My Approach to Helping

I believe everyone possesses an inherent healing mechanism, which is accessible when treated with dignity, provided with safety, along with a secure healing space. Seven years of practice in the field of mental and behavioral health has taught me that providing clients with authentic experiences promotes a sense of healing that can only come from genuine service oriented care.

I know that a commitment to researching novel mental health treatments that approach client care with intelligence are the antidote to many of the maladies seen today in the field of mental health. I believe in a multi-dimensional approach to healing, in order to promote longevity, health, and vitality.

Mental illnesses are currently at pandemic levels across the country. If we are to reduce these plagues, we must be committed to ameliorating suffering and reducing the prevalence of mental health disorders. Ultimately shifting our way of life into health and wellness, instead of disease and disconnection. Most of today’s mental health conditions are complex and therefore the road to wellness is paved with a recovery process of inclusion, community, family, spirituality, and the discovery of novel treatments allowing each person to find empowerment within their true inner self.

My Role as a Therapist

My work is to hold space for benevolent awareness. To cultivate the conditions for the heart and mind to open, allowing each person to access their inherent wisdom, which unveils the psychological, emotional, and spiritual blockages that become each person's individual work. The process leads to the discovery of the healing truth within, which is revealed in a precise manner that allows for an individual to experience self-reorganization, a greater sense of openness, and the restoration of vitality.
