Welcome to Shifting Sands
Holistic healing for women who have experienced sexual abuse

Hi, I’m Heather, and I help women who have been sexually abused discover what it is like to feel validated, loved, and deserving.

Does this sound like you?

After experiencing sexual abuse, no matter how recently or how long ago, and no matter what form it took, it is common to experience trauma reactions.  These reactions will be unique to you, but often include feelings of anger, worry, despair and fear.

 

You may feel like you have lost your sense of self, or are grieving for the woman you once were.  

 

You may have completely lost your confidence and feel like you are not enough. 

 

Your work may be suffering. You may be struggling to sleep. You may not be eating, or may be overeating.

 

It can be difficult, or even feel impossible, to trust other people - making it challenging to form friendships and intimate relationships, or to ask for support.

 

You are not alone. It is not your fault. 

 

It is possible to move from feeling unworthy, unlovable, fearful and anxious to a place of joy, confidence and self-love.

 

I know, because I have done it. 

Why I am here

I’m Heather. I grew up with an abusive, alcoholic father. I experienced sexual, physical and emotional abuse as a child and was date raped in my 20s.

 

I was depressed, tired, physically ill, angry, bitter, stuck and sad. When a co-worker began training in Resonance Repatterning® I was introduced to the therapy and began the work that changed my life. Everyone told me how different I was!

 

I am now a certified practitioner of Resonance Repatterning®, with additional certifications in EFT and TFT Tapping. Over the last seven years I have specialized in working with women with sexual abuse experience and I want to share with you the same techniques I have used to heal from sexual trauma.

"I can’t thank you enough for setting me on a path of growth and healing. It’s through your work I was able to confront my fears that had kept me stagnant. I can wade right into the pain of healing because I know I’m never alone.  Thank you again!"  --SE
