YOU ARE WELCOME HERE
HEALING ISN'T ABOUT FIXING BUT ABOUT restoring connection TO THE INHERENT HEALTH THAT WAS THERE ALL ALONG.
YOUR (BODY) STORY ISN'T OVER YET.
THERE'S SO MUCH MORE TO EXPLORE.
For the past five years, I've been working with women 1:1 on resolving their personal and inherited trauma spells and creating their very own path to post-trauma bloom.
I'm here to support you and be a guide on your path to feeling free in your body - to feeling safe and sovereign in your body. I'm here to support you in alchemizing your (body) story and stepping into a deeply nourishing, loving and powerful relationship with your whole self.
My work centers around the belief that healing isn't about fixing but about restoring connection to the inherent health that was there all along. This looks like building bridges to all the parts that have become exiled through trauma (your body included) and help them integrate, catch up to present time and a momentum of possibility.
As a survivor of physical and emotional violence and an abusive relationship, I know how tender, wild and scary it can feel to step onto a path towards post-trauma bloom. To really choose yourself. To choose life and joy and freedom.
What I know is that we're all deeply deserving of choosing ourselves without hesitation - fully and wholly as we are.
In this together,
HI THERE, I'M LISA FARVALD (formerly Nagel).
Trust in you and your path. In your wholeness and inherent worth. In your original blueprint of well-being and sovereignty. In your intuition, your pace, and rhythm. Trust that everything that is needed for our journey together is already within.
Allowing the full spectrum of (y)our human-ness to be present. Being real, uncensored, and welcoming to all there is. Gently verbalizing and humanizing experiences of shame. Letting perfectionism melt away.
Joy is the guidepost we keep referring back to and move toward. Moving with an attitude of deep reverence towards our stories and recognizing that we fully deserve to be tended to with utmost care no matter what. Our stories matter. Our bodies matter. Our hearts and souls matter.
ASKING THE RIGHT KIND OF QUESTIONS AND MAKING EXTREME COMPLEXITY SIMPLE ARE TWO OF MY SUPERPOWERS.
GENTLE BRAVERY IS ONE OF MY LOVE LANGUAGES.
I trust in our inherent human-ness, in the alchemy of grief, in the softness of summer mornings, in ritual and in nervous system care. In the path that unfolds in harmony with our natural, inherent rhythms.
I believe in unfiltered sharing in safe spaces, in allowing ourselves to be fully seen and lovingly witnessed. In laughter, togetherness, and connection.
I experienced both physical and emotional violence from peers as a teenager and an abusive relationship in my early twenties which left me in constant spirals of overwhelm, and hyper-productivity followed by collapse and burn-out. I felt deeply unsafe in my body and the only way I knew how to feel "safe" was by controlling my body, my environment, and my relationships.
On the outside, I was functioning, but on the inside, I felt deeply unlovable, out of place, and like I was a fraud. I was stuck in cycles of self-punishment, control and continuing the cycles of violence that I had experienced.
All of this led me down a path of discovery - a deep dive into what it meant to belong to myself and be in a healthy, nourishing relationship with all my parts - my body, my heart and my spirit, and how I could connect to others in ways that felt true and safe.
It led me to bodywork and somatic experiencing which became my way of reclaiming safety and sovereignty in my body. It led me to break up with self-punishment through withholding or controlling food.
It led me to deepen my spiritual practice - to grow roots into rituals and practices that became portals of truth and belonging.
It led me to learn everything I possibly could (and train with wise teachers) about trauma and how we can heal in holistic, lasting ways.
This work of stepping onto the path of post-trauma bloom is deeply meaningful. It's where our present meets our possible future bloom in tangible and touchable ways.
On the path, we unshame feeling deeply, reclaim our inner knowing, and trust the body as a compass that never leads us astray. We wade through the fog of incomplete emergency responses and take one attuned and in consent with ourselves step forward at a time. We collect knowledge and wisdom that serves us in meaningful ways.
We listen and pay loving attention to the nudges we're receiving - we follow the next right step our body is guiding us towards. We take those baby steps until the fog clears and a brilliant view is revealed - where we see ourselves as safe enough, as whole - as free - where we remember who we are. Where our bodies are portals of belonging, of joy and power.
