My Approach to Helping

You've lost your sense of joy and purpose in life but you're looking for something a little more unconventional. You're tired of pills being thrown at you in hopes that the problem will just go away and you'd prefer a more natural approach to your mental health.

You used to be more motivated, happy, and hopeful about the future but your normal way of doing things just isn't working. You're ready to put in the hard work and get to the root cause of your issues and release the negative energy that is holding you back from living your most authentic life.

You Might be Feeling:

Uncertain and/or scared about the future

Less interested in the things that once brought you joy

Isolated from important relationships

Disconnected and always "in your head"

We'll Help You Feel:

Confident in handling the uncertainties of life

A renewed sense of joy in the things you love most

Happily engaged in your important relationships

More emotionally balanced in mind, body, and spirit

More Info About My Practice

Blue Sage Counseling and Wellness is NOT your typical mental health practice! BSCW focuses on treating the whole person as it is our fundamental belief that mind, body, and spirit are harmoniously interconnected.

Techniques such as mindfulness, meditation, cognitive behavioral therapy, EMDR, and other non-medicinal techniques are used to go deeper than typical talk therapy. We have found that it is through this secret formula that clients are left feeling more balanced and connected to their true nature perhaps more than they ever were!

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

As a fellow sufferer of depression and anxiety, I know how devastating these feelings can be and just how much they can take. I've been on several medications to control these feelings and was morbidly obese at a young age. However, I learned the importance of never giving up.

Before, I would rather take on the pain myself than allow another to hurt. However, I learned the importance of putting myself first then those around me. I learned the tools that it took to get the joy and purpose back in my life and I learned that it couldn't be done alone.

With nearly a decade of experience, I have learned that the formula to getting healthy can be really quite simple; however, it is certainly not easy. Achieving and maintaining health is rarely due to lack of trying but rather knowing the right things to do that really help.

It's time for you to learn what to do to get the joy and purpose back in your life.
