“I look for clients who are committed to their own self-healing work as it is a journey that takes place both in session and outside of session.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Initially, I began my path to becoming a therapist by studying native healing practices, martial arts, yoga, and meditation. Through this process, I understood the healing presence and the power that words have in releasing old stuck patterns and creating space for new life to emerge. After obtaining this knowledge, I became a psychotherapist and have worked in psychiatric hospitals, higher education, and now in my private practice. These vast experiences provided valuable insight into shaping my current clinical practice in an integrative way that embodies a whole person psychological approach to healing and transformation.
What should someone know about working with you?
My healing practice begins with a consultation to decide whether or not it makes therapeutic sense to work together. If it does, we move onto a holistic intake assessment and create a therapeutic plan for our work together. Typically, I work with individuals for at least a full year as I believe deep lasting change takes time. I look for clients who are committed to their own self-healing work as it is a journey that takes place both in session and outside of session.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
My core values shape my approach to therapy as I believe every person embodies the wisdom to heal and has the right to be free. My job is to guide the process of becoming unstuck in order to access this deep healing potential and create space for personal sovereignty to emerge. By processing deep pain and suffering, each person begins to make conscious choices and create a new life.
