You are not alone in your experience of pain.
So many people in the world are living with chronic pain right now – and they’re desperate to find answers.
Answers from doctors. Medications or treatments to cure them. Anything that could possibly bring a solution to the painful sensations their body has felt or carried for so long.
My work with pain is based on the premise that most forms of chronic pain are not caused by physical problems in the body, but rather learned neural pathways in the brain that have developed over time.
This doesn’t mean your pain isn’t real! What this means is that your brain’s perception and interpretation of the pain can be shifted or rewired.
Our work together involves teaching your brain to identify and reassess the signals it is receiving from the body. We begin by exploring your pain story with curiosity. We develop and deepen your ability to notice and look for places of ease within your body. And we work to replace a sense of fear around the pain with a sense of safety in the body.
Who is Chronic Pain Support for?
You suffer from chronic pain that impacts your day-to-day life.
You want to be able to live without pain. You want to be able to exercise, work, walk – and even just be – without being impacted by pain.
You’ve tried medications and other interventions without success.
You’ve invested time, energy, and finances into solutions that haven’t worked. You’re worn down. You’re hopeful that a solution exists, but discouraged.
You’re ready to try an alternative, evidence-based treatment.
Rooted in neuroscience, Pain Reprocessing Therapy helps you train your brain to unlearn “false alarm” signals that your brain has developed over time.
How We’ll Work Together
Healing and growth is a journey, not a destination.
And I’m here to help you on that journey.
You’ll have the opportunity to share your story with me and tell me about your goals and desired outcome.
We’ll clearly identify the areas of your life where things feel challenging, the history behind it, and why it’s coming up for you in this moment.
Using modalities that resonate best with you, we’ll begin the work of going deeper to process the things that need attention.
You’ll walk away with a greater sense of self-awareness so that you can continue to process and grow in your journey toward wholeness.
Are there contraindications for breathwork?There are many different breathwork approaches that can help you achieve the goals you’re working toward. If you experience cardiovascular-related health issues, low or high blood pressure, pregnancy, asthma, a mental health diagnosis, and/or a history of epilepsy, some more intense forms of breathwork may not be the right fit for you. However, if you have any of these contraindications, it doesn’t mean you should completely rule out breathwork! I strongly advise you to consult with your healthcare providers and inform me of any health concerns before participating in a breathwork session. In all cases, we will collaborate to find the breathwork style that is both beneficial and healing for you.
How do I prepare for a breathwork session?For an effective breathwork session, whether in person with us in Tucson, AZ or virtually, create a quiet and comfortable environment in a room away from distractions, wear loose and warm clothing, and keep a blanket handy. Prioritize an empty stomach or light meal to avoid discomfort, and ensure you're well-hydrated. Approach the session with an open mind, knowing that practice will enhance your technique, and remember, I'm here to guide and support you throughout the experience.
How do I know if we’re a good fit?I offer a 15 minute complimentary introductory call over Zoom or phone. This helps us get to know each other to make sure you feel comfortable with me and the processes that I use in my practice. You can email, call or text me if you'd like to set this up.
