At a very young age, I was drawn to the ancient mysteries and civilizations of the world. I spent many nights staring up at the stars wondering what else is there. Is there, not more? I lived a life guided by my intuition and imagination. As I grew older, our culture grabbed hold of me and as a consequence, I began to doubt my inner knowingness, the tapping, my intuition; but its beckoning never ceased.
Time and time again the inner tapping has guided me back to the realm of healing. I have dedicated myself to deepening my understanding of this inner knowing with many years of training and study of ancient and modern healing modalities.
In my over sixteen years in the field of mental health, I have worked with people through psychotherapy, group therapy, and spiritual teaching/coaching sessions. I have taught workshops, yoga classes, and meditation practices, in addition to facilitating Reiki I, II, III/Master certifications.
My clinical background includes individual, group, and family therapy for children and adolescents with various mental, emotional, and behavioral challenges, children and adolescents with Intellectual Disabilities and Autism, Addiction with Adults, and Community Mental Health. I have engaged in research on Self Care for Doctoral Students and the integration of Mindfulness within Residential Treatment Facilities. For the last six years, I have been working in a private practice setting providing individual therapy for children, adolescents, young adults, and adults who are Neurodivergent, specifically Highly Sensitive Persons, Introverts, and individuals with ADHD and Autism. Additionally, facilitating Grief and Bereavement counseling, LGBTQIA2S+ Affirmative therapy, and Polyamory-supportive Romantic Relationship support.
My healing practice has roots in ancient wisdom with branches of modern-day simplicity. The quest is that we do not simply yearn to heal, but that we wish to grow.
