Guided meditations are a great way to mitigate stress, calm the nervous system, increase creativity, and help you tap into your greatest potential. From ancient contemplative practices to the latest in neuroscience, I offer individually-tailored mindfulness support to help you heal, and, more importantly, help you thrive.
My artwork is grounded in the beauty - and complexity - of the natural world. The animal totem series brings together the power of my allies (deer, hawk and many others) to help you interface with the creatures that bring wisdom for your life and your health.
Trauma happens anytime our system is overwhelmed and we are unable to process the experience and come back to center. It’s at the root of most unhealthy patterns, addictions, and difficulties in our lives. I’ve spent a decade learning how to understand trauma, and how to heal it - through counseling, Polyvagal Therapy, and Energy Healing (VortexHealing ®). If unprocessed trauma is keeping you stuck, we can find the modality that is right for you.
Using guided meditation and gentle touch, this work helps to settle the nervous system and release any trauma still held in the body. As we work with your autonomic nervous system, you’ll be able to find the ways in which your fight/flight/freeze is always set to “on” and we’ll work with your physiology and bring in social co-regulation skills to reset these unhelpful patterns. 60-minute sessions are available in my Charlottesville office.
