Some clues that you may be living life under a trauma spell…

 

Feeling disconnected from your body, sensuality and self-expression

Guilt, weirdness or confusion show up around the topics of sex and self-pleasure

A sense of tiredness, dullness or heaviness that impedes arousal

Finding boundaries to be a struggle

Lacking clarity around your desires in the bedroom and beyond

Feeling like there has to be something more

Living under capitalism, patriarchy and white supremacy

Residue from things that happened to your parents and ancestors

Words from clients

I feel extremely lucky to have found Sarah. She is patient and understanding, wise and kind. She unflinchingly tackles whatever I throw at her, and even though some of my experiences must be somewhat unique, she has never seemed the least bit surprised or at a loss for where to go next. Sarah has given me an outlet to express my fears and share my experiences, and she is helping me discover my true value and connect with my deepest self.

 

Sarah makes me feel comfortable whether I am crying, laughing, quiet, or angry. She lets me be completely myself, and I trust her wholeheartedly. I am much more in tune with how my emotions and thoughts affect me physically. Best of all, we go at my pace. I don't have to pretend to be capable of something I'm not ready for. She constantly adapts to meet me where I am yet has faith that I will soon be ready for the next step, which is encouraging. Every session has been enlightening. I cannot recommend Sarah enough.

 

It has been an amazing experience working with Sarah for over a year. Before the work even begins, just being in Sarah's presence feels deeply grounding and centering. Sarah has been witness, guide and collaborator in my journey of healing and recovery, helping me uncover the deeply hidden patterns that have limited me and entrapped my pain for most of my life. Although I wasn't specifically addressing my eating disorder with Sarah, I am certain that my work with her gave me the foundation of healing and self-love that I needed to recover from the disorder. Sarah has been pivotal in returning me to myself. My work with her is invaluable. I tried many other forms of therapy before hearing about Sarah's work, and no other techniques came close to giving me the results that I experienced with Sarah. I am now able to show up in my life empowered and authentic. I would highly recommend Sarah both for her professionalism and for her mastery as a counsellor.
