I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor who enjoys helping others on their path toward wellness. I treat adults holistically and work with adults who suffer from a variety of problems including depression, anxiety, abuse, trauma, and relationship issues. In addition to traditional counseling methods such as cognitive behavior therapy and humanistic therapy, I use Brainspotting, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (a somatic therapy), mindfulness based practices, yoga techniques, and hypnosis. I have completed the Subtle Yoga teacher training that focuses on using yoga to improve emotional well-being. I also include mindful practices such as meditation and QiGong.
I then retrained, getting a masters degree in counseling, and am so much happier. Having the courage and support to make a mid-life career change has taught me a lot about recrafting a life when it isn't working well. I spend a lot of time keeping current in counseling, reflecting on my skills. and learning great new stuff.
