Q/A ABOUT MY TRAINING, MODALITIES, AND TOOLS
SOMATIC HEALING is a holistic approach to talk therapy approach with an emphasis on integrating the mental, emotional, spiritual and physical aspects of self. Utilizing the breath and body awareness, I guide you to deepen understanding and connect with the body's autonomic nervous system to regulate stress and to heighten sensations of joy, pleasure, and ease.
HYPNOTHERAPY bypasses the rational mind and ego, creating a relaxed willingness for inner exploration. In a semi-conscious state, I guide you to the root of your stress and stuck behaviors to effect deep healing. We do this by recovering parts of self-hidden beneath the surface, accessing history, present knowing and inner wisdom.
PARTS THERAPY & INNER ARCHETYPES activation is achieved in the relaxed state of hypnosis. Because of adverse socialization, there are parts of self that need recognition, healing, and boundaries. In hypnosis, we can assist parts-of-self in need of connection. In trance states can also access multidimensional self and activate the parts that have inner knowing and wisdom.
OUR INNER-CHILD can be healed in hypnotherapy. In a relaxed semi-conscious state, we invite your subconscious mind to take us to the origin of pain or a non-serving belief. Often, the parts of us that come forward have been stuck in a memory of the past and are in need of integration with the present self. Re-parenting your inner-child through love and connection releases unwanted patterns in your adult life.
PAST LIFE REGRESSION can heal present experiences. In some cases, I engage past life therapy to safely guide you in recalling and healing the cause of your current situation, to release karmic patterns. Additionally, you can go back to previous lifetimes for resourcing and connect to power, talents, feelings, and gifts you possessed in other lives. Trusting what is revealed helps create an understanding of your present situation and promotes shifts.

FREE-WILL SOVEREIGN HEALING METHOD
My Free-Will Sovereign Activation Method is a five-step process to engage my clients in recognizing intellectually, emotionally and spiritually that they are the total creators of their reality. Acknowledging one's full agency as creator, allows acceptance and responsibility and their capacity for transformation. The process is as follows:
Shadow awareness is obtained by understanding the ego's tendency to put one’s self in a state where one identifies solely with the negative story and is disconnected from personal power. This is evident when we experience overwhelming feelings of sadness, grief, jealousy, anger, etc. During this time of overwhelment, one may be prone to use "I AM" followed by the shadow condition. I guide my clients to see that state of overwhelment as a wounded part-of-self coming up to the forefront of consciousness to be seen and healed.
The moment the shadow self is identified, the condition or feeling is to be seen as a part of self in need of care. In this way, I support my clients into actively splitting their awareness into a two-part perspective: "I see a part of me feels isolated, frustrated, etc.". When we understand that only a-part-of-me feels this way, not all-of-me, discernment begins loving inquiry to self: “Who is that part? Where is it centered in my body? What does this part of me have to say? What does this part need?"
Following discernment of the parts-of-self, we are asked to radically accept, connect and unconditionally love all the parts that have surfaced. In offering steady love, that no one other than self can offer, there is healing. Offering compassion for self is what is needed to resolve the learning theme. By generously loving the parts-of-self that have attracted anything that feels unwanted in one's life experience, we clear the impulse to claim victimhood and can find a passage off the drama-trauma cycle, allowing us to transition back to wellbeing.
Following the discernment and benevolence processes, I guide my clients to step into empowerment by setting fluid boundaries. The offering of boundaries is based on the discerned feelings regarding the body, one's work, relationships, use of technology/ media and environment: This offering for self may also include a communication or a boundary offered to others.
At this stage, one has discerned, loved and set boundaries; the parts-of-self are comfortable, relaxed, safe and protected. An inner knowing of wholeness is now available, and there is space in one's being to expand. There is what I call a 'graduation' from a lesson. At this time, my client can now begin to see and to know differently. There are a quietness and access to a broader perspective of the Soul-mind. Together, we call forth and anchor this awareness to activate one's highest-and-best-self.
