Education & Speaking
My experience in mental health has allowed me to expand into teaching and training groups, organizations, and churches with the admirable goal of becoming educated on identifying, addressing, and preventing abuse and trauma within their systems. Through real life stories and concrete data and action steps, clients learn how to spot abuse, confront abuse, and prevent abuse to better protect and advocate for those in their care.
Warmest greetings to you, brave soul.
Since 1997, it has been my goal to make mental health beautiful and lasting. As the foundation of my work and advocacy as a psychotherapist, I believe therapy should be a courageous and delicate becoming. My experience in a variety of modalities supports your journey. Some of those modalities are:
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)
Emotionally Focused Therapy
Trauma Informed Care
Directional, Vocational, Relational Coaching
Along with these techniques, I believe physically safe spaces support the healing process. My office is intentionally designed so that you feel safe and supported as we cover difficult memories and topics. Weighted blankets, essential oils, snacks, beverages, various therapeutic sound options and tactile pulsers that offer bilateral stimulation, all help to immediately calm our psychological and physical systems. Providing information on topics like trauma bonds, parental enmeshment, along with my resiliency protocol I have established for those working through low self-esteem, low self-worth, trauma, anxiety and depression is another critical element in my client support.
Separately, I offer self-development assessments like the Enneagram and Myers Briggs to provide clarity as it's related to your natural motivational style, your values, and your priorities. This self-awareness helps my clients express themselves in an assertive, open-minded manner. As such, I can offer communication (speaking and listening) methods that are tailored to the type of relationship and/or situation you are navigating.
My aim with all my work is to help you re-establish what you were born with—a natural ability to trust your gut instinct, your inner counselor.
I would love to get to know you and get to know your story. Book a free consultation call to explore what our partnership would look like in your journey of healing.
