About Me

About Me

Dee has spent 30 years integrating body/mind/holistic healing into her massage therapy practice. Early in her career she realized what she was seeing in the tissue of the body was a map of lived experiences. Her passion for and understanding of the Body/Mind connection led to her becoming a massage instructor of Psycho-Structural Balancing at Life Energy Institute where she also received her training. She enjoyed helping people connect to their bodies through Tai Chi Chuan, breath work, boundary-setting and communication. These experiences led Dee to pursue advanced training in Trauma Recovery.

Adoption Trauma

Society’s view of adoption and permanency is that it is a single, simple, problem solving event where everyone involved benefits. This narrative puts an exclusively positive spin on adoption and permanency.

NPE Trauma

Moral Injury was originally defined by Dr. Jonathan Shay as “...a betrayal of what is right by someone who holds legitimate authority in a high stakes situation, perpetrating, failing to prevent, bearing witness to acts that ultimately transgress one’s deeply held moral beliefs”.
