Are you someone who has faced the daunting impact of childhood sexual abuse or sexual assault; struggled with the scars of early childhood attachment issues, experienced something that shook you to the core of your nervous system and now you feel frozen in time? Or do you battle the heavy burden of depression and anxiety?

"Trauma is not the story of something that happened back then. It's the current reprint of that pain, horror, and fear living inside people" Bessel Van der Kolk, The Body Keeps the Score.
It's about how your system has been impacted and its response.

Overcoming Trauma: Your system is built for survival, but sometimes it gets stuck and unable to process the event fully so it integrates into your system as a memory. We call this unresolved distress or unresolved trauma. Emotional, sexual, physical, and financial trauma wounds that remain open and unresolved can linger and cause several blocks in your life. You may feel stuck, frozen, powerless, overly emotional, or find yourself wanting to run away or shut down from friends, family, or life.

Healing Childhood Scars: Early childhood attachment issues can create deep wounds connected to self-worth. It can impact relationships, self-esteem, and overall well-being. Sometimes it's hard to know who you are and how you feel. You may feel disconnected from your body, yourself, and your world. It feels hard to find where you belong. You may overcompensate in relationships by appeasing or people pleasing - putting others' needs over yours. You may find that your emotional state is deeply connected and dependent on those you are connected to. Sometimes it feels like you're looking for love in all the wrong places. 

Defeating Depression: The weight of depression can make even the simplest tasks feel impossible. It's as if a dark cloud hovers over your life, casting a shadow on everything you do.

Conquering Anxiety: Anxiety can be paralyzing, causing panic attacks, sleepless nights, and an overwhelming sense of unease. It keeps you from fully enjoying life's precious moments.

Whether depression or anxiety, we believe there is an underlying root at the core. We endeavor to help you uncover and heal at the root so you can experience deep and lasting change and growth.
