If the ‘cookie jar’ is your BFF when you’re stressed, sad or angry, you probably know that channeling your feelings into a bag of cookies, popcorn or chips provides a momentary sense of relief. You know that it’s a short-term fix – one that only adds an extra helping of guilt.

But what if you could have more than a moment of relief? What if permanent freedom from your pain is possible? Would you go for it?

EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), aka Tapping, is a powerful self-soothing modality that has helped millions of people around the world deal with in-the-moment fears and stress . . . as well as feelings of low self-esteem, betrayal and other traumatic experiences that have plagued them their entire lives.

Why is Tapping so effective? Based on the same principles as acupuncture, EFT/Tapping acknowledges the relationship between our minds, our emotions and our bodies. When we experience anything – whether it’s a joyful thought or a traumatic experience, the body records and remembers it. When we feel good, we feel good all over, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We feel a rush of positive energy. The same holds true when we feel pain, anger, hurt or sadness. We feel a rush of negative energy.

Our body tells us when we’re stressed, even though the mind may not register or identify it. That messaging system in our body is energetic. The traumas and upset we experience are recorded there – in the energy system that runs through our bodies. The ancient Chinese developed acupuncture based on that energy system and that’s what we literally tap into with Tapping.

Tapping allow us to access the emotion that was recorded in the body during a traumatic or painful event and eliminate or neutralize its negative effects. Once that has happened, our energy system permanently releases that memory and we feel lighter, freer.

As a heart-based EFT (Tapping) practitioner, Mindfulness Meditation Facilitator and Wellness Coach, I am here to help you rediscover that freedom; to reconnect you with the peaceful and abiding you; the YOU you know you are, the one who sees the struggle and is present – aware – of the pain. In spite of your pain, your feelings of helplessness, there is a Spirit inside you that knows there’s more to life than the pain and anxiety you are feeling today. That same spirit brought you here and is inviting you to take a step toward freedom. It’s your choice now.

So, let’s talk! Sign up for a free 20-minute consult and let’s see how EFT/Tapping can help. Relief Guaranteed!

How Childhood Trauma Affects Health Across a Lifetime

We are born innocent and vulnerable, trusting and totally dependent on those into whose life we have entered. As infants and toddlers, we enjoy an unshakeable belief that the world revolves around us. The slightest slight, the smallest reprimand, or even a momentary feeling of being abandoned can have a long-term, negative impact. A child might assume that when their beloved parent ignores them it’s because they aren’t worthy of attention; that there must be something wrong with them. If they were different, or somehow better, their caregiver/parent would always be loving and caring, happy and available, 24/7.

There are other experiences, too; life-threatening, violent, or frightening ones; events that happen to us or those we love. Witnessing your father hit your mother or brother; hearing your parents’ violent arguments; losing your family through divorce. Children often blame themselves; if you had behaved better, would your parents have stayed together? Children all too often feel responsible for the pain in their family.  (Scroll down for more information about EFT & how it can heal a multitude of issues, including traumatic experiences.)

The thoughts and beliefs that we carry can scar us and influence the adults we become. From them we either trust or distrust others; we see the world as a welcoming or dangerous place.

Traumatic experiences and the beliefs that grow from them can affect our physical health, too. Drs. Gabor Mate (physician, speaker and author of When The Body Says No!) and Bruce Lipton (developmental biologist, speaker and author of The Biology of Belief) speak extensively about the impact of traumatic events on the health of our bodies.

And then, there is stress; the kind of everyday stress that unless we have an outlet for its release, can build and build until we find ourselves experiencing serious health issues such as cancer, heart disease, MS, digestive problems and a whole host of other illnesses. See Dr. Nadine Burke Harris’ TED talk about this.

Like acupuncture, EFT is based on the discovery in ancient China of a complex system of energy circuits that run throughout the body. These energy circuits, or meridians, are at the heart of Eastern health practices and form the basis for modern day acupuncture, acupressure and a wide variety of other healing techniques.

We are able to access this energy system by literally tapping with our fingers on some of the same meridians or energy gateways acupuncturists access with needles.

EFT/Tapping. What is it & how can it help you?

EFT or Emotional Freedom Techniques (aka Tapping) is an energy-based healing modality that often works where nothing else will. The under-lying premise of EFT or what we call The Discovery Statement is that          ” the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system”. 

What can EFT help and how?

Negative emotions, whether experienced as anxiety, fear, guilt, sadness, depression, worry, traumatic memories, PTSD, or limiting beliefs, create a disruption in the body’s energy system, much like a short in your home’s electrical wiring. Whether one is suffering from anxiety, depression, traumatic memories, or fear, the issue is ‘neutralized’ when we ‘repair the wiring’, i.e., heal the body’s energy system via Tapping.

Consider EFT/Tapping (Emotional Freedom Techniques)

If daily life is stressful and you haven’t found a solution that doesn’t revolve around drugs, I invite you to experience EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), now known as  Tapping (because we literally tap on certain energy gateways or meridians). It’s easy to learn and easy to do, even on yourself. Once we’ve cleared the BIG issues that have been affecting your life, you can use EFT to tap away momentary anxiety, fears, and day-to-day stressors. Teaching you how to use EFT effectively is a large part of my service!

The underlying premise of EFT is that “the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system.”

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)

When we experience uncomfortable thoughts or memories, most of us will do anything we can to avoid them. Unfortunately, using anything—be it food, sex, drugs, shopping therapy or bingeing on Netflix—to avoid discomfort ultimately results in frustration and the addition of guilt!

Whether the discomfort we feel has to do with the painful effects of a traumatic event, hurtful experiences, or negative self-talk, the healthiest and most effective way to address it is to lovingly acknowledge it and neutralize its impact with EFT (Tapping).

Since EFT Tapping is accessing the same energy system that Acupuncturists use to heal physical ailments, it is often called Emotional Acupuncture. When we experience a traumatic event (from abuse, betrayal, or bullying to a life-threatening accident or wartime trauma like PTSD) the energy system that flows through the body is impacted by that experience. In much the same way that a short in an electrical system affects the flow of electricity, the flow of our body’s energy is disrupted. When the disruption in the energy system is healed, the limitation(s) or related negative emotions are eliminated.

Quickly and effectively eliminating fears (including public speaking), issues of poor self-esteem, negative self-talk, and emotional eating issues are just some of the gifts of EFT.

Imagine… You Feel Incredible… You Look Great… Your Skin is Aglow!

You have finally, finally, finally lost all the extra pounds you have been carrying for years!

You can look in the mirror now and truly smile at the image looking back at you!

Are you ready to see a new you? The ‘you’ that patiently waits in your imagination? The you that has watched you eat ‘only the broken cookies’ . . . that has watched as you said, one more time,‘I’ll start my diet tomorrow . . .’

How Can a Health Coach Help You Reach Your Goals?

A coach is a qualified professional who helps their clients—whether they are star athletes, sales teams or individuals—define and achieve their goals. As every successful person knows, there are times on the road to success, be it in life, sports, or business, when we notice a thought or belief that stands between us and our goal.

Take the star golfer who clutches just before striking the ball, the presenter who panics at the thought of giving her next workshop, the woman who has lost the weight . . . only to gain it all back.
