Humans are imperfect and our imperfections can be hard to live with. However, the ability to accept ourselves and make change where needed allows us to feel strong, connected, and regulated. As a result of stress and the lack of learning how to cope with the difficulties of life, it is only natural to struggle. When we allow information into our awareness, we have the power to choose and make change. Once we can let go of negative core beliefs, regulate our bodies, and adopt a more compassionate understanding of self; we become more confident and grateful for our life in the present.
My integrated approach allows me to uniquely tailor our work together. The foundation of my practice is assisting clients to obtain a relaxed body. When our bodies are in a parasympathetic dominate state the mind is fully functioning and ready to take on any therapeutic goal the client may have.
I have been working as a therapist for over 10 years. In those years I have found that building a secure relationship with the client allows them to grow and flourish in ways never thought imaginable. I have a transparent and validating approach that allows me to be direct and challenging when the timing is appropriate.
I have had the pleasure of providing supervision to multiple limited licensed individuals over the past 10 years. I have also worked as an Adjunct Professor at Roosevelt University where I provided supervision in both Practicum and Internship classes. My style is strength based, direct, and empowering. Please contact me if you are seeking supervision from a licensed clinical counselor.
As a professional I seek the guidance and viewpoint of other professionals whom I trust and respect. If you are interested in engaging in a consultation group please message me.
