Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Welcome to my profile based on my website, River of Life Healing Arts. I call it this because the river, like the soul, has its own wisdom in finding its path. In our healing work together, I invite you to join me in the flow of life, and fully experience the wise currents of your own being. In indigenous traditions there is a sacred process people go through when they are ready to let go of their old, hurting stories and to embrace their new story. This is the practice of transformation. When we take the leap to be our true selves, the road rises to support us in ways that we couldn’t have imagined. I’ll help you learn to hear, trust and follow your wisdom, and tap into your heartfelt and gut-sense knowing. Together we will find your new and beautiful story. I’ve learned transformation, respect and love from the inside-out. What I know in my bones and heart I offer to you: I’m a Certified Hakomi Therapist; I use Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and EMDR to resolve trauma; our palette includes movement, Continuum, imagery, creative expression, sandtray, dreamwork, indigenous perspectives, and biodynamic cranial-sacral work. I offer a sliding scale and accept some insurance.
