My Approach to Helping
I assist the person, whether a child, or adult, to access and express the wisdom inherent in the heart. I support the exploration of thoughts and behaviors to increase the experience of joy and interpersonal satisfaction. My approach is centered in the knowing that each individual is striving to greater sense of empowerment and sense of personal success may it be I relationships, work, school. I offer a keen sense of perception and compassion, which supports clients effectively and safely access blockages that get in the way of experiencing exactly what they wish for. Somatic practices such as Somatic Experiencing, Guided Imagery, and Mindfulness are combined with other evidence based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
