Mind, Body & Spirit, the most important areas I integrate at YES Counseling. Building on strength and resilience is a hallmark of my work. When I meet with a client I am listening to their story and finding ways to expand and build on it. My clinical orientation is using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Positive Psychology, and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy. These theories are well researched and clinically effective. They work well with EMDR treatment for the treatment of trauma, phobia, anxiety, and adverse events. Career Counseling with a strong interest in working with women who are in STEM careers or heading in that direction is a new area we are hoping to continue to develop.

Health Coaching for clients who have been struggling with integrating healthier choices and education about what they are eating in an easy to understand and gentle approach is available. Gaining a deeper understanding of how food affects our mood for clients struggling with depression, anxiety and other mental health concerns is very beneficial. Sometimes simple changes are all that is required to better overall health.

Reiki is also available for clients who are having health concerns or would like to integrate this ancient healing practice into their therapy. Healing arts are a strong component to most hospital settings and you don’t have to wait to recover from a surgery to obtain the benefits today. 30-minute sessions are available. Learn more about Reiki in this approximately 2-min video.

Mindfulness, guided imagery, and meditation are also strong components we use to help clients connect to their own awareness and universal connection.

It is important to take the time to find the right counselor for you. Counseling is an intuitive connection, feeling comfortable to share your story and at ease in the office is very important. “Listen to your gut” if it’s not a right fit, remember there are many counselors and hundreds of theories that are used to treat clients. Find what works for you.

You’ll find many therapy options so you can choose what’s right for you, including: Individual, Group, Couples, and Family counseling.
