My Approach to Helping
It is not easy to find a therapist that is the “right fit” for you. However, you have taken the first step in such an incredibly rewarding process of self-care and love, and, for that, you should be proud! I understand the importance of utilizing techniques, skills, and psychoeducation that can combat negative beliefs and behaviors. I can assist clients in understanding where those thoughts and beliefs stem from, how to process them, grow in self-love, and heal in a safe, compassionate environment.
Therapeutic interventions include holistic approaches to mind-body healing from trauma, stress, anxiety, and depression. By combining elements from neurobiological practices, people increase their ability to grow from their experiences and re-wire the hurt brain. Trauma, of any kind, reprograms people’s brains into negative thought patterns and beliefs. It also can affect a person’s behaviors and emotional state. By using talk therapy (counseling) and holistic mind-body connective techniques, people can combat those maladaptive patterns and re-create healthful communication with themselves and others.
I have been on my healing journey for over a decade and as part of my journey, I have been called to serve others. Whether it be through teaching, the healthcare industry, Reiki, and finally counseling, I have dedicated my life to being a support to people. With a dual master’s in marriage and family counseling and professional counseling, a professional trauma certification (CPT), and a brainspotting practitioner, I have a wealth of knowledge in techniques and theories that can best fit my clients’ needs.
It is because of my passion for helping and understanding how important it is to have a strong support system that allows me to encourage and assist my clients on their healing journeys.
