MY APPROACH

 

           To seek out healing takes an act of courage and trust. I honor the journey that has lead you to this point. Our souls are seeking wholeness, this is my own work, as well as what I strive to empower each client to work toward. I approach the therapeutic relationship with curiosity and as an equal in the healing journey.

            My primary focus is to guide individuals towards a greater sense of freedom through the awareness of one’s emotional and behavioral patterns which is accessed through mind/body/soul connection and to heal the wounds that have accumulated throughout our lives.

 

           I consider one’s own unique spirituality to be at the heart of what brings us greater freedom in every aspect of our lives.  As a result I use a number of different techniques to help you discover the best path forward.

            I have been trained in Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy and recently received a Certificate in Advanced Hypnotherapy.

            I use the model of DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) to increase practical application of one’s own wisdom in the here and now.

 

            I teach the EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique which is based on acupuncture and can assist in the relief of symptoms in minutes.

 

            Although I received my formal education through Christian universities, my studies have also included esoteric or hidden spiritual wisdom including training in Counseling Astrology with the goal of providing a deeper understanding of one’s own self or a “soul map”.

 

MY BACKGROUND

 

            I have been practicing since graduating with my Masters in Counseling in 2007. Through my experience working with a wide range of individuals and their unique challenges, I have learned how much of the symptoms associated with their diagnoses seemed to be rooted in traumatic experiences. 

             I come from a trauma lens of mental illness and believe that we are willing and able to treat the root trauma these diagnoses and symptoms begin to reduce in intensity and can disappear altogether.

I focus on the following areas:

​​

Individuals

Couples

Young Adults

Trauma

Depression

Anxiety

Women

Spirituality

Anger

Codependency

Relationship Issues
