About My Clients
I support Teens, College Students, & Young Adults who are struggling with the stressors & anxieties of school, friends, families, parent's divorce, & the ups & downs of life. Aside from working with the younger population, I also help Parents & Adults work with triggers. This process helps to reduce overwhelm & stress, and releases negative thought patterns and limiting beliefs that keep one from moving forward. I also work with clients who are ready to shift from burnout to bliss in business.
My Background and Approach
I support & help my counseling clients find the tools that work best for them as they identify their own sense of self, discover their own personal coping skills & learn new ways to express their emotions in a safe & healthy way. As a Somatic-Based Master Jungian Life Coach, I work with my coaching clients using a powerful blend of integrative techniques such as: Coaching, Trauma-Informed Breathwork, Shadow Work, TRE, & Social Neuroscience. I received my Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology from Lewis & Clark Graduate School. I specialized in children, adolescents & adults using a variety of individual & group counseling modalities. My experience has been working with clients who have witnessed and/or experienced divorce, trauma, grief/loss, anxiety/depression, life transitions, self-esteem & self-worth issues. I have also worked with children & teens in shelter & residential treatment facilities, who were experiencing serious to severe emotional & behavioral difficulties.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I strongly believe in reducing the stigma around mental illness within the child, teen and young adult populations. So many of the young people in our communities are struggling with the stressors and high expectations of school, sports, college, their futures, etc. These high expectations and stressors can then lead to anxiety and depression, as well as dysregulated and disconnected relationships with families and peers. My passion is to help our young population navigate through their challenges and come out the other side with a strong sense of self worth, knowing they are able to get through the ups and downs they are experiencing as they put into practice the coping skills they have gained. A bit about me...I love spontaneous adventures & explorations with my family & friends, along with taking time out of life's daily responsibilities every so often to enjoy a mental health day together. Being a boy mom feeds & nourishes my soul as we navigate through this world together.
