Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LCADC)
I also believe it is important to explore and help one understand their triggers and underlying vulnerabilities for using substances and to view the person from a holistic perspective within the broader context of society.
My clinical experiences include working with the adult population in both an in-patient and out-patient setting, utilizing a variety of treatment approaches including but not limited to SMART Recovery (certified facilitator), 12-step programs, cognitive-behavioral-therapy, and motivational interviewing while maintaining a person-centered orientation.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
It is believed that similar mechanisms in the brain which allow for individuals to process memory and information during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep at night, will also help the brain heal from traumatic experiences by replicating a similar bilateral stimulation (eye movements in which the client tracks a moving target with their eyes, etc.) to help the brain unlock these painful experiences and reprocess them in a healthy way.
Certified Yoga Instructor
Some of these practices are psychological in nature (i.e. nonattachment) and others are physical (asanas [postures], meditation, pranayama [breath work]). My yoga training includes an emphasis on energy and chakras, which correspond to both physical and emotional needs.Together, we can work on restoring balance within these various energy centers and thus influence the ways in which we interact with and experience the world within and around us.
My training has also influenced me to appreciate the use of other complementary and alternative methods of treatment such as aromatherapy and reiki within or in conjunction with the therapy process. My passion for both yoga and helping others intersected in 2017, when I earned first place at a Research Symposium for my own research project titled “Introducing Complementary and Alternative Medicine as a Counseling Technique.”
I feel it is important to note that while I find value in the holistic and traditional practices of the cultural world, I know these same practices do not align for everyone. As such, it is important to remember that my counseling style and sessions are uniquely designed for the individual and are not a one-size-fits-all approach.
