    "The day that you plant the fruit is not the same day that you eat the fruit. Be patient and stay the course" - Fabienne Fredrickson 

According to the outside world you "have it all". You have the job, the relationship, the house, but little do they know what is going up there in your head and your heart. You are anxious, stressed and overwhelmed and no amount of overthinking works. Your loved ones have some idea about what you're going through, but even they don't know it all or they don't really understand because you are so independent as present as having it together. You don't want to worry them, you think you can take care of it, or you'd be embarrassed and ashamed if others knew what you wee thinking and feeling. You recognize that life is ok but it's not where you want it to be. You know that you are not living up to your greatest potential.

You have managed to survive the day to day stresses of life, but life is becoming overwhelming for you these days. Something major happens and trauma and hurts from the past come flooding back into your life and it gets hard. You thought that you had put the past behind you or you thought that the past didn't hurt you at all. And then you're faced with your life getting out of control and you are desperate now to find healing because you no longer want to suffer.  

The laundry is piling up, the stove is a mess and you've got to make sure the kids get to school on time with their assignments and you have to be at work by 8AM. Your spouse asks you "what's for dinner" and you're overwhelmed because you haven't thought about it. You've got deadlines at work, you have to figure out how to be at 2 practices at once and you feel bad that you might have to miss one, and get fast food on the way home. Your kids roll their eyes at you casually telling you that you suck for missing their practice yet again and that Mary's mom ALWAYS makes it to their games and cooks homemade meals. You can't remember the last time you got to sit down and do what you wanted to do. Fleeting memories of life before kids, a mortgage and soccer practice cross your mind and you want to scream.

The alarm goes off and you feel "blah". You want to hit the snooze button and lay under the covers for a few more minutes. Your mind starts racing, you start panicking and you start dreading the day before you're barely awake yet. You know that there is more to life and you want something different but you don't know what to do, you don't feel like you have a choice and you are scared to take the next steps. You have tried to figure things out on your own, but you struggle and you know that you need help but you don't really want to admit it. You hear the negative voices in your head, your own voice, the voice of a parent, a loved one, a boss, telling you that you're no good, telling you you can't do this or to stop whining and be grateful. You are anxious, sometimes sad or blue, dealing with past childhood memories or traumas and overwhelmed by current life responsibilities. You have no one to talk to because you are ashamed or feeling guilty about your thoughts or what might come out of your mouth. You are tired of living in the past, being held back in the present and worrying about the future.


I can help because I have been where you are right now.
 

 

You’re here because you’re tired of being tired.

Pretending that everything’s okay when it’s not, is no longer sustainable. It's exhausting waiting and hoping for things to get better. You’re done with feeling ’less than’. You’re done focusing on whether you think that you’re failing. You're done feeling pent up rage and resentment continue to build. You're done ignoring yourself.

Hi and welcome! My name is Edwige but everyone calls me Eddie. My specialty is in working with those who are struggling with the stress and anxiety of everyday life. Specifically, I see a lot of people who are have experienced trauma and are moms.

You are feeling neglected and unsupported. I am here to listen and understand your suffering. I am here to help you with your anxiety, your perfectionist expectations, your racing thoughts, and your negative mindset.

I also work with people who have experienced longstanding trauma from their past. There are unresolved hurts which is making it difficult to function. Let's focus on helping you heal and see your best self beyond what you are currently experiencing. Let's focus on helping you see your self-worth and encourage you to overcome the worries, the traumas of the past, insecurities and fears that may be keeping you stuck.

In working together, through a mindfulness based lens, you will develop insight into the messages, thoughts, beliefs, choices and values that may be contributing to your suffering. I invite you to be curious about your struggles, knowing that you can be supported and can learn from these challenges. Sometimes these issues are a result of intergenerational traumas and childhood messages that you don't know how to break free of. By utilizing a variety of methods, such as values work, spirituality, guided meditation, visualization, breath work, sand play and EMDR, we plant the seeds that will end the suffering and bring greater awareness, self-confidence and change into your life.
