How I work with clients
Steve’s passion is treating trauma by utilizing an eclectic, integrative, mix of modalities including current evidence-based western practices, ancient healing traditions, mindfulness, meditation, and somatic focused trauma modalities. This allows her to meet you where you are in the present moment, and session to session.
Having processed his own traumatic experiences and doing the required integration has resulted in his own metamorphosis. This personal growth and transformation allows him to hold the space for you as you reconnect to your own inner healer. Steve understands that this journey can be painful and difficult at times, but there is nothing more worthwhile than embarking on your own inner healing journey.
The ultimate goal is to help you become an expert in yourself and be actively involved in all treatment decisions. Steve believes in a collaborative approach and believe YOU are the best expert in YOU! Steve personally knows that healing is not only possible, but absolutely liberating and transforming!
Plant Medicine Integration
Rising Lotus Healing is aware of the growing number of individuals and groups traveling to Peru and Ecuador to participate in psychedelic plant medicine retreats. These individuals may have insufficient support for the challenging experiences that sometimes occur and less than ideal support for the unfolding of positive experiences. We offer assistance in the integration of psychedelic induced mystical, insightful and/or challenging experiences. The ultimate goal is to be able to apply the insights gained and transform your life for the better.
