I specialize in anxiety, trauma, highly sensitive people, and intuitive eating. I'm a climate aware therapist and certified in EMDR.
Counselor in Boise, ID
I utilize EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) for trauma. EMDR is a highly effective modality for traumas, big and small.
I offer a calm environment in which we can explore ways to help you feel more grounded and secure so that anxiety no longer significantly impacts your life. I utilize tools like mindfulness, EMDR, and self-exploration to enhance your ability to feel calm throughout your life.
I provide an accepting ear to help you navigate life transitions, and ask intentional questions to help you align your life with your values and priorities as you move forward.
My primary approach to counseling is person-centered. I believe the relationship is the most important factor in successful counseling. I am genuine and down to earth, providing an unconditionally accepting atmosphere so you may explore your struggles.
I am trained to offer EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), a highly effective treatment for trauma, PTSD, and many other difficulties.
Nature is the most crucial element of my self-care, and I have walked beside many clients who have benefited from the integration of ecotherapy (or nature therapy) in our work. Sometimes this means meeting for a walk outside instead of in the office, or sometimes it means bringing elements of nature into the session.
I have experienced the power of mindfulness and greater presence both in my personal life and with many clients. I try to incorporate mindfulness in small, easy-to-integrate ways in my work with clients.
As an HSP myself, I love to help others discover the strengths of this trait as well as learn ways to support yourself in any situation so you remain integrated and calm. Many of my clients also identify as empaths, and we work to identify strategies to embrace your empathic abilities--without feeling drained.
I welcome conversations and feelings about climate change and environmental issues. I care deeply about these issues and appreciate the opportunity to walk along others who are wrestling with them, too.
