Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Yoga Teacher, Reiki Master
I love to work with people from children to adults. I provide therapy for the treatment of PTSD, depression, anxiety, grief, and relationship issues.
While completing my graduate studies, I embarked on a very personal journey, and received a 200-hour yoga teacher training certificate in all levels vinyasa yoga.
Since then I have has continued my training and education in all things yoga and mental health. Along this path, I have realized the powerful healing properties of yoga for mental health.
Yogic philosophies such a meditation, posture, and breath call the soul back in the body by allowing the life force to move through mind and body once again. It awakens and heals those dealing with energetic off balances such as depression, anxiety, or trauma.
In our work, we set up the conditions for healing through creating a safe space. There we explore the emotional and physical body through talk therapy and trauma sensitive yoga.
Background and Education
I received my Masters in Counseling from Regis University.
By tailoring therapeutic counseling, yoga and Reiki training to each individual, I help people to develop and integrate a new understanding of challenges they have been facing. Clients find new wisdom by understanding that their symptoms are directly related to the struggles they have dealt with. Through the integration process my clients gain a deeper wisdom and insight into the human experience, this allows them to feel safe again, and open their hearts back up.
It’s through this heart centered approach that I help my clients integrate their traumas. I also use somatic tools, such as yoga posture and breath work, to help clients gain control over their nervous system and bodies. This allows them to feel empowered within, as opposed to feeling victim to the whims of emotions and difficult somatic symptoms. My approach has a holistic taste to it and my aim is to realign the mind, body, and soul by welcoming in peace and acceptance between these three systems.
My special areas of focus include:
- Yoga Therapy
- Individual Counseling
- Counseling for Children and Adolescents
- Recovery from addiction or behavior concerns
- Trauma and PTSD recovery
