A Different Approach! Traditional methods of treatment join together with Holistic (Alternative) practices. My approach is down-to-earth, accessible and welcomes all people of every belief system and/or faith. Talk therapy, CBT, psycho-dynamic work and more blend with Energy Psychology, Tarot Psychology, Meditation and more to create a balancing of Mind, Body, Emotion and Spirit so that you can continue to heal yourself even when you are not in session. This approach is perfect for people with any type or level of spiritual practice, whether they believe in the Divine or just feel drawn to Nature or energy work.
I have 25 years of experience in mental health including inpatient, outpatient, Addictions, Corrections, and Hospice. I have studied alternative practices including Pranic Healing, Tarot, Meditation and Spiritual Science for over 15 years. I am currently working to obtain my Certification in Tarot. My specialties include Anxiety, Panic, Depression and HSP.
I am excited to offer something different for those who resonate with combining the traditional with the alternative. In the past, I struggled with severe anxiety and depression myself before I discovered the power of Meditation and alternative practices to create lasting wellness. If this approach appeals to you, please reach out and learn more!
