Therapist InfoAbout Me:
I am a Holistic Psychotherapist and Life Coach. I specialize in Soul Work, Conscious Relationships, shadow work, shamanic soul retrieval, inner child healing, and plant ceremony integration. It has been a honor to be in service in this way. I love this work! I have 15 years of experience midwifing clients through their shadow work, and helping them align with their Higher Self/Soul, as well as helping couples heal and thrive through Conscious Love. I’ve more recently added the offering of plant ceremony integration work, which I am very excited about and have a beautiful process for.Description of Services:
•Soul Work/ Shadow Work: Shamanic Soul Retrieval and/or inner child healing are part of this process. Soul retrieval is about calling upon your own best nurturer- your multidimensional Higher Self, and then retrieving lost soul parts that have disassociated you during painful or soul traumatizing experiences.
The purpose of this is to heal your core wounds and unresolved traumas (including those that you may not realize are holding you back) that keep you living in survivor mode, which is fear-based, and often accompanied by addictive and escapist tendencies.
The goal is to bring back your full essence, so that you may be in your authentic power, where you can let your Higher Self and Soul guide you and help you discern and navigate the path to your most optimal future.
My process involves guided visualizations, shamanic Journeying, journaling exercises, quantum physics and mindfulness practices, Tibetan Buddhist breath work practices, meditations connecting you with your higher self and the elementals, and energy healing techniques.
•Pre/Post Plant Ceremony Integration: This has the same components as the Soul Work/Shadow Work process described above, with the addition of having me to help you prepare for and then process and integrate your work with the plant medicine. I have personally participated in and had incredible healing from ceremonies involving psilocybins, Ayahuasca, and Peyote.
This, along with my 15 years of experience and research in energy healing, Jungian soul work, shamanic journeying, and ecotherapy have given me a deep understanding of what is helpful for integrating, retaining, and continuing to heal and evolve after a plant ceremony.
•Conscious Relationship: this is a beautiful process for individuals or couples. Here you will come to understand your Soul mission as it pertains to your relationships. You will learn conscious love - how to keep your higher self in the driver’s seat - in your relationships. You will learn how to have “nurturing talks” rather than relationship, eroding resentment pile ups, and or unproductive conflict. Nurturing talks are a lovely speaker - listener communication technique that I created back in 2009.
In this process you will learn about the common patterns couples can fall into that erode their relationships, attachment styles, love languages, navigating cultural differences, sexuality differences, parenting differences, and how to have a balance of autonomy and connectedness.
For parents struggling with challenges with children, teenagers, or adult children I teach conscious parenting. I myself am the mother of a young adult son and a teenaged daughter. And since I have had to navigate my own parenting trials and tribulations, some of the best morsels I have to share are in this area of conscious parenting!Credentials & Certifications: Holistic Life Coach Licensed by the Global Association of Holistic PsychotherapyLicenses: California MFT license # 53645

My ProcessOverview of Experience:
Preparation for plant ceremony differs depending on who is guiding the ceremony, what soul desire or issue the participant is grappling with that they are seeking guidance with during the ceremony, and what plant medicine is being consumed.
One constant is the need for having an intention prior to the ceremony. This is an area that you may or may not need guidance with, but it’s always helpful to process what it is you are experiencing that you are seeking healing and guidance with prior to bringing it to a plant ceremony- especially if you are also dealing with unresolved trauma. It’s helpful and at time’s essential to have done some work around that trauma with a Psychotherapist, so that you are empowered with a protocol for how to move through any trigger or grief that comes up during the ceremony.
Generally speaking, there is a need to refrain from using alcohol or any hard drugs for anywhere from 3 to 10 days prior to the ceremony. There are also diet restrictions, depending on which medicine is going to be consumed, particularly in the case of Ayahuasca.
Not losing sight of the insights and messages that you receive during the ceremony and creating regular practices to help you retain and make use of these insights is another helpful element of working with an integration therapist line myself.
Shamanic Journeying with the spirit of the plant medicine is a beautiful way to continue to work with that medicine long after the ceremony. I can guide you on these shamanic journeys, either in person or over zoom. In this process, you can continue to get messages and healing from the spirit of that plant medicine.
I also find that plant ceremonies are often a catalyst for shamanic soul retrieval, for identifying the core wound that needs to be healed, and then calling that lost soul part back. This process involves breath work, journaling, guided visualization, and healing with the elementals and outdoors in nature.Intake Process:
