Resolving Patterns

You are enough. You have enough. You are safe.

Would you like to feel this more deeply in your core?

Patterns prevent you from being in the present moment. Once the unresolved emotions and beliefs underlying a pattern are fully cleared, the change is permanent. 

All problems, issue, challenges, all emotional states can be traced back to one core emotion: fear. There are five universal fears human organisms have. When these fears are initially triggered without the resources to handle them, they continue to recur in our present life. This is the nervous systems’ s way to try to resolve them.

Feeling frequently anxious, depressed, jealous, uncertain or angry, dwelling on the negative, not feeling good enough, not having enough, not feeling safe, mistreating your body, mistreating others, are some examples of patterns we may target, depending on the needs of the group. 

We will be utilizing The Connection Method™, a multimodal psychotherapy method whereby you consciously access your breath, your body, nature, your Full Potential Self, your Inner Being, your Inner Child to restore your wholeness. You will be guided to easily breathe, move, feel, draw, meditate, love, take a new action and transmute!

What is The Connection Method™?

Imagine you inherited a spectacular mansion, but you don’t have the keys to get in. 

Your brain is that mansion. By brain I mean all your perceptual faculties— sensory, intellectual and intuitive. There are a handful of keys that unlock your wellbeing. These fundamental energies are already yours, but they need to be awakened. They are your body, your breath, your heart, your inner being, your inner child, your future self, your adult self, and nature. When you consciously connect to each of these central organizing archetypes, and connect them to each other in a unique sequence so they work synergistically, you quickly transition from emotional discomfort to a state wholeness. This is your natural state. This method of psychotherapy is highly experiential, interactive and integrative. I developed it in 2008 after 20 years of clinical practice.


What is EMDR?

Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing is a unique, highly effective tool of psychotherapy that neutralizes negative feelings associated with memories of traumatic events. It utilizes eye movements and therapeutic prompts to access specific neuronetworks where both positive resource states and emotional upsets are stored. The client’s brain spontaneously starts to make sense of previously wounding experiences to the point that they are no longer disturbing. Research demonstrates 85% success rate for even the most complex PTSD and related issues, within 4 to 11 sessions.
