  • WELCOME TO DRAGONFLY TRAUMA COUNSELING CENTER!

    I am thrilled to announce my first book,

    TRANSFIGURATION

    30 Meditations Inspired by
    Transforming Trauma & Spirituality

    My book can be found online at Amazon. I invite you to take a “Look Inside” at Amazon. It is available in hardcover, paperback, and Kindle.

    I would love your review!

    Here is a taste of TRANSFIGURATION:

    “Transforming trauma, an embodied interior transfiguring process, leads to post-traumatic spiritual growth. We are soul-wounded. This soul-wounding is about how we are severed from our authentic selves at the deepest place in us, the numinous terrain of our souls, our embodied being.”

    “Grieving is holy soul work. As wounded trauma survivors we are intimately familiar with grief. We have long carried our lamentations in silence, swallowing our tears, until our grief cries out for expression and healing. We begin our lament.”

    Look for forthcoming announcements reels, offerings, excerpts and more about my book on social media:

    Neuroscience tells us we can transform trauma, when we use the right kind of somatic-based trauma therapies that access our traumas which are stored in our bodies. We can get unstuck and heal. Our systems just need the best tools to be restored. You do NOT need to live in survival mode! You CAN transform your pain and learn how to make a life worth living!

    Self-compassion transforms our ruptured and fragmented selves into healed aspects of our whole authentic self.”  Ava Dasya Rasa from her book, TRANSFIGURATION 30 Meditations Inspired by Transforming Trauma & Spirituality
