As a certified mindfulness instructor, I utilize mindfulness in all of my sessions to help clients more fully connect with the present moment, to develop self compassion, and create an internal container in which emotions can be explored and pain can be healed.
I utilize IFS to help quickly help create a safe space where internal dynamics and traumas can be explored and healed.
I have years of experience as an addiction counselor and am skilled at helping clients heal the underlying emotional pain and emptiness that fuels any addiction.
Spirituality is about experiencing our connection with ourselves, our community, and with the universe. This occurs in different ways for different people, and my role is to help you to more fully explore and make meaning around the spiritual connection that you experience and to help to remove blocks to finding your sense of purpose and fulfillment.
I treat addiction as a genuine but misguided attempt to manage the pain and chaos of one's internal world. I help my clients locate and heal the emotional pain which fuels any addiction.
Often when we have experiences that are frightening, harmful, dangerous or life threatening our nervous systems become overwhelmed and we are unable to fully process our experience. This results in the symptoms called PTSD and what is seen in the indigenous world as 'soul loss'. Treatment involves creating the space to lovingly reconnect with the disassociated energy stored in the body.
