Dance When you're broken open.
Dance if you've torn the bandage off..
Dance in the middle of the fighting.
Dance in your blood.
Dance when you're perfectly free.
a little about me...
Since I was a child, I felt Intrigued and curious about the experience of others and life itself.
I loved to listen and to inquire with my whole heart, hearing what was being shared beyond words,
and leaning into what was unspoken.
I did not put a name or context to what I was experiencing since it felt so natural to me.
This joy continued to guide my choices and express itself in a variety of activities throughout my youth
and adult life. It was not until much later in life that I put a name to my experience as deep listening and was able to recognize the benefits it had to offer.
In the summer of 2007, I awoke from a coma after surviving an aircraft accident. The course of my life changed in that instant. I awoke in a hospital with many broken bones and a variety of other injuries and challenges, including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and a Traumatic Brain Injury. I was determined to find my way back to health, sanity, and joy. It required a lot of permission, reflection, love, and support. It was through this healing journey that I discovered and benefited from craniosacral therapy and meditation. These two practices helped me slow down, listen, and tune into my physical, emotional and mental states. Each was an integral part of my healing from PTSD, TBI, and a variety of shifting symptoms and tension patterns held in my body.
I have received and experienced many different traditional and holistic modalities in order to arrive where I am today. Although I cannot claim to have found any one modality that heals all, Craniosacral therapy was an essential and consistent support to healing my whole being. It helped me to access states of stillness and rest that I could not otherwise access with my sped-up, compensated nervous system, and for trauma recovery and brain injuries, this is so important. Other supportive resources were a variety of somatic & psychological-based therapies, water aerobics, meditation, singing, dancing, and building supportive communities.
Becoming a Craniosacral therapist offered me a path that would continue to support my healing and my relationship to myself and others, as well as support myself financially. It is a training in a way of being ~ a practice that relieves stress and brings one back to a state of health and balance. I feel honored and humbled to be able to offer this healing modality to others. It’s work that continues to benefit me and clients greatly and, thus, ripples out to everyone in my life.
