I started my career in mental health by working at an eight-bed halfway house for chronically mentally ill adults when I was 19. I saw first hand how the least qualified people were dealing with the most difficult cases and I wanted to change that. I’ve worked my way up from the bottom of the mental health ladder, working with many types of clients, issues and settings. Becoming a therapist was a natural progression.
After graduate school, I completed a three-year postgraduate training program in psychodynamic psychotherapy and two years of training in object relations. I put a high value on ongoing education in order to stay at the top of the most current research and cutting-edge interventions available. I have an eclectic approach rooted in the belief that the unconscious mind is responsible for the majority of out thought, feelings, behaviors, and actions.
I blend what I know about the unconscious mind, with cognitive and behavioral interventions, neurolinguistic programming, the enneagram, EMDR, and Energy Psychology techniques to rapidly and permanently shift perception, emotion, and behavior.
I first learned about the various fields of energy psychology in 2013 and it opened up a whole new world for me. I was so impressed by the results, that I began training in this new and exciting method of healing. I am passionate about the rapid yet gentle, simple yet elegant techniques because I’ve seen the difference they have made in my life and in the lives of my clients. I want to help you reach your goals, follow your dreams and never ever back away from a challenge. You can follow this link to learn more about energy psychology.
