"Awakened Transformation Using Energy Psychology"- I am thrilled to provide an alternative approach to the traditional route of therapy! Many of my clients are those who do not want to be put on medication, if they can avoid doing so, as well as wanting to get to the root of their issues rather than putting a band-aid on symptoms. People want to understand WHY. Using mind-body-spirit approaches to the healing journey, I investigate your symptoms using holistic tools & assessment, conversation, and teaching you how to listen to your intuition. Your body is speaking to you, and I will help you learn how to work with it to feel better!

I wholeheartedly believe there is an internal wisdom within us that we all possess: an inherent goodness and love. Life experiences of all kinds have the potential to violate and block us from our connection to ourselves and others, disrupting our relationships, our creativity, our sense of identity, our ability to regulate ourselves, and our connection to purpose and meaning in our lives.

If asked to share the most valuable lesson learned from my 20 years of social work practice my answer would be that the person seeking treatment is far more than a list of symptoms. I continue to draw inspiration from the courage and resiliency of my clients and stand firm in the conviction that with treatment and support we all possess the capacity for healing and emotional health. I am a Certified Trauma Therapist through the ITR Training Institute in Morgantown, WV where I received advanced training in the Instinctual Trauma Response (ITR) model developed by renowned clinicians, Drs. Louis Tinnin and Linda Gantt.

We often get stuck in maladaptive beliefs and patterns of behavior that once helped us cope with shame, fear or anxiety. They get in our way of feeling balance and a sense of well-being in our lives. The more we can develop insight into the source of these issues and break them down into manageable pieces, the more rewarding our relationships, work and free time will become. We all have the capacity to make positive changes that improve the quality of our lives. It is a sign of strength and resilience to reach out for help.

Emotional distress comes in many forms. We may feel a nagging unhappiness -- a sense that our lives have become inauthentic, or have gotten off-track. We may feel held back or overwhelmed by anxiety or depression, or perhaps we’re struggling to re-start our lives in the aftermath of trauma. Sometimes it’s the relationships in our lives that leave us conflicted or confused. At times pain can be a catalyst for growth. But if it goes on too long, it can end up preventing us from living fulfilling lives. That’s where I come in.

Most of us want the same thing. We want to feel reasonably happy and at peace on a daily basis. Content. It is our individual paths and our own often complicated personal histories that make happiness so uniquely difficult to achieve, sometimes. It is the creative work of therapy to support a person's capacity to access the very best part of her or himself. Once this occurs, people, essentially, heal themselves.

As inherently social beings, I believe that we learn to love and accept ourselves, gain self awareness, and form a strong self-concept through our connections with others. As such, I consider the psychotherapeutic relationship and process to be of vital importance in working through any barrier that holds us back from enjoying a meaningful and fulfilling life. True healing happens in connection with others through trust, vulnerability and being seen and accepted for who we are at our core. It’s not about changing who we are but about learning how to use our inherent strengths to care for ourselves and reach our full potential.
