I am very passionate about what I do and am constantly working on myself as a professional with continuing education to bring new and exciting resources to my clients. I am especially passionate about repairing not only how we have come to view ourselves, others and the world as a whole, but also in repairing the physical damage to our bodies that chronic stress, depression or trauma have inflicted. This has brought my attention to educational courses and research into mind-body connections, nutrition, exercise and the role that hormones all play in keeping us stuck in unhealthy emotions and ways of thinking. This is why I am very excited to practice along side The Henderson Healing Hub - www.hendersonhealinghub.com - which offers many holistic and alternative approaches to physical and mental health my clients might also like to explore in their journey of healing. The Henderson Healing Hub offers so many valuable self-care services such as, accupuncture, massage, Reiki, natural supplements, yoga cupping and more. I have seen my clients benefit so much from creating a well rounded schedule of self care because it prepares the mind and body more effectively for the deeper emotional and cognitive work of therapy. If our foundation is strong, we can handle so much more than we think.
