Ten years experience in the health care feild, seven of those as a Nurse.
Certified Hypnotherapist trained at the Colorado School of Counseling Hypnotherapy
I have extensive training as a Meditation Instructor and teacher. When indicated I use the body centered method of EMDR as a means to work through both minor and major trauma. The goal is not to change who you are, as you are already perfect, my view is to help my clients learn self acceptance on a profound level.
I have received excellent training while obtaining a Master's degree in Transpersonal Psychology from Naropa University and have an emphasis in ecopsychology and training in Hakomi. Also valuable has been my undergraduate degree in Nursing from the College of St. Catherine.
I use a holistic approach to psychotherapy, having been in the health care field for ten years, I understand how certain thought patterns can lead to physical illness and how the emotions and trauma are held in the body. I understand that we are a part of our environments, and that one way to heal, is to heal our relationship with our environment. I am also aware that we are spiritual beings, and that healing the psyche includes healing the spirit. Through mindfulness, a body centered focus, authentic presence, connecting with nature, EMDR, Gestalt and Hakomi techniques, and being with what arises, my clients are able to deeply connect with their inner nature and see through the barriers that limit them from their full potential.
