My Approach to Helping

I believe in the power of utilizing a biopsychosocial approach to healing in which the clients are met with a whole person approach. I tailor my treatment planning with this in mind. My style is a fusion of clinical evidence based models such as EMDR, CBT, and DBT with holistic skills such as clinical hypnotherapy, energy work, meditation, and expressive arts. I am highly trained in trauma and PTSD with a focus on childhood abuse andor neglect. I am also a military veteran with a a certification military counseling. If you continue to feel or stuck or struggle with childhood wounds, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, dissociation, I look forward to collaborating with you to live a live of clarity, joy and abundance in your mind, body and soul.
