The reason why I'm so passionate about my work is...
During the summer of 2007,
I awoke from a coma in a hospital
and was told i survived a plane crash.
In the blink of an eye,
my life had drastically changed.
In one moment, I knew myself to be
an alaskan bush pilot, ice hockey playing woman,
who lived life at full speed ahead.
In the next,
I was in a hospital bed with chest tubes draining a collapsed lung, IV lines, many broken bones & trauma as well as a traumatic brain injury.
Surrounded with support of medical staff, family and friends, I slowly began a healing journey that transformed my life and who i knew myself to be. Traversing depths of heart and soul, I was determined to find my way back to health, sanity, and joy. It was excruciating at times, and required a lot of permission, reflection, love, and support. Everything I had thought was reliable, stable and true shifted and left me feeling angry, confused, and lost. My heart needed new answers to explain what had happened to me. Gratefully I found support from teachers within the tibetan buddhist tradition who offered me understanding i was looking for through contemplation and meditation. This became a primary support which helped me begin to mend the pieces of my shattered heart and soul.
My body too needed mending, thankfully I've received a myriad of traditional medical and holistic healing modalities over many years in order to arrive where I am today. Although I cannot claim to have found a modality that heals all, craniosacral therapy, was a powerful and essential support to healing my whole body and being. It offered my sped-up, traumatized nervous system the opportunity to access deep states of rest that I could not otherwise access on my own. This allowed the trauma in my body to begin to unwind and brought me back to a state of health and balance. Other supports worth mentioning were various somatic & psychological-based therapies, meditation, sound, dance and singing practices, water aerobics, and most importantly was building a supportive community.
Later, I decided to get certified as a biodynamic craniosacral therapist. Having experienced its benefits first hand, I knew it would continue to support my healing simultaneously with others. I feel honored to be able to offer this profound and restorative healing modality in the world. I am also excited to bring my passion and skills into the world via natural facial rejuvenation, coaching, and teaching yoga and meditation.
