Do you feel like depression and anxiety are only getting harder to cope with as you get older? Do you feel stressed, overwhelmed, fatigued, and irritable on a regular basis? Do you keep yourself busy and distracted during the day only to feel the most anxiety, racing thoughts, and panic at night when you lie down? If so, I am here to help! I offer a variety of tools including self-regulation, meditation, mindfulness, CBT, belief systems analysis, strengths-based and solution-focused approaches. I have over 18 years of experience.

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

In our first session together we will start with brief introductions, we will go over the challenges you are facing, I will give recommendations, and if you would like to move forward with treatment- we can book another session together or you can self-book in the Grow Portal! ** I am licensed in 6 states and my schedule fills up very fast. I highly recommend booking 3 sessions in advance to stay at the treatment cadence you prefer**

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I utilize classical Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques and sprinkle in some somatic, solution-focused, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and strengths-based approaches as well. I tend to focus on self-regulation throughout treatment. The techniques of self-regulation alone can often resolve many issues people are facing at their core level simply by using these techniques daily. The techniques are very simple and need to be practiced daily to heal from trauma, anxiety, depression, worry, rumination, intrusive thoughts, PTSD symptoms, suicidal ideations, frustration, anger, and rage. IMPORTANT!! The videos I have attached below are on self-regulation. Even if I am not the right fit for you, maybe sharing this new skill can change your life or someone you care about profoundly. Tools for Hope (Part II): Self-Regulation (start here) Tools for Hope (Part I): Perceived Threat & The ANS

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

I am a good listener. I am empathetic and compassionate. My approach is honest and direct. I like to use a lot of visual resources (sent via email) so that members have resources to watch or listen to when they are having a hard day or just want to add more tools to their toolbelt. The majority of my clients are struggling with anxiety, panic attacks, anxiety attacks, grief, loss, depression, PTSD, perfectionism, procrastination, self-esteem, trauma, lack of motivation, not feeling good enough, fear of abandonment or rejection, avoidance of painful or uncomfortable emotions, gender identity, dysphoria, and sexual identity issues. For those members who are part of the ***LGBTQIA2S+ community, BIPOC, and the Pagan/ Magickal/ New Age/ Alternative Healer/ Spiritualist community this is a safe, accepting, and open space***
