ABOUT

A Deeper Well

A Deeper Well is dedicated to empowering individuals to discover their own power in order to promote growth, flourish in community, and experience holistic healing, both inside and out. My vision is to awaken each individual's own power to heal from their past and grow in holistic wellness. Above all else, I value...

  • Empowerment to embrace authenticity in relationship with self and with others

  • Ongoing pursuit of self-knowledge, self-acceptance, and increased self-esteem

  • Increased self-awareness through mindfulness practices in all areas of life

  • Discovery of one's inner peace and spirituality, however that looks for them 

  • Cultivation of true community and support

Through A Deeper Well, I use a variety of mind-body connection, holistic approaches, and ways to access the subconscious in order to help guide individuals through their own healing and personal growth.

My Story

I have been a helper and a healer for people my entire life, however it never occurred to me to turn it into a career path.

 

After graduating from high school, I spent a year abroad in England, then landed in Chicago for my undergraduate studies. While I always found psychology to be an interesting subject, I somehow never once thought about pursuing it. Instead, I chose to double major communication studies and Biblical and theological studies, and entered the world of event planning after I graduated.

 

As much as I loved wedding and event planning, something was missing. Deep down, I knew that I was meant to be doing something more - that there was a part of me that was not being fulfilled. That’s why,  after a few years I jumped at a chance to work for a local non-profit organization working to provide a healing place for survivors of sex trafficking. Although this contracted job and role itself was not something that I loved (I was helping with a capital campaign), I knew that being a part of this organization was something I was meant to do. I learned about the effects of trauma, different healing modalities, the importance of advocacy and some of the in’s and out’s of running an organization for survivors. But, most of all, I met amazing people who trusted me, shared their story, and helped me discover that THIS is what I was meant to do - to provide a safe place for others to process, heal, and grow.

 

It didn’t take me long to jump into this world - I signed up for a masters program and started within a matter of months, studying clinical mental health counseling, with a focus in trauma. While walking into the clinical world, I also began to learn more and more about holistic healing modalities. Even as I was preparing to work within the clinical world, a part of me knew that this work only went so far - the clinical couldn’t reach every part of a person and couldn’t provide full healing. Almost right away, I looked for ways to incorporate holistic, alternative, and spiritual healing modalities into my clinical work.

As I have pursued these holistic healing modalities and utilized them myself, I have discovered aspects of my being that I know I would not have reached through talk therapy alone. I have uncovered deeply embedded limiting beliefs, met and healed numerous different parts of my being, and have been given profound spiritual experiences - all through healing approaches such as hypnotherapy, meditation, energy work and breathwork. From this, A Deeper Well was born with a mission to empower others to experience the same.

 

For me, this personal healing and growth journey will never end - I am dedicated to connecting and aligning with my authentic self in a deeper and deeper way throughout my life. It isn't easy, and it may bring up memories and beliefs that are tempting to keep hidden - however living as true SELF is so much better. It's worth the journey.
