Brain based ways to heal trauma and expand your possibilities

    ~Based in Hinsdale, IL; Serving the church worldwide~


    A mindfulness based, relationally focused, neurobiological approach to healing trauma.

    Are you ready to feel more yourself again? Often life's circumstances, whether traumatic stress, compassion fatigue, church hurt or other distress, can cause parts of us to go into hiding. You might have been a really creative child but now feel afraid to take the risks that true creativity requires or maybe you used to love baseball and now experience intense anxiety every time you're at bat. Perhaps you used to love spending time with people but now find yourself guarded and staying in more often than not. If you feel you have lost an important part of yourself or would like to break through a barrier that is somehow holding you captive, I would love to help you with that.


    Safe & Sound Protocol

    A complimentary listening therapy to powerfully enhance the benefits of other personal growth work.

    Would you like to feel safer, think more clearly and connect more fully? If you’re anything like me, the answer is Yes please!! I mean, who wouldn’t want those things?


    SSP stands for Safe and Sound Protocol and utilizes Polyvagal Theory to deliver specially filtrated music which acts as a neural exercise for the brain, growing in one's nervous system a sense of calm and a feeling of wellbeing. Clients report effects such as greater creativity, the ability to "see" more clearly, reduced startle reflex, more confidence with others, greater focus, and more.


    Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)

    A structured, curriculum based therapy that helps clients release old stories that are keeping them stuck in PTSD.

    If you are a motivated, Do-It-Yourself kind of learner, who enjoys worksheets and homework between sessions, then Cognitive Processing Therapy may be perfect for you!


    CPT is a highly effective way to heal PTSD, that works by helping clients to shift their feelings about the trauma/what happened through practiced ways of thinking differently and interacting with the world around them.


    This unique format allows you the opportunity to combine independent learning with one on one therapy sessions, offered either virtually or in person (if you live or work locally) and in between session email coaching, as needed.
