Hope-Focused Soul Care
ANXIETY, GRIEF, TRAUMA
Whether you need help coping with the stress of the present, anxiety of the future, or healing from the trauma and abuse of the past, I provide a therapeutic space and guidance for you along your journey. I enjoy being a support person for you, while teaching the skills and tools you need to express your grief and pain in a healthy way, as you work through losses in life. Let's work to identify harmful and unhealthy patterns that you can change in order to enhance your life.
If you’re a caregiver or helping professional and it feels like you’re caring for others to the point that it’s causing you pain and suffering, you may need some help with recognizing and managing the symptoms associated with Compassion Fatigue. When you focus on helping others without practicing self-care, it’s possible for unhealthy behaviors to start surfacing. I can help create a plan of health and wellness.
You live your life in relationships. They can hurt us and they can heal us. If you’re in an unhealthy relationship with yourself, someone else, or God that hurts the majority of the time, I’d like to hear about where you are and help point you toward health and wholeness. Unhealthy patterns and unhealed trauma often result in feelings of emptiness, numbness, and a wounding of the soul.
I take a holistic, integrative approach to counseling in which working towards health includes not only our physical but also our emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. With a passion for cross-cultural counseling, I served with a team in Southeast Asia and worked in Texas counseling refugees. I've enjoyed traveling to countries in South Asia, as well as Central America, to provide counseling services and trainings in the areas of disaster mental health and trauma. I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the State of Florida who is clinically trained and offers counseling in a compassionate and confidential atmosphere.
