A few years ago I experienced a very traumatic event. This car accident and the outcome was the one thing that I thought would never happen to me. But it did. The events and results were extremely traumatic. I thought I was not going to make it through.
My life’s work is as a recovery coach and addiction professional. So I knew what to do - Right?!?
Immediately after the accident, I took all the necessary steps – I went to counseling, saw a psychiatrist, got on medications. And after a year, it seemed like things were finally getting back to normal.
Then one day, a year later, I went to lunch with a colleague – an EFT Master practitioner. In the middle of lunch, she asked me how I was doing since the accident. And I broke down in tears right in the middle of the restaurant. People were staring at me; the servers were avoiding our table. I was ashamed that even after all the work I had done, here I was again after one year, breaking down. The accident had come rushing right back into my memory and right into the middle of lunch I was back at the scene.
When you change your perspective you change your outcome.
It was time to do some more work. Instead of going back to traditional therapy, I worked with her using EFT. If it were not for her, I would not have gotten through the deeper layers that kept me stuck; that I kept shut off in a place that I did not want to acknowledge or talk about. Eventually the sting and the memories cleared out.
I was finally released from the guilt about the accident. I was finally released from the emotional reaction that came even just thinking about the accident. I was finally free to talk about it without guilt, shame or self-blame.
Since then I have studied to get my credential.
I earned my Master EFT Practitioner credential at
Many clients have invited me to support and strengthen their recovery and wellness.
