Licensed Professional Counselor in McKinney
I hold the belief that all human beings are striving to do the best they can as they navigate through life’s many challenges, joys and perils. I see my role as a therapist as assisting clients in identifying their true needs and desires, clarifying their goals, transcending ways of being that are not serving them, and coming into a stronger awareness of themselves and the world around them.
I hold a Master’s Degree from Naropa University and have over a decade of experience as a Licensed Professional Counselor. My approach focuses on empowering individuals, relationships and groups and is rooted in the fields of Transpersonal, Humanistic and Gestalt psychotherapy. I am also a Certified Hypnotherapist. I have studied with sex and intimacy pioneers Michaela Boehm and Steve James and completed extensive post-graduate training at the Applachian Gestalt Therapy Institute.
I believe that talk therapy is a vital tool for personal transformation but it only takes us so far. Far too often counseling focuses solely on the mental and emotional realms, neglecting the wisdom of the body. Experiential engagement with one’s experience is an important component of health and well-being. After all, we are human beings, not simply human brains.
In addition to verbal exploration, I am always interested in exploring one’s physical experience, body language and total awareness. When you say you are angry, what does your body do? Do you experience tension in your shoulders, heat in your chest? How do these physical sensations trigger your emotions? And how can this emerging awareness help you to make different choices?
Blending conversation and experience, I utilize the process of therapeutic counseling to help you complete unfinished business in your life and relationships and come into greater awareness, power and wholeness.
