As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being ~ CG Jung
My life journey brought me to a place where I wanted to help others and share both the joys and pains of life. I decided to further my education by enrolling in a Graduate program that integrates Spirituality with both Western and Eastern Psychology. I found the perfect place for me to explore this passion at Sofia University (formally The Institute of Transpersonal Psychology) where the Transpersonal aspects of counseling psychology became the bridge that fulfilled my spiritual passion and gave me a wonderful platform to launch into the helping profession. “Transpersonal Psychology is an approach to understanding the way our minds operate through our relationships with others, resting in the belief that there is something bigger and deeper in the space between which operates upon us.” ~Jeffrey Sumber
During my practicum, I worked at Oak Hill Counseling Center. I mainly used Play Therapy and SandTray Therapy with children, adolescents, and families. I also used therapeutic skills such as mindfulness, person-centered (Carl Rogers), traditional talk, meditation, creative expression, and family systems theory with clients. I resonate with approaches and therapeutic modalities from Carl Rogers, CG Jung, and Susan Johnson. I believe each of us have the tools within ourselves to enhance our well-being and I am just here to help illuminate your own unique path.
Dreams are neither deliberate nor arbitrary fabrications; they are natural phenomena which are nothing other than what they pretend to be. They do not deceive, they do not lie, they do not distort or disguise. . . . They are invariably seeking to express something that the ego does not know and does not understand ~ CG Jung
As a result, my 3 year journey in graduate school transformed my spirit, soul, body, and mind. Such a loving, blessed, sacred transformation deserves to be honored and shared with others like yourself. That is what you will find when we co-create together. No judgment, just come as you are ~ whether or not you resonate with my journey...after all, aren't we all one in the same, connected in this beautiful web of life?
I am a certified Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) Practitioner through AUNLP™ and a CCH (Certified Crystal Healer). I am in process of obtaining my Hypnotherapy certification and have completed 20 hours of training through ASCH (American Society of Clinical Hypnosis). I am also a Psychic Intuitive and tap into Spirit for intuitive messages that are channeled through me for your highest good. I am an instrument for Divine Spirit energy to flow through me during for crystal energy healing sessions, readings, and in our sacred co-creative space. My goal is to provide a safe, loving, collaborative environment for all my clients to learn and grow at their own pace.
More fun things about me ~ I love meditation, chanting, dancing, singing, reading, writing, creative expression, music, hiking with my four-legged baby girl (Cami), swimming, being outdoors, spending time with family and friends, Oprah, Hayhouse radio (pretty much every author! - Sylvia Browne, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Colette Baron-Reid, and Iyanla Vanzant, Deepak Chopra, Sonia Choquette, Doreen Virtue, Deborah King), Bishop TD Jakes, and laughing A LOT!
I do believe one of the most important, best "medicines" for navigating life's joys and pains is laughter. We really only have the present moment...when it's great, let's cherish it...when it's not so great, let's be kind to ourselves and know this too shall pass!
