I take a holistic, non-evasive approach to therapy. I strongly believe all individuals possess the innate ability to calm and direct themselves using discovered and undiscovered gifts. However, due to stress, anxiety, trauma responses, emotional management difficulty, and negative thought processes, often this ability has not been utilized effectively.
Therefore, I strive to assist my clients in the discovery/rediscovery of this innate ability and the identification and enhancement of these accompanying gifts, along with the removal of any negative energy that might hinder access to these therapeutic centers, through the utilization of various therapeutic techniques such as mindfulness, acupuncture, creative restructuring, and food intake as well as traditional therapeutic methods.
In addition, I am a firm believer in continued learning. Therefore, I often attend relevant conferences and workshops and research effective, evidence-based practices with a holistic, non-evasive approach.
Mindfulness is a common therapeutic technique, which assists the individual with focusing her/his awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting her/his feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations.
Grounding, which is very similar to mindfulness, is another common therapeutic technique and is often used when feeling anxious or experiencing a flashback episode. Grounding helps the individual to re-position her/his mind to the present moment, assuring the individual that she/he is in a safe conscious place.
This may include, but is not limited to, therapeutic sessions in your home or in natural settings.
Some may wonder how is art a part of therapy. However, art plays many important roles. For instance, art assists the individual in relieving stress as well as focusing on the here and now, thereby allaying the anxiety caused by continued dwelling in the past and/or nervous anticipation of future events.
Don't worry, though; you don't have to be perfect at this. There are various ways to utilize art, and it is my job to guide you in this area as needed.
