About Barbara Stafford
You don’t have to go it alone. I help you get to the root of what’s keeping you stuck so you can heal and thrive.
Past trauma – and the limiting beliefs and coping strategies you created to keep safe – are most likely what's holding you back from the life you want. The problem is that trauma is lodged in primitive and very powerful parts of your unconscious brain and body. You can't always talk, meditate or will it away. That’s why, up until now, your own efforts to change may have come up short. And why talk therapy and coaching alone may not have gotten you the results you were hoping for.
Transformation – becoming fully who you are and living the life you truly want – is often a hero’s journey. Treasure awaits you. But to reach it, you may have to cross dark scary landscapes, face fire-breathing dragons and decode confusing signals. It’s very easy to get lost. That’s why, since the dawn of time, every hero has needed an experienced guide.
I’d be honored to walk with you on your journey of healing and creating a full, abundant life. I’ve made this journey myself and know the terrain well. I’m trained in a number of gentle and effective modalities that help heal mind, body and spirit, including Somatic Experiencing and the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM), as well as shamanic and nature-based practices.
I see clients in my office in Santa Rosa, CA, and also on Skype.
