Licensed Professional Counselor in San Antonio, TX
Contemplative therapy integrates Western psychology with Eastern psychology by using Buddhist tenants as foundational touchstones. We uphold the belief that all people are inherently good and have the capability for brilliant sanity-meaning that we all have natural wisdom within us which can be accessed to achieve healing and self-awareness. Mindfulness and meditation are encouraged with this modality.
This is a great modality for those of you who like skills! We learn skills in session, see where they might work in your life, and for homework you practice those skills. It is a great way to start with therapy if you are unsure of where to start.
I love using ACT because it focuses on you, where you are at now, while also working towards the future with small measurable steps. I enjoy using this modality because it fits in very well with how I work as a therapist.
I have worked at the Eating Recovery Center and also am currently in supervision to become a certified eating disorder specialist (CEDS). I enjoy working with Binge Eating, Body Image, Anorexia, Bulimia, ARFID, and disordered eating.
I have lost several very close family members in my life, including way too many pets, so I know firsthand how difficult grief and loss is. I also worked at a funeral home for over 6 years, am trained as a grief therapist, and also worked in hospice.
Life is full of transitions that can bring up tons of old wounds. Let's talk about it!
