My Approach to Helping
Everyone needs kindness and compassion when dealing with loss, trauma, failure, and disappointment. With mindfulness and somatic approaches, you can begin to naturally heal in the present moment, achieve insights and wisdom, let go of emotional and physical pain, and feel peace. I can provide guidance and support as you go through career and life transitions. And we can work to build resilience and resolve challenges with a greater sense of hope and meaning.
I am a licensed professional counselor and a certified health coach. I also have been a singer, songwriter, ESL teacher, Spanish tutor, and writer, a diversity that is reflected in my open approach to working with people. I offer innovative mind-body therapies like Accelerated Resolution Therapy, Brainspotting, Ericksonian Hypnosis, and Somatic Experiencing.
I have over fifteen years of experience with employability assessment, academic advising, career counseling, and personal counseling. Areas of interest include expressive arts, health and wellness, cultural adjustment, career and life transitions, and loss and trauma.
