Get started today
Many times throughout life, we face challenges of one sort or another. Some of these challenges may cause discomfort and others may be severely traumatic. Regardless of the severity, counseling can be beneficial. I believe that we are holistic beings, in that we are mind, body and spirit. When you are experiencing imbalance in any of these areas, it can cause major issues in your life. These issues can manifest in many ways, including feelings of depression, anxiety or even anger. Fortunately there are natural ways to alleviate symptoms and work toward reestablishing balance. I use an integrative approach to therapy that includes Positive Psychology, Mindfulness to treat symptoms of Anxiety and Depression, Stress Reduction/Management, Anger management as well as learning to identify, create and maintain healthy relationships. I also believe that one of the most important aspects of effective counseling is developing a positive therapeutic relationship, based on empathy and respect. I look forward to learning your story and working with you to reestablish balance in your life.
In addition to clinical therapy, I also offer Reiki healing. Reiki uses energy to help balance the mind and body through light-touch or no-touch treatments. There are many benefits to receiving Reiki treatments, such as stress reduction and relaxation, which can activate the body’s natural healing abilities. While receiving regular Reiki treatments can have long-term positive effects on your health, even receiving one Reiki treatment can be beneficial. Reiki has no known contraindications and can be used concurrently with any medical intervention.
