What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
In our first session we will introduce ourselves and then enter into a series of conversations about your life experiences and why you are seeking therapy.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
As a practitioner in mental health therapy, I employ a holistic approach focused on fostering self-awareness and promoting mindfulness. Within my role as a Holistic Spiritual Counselor, I guide individuals toward self-reflection and encourage the regular practice of mindfulness techniques. These methods serve as catalysts for cultivating a deeper understanding of oneself and one's place in the world. In my practice, I offer a range of practical tools meticulously crafted for spiritual development. These tools empower individuals to nurture their inner peace, discover personal meaning, and align with their innate potential. However, I emphasize individualization, recognizing that each client's journey toward well-being is unique. I actively support clients in identifying and adopting the tools and methods that resonate most with their specific needs and preferences. Furthermore, my approach integrates the principles of somatic abolitionism, which involves facilitating a connection between clients and all aspects of themselves. This approach seeks to address and heal past traumas while fostering a profound sense of wholeness and self-acceptance. My mental health therapy practice is grounded in holistic and client-centered methods. Through self-reflection, mindfulness, and personalized tools, I assist individuals in pursuing spiritual growth, inner peace, and realizing their full potential. Additionally, by embracing the principles of somatic abolitionism, I aim to support clients in their journey toward self-connection and healing.
