Hello and Welcome! I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Master Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor. In addition, I am also a Level III Shambhalla Reiki Master, a Shamanic Practitioner, Certfied Crysal Healer, Level 1 I.E.T Practitioner and have also been trained by Dr. Brian Weiss, MD in Past Life Regression Therapy and Ingrid Dinter in Emotion Freedom Technique (Tapping).
My job as your therapist and healer is to assist you to regain "balance" during life's challenges. Counseling can help sort through these struggles, and help you gain perspective so you can create a better future. I call myself a psycho-spiritual counselor as my style blends evidenced based practices along with a holistic approach integrating mind, body and spirit into treatment. Exploration of one's personal spiritual practice and other alternative healing methods in their treatment is also supported.
I work with individuals experiencing many diverse mental health problems including addiction, anxiety, depression, trauma, anger, relationship problems, divorce, stress and bipolar as well as many other issues. I utilize mindfulness, emotion regulation, identifying thinking and behavior patterns, and symptom relief using Dialectical and Cognitive Behavioral Therapies, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Transpersonal Psychology, Emotion Freedom Technique, Hypnosis, and Regression Therapy.
I can also assist you in achieving and maintaining sobriety in your recovery. I perform LADC/Substance Evaluations, follow-up treatment and am an Impaired Driver Service Provider and can offer counseling to help you get your drivers license back.
I was raised in a family that was always open to alternative healing belief systems, however, as a child through early adulthood I often refuted these ideas because they seemed too "out there." My mind was opened, 12 years ago, when I was faced with my own personal crisis and was willing to try anything to work through it. I found a wonderful "healer" who worked with me and I found refuge in reiki and shamanism (in addition to psychotherapy) as a way to heal myself. This work helped me to find much peace and enlightenment in my own life which I have continued to carry forward. Since then, I have taken many classes, increased my knowledge of alternative healing techniques and try to live a life full of compassion and empathy while also helping to educate others interested in learning. I look forward to sharing this knowledge to help you navigate your own path toward healing and wholeness!
My past work experience has been varied and come full circle over the last 25 years. You can download my resume (to the left) to review my life experience and see what I draw from and bring to my work.
