Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist
Walla Walla WA
The foundation of my work with clients is the therapeutic relationship based on loving respect for the power and autonomy of the individual. Each client requires a slightly different approach, but the overall approach involves depth work with the subconscious, awareness of and restructuring perspective, and daily mindfulness practices that reinforce the entire process. Many sessions utilize non-ordinary states of consciousness achieved through the hypnotherapeutic process. The utilization of these states of consciousness allows access to, and the ability to change, subconscious beliefs that stand in the way of expansion and healing. The synthesis of depth work with mindful, somatically focused therapy creates lasting change with commitment and practice.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Advanced clinical hypnotherapist. My work with clients over the years has ranged from community mental health to wilderness based therapeutic expeditions. Currently in my private practice I work with individuals and couples to address trauma, depression, anxiety, and overall psycho-spiritual expansion. I have wondered and sought since a very young age, exploring many spiritual traditions and contemplative practices. This has been an exciting and difficult journey thus far. The experience and knowledge that I have gained through this seeking informs the foundation of my work with clients.
