My ideal client values authenticity. By "authenticity," I mean you aim to live in the moment mindfully, being present in heart, mind, body, and spirit. I'm best suited to treating anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, and concerns about life purpose, including work and love. You're ready for positive change in your life, built on self-acceptance. You're ready to let counseling/psychotherapy transform your life. You're interested in becoming inspired, assertive, embodied and receptive in your life's various contexts. Being happy with yourself and others deeply matters to you. Phone me to schedule an appointment.
I call my work "Enlightened Care" because I aim to profoundly care, and I come to the process of caring from an awakened place. My care enables clients to access community and government resources, to enhance their personal and interpersonal development, and to engage in fulfilling relationships and invigorating work.
I offer a range of modalities of care: individual, couple's, & family counseling. I also offer body-centered therapy and energy healing. Each client receives the appropriate intervention for their moment to moment needs. My work is based on my belief that the healing process is at each moment unique.
