Welcome

You have made the decision to begin a new journey in your healing process and that takes courage. I am here to guide you, to explore with you, and make yourself curious on the how’s. I am a resource for you. I am here to empower you to make better choices for you. I will prompt questions to help you process situations and experiences, in hope that one day you will use those tools to help yourself create more peace in your life.

How I work

I believe in a holistic approach. I will ask you about things that make you YOU, things that you enjoy and dislike, things that you put in your body (on mental, emotional, and physical levels). I am direct but respectful. I am compassionate but not enabling. I will give assignments, so expect to work on a few things between sessions.

“Progress not Perfection” is my personal motto.

SPOTLIGHT

I believe that people need a safe place to process and I have the capability to interact without judgement while they learn to accept themselves.

Acceptance. Acceptance of what was. Acceptance of the choices they made. Acceptance of the now. Acceptance that they only have control of themselves, their thoughts, and actions.

I have. I learned it is not selfish to prioritize myself. If I intend to take care of others, its important that my cup is full to be able to do so.
Their growth – to see someone make steps they didn’t know they could take.
I don’t have one. I am here to help and serve.
I love art, nature, and music. I will take the time to express myself through art, a run in the park, or music in my vehicle with the windows down.

Give an example of how you incorporate it in your sessions. At times, my clients are quick to run through the emotion and want to continue the session. I have asked them to slow down, listen to their body, and feel the emotion. Once clients can identify their own emotions, it is easier to identify the needs.

My grandfather (he passed), my sister, and a dear friend. They are important in my life and would love to see them interact.
