"Owning our stories and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing we will ever do."
- Brene Brown
My Integrative Approach
My credentials as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and Reiki master allow me to nurture clients using an integrative approach focusing on the connection of mind, body, and spirit, as well as the individual as a whole. I use traditional therapy models such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) as well as meditative practices, breathing techniques, and imagery to help reduce emotional distress. When asked, I also believe that incorporating Reiki/energy work into our sessions is very beneficial.
My goal is to collaborate with you to create your ideal experience. Together we can work through the storms of life that cause emotional distress and create a world of possibility. We have all experienced grief, anxiety, anger, sadness, fatigue, and a variety of emotions during different times in our lives. Our trials and hardships are what shape us and the story of our lives. Despite the challenges that life brings we have the ability to soar above our greatest hurdles.
Each one of us is the author of our life, and we can fill the pages with anything and everything imaginable. In a safe, nurturing, nonjudgmental space, I will assist you in writing the story you desire. My goal is for you to feel respected and heard while we work through your process. I am continually amazed and inspired by people, and it is a privilege and blessing to work with individuals on their journey of healing. Despite the challenges life throws our way, I believe that we are all empowered beings who have the capacity to manifest our deepest dreams and desires.
