    Residual Effects of a Traumatic Heartbreak

    For the past few years I have been dealing with the residual effects of a traumatic heartbreak. After only 3 sessions, Delia’s gentle, non-invasive treatment helped me to release much of my anger, sadness, doubt, and resentment. I felt relieved, peaceful, both lighter and more grounded, like there was space in my body and mind.

    Out of Depression

    I am skeptical of most things — and that includes healing through means I don’t fully understand. But I had gone through a terrible separation, was suffering from deep depression, and my body was failing me physically in ways that neither I, nor western doctors (and there were many), could explain nor treat.

    Mindfulness and Listening to the Messages of My Body.

    Mindfulness and listening to the messages of my body (in my terms, “guts”) are things that were brought to my attention in session with Delia.  Once we become aware, it is increasingly difficult to ignore the signs. The fact that Delia is sparing of words has helped me to accept the new.  Like many cerebral …

    Emotional Work

    I came to Delia at a time when I desperately needed healing. Not only did she provide a safe place to be as real and as true as I possibly could be, she did not judge a thing I said. She provided comfort, an open heart, and opened me up to experiencing life on a …
