Philosophy and Approach to Counseling:
As a holistic therapist, I see emotional and physical comfort and disease as interlinked.I see myself as an ally to people who are suffering through depression, anxiety, mooddisorders insomnia, PTSD, panic attacks, OCD, fibromyalgia, chronic fatiguesyndrome, autoimmune related illness and addiction issues. Often when we becomestuck, or are feeling grief and sadness in our lives, our emotional pain translates intophysical discomfort and sometimes illness. It is at these key times that we may needgreater help to uncovering the root of our suffering.
When mental or physical illness comes to us, it can feel like it is taking the joy andpleasure out of our lives. It can be very difficult to stay positive when our bodies are inpain and suffering. My approach is to help clients develop mindfulness as a way oflistening to our body and what it is telling us, as well as gently encouraging the beststrategies, nutrition, herbal supplements and nourishment to help clients to strengthen and heal.
