Head of Trauma & Experiential Healing
Several years ago I was in a very remote area of India conducting my thesis fieldwork research. I allowed myself to be embedded in a specific community to explore the trauma healing properties of meditation and to gain understanding of the guru culture. To my horror I found myself a hostage in a foreign country complete with armed guards and daily brainwashing sessions. Eventually, I escaped, made my way back to the U.S., only to discover months later the trauma of this experience caused post-traumatic stress. Healing from this experience spearheaded my calling to work in the field of trauma and with veterans.
I have had the privilege and honor to work with the a veterans in numerous capacities My work with veterans who suffer with post-traumatic stress has gifted me a wealth of knowledge in all areas of trauma healing. More importantly this work has allowed me to follow my true calling to help warriors as a body soul healer.
I specialize in serving veterans, and first-responder’s who often silently suffer from the numerous demands of combat and service. My approach relies heavily on current science combined with indigenous and shamanic healing practices. I am proud to say that after working with over 400 courageous warriors and first responder’s I have never lost a man.
“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes” C. W. Jung
Mandala therapy is just one of many alternative healing activities I use to help veterans move through trauma and the emotional blocks they face.
Mandalas provide a psychic snapshot of our current unconscious state. Comparison of mandalas at the start and end of each cohort is no less than astounding. The difference is like night and day. Warriors can experience profound psychic transformations in quantum leaps.
