Eden Energy Medicine and Reiki
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Certified Addiction Counselor (CAC III), Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC), Eden Energy Medicine Certified Practitioner (EEM-CP), and Rapid Resolution Therapy® Certified Practitoner. I have a Master's degree from the University of Colorado Denver in Counseling and Counselor Education with a focus in Marriage and Family Counseling and a Certification in Eden Energy Medicine. While I work with people of all ages, I have extensive experience working with teenagers, young adults and women’s issues.
I have a reality therapy and choice theory background which recognizes that we all have five basic needs which we are consciously or unconsciously trying to meet. This approach empowers the person to identify what they want, do what is in their control to change situations, and alter behaviors that are not working for them. I have a passion for learning about how the brain works and have trained extensively with a neuroscientist who has provided me with ways of working with the brain to shift the way it is currently functioning and create a way of thinking which empowers one to have more control over their thoughts and feelings. Much of my practice comes from a basis of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and combines other modalities to assist each person on the journey of achieving their highest potential without re-traumatizing the body and brain.
I incorporate a variety of styles and techniques into my work with others, including the use of: Rapid Resolution Therapy®, energy psychology, emotional freedom techniques (EFT), Matrix Reimprinting, mindfulness, expressive arts, play therapy, strengths based methods, guided imagery and energy work. In these methods I help clients identify and achieve goals by building on their strengths, finding balance, removing blocks, becoming empowered to reach their full potential and creating the life they desire.
In addition to being a counselor, I am a Reiki Master/Teacher and an Eden Energy Medicine Certified Practitioner (EEM-CP).
