WHOLE PERSON APPROACH

Support That Makes a Difference

COUNSELING SESSION

~If you are struggling with anxiety, grief, anger, trauma, emotional regulation, body image, self-worth, life transitions, family issues, or other life stressors~

Life throws many surprises at us, and while we cannot predict the outcome of any situation, we can take control of how we respond to certain situations. With my training, you’ll learn about acceptance and how to exert your power of choice over whatever life may throw at you. I will help guide you on your journey towards improved mental well-being. Get in touch today and start taking steps towards healing.

BRAINSPOTTING SESSION

~If you have tried other types of self help or therapy and are not seeing the improvement you were hoping for~

Brainspotting is a relatively newer, cutting edge technique that is believed to tap into the body's natural self-scanning and self healing abilities, based on the notion that where you look affects how you feel. Brainspotting has demonstrated the ability to improve many conditions such as anxiety, phobias, addictions, depression, chronic pain and other medical conditions, performance blocks, and effects of trauma. With support from your therapist, the overwhelming effects of trauma or stress can help be discharged from your system resulting in a calmed nervous system. The latest research indicates that we store trauma and stress in our body. Brainspotting works on finding those storage locations and helping the body to process and discharge them.
Brainspotting is done with the client and their eye movement, the therapist, and often a pointer and bilateral music.

SPORT AND PERFORMANCE CONSULTING SESSION

~If you are struggling with motivation, concentration, focus, resilience, self-confidence, goal setting, self-regulation, coping skills, and other factors that impact your performance~

Sport and Performance Psychology (SPP) is one of my specific areas of expertise. SPP is concerned with the psychological factors that influence human performance. Every single one of us performs each and every day. Simply put, SPP is about improving lives by assisting people in reaching their full potential in their realm of performance, in your field or on your field. Whether you are an athlete, a parent, a surgeon, a police officer, a lawyer, a student or any other role where you may struggle reaching your optimal level of performance, my job is to guide you on your journey. These sessions involve assessment and intervention strategies that enhance your performance and personal growth.

RELATIONSHIP COUNSELING SESSION

~If you are struggling with trust, communication, boundaries, intimacy, and other factors that impact the well-being of your relationship~

Relationships can at times be difficult to navigate. Whether it be poor communication, insecurities and trust issues, or sensing a lost connection, having a relationship take a turn for the worse can have a big impact on your life and well-being. While we can't control our circumstances or the ebbing and flowing of our relationships, we can become more aware of our emotions and those of others, and how they affect one another, especially in our relationships. With my counseling, I can assist you in understanding your situation, developing goals, and implementing the changes necessary to get your relationship back on track.
