Treatment Services and Specializations

Holistic Psychotherapy

Holistic Psychotherapy is an integration of a variety of healing modalities (western and eastern) to bring healing to the whole person. I believe for true and lasting healing to occur, mind body and soul all need to be addressed. This may include things like meditation, Ecotherapy, spirituality, CBT, DBT, movement, referrals to other holistic practitioners, and most importantly a safe, trusting and warm relationship between the client and therapist. This will be a highly personalized and tailored approach to what you need and want. 

Reiki Energy Healing

Reiki (“universal life-force energy”) is a healing method in which energy is drawn from the abundant Source through the practitioner who serves as a conduit, transferring the energy via the hands into the self or another person. It can be done using touch or hovering above the body without touch. Reiki works on whatever levels someone needs healing to release physical pain, blocked energy and to facilitate relaxation and spiritual opening/access to your own divine nature.
