HI, I'M PHOENIX.
Founder of The Art of Self-Healing Center & Therapy for Rebels

Welcome. I'm glad you're here.

My work is really personal to me. I've struggled with complex trauma as a neurodivergent (ND) person with autistic and ADHD traits, and have found traditional talk therapy methods largely unhelpful. These traditional methods are rooted in a patriarchal, colonialist approach that often disregards our evolved human needs, especially for NDs. There's also significant differences in communication style between NDs and NTs, which greatly impacts the effectiveness of talk therapy. In my work, I aim to fill in the gaps that traditional methods miss and create an effective healing model designed specifically for neurodivergent youth.

I offer a high quality, high impact approach that teaches effective strategies to improve your mental health, relationships, and life. It's holistic, somatic (body-based), and spiritual.

What is Self-Healing?

2023 The Art of Self-Healing Model.png

Our universe is naturally self-healing and so is our physical body. When we get a cut or catch a cold, our body's immune response system helps us to heal. Since unresolved trauma is stored in the body, it can also heal naturally when the right kind of environment is created.

 

Through my personal and professional experiences, I've learned how to create the ideal self-healing container for our post-traumatic growth and potential to unfold naturally without overwhelming the traumatized nervous system. I call it "The Art of Self-Healing Model." It's a self-directed therapy model that empowers you to be the guide in your own recovery.

 

My approach combines attachment theory, polyvagal theory, the latest neuroscience research, human development theories, western and eastern philosophies, Jungian orientation, shamanism, evolutionary theories, and even functional and alternative medicines. These somewhat seemingly separate topics have a common foundation that's allowed me to heal myself and others in ways I never thought possible.
