I believed we are living in a traumatized world, which is greatly contributing to our current mental health crisis. For some, this mental health crisis is a spiritual crisis. My work with clients is often at the intersection of mental and spiritual health. Because I am a medium, I sometimes receive "downloads" of information to share with clients. When clients in spiritual crisis find me, I often receive messages for them.
Trauma is a body condition with psychological consequences. Trauma gets stored in subcortical regions of the brain, close to the brainstem and central nervous system. This is why so many of trauma's symptoms are physical (racing heart, flashbacks, fight/flight/freeze). Of all treatments I've learned, brainspotting is by far the most efficacious for trauma. I also provide Ketamine assisted psychotherapy (KAP).
I specialized in treating adult children of abuse. Abuse in childhood changes the brain. Fortunately, we now know that the brain is neuroplastic; it can heal itself. With the right treatment approach, the brains of those who were abused in childhood can change.
The underlying premise of CBT is that thoughts leads the feelings and feelings lead to actions. We can learn to identify faulty thoughts that unnecessarily lead to emotional distress. We can learn to intervene in our own thought process to reframe a faulty thought in real time.
I am a Brainspotting Consultant, meaning I can certify other brainspotters. Brainspotting successfully treats most conditions, from depression and PTSD to anxiety and OCD. I use brainspotting more than any other treatment modality. I recently developed a new protocol pairing low-dose Ketamine with Brainspotting for faster processing and healing.

We are hardwired for attachment to our parents or guardians from the moment we are conceived. We could not survive without them. When this hardwiring is not met in childhood due to adoption, abuse, or neglect, we can often not attach to others. Corrective attachment work can re-establish what they did not receive in childhood for many people.
Induced After Death Communication, developed by Dr. Botkin in 1995 while working at the Chicago Veterans Hospital, reduces the sadness and pain associated with grief using a modified EMDR protocol. Most clients experience a deep and loving connection with a deceased loved one through one or more of their five senses. It is a profoundly healing modality.

Induced After Death Communication (IADC) was developed by Dr. Allen Botkin in 1995 while he worked at the VA Hospital of Chicago. This therapy consists of a 90-minute session on two consecutive days. It helps grieving people experience a reconnection through one or more senses (tactile feeling, hearing, seeing, etc.) with a deceased loved one, resulting in healing deep sadness associated with the grief.

Codependency can be very confusing and debilitating. It is when what you think, say, or do depends on what you THINK another person will think, say, or do. You don't feel free because you base decisions on things that are out of your control, nor will they ever be in your control. This is because we can never control what another person thinks, says, or does. I will show you an "Area of Control" model to help you stay in your area of control.
