Illuminate Wellness, LCSW-C, LICSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Frederick
As a therapist for 16 years I have a great deal of experience assisting clients and couples in meeting their goals. I will work with you to determine the areas in which you are struggling and help you to develop strategies to make the necessary changes. Whether you are dealing with relationship struggles, anxiety, depressed feelings or past trauma I will assist you with moving beyond these difficulties.My approach to therapy is a holistic approach. I will work with you to heal mind, body & spirit.
After treating clients for over 10 years I found there was something missing. Many clients remained "stuck" and often struggled to find the relief they were seeking. I went through yoga teacher training and trained as a yoga therapist. I use this experience to inform my treatment and help you begin to live more joyfully.
I'll work with you to help you connect with past hurts and trauma through mindfulness techniques and body awareness. This combination will allow you develop greater awareness for how you are showing up in the world and how to change what you do not like about your current circumstances.
