Using a warm, present and intuitive style, I trust your inner knowing within your process of unfolding and moving through the changes, challenge or transformations you may be experiencing in mind, body and spirit. I am a reflective, compassionate witness and facilitator to that process. I offer a safe space for your transformation.
My approach is holistic and integrative, with special interest in body oriented awareness, transpersonal influences and mindfulness practices. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Addictions Counselor III and a member of the United States Association for Body Psychotherapy. I am trained in the use of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and often use this tool when appropriate. I also utilize Energy Psychology methods, including Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). I have a passion for movement and body wisdom, as this offers a way to access an intelligence within and move through emotions and experiences in a way that talking does not allow! I have danced throughout my life, was an accomplished competitive swimmer in my youth, am a certified yoga instructor, Nia instructor and facilitator of Living Your Dance - Mindful Movement/Dance experiences, all contributing to my connection with the wonder of the body and the gift of the present moment.
My primary focus is supporting those who have had disruptions to their development, often resulting in behavior that may be considered on a codependent spectrum. These are often attachment and developmental disruptions or traumas relative to our most significant caregivers during our experience of growing up. I offer not only education but use experiential processes to support the process of healing in these areas. I will often use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to support what may be stuck for individuals in their moving forward in their life paths.
I also value supporting those recovering from relationship experiences with Narcissists/Sociopaths/Psychopaths. This can be a highly challenging experience but also rewarding as you take steps to grow and empower yourself. It is my passion to assist you in this process.
I am thankful for the opportunity to assist my clients through emotional healing work, new understandings, growth, clarity in life's journey and discovering new resources within. It is my intention to work collaboratively with you in the exploration of your unique gifts and dance of life.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about my approach to our work.
I would be honored to work with you!
Always in the Dance,
