I received my Master of Arts in Counseling from St. Edward’s University, graduating with Honors, and hold a Bachelor of Science from the University of Texas at Austin. I also have a Certification in Clinical Hypnosis through ASCH, and am a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga-Alliance, with specialized training in Integrative Yoga Therapy and Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy. I have been counseling adults in a private practice setting since 2011, providing guidance through most common human experiences, including depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse in childhood, relationship problems, self-esteem issues, transition periods, identity crises, spiritual struggles, time-management difficulties, and separation/divorce.
Training is important, but my own life experiences are even more influential in my work. Over the years I have gradually cultivated a way of working that is not yet written about in text books, but allows me to guide people through deeply healing sessions, and to do so very efficiently. Following a very painful divorce a few years ago, I experienced an astonishing series of events that can only be described as an intense spiritual awakening. While I am working on getting the details down in writing, the important thing to know if you are interested in working with me, is that I approach therapeutic work as a deeply spiritual process, and I also use my intuitive abilities and sensitivities to energy as we work. As an intuitive empath, I can *see* where energy is trapped in your body, and we will get right to work releasing what no longer serves you. I combine my formal training with a very organically learned approach, using all these tools to support your highest good.
As a result of consciousness-shifting experiences and specific states of gnosis I have undergone, certain universal truths will form the foundation of our sessions, including the reality that we are spiritual beings having a human experience in a body. Operating with this premise already in place saves a lot of time and allows me to do my best work. While I do not pressure clients into any specific belief system, I feel it is important that clients are open to these ideas in order to be a good fit for my practice. I’m passionate about my work and consider it an honor to guide people along their healing process; it is a joy to witness each person’s potential unfold.
