Maybe you’ve hit an impasse in your life – something has changed or maybe you’ve realized that you have some patterns that aren’t serving you anymore.
Eve (she/her) provides a warm, caring environment in which to support clients in rebalancing, reframing, and cultivating understanding about themselves and their needs in order to triumph over life’s challenges and past traumas, reduce suffering, and build quality lives.
Eve has worked with a variety of clients and enjoys empowering them to find within themselves their innate wisdom and ability to heal and move through difficult times and old patterns that no longer serve them.
She believes that no one is “broken,” but that, through support, we can learn new skills, metabolize our traumas/wounding and integrate their lessons, and find ways to align ourselves with our deepest values to feel more whole and cultivate joy and meaning in our lives.
Eve is trained in a variety of treatment approaches with a main approach in somatic/body-focused Somatic Experiencing, as well as other embodied interventions including mindfulness training, meditation, breathwork, and yoga, which she integrates into talk therapy in order to offer integrative healing for holistic mind-body-spirit wellness.
I am a healer.
I create and hold space for somatic, embodied, earth-rooted metabolization and integration of wounding ..
.. by others
- to us in our lifetime as attachment/relational trauma, grief/loss
- to us as physical, emotional, psychological, sexual, and racial abuse/violence
- to others that we witnessed (secondary trauma)
- to others that we inherited in our ancestral line (transgenerational trauma) or while in utero
.. by events e.g.
- high impact/accidents, inescapable attack, natural disasters, shock
- injury, illness, surgery
- manmade disasters, war
.. by society through
- colonization and intentional stripping of our cultures and spiritual roots of origin (yes even people co-opted into the divisive construct of “whiteness”)
- white-bodied supremacy, colonization, and institutionalized discrimination (against any demographic)
- internalization of capitalism, grind culture, shame culture, and scarcity mindset
- patriarchal, puritanical belief systems
What I do:
- support renegotiating of traumatic experiences
- integration instead of continued fragmentation
- calling on the healing practices and resiliency of our Ancestors
- shadow work
- honoring and trusting nervous systems, attachment systems, and survivor stories
- attachment/gentle/conscious parenting and reparenting
- slowing down and looking for coherence, settling
- validating all the ways you’ve coped to survive to this point
What I don’t do:
- exposure therapy that floods the body/mind, overwhelming the nervous system, as a way to “desensitize”
- trauma narratives that give minute details of the trauma story (in fact with SE we are able to work successfully with very few details)
- pathologize, focus on diagnoses, criticize old coping patterns
