Tending the Roots is all about exploring and understanding what makes you, you. Your uniqueness is influenced by your values, passions, relationships, environment, and experiences. The stress and discomfort of wearing our many masks can be absolutely exhausting. Yet, these masks are what have helped you survive up until this point. To tend the roots, we will look at your past and present with grace, kindness, and gentle curiosity in order to help you decide what you want to continue tending, and what may need a new strategy.
My expertise is in working with those who have experienced sexual abuse, minor sex trafficking, and those with complex trauma. I utilize EMDR, IFS informed EMDR, mindfulness techniques (DBT), and ego state work to pair with your expertise in your experience. This pairing is a true partnership, needing both of us committed to do the work.
Your experience is yours. You deserve to make sense of it in order to have better awareness and control of your life. Taking off your masks to see the real you is true vulnerability. Your willingness to do this work with me already demonstrates your bravery, strength, and determination. It will be an honor to work with you.
