Specializing in trauma, cancer survivors, sexual issues, depression, anxiety, and other life transitions.
Increased self-awareness, establishment of boundaries and increased trust in yourself and others.
After going through a divorce and breast cancer within a two-year period, I found myself in the middle of a major life transition. I had been teaching yoga and mothering my three children for ten years, and I was ready to expand my horizons. I realized the common threads which gave meaning to my life were relationships and listening to others. Becoming a counselor was an evolution of the gifts I had been honing my whole life.
I think we all have times when a monkey wrench gets thrown into our lives, and we are not quite sure how to handle it. Sometimes it is illness that causes suffering, or sometimes it may be that we have been holding so many things back that one event can cause us to feel we are falling apart. I enjoy working with clients to help them use their innate wisdom and the tools I provide to emerge from suffering feeling stronger and nurtured. At client’s request, I incorporate breathing and yoga techniques in therapy sessions to aid the healing process.
I have three school-aged children. In my personal time I enjoy making art, reading, writing, cooking, and practicing yoga. I have been teaching yoga since 2004, and I am an adjunct professor of psychology at Southeastern Oklahoma State University for their online undergraduate program.
