I have always had a passion to helping others. I was given the opportunity to work with young people and families who suffered from traumatic experiences and or negative thoughts that led to severe emotional and behavioral issues for them. I found my calling. For the next several years I pursued getting an education in professional counseling and a myriad of strategies and techniques to help others make successful changes to improve their lives.
What makes an experience traumatic for one person and not another is how the brain processes the event that occurred. Traumatic experiences, if not processed in a healthy, productive manner, can store themselves in your body and impact you emotionally AND physically. I use strategies and techniques such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), EMDR (Eye, movement, desensitization, reprocessing), DBT (Dialectal Behavior Therapy), Gestalt, Person Centered, Motivational Interviewing and Mindfulness to reduce symptoms and address the belief systems that may be at the root of your concerns.
If you are tired of feeling the way you feel or know that you are stuck and not living to your potential, connect with me. Let’s work together to create the spark and ignite the change for happier, healthier living.
