Therapist InfoAbout Me:
I hold a Masters degree (MA) in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara. My trainings include completion of trainings and certification of EMDR at the Maiberger Institute in Boulder, CO, REBT at the Albert Ellis Institute in New York, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Rapid Resolution Therapy with Dr Jon Connelly, The Developmental Needs Meeting Strategy (a branch of Internal Family Systems), Psychedelic Assisted Therapy, and Psychedelic Somatic Interactional Therapy. I have enhanced my knowledge and education with therapeutic methods I have experienced, and have achieved a successful degree of recovery. I use them in my practice because I believe in their efficacy. Please see my Resource page for more information. I have walked the walk! This also does not need to be a lengthy process. Truth be told talk therapy has its value, and that is to understand what has happened, and have adverse experiences validated, though it is not an effective method for addressing trauma, anxiety and depression.Description of Services:
My mission is to provide efficient service, within a safe and supportive environment for my clients, where they can feel a real difference, overcome their challenges, and achieve their goals with confidence and authenticity. My goal is to include a focus on building meaningful connections with my clients and helping them to navigate life's challenges with compassion and understanding.
Overall, my mission is to help individuals to thrive in their personal and professional lives by providing customized coaching and counseling services that support their growth, development, and well-being.
Another goal is to make it as easy and comfortable as possible to get you back to doing what you love.
I specialize in childhood trauma, developmental trauma, or what is best known as Complex PTSD.
Individual counseling is a choice people make when they feel as though they have room for improvement in their life. Whether it be lacking a clear focus, or something different, individual counseling can help you to overcome these obstacles and allow you to reach your highest potential.Credentials & Certifications: LPC, EMDRLicenses: LPC CO 0011828, LPC TX 86828, LPC AZ 20140

Our ProcessOverview of Experience:
Somatic therapy, on the other hand, recognizes the interconnectedness of the mind and body and emphasizes the importance of addressing trauma and psychological distress through bodily experiences and sensations. It involves working with bodily sensations, movement, breath, and other somatic techniques to release tension, process emotions, and promote healing.
Interactive therapeutic techniques refer to the use of relational and interactive interventions within the therapeutic relationship. These can include verbal dialogue, role-playing, expressive arts, mindfulness exercises, and other forms of engagement between the therapist and the client. The aim is to create a safe and supportive environment for exploration, integration, and transformation.
Psychedelic Somatic and Interactive Assisted Therapy combines the unique properties of psychedelic substances, the somatic focus on the body's wisdom and healing potential, and interactive therapeutic methods to create a holistic and transformative therapeutic experience. It is believed that this integrated approach can facilitate deep healing, promote self-awareness, and enhance personal growth.
I facilitate Psychedelic Somatic and Interactive Therapy sessions with the aid of Cannabis or Ketamine. Firstly because they are both legal and second because Cannabis and Ketamine although substances that promote dissociation are two substances that help connect with the body, sensations, and dissociated parts. "Leaning on the dissociation" is a way to begin to integrate adverse childhood events and trauma.Intake Process:
