You're learning new skills and developing new strengths every day. But you don't have to do it alone. Sometimes, to be the best man you can be, it helps to have somebody to talk to.
Strong men need help too.
Men are raised to be the strong ones, the independent ones, the ones everybody can count on when they need help. Even for the most successful men it can be hard even to recognize when they could use some help themselves -- let alone to find the courage to reach out and ask for it.
While much of my work has focused on women, I have a growing client base of men who have found the tools and modalities I work with helpful in their journey through life.
Getting help doesn't mean you've failed. It doesn't mean you can't handle your problems by yourself. It means you care enough about the people in your life that you want to learn new skills, new ways of responding to your emotions.
Your healing and growth will have a direct impact on every relationship in your life.
Who should reach out?
You're confronting new emotions.
You thought you'd learned to manage to your emotions, but this time
life has thrown you a curveball. Now you're in a part of your journey that you don't have a map for. This is a time for a new kind of awareness and a new set of skills.
You're experiencing grief.
You're a problem solver, but grief, whether from a death, a separation,
or an unmet expectation, isn't always a problem you can solve. The good
news is that it does get better -- and as you process this new
challenge, you will also develop emotional resilience you didn't know
you had in you.
You're experiencing chronic pain.
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 and it is important to note that Breathwork has been deemed safe by the scientific and medical community as long as you are fit to practice. Below are the primary contraindications that let us know we need to make some adjustments in order for you to do this work safely: Cardiovascular related health issues Low or high blood pressure Hypertension If anyone is pregnant If you have asthma History of epilepsy or seizures If you just got out of a recent surgery On any heavy duty medications Or have any diagnosed mental health issues? (i.e. schizophrenia, bi polar, etc.) Having a contraindication doesn't mean you can't do breathwork! In fact, I have low blood pressure so I'm on that list! What it means is that when I do breathwork, I have to do it differently. I don't breathe through my mouth. I breathe through my nose to lower the intensity. And it still works, I still get the benefit. 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.
