The cost of love is loss. I assist people in finding meaning and reconnecting to a purposeful life. I have attended trainings by David Kessler and continue to be educated on the very human process of grief. I also have training in grief yoga from Paul Denniston.
OMG Burnout! We are hearing so much about it and I am thrilled. Lets talk about it and keep talking about it, how to notice it and recover while maintaining balance to prevent it. I have attended training by Emily Nagoski and adore her books on burnout and sexual health. I assist clients in identifying their unmet needs, use science to "complete the stress cycle," and use tools to stay balanced so we don't repeatedly get burnout.
I teach simple, effective skills to reduce anxiety. What does anxiety rob you of? Maybe sleep, friendship, romantic connections, or enjoying the present moment. You can have those back and more.
Being a member of the ACBS keeps me connected to other ACT therapist as well as guidance in providing ACT therapies effectively and updates within the ACT model. I also engage in group consultation, self reflection, and continued education throughout the year.
My graduate program at the University of San Francisco was heavily influenced by CBT. I use CBT loosely with limited homework. I do not provide traditional CBT but rather use CBT lessons to provide education and tools to client's stuck in behavior they wish to change.
I have over 13 years of experience helping people through trauma. More significantly, I have experienced several trauma's myself, including the sudden death of my brother and pregnancy loss. Healing from my own experience with trauma with the help of my own therapist, I know it is possible to feel whole again. I have taken many trainings over the years with David Kessler and others.
You don’t have to suffer. As a member of Perinatal Support Washington, I am connected with the newest research, support groups, and other professionals available to help.
