Welcome

Spiritually Oriented EMDR Therapy for Women Experiencing Creative and Sexual Block

You are here because there is some deep longing within you that you can barely hold. You know you are overflowing with ideas and gifts but there always seems to be something in the way: schedules, the seemingly frantic exigencies of daily life, caring for others, and maybe even trauma, deep creative wounds, and your own fear of how brightly you will shine, how much your life will expand, when you step beyond what you currently know.

You are meant to experience deep, sensuous fulfillment, and to own the power of your sacred sexuality and creative gifts. Maybe someone shamed you (or even traumatized you) for expressing these high voltage feminine potencies somewhere along the way. Maybe you don't even know what it looks like because there is such a dearth of examples of women and feminine beings who walk on this planet fully empowered, fully expressed, sexually awakened, and in full ownership of their sacredness and creative potency.

"“When women reassert their relationship with the wildish nature, they are gifted with a permanent and internal watcher, a knower, a visionary, an oracle, an inspiratrice, an intuitive, a maker, a creator, an inventor, and a listener who guide, suggest, and urge vibrant life in the inner and outer world.”"
-Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes

You've come to the right place. I have stood right where you are standing, shutting myself down and drying myself up to stay pleasing to others and safe. Unaware of how to access the full flower of my sacred sexuality because of layers of trauma, cultural/systemic shame, and no idea where to find guidance and examples. I am on this journey with you, and so are many others.

Have you ever been introduced to the concept that spiritual, sexual and creative energies are all one erotic energy, or different expressions of the same holy longing? By deepening your relationship with your physical and energy bodies, you can soften open the divine channel you were born to be in this world, unwinding deep patterns of constriction, and layers of both personal and collective trauma.

"I believe that magic is art and that art, whether it be writing, music, sculpture, or any other form is literally magic. Art is, like magic, the science of manipulating symbols, words, or images, to achieve changes in consciousness."

As a spiritually and somatically oriented EMDR therapist, I combine an awareness of the importance of a sacred, deep relationship to the body with cutting-edge trauma-healing therapy to assist you in coming fully alive and fully expressed in all your glorious creative and erotic potency. I'm also training currently as a Shamanic Energy Medicine Practitioner with Alberto Villoldo and am thrilled to humbly weave the ancient ways of healing the energy body into my somatic, spiritually oriented and neuroscience-based therapy approach.

It is my absolute joy to watch women and feminine beings soften open, come alive, and access the full range of their creative, erotic, sacred power, living wild, unique, authentic lives. I believe this is medicine for the whole planet. I am proudly LGBTQIA+ affirming. My asexual friends are not precluded from finding sacred, erotic opening as Eros is not necessarily always sexual. I sometimes use oracle cards and invite my canine consort, Bowie, to join our sessions.

I’m an Integrative EMDR Psychotherapist in Orange County, but you might also call me an inner child whisperer, fairy godmother, Alan Moore-dork, ultra-Pisces, and Dionysian artist. I help artists and creatives who want more than anything to show up fully in life, in love or in their life’s work, but get hung up because of some seemingly impenetrable thicket of self-doubt, apathy, anxiety, depression, or maybe even trauma or terror.
