Talk Therapy and energy healing
I am a practicing licensed therapist and have been working since 2006. I have always been looking for a tool in my tool box that could help me fully support and allow my patients to heal. I realized during my career that traditional talk therapy was not allowing patient’s to fully heal and was frustrated with the fact that my patient’s were still having debilitating symptoms. I have used alternative treatments throughout the years including, meditation, breath work, yoga and joyfulness.
I am now calling Reiki in to support in combination with traditional psychotherapy. I use intuitive practices and connect with your guide team to assist in healing. I am a Usui/ Holy Fire Reiki Master. I am also a member of the Reiki Membership Association and The National Association of Social Workers which provides me with a wealth of support as I work to combine eastern and western therapies.
I received my Master's Degree in Social Work from Columbia University in 2001. I worked for many years in community mental health primarily with trauma survivors. I also taught yoga and this began my path of using integrative practices. After moving to Portland I started opening up to energy work in my own practice and connecting to my own intuition. This has allowed for me to support people in the way that I have been searching for. I believe that everyone has the capacity to lead a joyful life! I would be so honored to be apart of your healing team.
