Christine BatesLicensed Professional Counselor, LPC/MHSP, BC-TMH
You'll have the benefit of my rather extensive training and experience both professionally and personally. In the counselor role, I have helped thousands of clients through the use of a variety of experiential tools such as Brainspotting, psychodrama, and Internal Family Systems therapy, along with education on resources. In my life outside the therapy room, I benefit from a deep practice of mindfulness tools and perspectives, and help others in the role of meditation teacher, which is sometimes useful in therapy as well. Whether or not you are interested in meditation, though, you can learn to increase mindfulness of what's going on in you and outside of you. Maybe for you it's about returning to a creative pursuit you've neglected or spending time in nature. But first, you need to free up the energy that has been tied up in survival mode, so that energy is available to you for other things you care about. Freeing up that energy is a big part of what I can help you do.
