I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (2012) and am passionate about its efficiency and effectiveness. EMDR creates an opportunity for individuals to organically resolve the barriers, burdens, and negative belief systems that they carry and that impact their ability to really move forward in the way they want. Common issues treated with EMDR include: victimization (historic or recent), sleep disturbances, anxiety, fear/phobias, and grief/loss. The cost for a 50-minute session is $100; the cost for an 80-minute session is $135.
After many years of counseling, I wanted to learn more about the connection between mind and body. I earned my certification as a Nutrition Coach from the Academy of Addiction and Mental Health Nutrition. I studied the importance of food, proper nutrition and self care and its effects on physical and emotional wellness. This allows me to combine my knowledge of the physical and mental health and seek connections, in order to more fully aid my clients in recovery. Nutritional Coaching can be added to any other therapeutic service. The cost for nutritional coaching only is $45 for a 30 minute session or $250 for a package of six. I believe that six weekly sessions is ideal to initiate new sustainable healthy habits. These sessions can be held locally or remotely.
Mental Health Consultation, Training, Teaching, and Supervision
In an effort to reach more individuals and to play a role in creating a more trauma informed world, I offer mental health support in various forms. I am currently a mental health consultant for our Mountain Resource Center, a child welfare trainer for the Kempe Center, and a clinical supervisor to Masters level intern students as well as those obtaining licensure in the State of Colorado. Let me know how I can help you, your team, or your business to be more mental health savvy! Contact me for products and rates.
Adolescent Individual Counseling
Being a teen (or tween!) comes with challenges. Learning healthy coping skills and a new, positive belief system early helps set teens up for a lifetime of success. I utilize a strength based approach with Cognitive and Dialectical Behavioral techniques to assist teens toward health. At times, I also utilize EMDR (see above). Some common issues teens face (and I treat) include: depression, stress/anxiety, self harm, suicidality, self esteem, social, academic, and behavioral issues. I treat children and adolescents over the age of 7. The cost for a 50-minute session is $100.
Adult Individual Counseling
Adults tend to reach out for treatment when they feel stuck- stuck meeting a goal(s), in their career, relationships or love. I provide a grounding and authentic environment, utilize a client-centered approach aligned with Cognitive and Dialectical Behavioral techniques to assist adults in their journey. When appropriate, I utilize EMDR (see above). Some issues adult seek treatment for are: depression (including suicidality), anxiety, relationship problems, childhood or recent trauma, poor self-esteem, lack of social connection, insufficient coping skills, and sleep disorders. The cost for a 50-minute session is $100.
