Karen Mills Bevers Holistic Mind Body Trauma Healing Using EMDR and EFT
As we learn that we are mind, body, emotions, heart, and Spirit, we begin to search intuitively. Hope and inspiration are vital components of the healing journey and we ask," What inspires me? "What gives me hope?"
Creativity is a tool that helps us transform and move our development to the next level. Do we realize that a "seeming" wall is an opportunity to discover more of who we are and what we want? How do we find these answers?
Like many people in the healing profession, I became interested in psychotherapy as a way to heal myself. Having survived an accident as a teenager taught me about physical healing and served as an initiation into a further awakening.
In college I became intrigued by psychology and the idea of becoming a psychotherapist. Little did I know that it would be the journey of a lifetime.
Self-creation is an art of fire.
All Higher Self communication begins in the heart.
About my approach to mind body psychotherapy
Mind body psychotherapy helps us connect with our aliveness, creativity, and heal blocks. Over the years I have developed a highly intuitive approach to working with the nervous system, the personality and day to day practical issues that affect people. I deeply respect the unique relationship each person has to their pain and to their healing. This means that I pay close attention to you and the pace of each session.
Fees for my services are $115.00 an hour for using EMDR and Trauma Resolution therapy.
