My Approach to Helping
Learning is the brain's super power. As a counselor I help clients learn how to manage life's ups and downs in new ways. I emphasize education, empathetic listening and providing clients the tools they need to change unhelpful thoughts and habits and use their brain's superpower to create happier, healthier and more resilient lives.
As a wellness specialist with an understanding of how food and eating affect the brain, I can also help clients learn and adopt simple and effective food, eating and wellness habits that can dramatically improve their moods and stress-levels. Combining evidence-based counseling strategies with improved food and eating wellness can dramatically enhance healing from mental health challenges, disordered eating, substance use disorders and other addictive behaviors.
In addition to counseling, my organization offers a variety of classes for those interested in mental health, addiction or wellness topics. We also offer on-site workshops for business, government and community organizations.
