Transforming PAIN to HEALING through Primal Lifestyle Adaptation


From a very young age, I was consumed by questioning the meaning of life, a hunger to understand pain and suffering and the resilience of the human Spirit.


My early childhood experiences of trauma and unexpected loss haunted me throughout my teenage years and early 20s, until I could no longer distract from the pain, and the initiation to my healing journey was born.

I have spent the last 16 years training in clinical psychology, somatic psychotherapy, EMDR, attachment trauma and energy (pranic) healing, Hakomi mindfulness and holistic nutrition.

I am not a traditional talk therapist. I believe sharing our story is an essential part of the healing journey. We long to be seen, heard and witnessed in our stories and if we want long lasting change and transformation, we must be willing and ready to transform our stories from a nervous system point of view.

Family Lineage/Ancestral Work


Our childhood trauma, pain and memories are stored in the cells and tissues of our nervous system. Without intervention at the nervous system level, we will likely continue to hardwire painful core beliefs and feelings that are married to the our traumatic memories.

Epigentic research shows that trauma can be generational and passed down through our ancestral lineage. The traumas of our parents, grandparents, and even great grandparents can live in symptoms of unexplained depression, anxiety, fears, phobias, obsessive thoughts and physical symptoms. Traumatic memories are transmitted through chemical changes in DNA.

Though it may be scary and painful to face our trauma memories, with the right resources, space and compassion, we can choose to let go of our past so we can step into a more peaceful and loving present state of being.
