My practice emphasizes providing clients with holistic therapeutic services, focusing on complete health and wellness. I share the philosophy with many practitioners that holistic health depends upon spiritual, mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing. When one area is affected by stress, trauma, or negative behavior patterns, other areas of ones being can suffer. I work to provide treatment that focuses on how to become whole and not on identifying clinical diagnoses that focus on illness. I want all my clients to receive individualized care based on their specific needs.
For patients trying to cope with chronic pain and other medical issues, I provide wellness therapy that expands their treatment beyond a clinical setting. I offer these patients alternatives to medicine and other medical procedures. The objective of this work is to provide individuals with tools that will help them manage pain and discover paths to healing.
In addition to these services, I provide holistic psychotherapy to individuals and couples. I offer specific services for adolescents, since this group faces special challenges during an already difficult developmental period. For adolescents and adults, I treat depression, anxiety, mood disorders, substance abuse, poor stress management, GLBTQ issues, grief, trauma, and many more difficulties. Couples may seek my guidance for conflict resolution, trust and adjustment issues, infidelity, communication issues, co-dependency, and more.
