Specializing in intuitive therapy allows for a powerful deepening of the therapeutic process. Through the Healing Therapies practice, I offer the support and treatment needed to empower clients to move through challenges with a greater sense of peace, balance and confidence.
Areas of specialty include postpartum depression, parenting challenges & techniques, body image development/disturbances and grief & loss. Counseling issues also frequently treated include depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship struggles, compromised self-esteem, coping with life's transitions; the ultimate goal of all being an increase in joyful & purposeful living.
When one is willing to seek encouragement, challenging times become opportunities for healing and transformation. When appropriate and desired by the client, I may incorporate expressive arts (journaling, fine arts) & energy therapies (acupressure, breath work, body work) into traditional psychotherapy to more rapidly facilitate emotional healing, assisting clients in living the lives they most want.
