With over 17 years of experience, my practice is a unique blend of evidence-based therapies and holistic mind-body-spiritual approaches. I am trained in Attachment Theory, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Compassion Focused Therapy, and Hakomi Mindfulness. This comprehensive training allows me to offer a multifaceted approach to emotional wellness, integrating the scientific rigor of clinical psychology with the depth of spiritual and holistic practices.
My approach is deeply rooted in understanding the interconnectedness of the mind, body, and spirit. By working with clients to identify and shift limiting core beliefs and dysfunctional patterns, I aim to foster a journey of healing and self-discovery. This journey is not just about mental health; it encompasses the whole being, acknowledging how our thoughts, emotions, physical sensations, and spiritual beliefs are intricately linked.
My primary focus areas include enhancing self-esteem, managing stress and anxiety, navigating through grief and loss, addressing relationship challenges, and healing unresolved trauma. I utilize a range of therapeutic techniques to help clients transform painful behaviors and thought patterns into opportunities for growth and self-compassion. This process involves teaching practical tools and skills, such as mindfulness practices and cognitive restructuring, which clients can use to cultivate more loving relationships and greater self-acceptance.
In addition to my clinical training, my background in holistic nutrition, meditation, and somatic-based therapies contributes to a comprehensive understanding of wellness. This holistic perspective recognizes the importance of addressing emotional issues not just through talk therapy, but also by considering the physical and spiritual dimensions of health.
My commitment to blending evidence-based therapy with a holistic approach is reflected in my continuous education and practice. This includes my Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University, certifications in various therapeutic modalities, and a deep personal dedication to the sacred path of healing and growth. I believe in the transformative power of therapy that honors the entire human experience – mind, body, and spirit – and am dedicated to guiding clients on their path to holistic well-being.
