My Approach to Helping
Therapy is based on the premise that everyone has the innate capacity to heal. It is my role to be a guide, and to support and encourage healing. I have been trained in a multitude of supportive modalities and consider myself to be quite adept at utilizing both traditional and alternative practices. I have worked with difficult and deep seeded issues and consider myself highly effective in working with most issues including substance abuse, thought, emotional and behavioral addictions, and pain. The techniques I utilize are evidenced based, well researched as efficient and effective at supporting healing, and are nonpathologizing. These techniques include cognitive behavioral/restructuring, and solution focused therapy. I integrate with somatic techniques including body centered techniques, breathwork, mindfulness and energetic hypnotherapy. Worth noting is that I completed an extensive 3 year post graduate training program studying energetic processes including breath work and hypnotherapy through the Wellness Institute in Issaquah, Washington.
I offer over 15 years of experience and tailor treatment plans to meet the needs of the individual. I support moving through maladaptive beliefs and letting go of emotional and behavioral patterns that no longer serve you so that you can become more masterful at creating meaningful and joyous experience.
