Life Reclaiming Program for Survivors of Sexual Abuse, Trauma, and PTSD

Blossom Beyond Abuse - Reiki Master - PTSD and Trauma Therapies - Sexual Assault Counseling

Melody Testimonial

My work with Sunny has been life changing in the most unexpected ways. In learning from Sunny I have been given insight into my behavior and responses. I understand the why and how trauma has affected my life and decisions. One of the other aspects of working with Sunny is the peace from knowing that it’s not about what’s wrong with me, but what’s happened to me. This has allowed me to move from victim to victor. I have found grace for myself and others.

I absolutely recommend anyone seeking healing to pursue working with Sunny. You are worth it. Your life is worth it. Sunny’s wealth of experience and education is very clear and her approach is innovative and effective


Reiki Master,
Life Coach, Sexual Assault Crisis Counselor

Welcome dear one! I’m glad that you found Blossom Beyond Abuse. This is a place of Safety, Privacy, Compassion, and Empowerment. You may just be beginning your search or you’ve looked elsewhere and haven’t found the answers yet.

I offer a unique, non-clinical, whole being approach for those looking for an alternative or complement to doctors and therapists.

It is a very different perspective on healing from abuse, neglect and trauma. I am not a doctor or therapist. I am a Reiki Master/Energy Healer for 29 years, a Certified Life Coach and Certified Sexual Assault Crisis Counselor.

“Know Thyself”, is my mission statement. We are unlimited conscious energy having a very limited mind-based physical experience. The mind is a program that runs on auto through your head. These are limiting thoughts that were adopted at a very young age from people (parents and influencers in your life) that were passed on from their family. We become conditioned to think that we are these thoughts. They can hold us back for a lifetime. If you examined your thoughts for one day, you may come understand why you are where you presently are. This is not to inflict blame. That is the last thing I want to do.

We are here to remember who we are. The key is found in the heart. Very few escape the mind completely, but we can train ourselves to move out of it for extended periods of time more and more. As we do this our life is transformed. This is what I teach from a deep well of experience.

You may think, what does this have to do with abuse and trauma? It is a way out…out of the suffering, lack, illness, bad relationships, loneliness and pain, as the mind is continually reminded of the trauma and abuse that has or is occurring in your life.

The Living Light Program is a step by step process of moving you out of the mind and introduces you to yourself as an energetic being. From limited to Unlimited. It is mind blowing and life changing!

I know this is one of the most devastating times in your life…I know because I’ve been there. I am a survivor of childhood sexual assault. I healed myself by learning about my true nature; that I am a powerful energy being capable of extraordinary things.

I stopped believing the thoughts that ran through my head that said I was unworthy, shameful and undeserving of a great life. You would have never recognized me if you knew me before my transformation began. This opportunity is available to you.

The medical community is now recognizing how important peer to peer support is in healing trauma. It is now incorporated into many mental health programs.

Let’s explore together, the relief from suffering at the hands of abuse, neglect and trauma…the release of pain and illness, shame, guilt and unworthiness. And your transformation into a powerful and vibrant person capable of extraordinary things.

I don’t ask you to adopt these principles on my word, I’ll show you how to experience them for yourself.

You are so very loved. You deserve happiness…it is your birthright.

Recover from the Label of PTSD

Although PTSD is a diagnosis and I don’t treat diagnoses, it is something that survivors experience and have been labeled with. What if you could be free of labels? What if the label is what keeps you stuck? My practices are different, very different from the clinical community…and they work. Energy is a powerful force in the Universe. You are energy. It is my joy to uncover this most powerful part of you and free you of all labels.

Recover from sexual trauma and assault in the military

Sexual Assualt in the Military

Military sexual assault is widespread and very rarely prosecuted. Many victims of sexual abuse and violence actually experience trauma twice: once, at the hands of the offender, and a second time, at the hands of the institution they serve. It is frowned upon to report, leading to suffering in silence and when it has, there is retaliation, even discharge. You’ve been ostracized by your fellow servicemen and let down by your country. What a horrific way for you who has served and defended our freedom to be treated. I welcome you to with open arms and heart.


There Are Common Threads in All Forms of Sexual Abuse and Trauma

How to Deal with Anxiety from SExual Abuse, Trauma and PTSD- Reiki Healing Services
Anxiety & Stress Relief

You’re late for an appointment that you’ve missed 2 times before with a therapist who is scheduled one month in advance. You didn’t sleep well last night…your mind was racing. You are having difficulty concentrating and can’t figure out what to wear and the dog just peed on the floor. You’re feeling anxious and stressed! Stress and anxiety have become a way of life for you. There are many tools to change these patterns developed post-sexual abuse and trauma. One that has worked for me is binaural beats. I listen to them in the morning and evening. They have helped me to move into my energy self where infinite peace resides. They calm me during the day and prepare me for a restful night’s sleep. Give it a try! I offer many selections in The Living Light Guidebook.

Overcome the Guilt and Shame from Sexual Abuse and Trauma (3)
Why Do I Feel Guilt & Shame?

Shame hides. It disguises itself as anger, depression, and addiction to name a few. Guilt and fear are close friends. Fear is what you feel when you believe that you are guilty of something and deserve punishment. But these are games of the mind.

Emotions originate in the mind. But you are not the mind. Once you experience yourself as energy, you will realize that emotions no longer have control of you.

I’ll work with you on this in the Living Light Program.


Reiki Healing Practitioner for Relieving Trauma

Reiki Energy Healing

Ready to Experience A Powerful Tool to Overcome Trauma?

My signature program is the Living Light Program. A cornerstone of the program is distance/remote Reiki energy healing to open and activate your chakras and energy field.

As a sexual abuse survivor, I found Reiki healing to be transformative in many ways including:

  • Relief from stress and anxiety,
  • Releasing guilt and shame,
  • Reclaiming my sense of self and rebuilding confidence,
  • Cultivating greater self-love,
  • Overcoming trauma and symptoms of PTSD, and so much more!

It was so life-changing for me, I became a Reiki Master and Certified Sexual Assualt Counselor to help others move on from their abuse and live an empowered life.

Reiki Healing Practitioner for Relieving Trauma

Reiki, simply put, is a Japanese technique for relaxation that promotes healing. I have found it to be so much more than that!  It literally shifted the trajectory of my life.”

Rebuild Self Confidence and Self Esteem

Confidence & Self-Esteem Boost

Confidence and healthy self-esteem are natural expressions of who we are. As a survivor of sexual assault, it is very common to have no confidence and zero self-esteem. Sexual assault is actually a power grab by your perpetrator/s. When you feel powerless, your confidence tanks. Self-esteem is reclaimed when you realize that your power resides within and can never be lost. Affirmations bust through powerlessness to confidence and self-esteem.

Here are a few:

  • I am strong and powerful.

  • I honor myself.

  • I appreciate my strengths.

Cultivate Self-Love PTSD

Love Yourself – Raise Your Vibration

Love yourself by raising your vibration! Move into the vibration of love and away from the vibration of sexual abuse and trauma.

  • Sound is vibration: listen to uplifting and inspiring music or play an instrument.
  • Creating art-it is freeing to create without judgment.
  • Eat high vibrational foods: add a fruit or vegetable to your diet.
  • Connect with the earth: Walk on grass barefoot.
  • Step away from mass consciousness-turn off the TV or computer
  • LAUGH! If you can’t laugh at life, you’re taking it way too seriously!
  • Our thoughts affect our vibration-replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts.
Cultivate Inner Peace and a Sense of Self

Reclaim Your Sense of Self

Who am I? I am a spiritual being having a temporary physical experience. I am ancient, made of starlight-I am brilliant like the stars. The angels bow before me and serve me lovingly. I am sinless, guiltless, shameless… I am holy…whole and perfect in every way. I am connected to the entire universe. I am one with the infinite abundance of the universe. My natural experience of life is PLAY: Peace, Love, Light, Abundance, and joY. (From The Living Light Guidebook)

You’ve been told a lie…a very old lie.
