Zhineng Qigong roots of classical Chinese medicine developed by Dr. Ming Pang and the Somatic Experiencing ™ model developed by Dr. Peter Levine. My work is strongly influenced by Dr. Stephen Porges’ Polyvagal Theory.
I have been working with individuals privately and in groups since 2007. Currently I work closely with integrative medical professionals in California and privately with individuals, helping patients recover their energy and interest in living a vibrant life.
My practice has expanded to include diverse client groups that include sexually abused individuals, ALANON/ACA participants, VFW including Vietnam and Gulf, and especially those who are seeking to integrate the beauty and meaning of life beyond trauma. I facilitate weekly and bi-monthly non-dual inquiry meetings that are therapeutic for all of my client groups.
