A Little About The Journey As I See It
The work I do with others is based on the simple understanding that we are here to heal and transform. This is simple, but not always easy. One of the gifts I bring to this work is an ability to provide a safe and creative environment in which to do this exploration. I listen deeply, witness, and am able to empathize with the experience of those I work with. I can facilitate you in bridging the gap between seeing your motivations, dreams, and desires and those places in you that block, defend, and “get in your way”. From that informed place we can work together, guided, toward setting clear intentions and making new, conscious, life choices.
Transformation occurs when you heal old wounds, unblock defended places, and change undesirable life patterns. Transformation means a life of joy, healthy relationship with those we love, and attunement to Divine grace. Isn’t this what we all long for? I am grateful each day for the tools that I have been given and those beings I have the honor to work with.
To quote Angeles Arrien, author of The Four Fold Way,the work of healing is:
To show up; choose to be present
To pay attention to what has heart and meaning
To tell the truth without blame and judgment
To be open to the outcome
• Relationship/Couples Counseling
• Trauma/ Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (see full Brainspotting information under Trauma)
• Intuitive and Spiritual Exploration
Brainspotting is a powerful, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurobiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of other challenging symptoms. Brainspotting is simultaneously a form of diagnosis and treatment which is deep, direct, powerful, and contained. See full Brainspotting information under the Trauma section.
Any life event which causes significant physical and/or emotional injury and distress, in which the person powerfully experiences being overwhelmed, helpless, or trapped, can become a traumatic experience. Brainspotting is a powerful tool to reduce not only the symptoms, but the root of the trauma.
Testimonial for Brainspotting:
“As a local therapist and an occasional client of Miriam Ramsey, I can not say enough about the profound effects of Brainspotting. I have seen it first hand in my practice and have great results working with Miriam. She is a gifted therapist who has great knowledge using this evidenced based modality.”
