Are you using harmful behaviors or habits to deal with difficult emotions and situations? How would you describe your relationships, your mental health or overall wellbeing? When an individual begins to feel a sense of disconnection to self and others, they may begin to make fear based decisions, leading to consequences that can be difficult to manage. When we learn how to control impulsive reactions through mindfulness based practices, including meditation and breathwork, we enhance our brain and body's ability to make decisions that best meet our needs and goals.
I have experience in treating addiction and co-occurring disorders, with specialization in perinatal mental health. I offer diverse counseling options to equip clients with the necessary tools to identify and overcome addiction. My approach is grounded in recognizing and nurturing one's strengths, empowering clients to take an active role in their recovery.
By fostering a sense of self-care and compassion, I hope to facilitate transformative change in my clients' lives. We have a choice; to stay unconscious or get uncomfortable. Asking for help and telling your story takes courage, but by showing up for yourself you are trusting in your potential to heal.
