  • How is trauma recovery coaching different from therapy?
    Trauma recovery coaching is seen as a peer-to-peer relationship, and as such, we believe YOU play an active role in directing your own healing. We do not see you as someone broken, in need of fixing, but as someone having a normal reaction to an abnormal experience. As peers, we have been there, done that and may also share personal experiences when appropriate. Coaching is client-led, and we do not introduce modalities or subjects you are not wishing to explore. We are not licensed mental health providers, and do not diagnose or prescribe psychotropic medications. If you are in the midst of an active addiction or suicidal state, we may work alongside a prescribing physician or therapist, but we do not attempt to treat those conditions. A coach should empower you in finding your own answers and bring clarity through providing resources, psycho-education, validation of your experience. We deal primarily in the "NOW" providing a safe container for which to understand trauma. Our focus is on helping you function in your day-to-day living, and not on processing the past, unless it is necessary to understand current issues. Sometimes, the only reason to look back is to see how far you've come.
  • How can trauma recovery coaching help me?
    As a coach, I can help you establish goals for recovery based on YOUR needs. I do not dictate goals to you. Some examples of coaching goals could be: establishing personal safety feeling heard, validated, and understood learning how to connect with yourself and others identifying lies you've learned due to abuse and replacing them with truth identifying your strengths and maximizing them setting realistic goals and action steps to get there understanding how traumas has impacted you biological, psychologically, emotionally, and relationally developing a toolbox of strong coping techniques to facilitate personal change and make your recovery smoother connecting you with resources to meet your recovery goals identifying maladaptive coping mechanisms you may be employing and focusing on replacing them with adaptive coping mechanisms understanding how intergenerational trauma, family mythology, and family systems have affected you identifying and discovering your authentic self restoring your personal sovereignty
  • What is shadow work?
    Simply put, shadow work is the process of confronting the aspects of our personality we don't like (aspects which we repress and push down into the unconscious psyche because they are too painful to face.) The "shadow" is a concept originated by Swiss psychologist Carl Jung. He said, “One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. The latter procedure, however, is disagreeable and therefore not popular.”

  • What should I do to prepare for a reiki session?
    While it is beneficial to have an intention for your session, all you really have to do is show up in comfortable clothing. We will have a short discussion about your healing needs, and I'll take it from there. I do recommend avoiding alcohol for at least 24 hours after a session and drinking lots of water.
  • Which forms of payment do you accept?
    I accept cash and debit/credit card payments through Venmo or Zelle.
