CLINICAL MENTAL HEALTH COUNSELOR
CERTIFIED LIFE COACH
My passion for guiding clients thru life's personal and professional challenges stems from 20+ years as a transpersonal counselor, clinical mental health counselor, certified life coach, professional astrologer, and certified hypnotherapist. As an empath I naturally connect with people and somehow am able to tune-in to their needs. My approach to counseling and coaching involves using my professional knowledge and personal empathic experiences to help determine the most effective interventions for your needs.
Life is an amazing journey! At times we experience joy, happiness, and contentment. Other times, we wonder about our purpose in life or which direction we should head. From time to time the peace in our hearts and clarity of mind may seem to be just beyond our grasp. We may find a longing for self-improvement. Maintaining healthy fulfilling relationships may becoming increasingly challenging. Life may seem daunting and overwhelming. Ridding ourselves of unwanted habits may be more difficult to accomplish than we anticipated. Or maybe we just want to become more confident, reduce anxiety, manage stress, and rid ourselves of depressive moods.
Life can be unpredictable!
With personalized treatment you can learn positive coping skills and techniques to think and feel better. By enhancing mind-body coherence you will develop a new relationship with yourself ultimately becoming a catalyst for regaining emotional and mental wellness,
My goal is to provide a safe and confidential space for clients (8+) to explore self-actualization using talk therapy, counseling, coaching, and various activities to reinforce wellness. with the use of MBCT (mindfulness-based cognitive therapy), REBT (rational emotive behavioral therapy), EXT (existential therapy) and various life coaching methodologies clients learn to achieve calm, harmonize life experiences, and use positive coping skills to achieve goals, discover blocks to success, discover life purpose, and accomplish personal and professional changes.
Sessions include personalized strategies and therapeutic interventions such as meditation, stress reduction, mind-body coherence, reframing negative thoughts, maximizing strengths and recreating self-negating narratives all of which can be helpful for managing ADHD and other behaviors such as impulsivity, stress eating, and smoking.
At times, I also incorporate a transpersonal existential approach such as hypnosis, holistic energy work, ritual work, shamanic healing, dreamwork, hypnosis, life regression, and natal astrology. Clients often find these additional interventions helpful and enjoyable. Working collectively we can determine overall goals for treatment. Furthermore, determining the most effective intervention plan allows me to monitor and align strategies regularly as well as provide guidance, encouragement, and specific activities to use between sessions, helpful for correcting unwanted thoughts, behaviors, and habits.
I genuinely believe every person has the ability to make changes to improve themselves and their quality of life. As a life long learner I was inspired to obtained a Doctorate of Holistic Theology and Spirituality, a Master of Science of Clinical Mental Health Care, a Master of Education of Curriculum and Instruction, and Professional Life Coaching Certifications in hopes of inspiring you to take the steps necessary to achieve your goals and live a life filled with wellness and happiness.
