Every interaction I've had with Elizabeth has catalyzed an evolution and expansion of my understanding of myself and the world. Her earnest commitment to the Greatest Good shows through her deep integrity and humility in her work, and creates an unbreakable sense of trust between patient and practitioner that is essential to healing. I have had encounters and formed relationships with quite a range of energetically sensitive people and I can wholeheartedly say that I find Elizabeth to be in the top tier in terms of her clarity, sense of purpose, and ability to create and hold a safe space. I trust her, and in doing so, I am able to trust myself more fully in the work we do together.

I appreciated the way Elizabeth was so present with me and aided me in being more present with myself. While navigating intense physical sensations that are connected to emotional upheaval, she helped me to stay grounded in my truth throughout.

The session was more than helpful... Elizabeth's allowance of my expression of shadow aspects and painful memories was incredibly helpful. I've never felt a more sacred container for such energy to be released. That pain had been buried for years. It was simple and concise, yet with amazing depth and power being unveiled. I would absolutely return for further support and plan to recommend her to any friend in need of such a healing.

One way to think of the nervous system is as a "switchboard" for the whole being. It is what relays messages between all of the parts of ourselves and keeps us stable as well as flexible enough to grow, and it is also what communicates between ourselves and others & the world around us. So in this work, we are gently re-configuring the main switchboard which effects the entirety of the system.
Organic Intelligence understands that coherence within small systems (one individual, for example), leads to coherence within bigger systems (families, communities), & eventually to culture and the planet at large. Therefore, it is not simply about symptom reduction (though feeling better is for sure a part of the plan!), but also about positive evolutionary change at a big-picture level.
Before working with Elizabeth, I noticed repeating patterns in my life that were limiting my ability to break through relational roadblocks. Roadblocks that were keeping me from experiencing the depth of intimacy that I truly want to experience. During the session I felt fully seen, heard, and held in her presence. Elizabeth showed a tremendous ability to make me feel totally safe and accepted, no matter what came up in the session. After working with 20+ professionals over the past 10 years, I can honestly say that Elizabeth is the most gifted trauma healer I've ever come across. I'll be sending all of my friends, family, and clients to Elizabeth knowing she'll take good care of them, and will make a significant impact on improving their lives.

breathes, spills in
and flows through
to fill and feed
every starved and isolated hermitage
in the landscape of my body.
through the effortless mouth
of the flaw on my teacup
the shape of a human woman.
Now that I've stopped spending
all my days trying to patch that nick:
What to do with this wellspring?
The river says:
Let me carry you.
Working with Elizabeth is nothing short of transformational. With integrity and a balanced blend of strength and loving compassion, Elizabeth brings authenticity and power to her healing sessions. I chose to work in a series with her because the power of our first session was so real. After, I felt the stress leave my body and in its place a fresh perspective on the present day. Working in a series enables her to understand my patterns and challenges so that each session serves as an opportunity for deeper and more profound healing to occur.
Elizabeth holds a unique strength and wisdom, creating the conditions for an appropriate level of healing and progress to occur within each session. I have had the opportunity to work with many healers along my path and few match the strength in presence and integrity that Elizabeth holds. She is a clear, clean, supportive presence, free of ego and preconceived outcomes. If you are looking for a transformational experience, where real results will manifest through work with a loving and effective healer, then you need look no further than Elizabeth Stauder.
