My approach provides nurturing support and practical feedback to individuals to help them effectively address life challenges. By incorporating change into clients' existing lifestyles, I help to manage stress, navigate deep self-exploration, find increased meaning in life, and break free of emotional patterns that prevent people from achieving their goals. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each person.
I act as a guide on a journey deep into your true Self. Even in this moment of possible pain and confusion, you are complete, and my goal is to help you feel this truth. When there is an aware connection to the place of stillness within you, right action and needed changes occur with ease. There is unbelievable healing in surrender, in a practice of being.
In 2016, I began researching and training in the areas of ancient religious and philosophical traditions, shamanic arts, and esoteric and energy healing practices. I am a certified Reiki Master, a certified EFT practitioner, a student of the shamanic practices program at HCH Institute, and have attended numerous retreats and workshops on shamanic practices, energy healing, and body work.
With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to pursuing. Clients will discover ways to nourish their minds, bodies, and spirits, find balance in themselves and in life, and foster greater self-love.
I graduated from Saint Mary's College of California in 2013 with a master's degree in counseling and a specialization in marriage and family therapy. During my time at Saint Mary's I trained in humanistic and Rogerian therapy, which positions that healing occurs when an environment of unconditional positive regard is created through the use of empathy and non-judgment. I use a combination of therapeutic techniques that include traditional talk therapy, meditation, energy healing, sand play, inner child work, expressive arts, shamanic ritual/drumming, and emotional freedom technique.
I maintain a private practice in Tracy, CA, as well as offer virtual sessions to residents of California. Please contact me to inquire about current availability.
