My Approach to Helping

An integrative holistic therapist and lifehealth coach, I work from a humanistic-existential-spiritual perspective. Integrative mental health care makes use of all scientifically proven alternative methods in combination with conventional therapies to support healing and maintain optimal health. Interactions of mind and body are understood as central to the healing process and whole health. The focus is on powerful ways in which emotional, mental, social, and spiritual factors can directly affect one’s health. Emphasis is given to the sacredness of the therapeutic relationship, the power of the “healer within,” the healing capacity of a healthy mind, and the influence of lifestyle habits on mind-body health.

I apply a variety of approaches to whole person wellbeing strategies involving issues such as stress, pain, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, life and health crisis support, life transitions, and whole life balance.

I have long been passionate about living a healthy lifestyle and interested in alternative and complementary healing practices. My training in psychology, counseling, lifehealth coaching, and functional medicine enable me to share my passion and be of service to others. Specialties include: functional medicine, neurofeedback, yoga, Ayurveda, meditation reiki III, and ecstatic dance.

More Info About My Practice

I provide my clients with a very relaxed, casual and safe, laid back, down to earth environment where they can come share their concerns or just unload for a while to realign and rebalance themselves and to get back to a centered point in their lives where a healthy balance once again exists. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and the health and safety issues that have arisen I am currently offering TeleHealth sessions to offer private sessions from the comfort of your own home. I do Reiki at my business location or in special situations I can bring it to you or the medical facility that you or a loved one is residing in if it is authorized by medical personnel and staff on duty. The ecstatic dance can be done anywhere you have room to move and have a great time freeing your minds and bodies. I focus solely on making you feel comfortable back in "YOUR" own skin again. Unfortunately, unless it is for an event that cannot otherwise be postponed or cancelled the photography portion of our wellness center is temporarily closed unless prior appointments were already made in advance and arrangements have already been made.

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

I am skilled at working with a very diverse group of individuals from various populations but do have a Substance Abuse Specialization and am trained in educating people about holistic health by means of nutritional supplementation and I also educate individuals on the proper benefits and usage of medicinal marijuana if needed.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

? There is a time in therapy, especially at the beginning, when the therapist, from only their own philosophical lens, helps a client understand the workings of their mind (and, at least in eating disorders treatment, their body), educates on the allegedly normative path of human development, and identifies the patterns clients may have developed to survive traumas of all kinds.

Every therapist does this from their own unique brand of wisdom, developing tools and strategies they believe in both professionally and personally. So is therapy about making people be ?in line? with how the therapist sees things?

?Good therapy, to my way of thinking, always starts with creating a container. It is about building trust and safety, born from acceptance and ?unconditional positive regard.?

These are commodities many clients [do] not have in abundance. The purpose of this container is not to convert, but to create space for clients to risk finding their authentic Self.

To do that, sometimes clients need to use parts of someone safe to help build a bridge back to that Self. They can try on things I suggest with the goal [of] listening for their true response (?Did this work for me??), not practicing a lesson and ultimately passing some test.

?If clients say something because they think I want to hear it, we are not done with the work. If they say something because it is true for them, we have accomplished our mission.

?For those who have not participated in psychotherapy for fear they might lose their voice, I would invite them to challenge a prospective therapist with this very question. Their answer should in fact convince you that you will come away from the work not closer to being like them, but closer to being like you.
