“Almost every successful person begins with two beliefs: the future can be better than the present, and I have the power to make it so.”
I believe that one of the most powerful things we can do for others is to hold space. We each have, within us, all of the answers we need to live our best lives and sometimes all we need is someone to talk through the things that are holding us back from getting there. I am not here to provide solutions but, rather, I am here to empower you to grow, explore and find what works for you. I am here to support you in redefining your goals, testing your limits and holding you accountable to show up for yourself. You have the power within you to heal yourself and, in turn, the world around you. This is a journey I am here to walk with you, not for you. You have a choice and that is incredibly powerful. If you are ready and willing to live more intentionally and create your best life then I am ready to join you on your path to being your best self.
People come into therapy for a variety of reasons but at the root everyone wants the same, to feel better. Now. My passion is working with complex trauma but I also have extensive practice in treating individuals experiencing increased stress, depression, anxiety, school and work-related issues and relationship difficulties. I am trained in several highly effective treatment modalities including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Motivational Interviewing (MI) all of which are available to each person I work with. Together, you and I will assess your needs to determine which therapeutic approach, or mix of therapeutic approaches, would be most helpful in regaining control and moving you toward living your best life.
Holistic Wellness & Personal Development Coaching
For those who don’t necessarily experience mental health but are looking for self-betterment as a way to live a more fulfilled and meaningful life, coaching may be for you. Some reasons for seeking a coach can include wanting to live a healthier lifestyle, having a desire to switch careers and experiencing difficulty maintaining motivation through periods of change. As a Holistic Wellness and Personal Development Coach you and I will work together to identify and thoroughly assess areas of your life where change may be beneficial and then determine what transformation needs to occur to get you where you want to be. We do this by creating tangible goals which we then break down into realistic steps that we will work through together. An important part of coaching is having someone that will walk the path with you while also holding you accountable, which is exactly what I am here for.
Reiki Energy Healing
Reiki is a powerful hands-on stress reduction and relaxation technique that utilizes your body’s own energy to heal itself. Many people live with long term energy imbalances that lead to physical manifestations of symptoms, which may be alleviated by moving energy through blocked channels in the body. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that can restore one’s optimal energy movement throughout the body. During a Reiki session, the client is simply asked to relax, let go of one’s thoughts and allow the universe to do all the work.
Essential Oil Education
As a doTERRA Wellness Advocate, I have extensive training and practice using essential oils for increased health and wellbeing. If you are interested in learning more about essential oils and how to integrate them into your daily life, I provide one-on-one educational sessions to increase your comfortability with oil utilization and to help with identifying which oils may be most beneficial for you. I also teach group essential oil education classes and can tailor my presentations based on a group’s specific needs and desires. Examples of this may include: Introduction to Essential Oils, Cooking with Essential Oils, Essential Oils for Relaxation, Health Techniques Using Essential Oils, etc. If you are interested in booking a group in your area, please contact me to discuss further.
Private Clinical Supervision
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Connecticut, I provide individual and group supervision to LMSW’s seeking hours toward their LCSW. My style of supervision is reflective and transformational as I believe critical thinking is one of the most important skills a young social worker can have. My personal expertise is with children and families, adolescent and young adult mental health, and complex trauma. If you are interested in accessing this service please contact me for a free initial session to determine whether I am a fit for your clinical learning needs.
Insurance & Payments
Sliding scale fees are available for some services. Because I strongly believe that there should be no fear or shame when seeking psychotherapy services, I choose to not accept insurance. As an out-of-network provider, you and I have the ability to decide what information you would like shared with your insurance company and therefore, if you so choose, an invoice can be provided for reimbursement by your insurance carrier. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org regarding service fees.
Payment is expected at the time of your visit. Acceptable forms of payment include cash, check, debit, credit cards and PayPal.
