Beyond Trauma 

12 session, 2 hours each, that incorporate the insights of neuroscience with the latest understanding of trauma and PTSD.  The program is based on the principles of relational therapy; it uses cognitive-behavioral techniques (CBT), mindfulness, expressive arts, and body-oriented exercises (including yoga). This curriculum can be adapted to adolescent females.

Healing Trauma (Shorter Intervention)

6 Session, 2 Hours each, 6 session adaptation of the best selling evidence-based Beyond Trauma.  It is particularly designed for settings requiring a shorter intervention: jails, domestic violence agencies, and sexual assault services.

Beyond Anger 

21 session, 2 hours each, first manualized intervention for women that focuses on anger, as well as the trauma they may have experienced.  It utilizes a variety of evidence-based therapeutic strategies (i.e., psycho-education, role playing, mindfulness activities, cognitive behavioral restructuring and grounding skills for trauma triggers)

Helping Men Recover or Building Resilience (Facilitated with Zach Huntley)

18 Session, 2 hours each, is the first gender-responsive, trauma-informed treatment program for men… This curriculum addresses what is often missing in prevailing treatment modes: a clear understanding of the impact of male socialization on the recovery process, a consideration of the relational needs of men, and a focus on the issues of abuse and trauma.

Exploring Trauma (Shorter Intervention) 

6 Session, 2 Hours each,  new intervention designed to address some of the issues specific to men’s trauma:  men’s silence surrounding abuse, the impact of male socialization on men’s responses, the risk of victims becoming abusers, and the need to understand men’s shame and fear to explore trauma.  Topics include: understanding trauma and its process; trauma’s impact on the inner self (thoughts, feelings, beliefs) and on the outer self (behaviors and relationships); and coping and calming strategies.

Nurtured Heart Approach (NHA) Parenting Classes

6 Session, 2 Hours each, The Nurtured Heart Approach® is a relationship-focused methodology founded strategically in The 3 Stands™ for helping children (and adults) build their Inner Wealth™ and use their intensity in successful ways.

Includes weekly sessions either in person, phone or Skype and a supplement/herbal consultation if needed.
Unlimited email and text correspondence along with an individualized program that is designed specifically to meet the unique needs of a client or group.

All programs consist of four, 60 minute, pre-scheduled sessions each month accompanied by herbal recommendations if deemed appropriate.

I will assign homework each week that is pertinent to the work we are doing together.

I will facilitate sessions that are specific to the needs of the client(s) and at times, with consent, participate in the dynamic outside of a traditional setting if I feel it is of benefit to the coaching experiencing ( ex. attending a client’s musical performance, home visits, conjoint session with family members, collaborating with other practitioners involved in client’s life, etc. ).

In between sessions, clients have virtually unlimited access to me. This means – if you need me, I’m there for you – This can be via email, text or 15 min phone check-in. This provides an opportunity for your greatest learning at the time that you need something. I can arrange a call within a 24hr period if not sooner.

It is my role to offer you a safe, inspiring and non-judgmental relationship where you can explore parts of yourself that you otherwise have struggled to discover and actualize.
