My Ideal Client

I am a mental health coach using mindfulness, meditation, reiki, internal family systems and yoga to assist clients in developing self-care routines so they can feel grounded, calm and capable. I teach clients how to utilize these tools to connect to their own wisdom and intuitive knowing so they feel empowered in their daily life to work through what arises. The modalities I utilize are based on current neuroscience research that show they work.

My Approach to Helping

I will create an environment that enables you to feel safe, so that you may develop trust and can feel heard and seen. I understand the current neuroscience research that discusses the impact that attachment trauma, childhood trauma, and life stressors can have on the body and mind, while also understanding this from a parts perspective. I will help you develop self-awareness so you can bring unconscious beliefs and patterns into consciousness and shift them. This will help you develop insights into all parts of yourself, as well as help you develop somatic and mindfulness tools to live in the present moment more fully. Once you deepen your relationship with your inner world, you will be able to heal the core beliefs that no longer serve you and heal parts that are burdened by pain so you can live more authentically. I do not do trauma processing with clients but help them develop tools so they can live more fully in the present moment.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I received my Masters in Counseling from Pacifica Graduate Institute, where I studied Jungian Psychology/Depth Psychology. I am licensed with the Oregon State Board of Marriage and Family Therapists. I am trained in EMDR, mind/body therapy, somatic and mindfulness practices, Internal Family Systems informed, meditation, Yoga Therapy, and trauma treatments.

Techniques I Use

Specialties

  • Depth Therapy External link

    Through the use of expressive arts, dream interpretation, and shamanic journeying, I assist clients in understanding the metaphors and symbols present for them. This way of working assists individuals in connecting their unconscious thoughts, desires, and blocks into their conscious mind so they gain a better understanding of who they are. It also assists them in experiencing the numinous which leads to a deeper connection to Self and others.

  • Somatic Therapy (Body Centered) External link

    I am trained in mind/body therapy, yoga, internal family systems, and mindfulness practices which neuroscience research has shown is effective in treating depression, trauma, and anxiety.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Anxiety External link

    Many of us have experienced difficulty things and/or have current life stressors. Anxiety symptoms are the bodies natural defense mechanism. I work with individuals to help them understand what their body is communicating and how to develop coping skills to decrease the symptoms of anxiety. Neuroscience has shown that mindfulness and somatic practices are excellent ways of treating anxiety. I also utilize a combination of internal family systems theory, Jungian archetypal psychology and Jungian

  • Chronic Pain or Illness External link

    It can be challenging living with chronic pain or illness. There is hope in the current neuroscience research that show that somatic practices like yoga, breath work, and meditation can decrease pain receptor activation, as well as shift your relationship with your pain so it is more manageable. I also utilize a combination of internal family systems theory, Jungian archetypal psychology and Jungian active imagination to assist you in healing what is happening in your internal world and connect
