About Embodied Healing

From the outside you appear to have everything put together. You are a high achiever and most of your day is spent working hard and being productive. However, when you come home at night and finally slow down you are consumed with loneliness, self-hate, and a desire to have connected relationships.  In order to avoid connecting to these uncomfortable emotions you might eat, exercise, or just feel stuck. 

You need someone who can offer other ways of solving your concerns, validation, and lead you to more connected relationships.  You need someone who his highly trained to work with over performers and disordered eating.  You can learn more About Melissa here.

Through this work you will progress through 3 steps:

  1. Disconnected to mindful

  2. Avoidance to awareness

  3. Internal chaos to internal balance


These 3 steps all can lead to connection to yourself, others, your values, and your goals. 


This process isn’t easy and without support you’ll remain in your internal chaos.
