My Approach to Helping
As a psychospiritual therapist, I approach clients in a holistic manner that incorporates the psychological, emotional, cognitive, physical, interpersonal, cultural, and spiritual aspects of their lives. I work with individuals, couples, and families to promote self-understanding, behavioral changes, and deepened intimacy, so as to bring their lives into better balance and harmony. I integrate techniques from various therapeutic modalities that are efficient and designed for the specific needs of my clients. I use whole brain techniques to more quickly and efficiently re-program self-sabotaging beliefs that are contained in our subconscious minds. Homework assignments are often made to support our in-session work and to assist in faster goal accomplishment. PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND: I hold clinical degrees in social work and psychology from the University of Denver, and a Certificate in Pastoral Ministry in Spiritual Direction from St. Thomas Seminary. I am a graduate of the three year Master'sClass in Encounter-centered Relational Healing, a certified Imago Relationship Therapist, am fully trained as a Relational Empowerment Therapist with Terry Real's Relational Life Institute, and use the Prepare/Enrich program for pre-marital counseling. Additionally, I am certified in EMDR and am a trained PSYCH-K Facilitator. With my husband and colleague, Mike Misgen, I facilitate the "Magic of Connection" workshops for couples through our Denver Center for Relational Healing.
