The power of now!
Welcome to Integrated Presence, LLC!
If you are on this website, you are one of the many who has found the path to alternative wellness. Maybe allopathic medicine could not help you. Or maybe your values demand that you to find healthy, holistic ways to care for yourself and loved ones. Or maybe your higher self has guided you to the right place at the right time.
INTEGRATED PRESENCE is the process of making the self whole, renewing and restoring the person to authenticity, to the before, before injury, before pain, before trauma.
Living through abuse, addiction, or other trauma, we fracture, segregating and sequestering experiences, memories, and even parts of ourselves away. Soon, our wounding defines who we are and sometimes becomes our full identity. The voice we hear inside our head is the voice of the 'itty, bitty, shitty committee' who talks down to us. You know the voice... 'I am not (pretty, strong, smart, athletic, lovable, ...) enough.' or 'I am a victim, an addict, fat, an alcoholic, stupid, a klutz, afraid...' or 'What about me?' 'Nothing will ever change.' ‘I’ll never feel better or be healed.’ 'Why bother?'
The beauty is that our sub-conscious mind pays attention to what we tell ourselves, both out loud and silently. The thoughts, beliefs, emotions, events, and self-concepts we give our attention to, and therefore, our power to, create our reality. Choosing to heal and integrate the old traumas and create a different reality is the act of a spiritual warrior who only lives and acts within the present moment. Integrated Presence…
We each have a warrior within, who is part of our authentic self. Turning our attention to the values, thoughts and beliefs that support us, while taking responsibility for our choices, creates deep, powerful transformation. The inner journey to find this warrior within and heal oneself is the “Great Work”!
HYPNOSIS CAN HELP!
Have you ever zoned out while watching TV? Or not remembered parts of the road as you drove from one place to another? Or fallen in love? These are all states where you drop out of your conscious mind into the subconscious, entering a certain level of hypnosis.
Hypnosis is a natural state of mind that can produce extraordinary levels of relaxation of mind, body and emotion. Hypnosis can transcend the critical, analytical level of mind, and facilitate the acceptance of desired suggestions, directions, and instructions. The therapeutic use of hypnosis can also elicit information and insight from the inner mind. Alchemical hypnotherapy focuses on building inner resources such as guides, angels, higher self, archetypal energies, sub-personalities, and even past lives to clear beliefs that no longer work and to discover and nurture your true nature.
Accessing the subconscious mind can be as easy as tasting an imaginary lemon!
My work focuses on Trauma Recovery, Self-esteem Issues, Creative Blocks, Habits and Behaviors, Goal Achievement, positive Motivation, Pain Relief through Hypnotherapy, and much more. I also incorporate Essential Oils and Reiki to reach both the physical and energetic bodies.
I grew up in Salida, Colorado, spending most of my time outdoors, either on mountains of the ski area we owned, in the fields and creeks around our house, or out in the woods picking wild blackberries and catching red racer snakes. Most of my indoor time was spent sewing, quilting, and crocheting. These loves led me to choose architecture as my career path. I earned my Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Oregon, and my Masters and PhD degrees from Arizona State University.
My journey to holistic wellness began when my 2-year old daughter kept having recurrent ear infections. Her doctor at the time would prescribe a 10-day round of antibiotics and within a couple of days of being off them, the ear infection would return. Each time we returned to his office, a stronger round of antibiotics was prescribed, until there was nothing stronger. Fed up, I took her to a homeopathic doctor who gave her a remedy and within 2 days, the ear infection was completely eradicated. This experience transformed my concepts of what healing and medicine were.
About a year later, I became a single mother and left my career as an architect and moved cross country to study at the Dovestar Alchemian Institute so I could spend more time home with my daughter. At Dovestar, I earned certificates in kriya massage, acupressure, reflexology, Alchemical Hypnotherapy, as well as becoming a Reiki Master Teacher and Instructor at the school. My interest and curiosity in alternative and holistic ways of healing the mind, body and spirit led me to study on a shamanic path for the last twenty years. I also became enthralled with the simplicity and power of essential oils and flower essences to impact the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of the body for profound healing. And, more recently, my studies in neurolinguistics programming (NLP) has demonstrated immense potential to transform how we use language and speak to our ourselves.
I am so excited and honored to be able to share what I have learned, to be a guide for your own journey, to be a “midwife” to the birthing of your authentic self.
Amazing, out of this world, life-changing
