Hi, I’m Ramona. Empath, highly sensitive person, nerd, gamer, dancer, Rush fan, she who loves Halloween. Oh, yeah, and a trauma therapist turned coach, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, and Registered Expressive Arts Therapist.
How did I get here? First, I’ve spent most of this lifetime on my own journey of healing from early childhood trauma and complex posttraumatic stress disorder. I know this work from the inside out. Then I got my masters in counseling so I could help other people heal their trauma. For the past 8+ years, I’ve specialized in the treatment of developmental trauma and complex posttraumatic stress disorder in my therapy practice. Through my personal work, my professional training, and my work with clients, I’ve learned a lot about how past trauma keeps us stuck, frozen in self-protective modes, and I’ve also learned how to help clients shift those frozen states so they can reclaim their lives. I’ve gained a lot of useful tools along the way. I’ve discovered my own intuitive ability to go deeper, to shine light on the darkest places, and to hold space for all the feelings and sensations that arise.
