I work with women clients/students who are in need of support in areas of wellness, and women who simply want to discover more about themselves. My experience has covered areas such as adolescent concerns, eating disorders, anxiety, childhood abuse/neglect, chronic illness, co-dependency, distress, domestic violence, grief, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic attacks, post-traumatic stress, and substance abuse. I specialize in working with individuals with disabilities and education/vocational support.
One to One Client Counseling: Emphasis is on the holistic nature of human function and integrity, with a focus on where the client is stuck and promoting growth beyond their current locus of control. The counseling process involves self-discovery and awareness activities, including: self and social communication; career development; cognitive, behavioral, and emotional support; and pro-active goal setting. Intentional outcomes for clients include increased personal and professional productivity, happiness, wellness, and balance. Counseling hours are virtual 50 minute sessions.
Theoretical Counseling/Coaching Approach - 20+ years of counseling background taught me that no one size fits all approach works when addressing individual needs. I begin counseling/coaching by using theories such as; cognitive, behavioral, interpersonal, motivational, and mindfulness to name a few. The goal is for the client to feel heard, safe, and comfortable in order to move forward on their journey by utilizing skills learned from each counseling/coaching session.
Retreats: Offering an intimate retreat setting from Friday-Sunday including 6 nutritious meals. Each retreat weekend consists of small group settings with a focus on rejuvenation, revitalization, self-care, fun, and interaction with other women in a safe, shared space. Activities include: yoga; meditation; group work sessions; and outdoor activities. Intentional outcomes for the participant include feelings of rest, embraced, authenticity, productivity, and investment in self.
