I provide creative counseling that is grounded in best therapy practices and is unique to uniqueness of each person.
Counselor in El Cajon, CA
I address depression and anxiety from a trauma informed point of view and will use interventions consistent with trauma therapy when indicated. I also believe that depression can be effectively treated using Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Acceptance Commitment Therapy. In addition, Music Therapy and Yoga allow for the entire body and mind to be addressed in treatment.
I support chronic pain clients using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, as well as music therapy.
I am fully trained in EMDR and have over 100 additional hours in trauma informed training, including energy psychology and somatic therapy.
I began my career as a music therapist and currently specialize in therapeutic songwriting and facilitated drum circles. In individual therapy, I use music therapy for grounding, mindfulness, and as a support for building rapport and healing attachment injuries.
I am fully trained in EMDR and have an additional 100 CEU hours of trauma training in energy psychology and somatic therapy.
I have led ACT skills groups for several years at various facilities and love how ACT is grounded in values based actions to manage depression and anxiety.
