Owner of Wellspring Therapeutic Services, LLC. Psychotherapist. Trauma therapist. Trauma-informed yoga instructor.
Licensed Professional Counselor in Philadelphia, PA
I offer space for mind-body-spirit healing utilizing trauma-informed yoga, and/or reiki into the talk therapy space at the client's request.
You lead the way. I will help, support, guide, and suggest, but you are the captain of this ship. If something doesn't feel right or seem right we shift and adjust until it does. I practice emotional consent in the same way one might understanding physical consent.
I am trauma-certified and have extensive training and experience working with trauma. I work with you at your own pace, getting to know what is coming up for you inside and using mind, heart, and body (intellect, emotion, and physical) to deeply process and work toward releasing the hold trauma manifestations have on your life.
Anxiety is often versions of our past selves trying to warn us of something that version thinks is dangerous. Sometimes we shame ourselves for struggling with those past messages because we have learned differently since that past version existed, yet we still feel the anxiety associated. I will work with you to meet those versions with love and compassion, listening and learning from your past self while also providing comfort that may have not been available the first time around.
I work with clients experiencing physical loss of a loved one or the pervasive grief when one realizes a relationship they hoped would meet their needs will never do so (parent, sibling, child, romantic, friend, etc). Loss shows up in many ways. Grief is the expression "I wish this wasn't happening".
I am trauma-certified and work with clients experiencing single event, multiple event, and ongoing complex trauma. I have worked with relationship, religious, attachment, as well as various other types of trauma.
