"When Carly came to help me, I was having a hard time communicating effectively with both my 3 yr old and my 6 yr old. They were constantly screaming and crying at me, running away and would not be able to tell me what they were feeling. After meeting with Carly, she helped me realize that my 6 yr old did not like to be disciplined in front of others. Now, I try to take my 6 yr old aside privately, get down to her level, look her in the eyes and then tell her why I did not like what she did, etc. She still does not like to be disciplined but she does not run away crying and screaming anymore.
We realized my 3 yr old needed me to communicate to her more positively. For instance, instead of saying "Don't!" or "No!" or repeating myself a thousand times to her, I changed the way I phrased my requests with a positive spin. So "Don't jump on the couch!" turned into "If you want to jump, go jump on the trampoline." "No coloring on the furniture" turned into "Crayons are not meant to be used on the furniture, they're meant to be used on paper" and repeating myself a thousand times about cleaning her room turning into "If you want to watch a show, then you must pick up your room." No yelling, no tears. It doesn't always work of course but it's better than it used to be!"
"At first I was extremely skeptical about trying Tapping. I had watched what looked like to be a very generic “self-help” video online of the technique and I convinced myself that tapping was bogus; I would simply have to deal with my constant anxiety on my own. And then one night I found myself sitting down with Julie as she offered to do some tapping with me. I reluctantly agreed to give it a shot. As I shared with her about my struggles with depression and anxiety over the past year, she instructed me to try tapping on various points throughout my head and body as I talked to her. Halfway through the tears began to pour out and I felt a huge release in my chest and a lightness permeated throughout my extremities. I actually felt less anxious and more hopeful.
Although I am unable to do this kind of energy work with Julie face-to-face because I live out of town, I have been able to successfully take the basics of what she had taught me and use it as another tool in my “toolbox” of self-care techniques, especially when the physical tingling in my hands and feet as well as difficulty breathing begin to creep up as symptoms of my anxiety.
Since that first introduction to Tapping, Julie has made herself available to do some tapping over the phone. Even in the middle of a coffee shop populated by other customers, I felt comfortable engaging in this technique in a public place. Julie is a living embodiment of genuine care, compassion, and holistic healing. She has taught me that I don’t have to be complacent with living in the uptightness of anxiety. I will not claim to be completely cured of my feelings of worry, anxiety, and sporadic depression. However, I now have one more resource to turn toward when I feel like my other self-healing techniques just aren’t cutting it. Along with yoga, mindful breath practices, and talk-therapy, I have found that Tapping is an extremely significant component of what contributes toward my personal healing of body, mind, and spirit."
"The first time I tapped with Julie, I broke down in tears. Firstly, because I was so relieved to have figured out a solution to the issue I was dealing with. Secondly, because I was so relieved to have found a tool to help me deal with my anxiety.
I never categorized myself as one with "anxiety", because when I thought of individuals suffering from anxiety, I thought of those debilitated by negative thoughts, unable to get out of bed. Additionally, whenever I felt stressed, I would (and still do) use exercise and sport to deal with the anxiety.
Tapping with Julie made me realize that any tiny amount of stress or anxious thoughts is relevant and important, and can be taken care of by tapping. Additionally, as helpful as sport and exercise might be, tapping is useful in the moment and immediately. It helps individuals discuss the issue at hand and figure out long term solutions, as opposed to simply creating a distraction.
More than the benefits of tapping, talking with Julie is one of the most special gifts that I have been afforded. Julie is kind, non-judgemental, open minded, an amazing listener, solution oriented, and patient. The way she gives me dignity and care while tapping makes me feel like my challenges are hers as well, which allows me to feel anything but alone, as Julie helps me learn the tools to deal with stress and anxiety."
