  • WELCOME TO DRAGONFLY TRAUMA COUNSELING CENTER!

    I am thrilled to announce the launch of my debut 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.”

    “At all junctures in this transformational journey, we are called to walk through thresholds of returning, sacred gateways or portals, which lead us deeper into our embodied interior landscape.”

    “This is our return. This is our transfiguration: we are radically changed psycho-emotionally, physically, and spiritually. As we pass through thresholds of returning, we transform…we are changed. We are made anew…Through our transfiguration, we become who we are meant to be; and, in doing so, we come home to our authentic selves–a place of belonging.”

    I invite you to read my book and I would love your review on Amazon!

    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!

    If you are suffering and feeling stuck, please reach out to us. We can help you. Please click on the contact buttons at the bottom of this page. We offer a Complimentary 15 minute consultation via phone. We hope to hear from you soon!

    “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
