"Perhaps we should love ourselves so fiercely that when others see us they know exactly how it should be done."
Rudy Franciso




There are few joys greater than interpersonal freedom. My walk with clients leads them to live unabashedly and authentically as they deserve and desire. I strongly believe this is our true human heritage. Our culture, and sometimes friends and family barrage us to fill our inner needs through external sources. This can often leave us feeling empty and deeply lacking. Freedom and a higher level of awareness about ourselves takes guided direction and a commitment to the inner work of discovery. A deep excavation into the self. My collaboration with you releases anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, or whatever repeatedly binds you to a negative narrative from your past that no longer serves your present.

Most of us have experienced trauma whether we recognize it as such. To heal, we must "resurrect the deep pain within us and give it a place to live that's not within our bodies. Let it live in art, writing, music or be devoured by building a healthier connection within yourself or to others. Our bodies are not coffins for pain to be buried in. Put that sh*t somewhere else." iya eh-hee-may@ehimeora

If you are ready to explore, I promise you together we'll find buried treasure. My passion is to  serve you by standing right beside you as you navigate to a new terrain of liberation. Making the appointment is your first step toward healing!
