Announcement icon During this time to stay safe and comfortable, I am also using video conferencing. I use the teletherapy platform on Psychology Today.
Blue Lotus Psychotherapy is not currently accepting new clients.
"Never too old, never too bad, never too late, never too sick to start from scratch once again". What I look for in any client is the willingness to participate in their sessions. If you are looking for ways to stop the negative self talk, finally deal with issues from the past, are experiencing increased symptoms due to PTSD or anxiety, fear and irrational thinking, we will work together to mend the darkness of the past and calm uncertainties of the future so that you can focus and live positively today.
I choose my therapeutic interventions on the needs of my clients. I offer a safe space where you can be yourself. I offer many different grounding and distressing techniques during sessions if things get too uncomfortable or too emotionally charged, such as Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) "tapping" and use a Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral approach.
I work from a person - centered perscpective and want to make my clients feel as comfortable as possible. I appreciate and understand the difficult nature of being trusted with your story and I give you my word that as your copilot through your journey you will accomplish whatever goals you set for yourself. Feel free to reach out for a free consultation.
