I believe people CAN change! We are not leopards, we CAN change our spots! We just need a little encouragement, belief, & guidance, to help remind us of our true thrive, love, and live. Take action, and Decide me or another counselor :) A few reasons to schedule an appointment might be...Couples conflict-same arguments over & over, Addiction to cell, social media, Alcohol/drugs, Codependency, Insomnia, Anxiety, Chronic Worry, Anger, Grief, and Depression. Specializing in: Mindfulness-Cognitive Psychotherapy, Buddhist Psychology, Mindfulness techniques, Meditation, Spiritual-Psychotherapy, CBT, a sense of humor. Thoughts & emotions create out life, what do have going on...satisfaction or misery...It is sooo liberating to learn how to regulate, manage & change them :-)

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session we discuss exactly what happened that made them decide to call/text for an appointment. I create a homework that immediately addresses the issues, that will only take 3-10 minutes, recommend appropriate books, podcast, video etc.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I lean toward using Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (MBCT), meditations that I create specific to a clients particular challenges, the same with visualizations, Buddhist Psychology, Byron Katie techniques (helping people become less codependent and more self empowered), Spiritual psychotherapy, Tapping, humor is a big part to help a person change a perspective, Healing energies with mediations/visualization, healthy diet, exercise & yoga, connecting with nature and I give homework/statements said in each session that resinate with client to take home, read over daily.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My niche is working with people that are "ready" for a change, a shift, in the way they are managing and seeing people, events, experiences and past trauma...move to PostPTSD-Growth. I am an ACTION therapist, if nothing changes, then nothing will change. With only a few minutes a day, YOU CAN change a belief, a habit, a perspective.
