Somatic Trauma Healing
“Transforming trauma is a movement away from the vengeful desire to inflict harm on others, or ourselves, to a new place of renewal, hope and compassion.”
Trauma is healed through the process of discharging excess survival energy. We do this by uncoupling fear and moving out of immobility. Somatic Trauma Healing, as developed by Dr. Peter Levine, activates your innate mammalian ability to regulate and discharge the high levels of energy arousal associated with trauma. Just as wild animals are not traumatized by naturally occurring events in the wild, so we too can learn to track and release our autonomic nervous system.
Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy
“Everything you need to know is inside of you”
- yogic scripture
The work, based on the client-centered approach of Carl Rogers, is oriented toward trusting the innate capacities and motivations for healing and transformation that exist within all of us; it is the role of the practitioner to support that process rather than to diagnose or fix people. Phoenix Rising Therapy combines the ancient science of Hatha yoga with modern day mind/body psychology to invite presence and awareness rather than prescribing treatments. Supported yoga postures, energy balancing, chakra balancing, breath work, guided imagery and reflective dialogue are all used concurrently in this process. Clients are guided in the interpretation of their own insights in order to make life choices based upon their new awareness.
Hypnotherapy/ Past Life Regression
When we open the doorway of the mind we may discover that we are able to transmute old behaviors and mindsets that no longer serve us. In their place we’ll substitute positive suggestions that will gradually become the automatic thoughts that lead to life affirming behaviors and habits.
Whether past lives represent metaphors, myths, or a reality; exploring their existence may open access to our souls and enliven our present existence.
This Healing Journey accesses altered states of consciousness, where we may expand to the realm of soul awareness, where we are whole and unlimited potential. As a result, during the session, our physical body resonates to create greater balance with Spirit, while the ego is able to move into an adjusted form, allowing a rekindling of energy that results in more vibrant health and rejuvenation.

“The real voyage of discovery lies not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”
- Marcel Proust
A holistic approach to recovery from alcohol, drugs and other addictive behaviors. Holistic means relating to or concerned with wholes or with complete systems rather than the treatment of parts. Your body, mind, emotions, and spirit will be treated so as to stimulate your self-healing potential.
This process will assist in discovering and healing the underlying causes of these behaviors that run your life and achieve recovery. The problems underlying dependency have both physical and psychological components-anemia, hypoglycemia, ADD, brain-wave pattern imbalances, or deep emotional pain. The “why” may not always be apparent because it is hidden by the addictive behavior or substance and other symptoms that mask your pain. It takes a personalized approach to uncover and treat the specific reasons for dependency.
Family Constellation Therapy
“Without freedom from the past, there is no freedom at all.”
- J. Krishnamurti
Growth takes root in a past laid to rest.
Family Constellations, as developed by Bert Hellinger, is a highly effective way of healing on a deeply felt energetic level, with long-term and often life changing results. It has been observed that often we unconsciously “take on” destructive familial patterns of guilt, pain, anxiety, depression, alcoholism and other forms of illness as a way of belonging to our families. We sense the issues are bigger than the circumstances but find ourselves powerless to resolve them as they occur over and over, even through the generations. Constellation Work brings to light the hidden forces behind being stuck. Hidden entanglements re-brought to light and barriers to LOVE,HEALTH,PROSPERITY, and WELLBEING may be removed. Whether in an individual or group setting a “constellation” has been described as having the effect of “several years of therapy condensed into a single hour.” It reaches beyond the mind, transforming real images into powerful forces for healing that can impact the entire family- past, present, and future
Family Constellations can enable participants to:
- Resolve misunderstandings, entanglements and blocks in family-, partner- and other relationships
- Break cycles of disconnection, alienation, abuse and dysfunction in the family
- Address parenting problems and painful family situations
- Deal positively with severe illness and death
- Uncover reasons for physical and emotional suffering and take steps towards healing (i.e. migraine, asthma, eating disorders, chronic backache, depression, anxieties and phobias, suicidal tendencies, drug and alcohol abuse)
- Understand the “bigger picture” of any life situation
- Gain insight into professional conflicts
Conscious Relationship Counseling
“Everything can be taken from a man or woman but one thing: the last of human freedoms, to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”
- Victor Frankle
An experiential approach to reconcile conflict and create connection and intimacy in important relationships. By learning and practicing expression of desires, needs and yearnings and listening skills, we may increase our ability to tolerate and be present to difficult emotions. We are better able to bring forth our best self so as to participate in the creation of a more intimate loving authentic partnership.
The Violet Flame
The violet flame is a unique spiritual energy that can help you in all areas of your life. It can heal emotional and physical problems, improve your relationships, help you to grow spiritually, or just make life easier.
The flame is the essence of a unique spiritual light. Mystics of all ages have glimpsed a “spiritual spectrum” behind the physical spectrum. Radiant colors, more pure and rare than those found on earth, emanate from a brilliant, “inner” divine light. Just as a ray of sunlight passing through a prism refracts into seven colors, spiritual light splits into seven colors, or “rays” – each of which has specific divine qualities. The violet flame comes forth from the violet ray, which has the qualities of mercy, forgiveness, freedom and transmutation.
The color violet has long been associated with spirituality. Having the highest frequency in the visible spectrum, violet is at the point of transition to the next octave of light. To the ancients, this transcendental color was a spiritual rather than a physical phenomenon.
“Of all knowledge; the wise and the good seek most to know themselves.”
- William Shakespeare
This process of art therapy, which is not about making art, can alleviate emotional stress and anxiety by creating physiological response of relaxation or by altering mood, and increase serotonin in the brain.
Because art expression is not a linear process and need not obey the rules of language, it can express many complexities simultaneously. This process can help people explore and express themselves authentically and find relief from overwhelming emotions, crises, or trauma. Insights and a sense of well-being may be some of the outcomes.
A special kind of healing energy that can only be channeled by those who have been attuned to it.
It is interpreted to mean higher knowledge or spiritual consciousness. This is the wisdom that comes from the Higher Self and is all – knowing. Reiki can be defined as spiritually guided life energy and guides itself with its own wisdom..
Reiki works on “cause” rather than effects” of Dis-Ease..Reiki energy has several basic effects: it brigs about deep relaxation, destroys energy blockages, detoxifies the system , provides new vitality in the form of healing universal life energy, and increases the vibrational frequency of the body. In Reiki the hands are placed above the recipient, and it is the recipient that draws the energy as needed.
