Our belief is that if you treat the traumas you have experienced,  their after effects will cease to have power over you. We all have a part of us that is not traumatized. 

Our office’s hope is you will experience genuine love, and an approach that feels right for you. We strive to come together as a team, to find the best approaches, and to continue to learn and grow so we can meet the needs of our clients. 

In this office we will laugh, play, hold space, love, offer presence, embrace differences, be intuitive, curious, and whatever else is in your highest good. We will assist you in creating awareness, mindfulness, self compassion, and shift belief systems no longer serving you. We will celebrate you, and honor being a part of your journey. The journey can feel scary, but we got you!

EMDR

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing. EMDR therapy focuses directly on the memory by changing where the memory is stored in the brain so that the symptoms from the memory are reduced.

ACCELERATED RESOLUTION THERAPY

Accelerated Resolution Therapy, often referred to as ART, is a form of psychotherapy with roots in existing evidence-based therapies, but shown to achieve benefits much more rapidly. It helps clients suffering from trauma and other ailments.

ADVANCED INTEGRATIVE THERAPY

This is a trauma technique, It utilizes somatic work, mindfulness, trauma processing, and many other techniques, to produce in depth healing. It works on the core belief systems that are holding us back. It processes trauma and helps us connect to our center and start living a more authentic life.

SOMATIC RESOURCING & MINDFULNESS

Somatic Resourcing is a body-based therapy. Trauma is not about the event, it’s about what happens to the body. I cannot say enough about how learning to be mindful, to be in our bodies, to trust our bodies, is the first step in healing.

Having a person I trust, for a regular therapy appointment each week for the past two years to help process and digest the wealth of experiences that my physical body/energy body/emotional body/thought body & bliss body have been exposed to in my lifetime (not to mention the epigenetic/generational trauma of my ancestors) has greatly helped me and improved my quality of life. I explored with numerous therapists in my 20’s and for most of my life I had given up on the idea that therapy could ever be useful - before finding a therapist and modality that deeply resonated for me. There are as many different therapists and modalities as there are constitutions - if you are suffering, I hope to help de-stigmatize this very useful tool. Through Saskia’s use of the Advanced Integrative Therapy modality, I have been able to retrieve and integrate traumatic imprints and patterns that were affecting my life in ways I was unaware. I'm a completely different person and my self-confidence and capacity to engage with life has been astounding. -Eva Ambika

Saskia is the absolute best! I adore her in every way and I’ve only been going to her, recently, for about a month and have already noticed and felt a difference within myself. I’m truly grateful for her and the methods she uses 💗 I’m excited to continue on my healing journey through the traumas I’ve faced in my life with Saskia by my side!

Saskia has changed my life. Because of her I have a great relationship with my self, husband, and family. It got me to a place where I could get rid of weight because I didn't need it for protection anymore. We have cleared so much childhood trauma. If you are stuck please reach out to her. She truly is a miracle in my life.
