I am an inner healing practitioner. This method incorporates intercessory, guided, and listening prayer as a way of addressing spiritual and emotional blocks. The two models of inner healing prayer I use are called Elijah House, Sozo, and HeartSync. All of these models draw from Biblical promises and teaching to inform their approach to prayer. Another of my methods of inner healing is called Splankna Therapy. It is a biblically based protocol for energy psychology. “Energy Psychology” utilizes the same system in the body that acupuncture and chiropractic are based on to resolve unbalanced emotions that are stored in the body. “Energy Techniques” is a collective term used to refer to a variety of methods based on the use, modification, and manipulation of energy fields that look at imbalances within the person’s energy system as well as the energetic influence of thoughts, beliefs, and emotions on the body. The prevailing premise of the Energy Techniques is that the flow and balance of the body’s electromagnetic and more subtle energies are important for optimal physical, spiritual, and emotional functioning. Splankna Therapy is designed to help get to the origin of an emotional issue with the goal of rapidly desensitizing the emotional stress connected to a past event. Splankna Therapy incorporates elements from several newly-emerging energy-based psychotherapy, coaching, and self-help techniques, specifically Neuro-Emotional Technique, Thought Field Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. Prayer is intertwined throughout the protocol with a deep emphasis on trusting the lead of the Holy Spirit. Basic biblical principles are also incorporated such as confession, repentance and forgiveness.
Inner healing prayer sessions are available in person and via secure online video calls. Splankna sessions are only available in person.
Although energy techniques like Splankna Therapy and spiritual approaches like inner healing prayer appear to have promising emotional, spiritual, and physical health benefits they have yet to be fully researched by the Western academic, medical, and psychological communities and, therefore may be considered experimental. These techniques are self-regulated and they are considered alternative or complementary to the healing arts that are licensed in the State of Georgia. Because Energy Techniques are relatively new healing approaches, the extent of their effectiveness, as well as their risks and benefits, are not fully known. If you ever have questions or concerns about the nature of the theories, methods, approaches and/or techniques I use, please feel free to ask me for further resources or references.
Outcome Expectations/Risk & Benefits/Treatment Plan
Please note that it is impossible to guarantee any specific results regarding your goals using any of the approaches I offer in my practice and I cannot know how you will personally respond to any of the approaches. However, we will work together to achieve the best possible results for you. Our work together requires your very active involvement, honesty, and openness in order to change your thoughts, feelings and/or behavior. You will have to work both in and out of our sessions. I will ask for your feedback and views on our work and its progress, and will expect you to respond openly and honestly. As with any intervention, there are risks associated with Energy Psychology and Inner Healing Prayer.
Risks might include remembering, talking about, or experiencing unpleasant events which results in uncomfortable levels of feelings like sadness, guilt, anxiety, anger, frustration, worry, etc, or experiencing anxiety, depression or insomnia, etc., or having difficulties with other people. Being confronted with your difficulties can be very challenging. Some changes may lead to what seems to be worsening circumstances or even losses. In addition, if you choose to engage Splankna Therapy or Inner Healing Prayer, emotional or physical sensations or additional unresolved memories may surface which could be perceived as negative side effects. You may experience some temporary emotional distress and physical discomfort related to prior life experiences.
If we are to work together we will need to specify methods, risks and benefits of treatments, the approximate time commitment involved, costs and other aspects of your particular situation. We will discuss a plan that seems most appropriate to help you reach your goals. However, regardless of our work together, you agree to take full responsibility for your self-care in the emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual dimensions of your life.
