I have adopted a mind-body-spiritual focus in healing clients, while working on issues related to many facets of trauma, including sexual abuse, childhood neglect, bullying, car accidents, emotional abuse, death of a loved one, and PTSD. Phobias, anxiety disorders, depression, eating disorders and all other addictions often evolve in a person?s life because of these traumas. During our therapeutic relationship, I try to encourage each client to strive for balance among all aspects of their daily lives while focusing to heal themselves from within from past emotional and physical tragedies and rejections. Adults and adolescents with anxiety disorders, self-esteem struggles, self-harm, and trauma histories resulting in addictive behaviors are the primary focus of my professional experience. My goal is to assist clients in developing strong assertiveness skills and inner calm through self-empowerment often resulting in a stronger sense of self and the emerging of a unique identity. I focus on empowering individuals by assisting them with identifying appropriate ways to set boundaries and setting themselves free of co-dependent interactions within their relationships and daily lives. As a result, they can begin to create a healthy balance between their genuine needs and those of others.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I believe the approaches I have developed and adopted in my practice, help clients to desensitize the level of intensity, both emotionally and physically, so that they can break the re-experiencing of deep past internal pain, which further keeps the addictive cycles present in their lives. Using trauma and anxiety focused therapies, (EMDR, HMR (Holographic Memory Resolution), and Reiki energy healing), the need to self-soothe deep emotional pain through addictive behaviors is significantly decreased. My goal in therapy is to work in a client-centered approach allowing the client to guide the treatment at their own pace. In doing so, the opportunities for "re-experiencing" or "re-living" a traumatic event or painful memory is significantly reduced and most often avoided. Through the reframing and healing of buried memories often locked in the unconscious mind, clients can begin to release old negative energy from their mind, body and spirit.
