As a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, I specialize in the areas of Health, Rehabilitation, and Pain Psychology. In other words, I work with many patients who have chronic illness, debilitating conditions, cancer, orthopaedic injuries, traumatic brain injuries, chronic pain, spinal cord injuries, and other medical or orthopaedic conditions. These affect mental health through mood changes and difficulty adjusting to life transitions.
I also handle trauma issues, grief, and narcotic usage that often occurs concurrently. I always reserve a special space in my practice and in my heart to serve Active Duty Military and Veterans when they need assistance and are willing to ask for it. They may do so through traditional means or through the Give An Hour Program.
Aside from my traditional educational and practice background, I have obtained Certification as a Reiki Master, and Certified Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider. My approach to treatment is similar to my approach to life. I encourage patients and clients to explore for themselves a diverse approach to wellness that includes many healthy behaviors that may contribute to healing. They may use meditation, go to a yoga class, or try a new form of art to fill their life with positive things aside from what we work on directly in treatment. I am open to working with people of quite a few spiritual and/or religious backgrounds, as this can be quite healing as one of their tools they use to cope and make meaning of life.
I have expanded a more traditional cognitive-behavioral therapy practice
to include healing products and intuitive solutions as a separate service. Therefore, I also offer Reiki treatment, Consultations as a Psychic Medium Channel, & an Etsy shop with many complementary healing products and services. Each of my products are lovingly infused with Reiki before they reach you. Through the customized blending of integrative healing tools, we are best able to achieve an overall sense of peace and wellness. My office is an open and safe place for a broad range of people who are interested in creating their own path to wellness.
