I am an LMFT specializing in the practice of mindfulness and presence. I believe people possess all they need and are inherently whole, but that life experiences, habitual thought patterns, and negative underlying beliefs cloud awareness and block connection to the deep peace and stillness within each of us. When we identify with the world of form-the form of thought, emotion, or material items-we suffer, because all forms are impermanent and then our sense of identity feels constantly threatened. My desire is to facilitate felt experiences of peace, so people are able to accept any moment with deep compassion and understanding.
In 2016, I began researching and training in the areas of ancient indigenous and philosophical traditions, shamanic arts, and esoteric and energy healing practices. I am a certified Reiki Master, a certified EFT practitioner, and have attended numerous retreats and workshops on shamanic practices, energy healing, and body work. This research pulled me deeper into my own healing journey that included plant medicine, integration, waking meditation, and compassionate holding of trauma so that it could be transmuted.
How I work with clients
I utilize the teachings of Eckhart Tolle, Thich Nhat Hanh, and other spiritual masters to provide a space of conscious awareness and support people in utilizing the power of the now. I prefer modalities of meditation, art, tarot, play, and energy work as the vehicles to enhance mindfulness & presence. Within this space, insight arises, and healing blossoms.
I act as a guide on a journey deep into your true Self. Even in this moment of possible pain and confusion, you are complete, and my goal is to help you feel this truth. When there is an aware connection to the place of stillness within you, right action and needed changes occur with ease. There is unbelievable healing in surrender, in a practice of being.
My approach provides nurturing support and practical feedback to individuals to help them effectively address life challenges. By incorporating change into clients’ existing lifestyles, I help to manage stress, navigate deep self-exploration, find increased meaning in life, and break free of emotional patterns that prevent people from achieving their goals. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each person.
With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to pursuing. Clients will discover ways to nourish their minds, bodies, and spirits, find balance in themselves and in life, and foster greater self-love.
