Hi, I’m Grace Porter, LMHC, LCPC. I am the co-founder of and an instructor with The 7 Tools of Healing. I am also a Psychotherapist, and Dr. Hall’s middle daughter. I know the power of The 7 Tools of Healing both from using them in my own life and from helping my students and clients integrate them into their lives. I know that they can be a path to reconnecting to your authentic self, to clearing away the limiting beliefs that keep you stuck, and to leading a life that feels pleasing to your mind, body, and soul.

Why I love The 7 Tools

Often, when I first meet people who are interested in learning The 7 Tools, they are feeling

  • stuck,
  • overwhelmed,
  • undeserving,
  • or worn out from trying to maintain something that isn’t working for them.

I love teaching The 7 Tools because as people integrate them into their lives I witness them

  • relaxing into themselves,
  • finding more gentleness in their lives,
  • tapping into deep reservoirs of courage,
  • and creating deep and lasting change in their lives (and so much more but I can only say so much here).

The words people use to talk about themselves and their experiences change. Suffice to say, I literally witness the change in their lives when they practice the Tools.

The 7 Tools and Me: A brief history

I have been hearing about The 7 Tools since childhood. I first took our Taming the Bear: Taking the Bite out of Stress class as a student in 2006 and I continue to practice them in my own life because, well, they work for me. Additionally, I have been using The 7 Tools in my psychotherapy practice since 2009 and have been formally teaching them since 2015.

The Nitty Gritty

As for other nitty gritty details about me, I have a Masters in Counseling, with an Emphasis in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, I am a Certified Advanced Facilitator of The Integrative Amrit Method of Yoga Nidra (a wonderful sleep based meditation technique), and most recently, I am a Level I Reiki Practitioner. I have an online private psychotherapy practice seeing residents of Washington and Maryland where I specialize in treating trauma, over givers, and people transitioning into adulthood. I love to garden and live in Olympia, Washington with my husband, 2 sons, chickens, sheep, and Woodji, the cat of all cats. If reading people's Masters Theses is your jam, you can check out mine here.
