Approach to counseling: “My approach is holistic, in which I attempt to help clients to seek and enhance the mind-body-spirit connection to improve well-being, lower stress, and help reduce trauma responses. A holistic approach provides support that looks at the whole person- physical, emotional, social, and spiritual- not just their mental health needs, and also takes the entire human being and their life experiences into consideration for assessment and treatment purposes.”
