Psychotherapy for individuals, couples, families, tweens, and teens
Suffering and pain are part of the human experience and can teach us many lessons, but they also can get in our way sometimes, and the result of this roadblock can be anything from brief anxiety to long-term struggles with our minds, bodies, and our spirits. My role is to offer insight and tools to help you remove your own roadblocks. I believe in collaborative work: The relationship you and I build will be our biggest ally in developing new, more workable ways of experiencing a rich, meaningful life.
I mainly use an Acceptance and Commitment framework, a therapy that asks us to step back from our experiencing, observe, and practice making valuable decisions. I've found this work to have benefited me on my own journey, and I'd like to share what I've learned with you.
We'll be integrating ideas from mindfulness, yoga, holistic wellness, and alternative medicine, in addition to more traditional talk therapy. My practice is LGBTQ+ affirming. I work both out of an office and do home visits. I also do Reiki energy healing.
Reiki is an energy healing technique that can help relieve or reduce anxiety, pain, or discomfort by balancing the body’s energy centers, more commonly known as chi.
Reiki promotes relaxation and healing by removing blocks to the flow of chi in your body and facilitates balance and support on all levels.
Practitioners place their hands in various positions on or above the client, and act as a channel for the Reiki to move through, clearing and enhancing the energy throughout the client’s body per whatever the receiver needs.
Due to its nature, Reiki has no negative physical health benefits, only helpful. Survivors of trauma and/or repressed emotions and/or memories may experience minor mental discomfort as clogged energy loosens and clears.
Great for: Chronic pain Anxiety and depression Addiction/cravings Excellent in conjunction with other methods of healing, including therapy
