My Story

Image of Monica Ehmann

Texas born & raised, I've made Montana my home for the past 15 years with my husband who is from Montana.


We met in the Navy where we both served on board the USS Nimitz.  We married in 2002 while I was in Nursing school and in 2008 we moved to the family ranch here in Montana where we are raising our two boys.


In 2016 my husband was tragically injured while working on the ranch and is now a quadriplegic. He spent 8 months in a hospital in Colorado before he was able to come back home. This changed our world dramatically.

Then in 2019, I was diagnosed with breast cancer.  I fought that battle in the height of COVID. 


With so much trauma in such a short time in life, compounded by a fairly traumatic childhood, my balance of emotions was a terrible mess. My whole world was crumbling. I battled depression and anxiety. 

One day I decided that I no longer wanted to feel this way.  How could I be the mom my boys deserve, the wife my husband deserves, or the employee my job deserves? 

I made a decision then that I would not let this trauma tear me down.  I had been an RN for almost 20 years and watched the healthcare industry change.  It was so difficult to help patients with all the red tape.  I knew that my heart was still being pulled in the direction to help others, but I no longer felt fulfilled in my line of work.  


That’s where I found hypnotherapy.  It was the answer to all of the chaos that was happening around me.  It brought me back so I could be the mom, wife, and employee I wanted to be. I’m still a work in progress, but I am so much better because of hypnotherapy.

The Dandelion

The Dandelion represents perseverance, endurance and determination; it is a symbol of overcoming all the difficult challenges that life throws our way.


Dandelions are adaptable and resilient. They are often surprisingly resistant to many herbicides. Whether it's a lush or hostile soil environment, these prolific and durable little plants find a way to flourish almost anywhere, spreading all over the world, growing anywhere there is a pinch of soil!

Pain is a vicious cycle that includes depression, anxiety and inability to sleep.  Breaking one of these chains by teaching you how to relax and calm your mind will help you better deal with chronic pain.  Many times pain can be traced back to trauma from your past.  By utilizing IFS focused methods, you can begin to heal past traumas and in turn healing your chronic pain.

Performance Enhancement

Sand Tray Therapy

Sand tray therapy, or sandplay therapy, is a therapeutic approach used for people who have experienced a traumatic event such as abuse or a catastrophic incident. Although this type of therapy is used most often with children, sandplay therapy also can be helpful for teens and adults.

Internal Family Systems (IFS)
Informed Therapy

Internal Family Systems, also known as Parts Therapy, is a powerfully transformative, evidence-based model of psychotherapy. We believe the mind is naturally multiple and that is a good thing.  Our inner parts contain valuable qualities and our core Self knows how to heal, allowing us to become integrated and whole. In IFS all parts are welcome.

Field of Dandelions

"The best way I can describe my time with Monica is like grains of sand on a beach. They've accumulated over the years and alone are light, but together they become heavy. Time with Monica is like the ocean, you can feel the immensity and each session is like a wave, washing away grains of past traumas. Once washed away and let go, they're gone, revealing new life and new beginnings underneath. Each time I leave I feel a little lighter and freer. I will always be grateful for my time and can’t wait to see what the future holds.
