I was lucky enough to find Carrie while looking for hypnobirthing classes during my pregnancy. My husband and I joined the classes during our second trimester, and Carrie was absolutely wonderful. The classes helped ease any anxiety I had about giving birth, and put me into a really positive headspace. During my 3rd trimester, my family suffered the sudden loss of my brother and I was struggling with intense grief, guilt, and panic attacks. I'm so grateful I had Carrie during this difficult time. Not only does she facilitate hypnobirthing classes, she also offers hypnotherapy for trauma recovery. I had 4 CRP (conscious recovery program) sessions with her and I can't begin to express how profoundly these helped me process my grief. She is deeply intuitive and I felt so connected to her and comfortable opening up and being completely vulnerable. The depth of her empathy for her clients is truly a gift. During our final session, I felt very connected with my brother, as if he was there with me, guiding me through the session. Afterwards, it felt as if a huge weight lifted off of me. Following my sessions, I didn't have any more panic attacks and was able to release a lot of the guilt I had associated with his passing. I'm so grateful to have had Carrie to help guide me through this time, it truly was priceless.
Carrie's Conscious Recovery Program: Life & Birth Trauma Healing has changed the trajectory of my life and my family's lives. Carrie is compassionate, wise, and has enormous professional knowledge in her field. But perhaps the most extraordinary thing she has to offer, and what has impacted my motherhood journey the most, is her humility and excitement in coming alongside the work I was already doing to heal from my first birth experience and intentionally prepare for the second birth experience. She has answers but doesn't claim to have them all; she has ideas but is most interested in hearing what her clients' vision and hopes are; she can share from a deep place of personal experience with healing but has found her mission in nurturing the experiences of others. My second birth, on the surface, didn't go at all like I had planned, but because Carrie and I had worked together to envision what mattered far below the surface, the arrival of baby number two was still the fulfillment of all my hopes. She was an absolutely essential part of my birth team. I can't recommend her Conscious Recovery Program enough and can only wish every mama had the chance to work with someone as special as Carrie.
Being able to put my trust in an individual had been so hard for me but when I met Carrie I knew she was committed in helping me be better. She was confident and well educated in her work which made me feel safe in her space. Opening up, peeling the layers back had helped me overcome so much that I had stuffed down.
During the conscious recovery program, Carrie helped me rewrite the storyline and eliminate the terrible flashbacks that I could not get out of my head. It was a traumatic experience that was stored in my body and had recently surfaced.
Without her help and guidance I would not be on the journey I am today. I am forever grateful for her helping me overcome my fears, struggles, heartaches and pain that was so heavy on my heart. Today I am different because of her ♥️
Carrie's CRP sessions have been a real source of support and inspiration in my life. With her gentle approach that is sharp and insightful, I reached deep epiphanies about the feelings I was internally dealing with around my past pregnancy and birth. Despite uncomfortable feelings that came up, the sessions were so enjoyable, and I left them feeling empowered with my knowledge and tools to see the experiences and future differently. Carrie is so accommodating with scheduling and styles that work for different people, which with time got me to become less sensitive and particular, and more resilient. I never worry that I will feel judged. Carrie is solution oriented, and is happy when clients end up needing her less vs more. She is truly committed to the happiness, well being and authentic healing of her clients. Carrie is a light to women everywhere.
