I work with the parents of children aged 3 to 6 who are struggling with tantrums or inappropriate behavior. Therapy helps parents feel more empowered and learn new tools to parent their children. I also work with children of all ages struggling with anxiety or who have experienced traumatic events.
I also work with adolescents who have recently experienced a psychotic episode or the beginning signs of a mood disorder. Often these adolescents are struggling to manage and understand the symptoms. Therapy can help give them concrete coping skills to manage their experiences and relate symptoms to their life experiences. Integration of the two experiences can lead to a decrease in the symptoms.
I am also a Master Level Reiki practitioner and offer Reiki to children. Children’s Reiki is a natural, safe, and gentle healing treatment. As children experience the world, they encounter feelings, emotions, and situations that can be overwhelming to them. This is particularly true for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. A Reiki healing may remove disharmony in the body that is caused by uncomfortable or confusing situations and feelings.
When working with adults I combine Jungian psychology and Reiki to create an integrative healing experience. We will begin the session discussing what has brought you in. Reiki is then administered. During the session I will utilize Reiki to guide you deeper into the unconscious layers of stored emotions. This will connect you to your own intuition and bring to you awareness of what needs to be released in order to connect with your innate joy. After the Reiki portion of the session, I will facilitate a conversation regarding what was present for you. Utilizing the images and metaphors present, I will guide you in understanding the relevance of the experience to your life.
