About two years ago, I thought my whole world was ending. I had done some internal work that was changing my life, but I also discovered something else. I discovered my shadow. Shadow material are things we ignore, deny, or repress that create stuck places from the trauma in our lives. If you have ever felt reactive or said, “where did that come from,” most likely you are experiencing things you have repressed that are misbehaving.
Focusing is the tool I most used when dealing with my shadow and learning to be authentic and present.
Focusing is a body-oriented process of self-awareness that promotes emotional healing. It involves recognizing how you feel and where you feel it. I can lead you through a simple session in person or online to help you begin to shift your stuck places and help you along in your journey toward wellness.
Your body already is trying to speak to you about past trauma and pain.
Focusing sessions are like a counseling session, but a little more focused and contemplative. Let me lead you through this simple process to help you along in your journey to be where you are and who are.
I know this sounds like a commercial, but I am just trying to say this helped me and I can help you get out of those stuck places. You are the hero to your story, but you are not alone, allow me to guide you toward greater authenticity and presence through focusing.
