Are You Ready to Live Better?

Do you feel disconnected from yourself or others? Are you tired of not feeling safe, welcome, and as you belong? Are you frustrated by trying to meet your needs but feel unsuccessful?

Here is the good news, healing is possible. If you’ve experienced trauma, your body is doing exactly what it is designed to do – keep you safe through disconnection. This often looks like chronic anxiety, feeling spaced out, feeling unlovable, procrastinating, people-pleasing, feeling pressure from the world, and having a hard time setting boundaries. It can also look like overeating, overspending, and overdrinking.

Disconnection can impact your emotions, your brain and physiology, your choices in life, and your relationships.
You deserve more than that. You deserve the security to explore your world, be the real you, and enjoy safe, connected relationships. You deserve more aliveness.

Sometimes we don't even realize it's trauma holding us back...​

Issues can show up in sleep, self-care, feeling shame, and blaming yourself.

Physiologically, disconnection is experienced through mood issues, cognition, focus, and performance in life. Physically, health issues can arise, including GI problems, from allostatic load resulting from continual stress.

As a trauma and relationship therapist accomplished in neurofeedback and counseling, I can address the underlying physiology that creates dysregulation. We can  explore what is getting in the way of your capacity for connection, health, and aliveness. And, I can help you create more secure functioning in your relationship to feel more safety, security, mutuality, and connection.

“Connection – our greatest longing and our greatest fear.” – Laurence Heller

You deserve to be authentically you, be connected, and have healing and health. I can’t wait to help you get there.

When we don't heal our trauma, we hurt our families' emotional health, and by extension, our communities and world. When we heal ourselves, we change our lives and legacy.

This Isn't Just Another Couch Session

I didn’t know what was wrong with me. I thought I was stupid, lazy, maybe just unlucky, or crazy. Nicole helped identify the problem. There is a good chance I would not be alive today if not for Nicole. I definitely wouldn’t have the quality of life I have today without her.

What is Unresolved Trauma Costing You?

“People have two needs.  Attachment and authenticity. When authenticity threatens attachment, attachment trumps authenticity.” -Gabor Mate

Patterns learned early on as survival strategies later create disconnection. It may be hard to focus, think, feel good, and perform in life. You may find it hard to be authentic in relationships. You may feel guilt, pressure, self-blame, and shame. You may feel like you need to perfect your body to feel loved. You may sacrifice your authenticity with people-pleasing behaviors and thin boundaries. You may procrastinate, avoid conflict, or experience health issues. You may believe something is fundamentally flawed with you.

But what if you felt welcomed in the world, belonging, connection, joy, confidence, and love?

You deserve freedom, peace, connection, and the life you really desire. It’s waiting for you.

Don’t miss out.

Talking will not trick your body into safety, but you can learn to heal your nervous system and start living the life you deserve.
