It is helpful if are ready, willing, and able and feel secure enough to look at dark and embarrassing places with compassion. At the start of each session, you will be asked to bring up an experience, thought or feeling you’d like to “look at”. You will discuss a couple of topics with candor and observation during each session.
Further, it is advantageous if you then, put into practice what you and Shadow discuss.
With these steps, you will experience meaningful results in the areas of healing, focus and personal development.

Groups sessions are usually 60 minutes. The groups may have yoga/movement incorporated and will depend upon your sharing when Shadow asks the group questions related to surviving, thriving and taking on what’s next in your life.
Group interactions are important for communication practice, intimacy and support. It’s often therapeutic to be in connection with others in the honest struggle, difficult thoughts and range of emotions as we navigate the complexities of life and relationships.
Shadow leads with compassion and directness while being grounded, open, experienced and always encourages choice.
Group therapy and Psycho-education topics include: Mindfulness, Communication and Social Skills in Difficult Conversations, Navigating Triggers, Personality Disorders of Borderline, Narcissism and their relationships with Empaths, Spiritual Growth and Leadership, Mind-Body Eating/Self-Image, Grief and Loss, Healing from Gas-lighting and Abusive or Manipulative Relationships.
Sorting Consultation phone calls are intuitive sessions where Shadow delivers what she is guided to share. There is some mediumship and psychic awareness Shadow may point to as it is helpful for the individual but Shadow doesn’t call herself a Medium or a Psychic. Shadow also works hard to not receive information as an Empath or a Sensitive though she is attuned to these modalities of information gathering and sharing. Shadow will not invasively probe, insert, protect, or see what you energetically do not what her to see. Her sessions are backed by her licensures, experiences, education, 24 years worth of trainings in energy work/tracking and intuitive coaching, however, this is not psychotherapy. Anyone can book these sessions and they do not necessarily build upon each other.
free 15-min check-ins
A check-in is a psychotherapy touch-in designed to allow you a quick phone contact with Shadow to remember coping skills, affirm your greatness and connection with higher self, or to reframe and accept triggers after an event and provide an honest re-interpretation of your intentions and actions.
experiential psycho-therapy (using body work and/or yoga)
Shadow will guide you through yoga poses or use energetic body work to move energy and heal while participating in traditional talk-psychotherapy. This is done after completing a traditional psychotherapy intake and when both you and Shadow agree it may be a beneficial method of treatment.

Before starting my healing journey with Shadow, I was in the midst of what you might characterize as an existential crisis. Shadow’s trauma-informed, strengths-based, and spiritual approach to therapy helped me connect with and utilize the tools I already had inside me to make some critical decisions about my life. Shadow empowers her clients to reach gently (not aggressively) into their hearts and souls for the keys to self-love and self-efficacy. -R.H.
