Hello, I’m Sherry.  Thank you for visiting my website.  If you are suffering the effects of childhood abuse or neglect, the loss of a significant loved one, or other trauma, you are not alone.  My father had an unpredictable temper that verged on rage. He punished my sisters and me unfairly and unreasonably.  I thought he was crazy, and I was so afraid of becoming like him, I stifled my own anger for most of my life. 

I also am a mother who lost her only child in a tragic accident when he was only two years old.  When my son died, I not only suppressed my grief, but with it, overwhelming guilt and shame.  I buried all of it deep inside me for 34 years, rarely acknowledging it.  Then my husband died, too, and my grief at losing him brought my earlier, buried grief to the surface.  This time, I knew I had to seek help.  First, I found it in a bereavement support group, where I learned about grief and that, if we want to heal, we have to allow ourselves to fully face and experience our grief and learn to move through it; not over, under or around it, but through it.

Then, I learned about Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and how to literally “tap” into the deep, dark places inside me where guilt, regret and shame lived in the shadows, to bring them into the light of my own awareness, acknowledge them, and release them.

This was not a magic bullet; I was not healed overnight.  But as I tapped using EFT, I began to discover and release the unresolved, buried emotions I was still carrying from my old, often mistaken, beliefs.  These were not just about the shock, emptiness, despair and other feelings associated with the deaths of my loved ones. Tapping also helped me heal the many wounds of my childhood.

This was such a powerful experience for me, it inspired me to become certified in EFT and additional energy techniques.  As an EFT Energy Practitioner, I am now able to reach out to you.  If you are experiencing emotional distress, I can help you.  We will work together in a safe, non-judgmental way to help you face what is possibly too hard to face on your own.  Together we will use these techniques to successfully process your negative emotions, moving through them into gratitude, love and peace.
