"I believe whole heartedly that we all have the capacity to overcome our struggles, feel healthy and happy. Difficult life experiences can cause damage to our foundation of self-worth and personal power. However, when we alter our mindset to view these experiences as opportunities for personal growth and evolvement, we become empowered and realize our self-worth. With a strong foundation, all other aspects of our lives can grow. My practice is a synergy of clinical expertise, intuited wisdom, and healing therapies to help others reach a place of self-compassion, empowerment, and joy."
PASSIONATE ABOUT HELPING OTHERS
Similar to many in the field of social work, I began my career focused on theory and developing my clinical expertise. Over the years, I became dissatisfied with the focus of my profession on strengthening coping skills and medicating rather than overcoming and healing from struggles and traumatic experiences. I realized that by combining my clinical practice with healing, I could help people overcome their struggles, rather than merely cope. I did this by developing my intuition, becoming a Reiki Master, and certified hypnotist. I founded A Centered Self to create a place where people can come to release their struggles and heal.
My focus is on helping others build a strong foundation of self-worth, personal power, and “centered selves”. I utilize my developed intuition to guide sessions with clients, accessing that “all knowing” part of us to help others transform into their healthiest selves. My intuitive skills enable us to connect to the heart of struggles and access guidance on how to heal them. This ability changes the course for clients so we can quickly get to the bottom of the effects of life experiences and areas in need of healing. Intuitive work differs from traditional therapy by focusing on revealing the root causes of struggles rather than on self-discovery. Self-discovery can be a long process, while intuitive work provides the information required for healing.
As an intuitive practitioner, I work with clients who struggle with many issues, including stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, and managing relationships. My sessions combine my clinical skills, developed intuition and energy healing/Reiki to help clients achieve a deeper understanding of themselves and transform.
