My therapeutic approach is different. As a licensed professional counselor candidate and a mind body practitioner, I value the strength of addressing the mind and body in healing. I offer individual counseling sessions to address depression, stress, anxiety, childhood trauma, and PTSD. My holistic approach to mental health combines traditional talk therapy with the revolutionary science of mind body awareness to give you an integrative approach that is tailored to your specific needs.
My therapeutic style is eclectic. I use a combination of biofeedback, cognitive behavior therapy, EMDR, emotion focused therapy, gestalt based therapy, and somatic therapy.
In my late 20's, after going to counselor after counselor trying to process a traumatic life event, I discovered that I needed more than just talk therapy. I could feel the stress in my body which presented as anxiety and depression. My mind was filled with racing thoughts. I was living in the past and uncertain about the future. I wanted to find a way to release the stress I was holding in my body. I sought out a different approach and finally found Body Talk. Through Body Talk I learned that we process emotions in our body like food. Some life events create an overflow of emotions that can't be processed immediately. Our body takes those emotions and stores them in our body causing physical symptoms. Body Talk allowed me to balance my body and mind. Releasing the stress I stored in my body and processing the emotional pain allowed me to truly heal.
After working with clients for many years, I decided to fully develop my therapeutic skills. I am currently under supervision for my license in professional counseling and I am accepting new clients. I look forward to accompanying you on a journey of transformation and healing
