What is my therapeutic superpower?
My therapeutic superpower is empathy. As a bona fide empath and someone who’s been through a lot of stuff, I can authentically empathize and sympathize with my clients. Because of my experiences, I have a deep appreciation for my client and their story.
In acupuncture school one of the doctors told me as I was in for treatment for yet another issue or other, “He who has many ailments will make a great doctor.”
Aside from having experienced a lot of things in my life, I share with my clients the same tools that I use and continue to use to process when issues arrive.
I strive to give my clients tools for living as much as healing in the moment.
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I provided physical medicine as a chiropractor and acupuncturist for over 30 years. During that time I also participated in training as clairvoyant reader and healer. I was afraid to use the term psychic along with my professional licenses so when I discovered hypnotherapy about eight years ago I dove into that therapeutic modality. During my hypnotherapy and NLP, neurolinguistic programming training I discovered there’s a lot of overlap between my tools as a clairvoyant and many of the tools we use in hypnotherapy and NLP. There’s also some overlap in some of the more esoteric principles of acupuncture and Chinese medicine and my clairvoyant training.
After a series of injuries that made providing physical medicine too challenging, I decided that this was the time to lean fully into healing on an energetic and psycho emotional level. I pivoted away from chiropractic and acupuncture to full time hypnotherapy, medical intuitive and clairvoyant reading. I still bring all of my training and experiences into every session. When you book a session with me you get a lot of healers all in one.
What is the one thing that I’ve discovered from my own therapy?
That I am an eternal optimist. I thrive because I always cling to hope. Regardless of the circumstance, healing has prevailed. The tools that I use with clients are the very tools that helped me get through my deepest depression. Even through a haze of exhaustion, prescribed medications, and multiple ongoing diagnoses’ my psyche lists towards the affirmative. The glass is half-full mentality is a guiding principle that I bring to every session. Because I work from validation, I surrounded myself with doctors, therapists and healers that also operate from validation. *To operate from validation means that as a practitioner I see the client as valued, and I acknowledge them and their emotions and I see them as a spirit.
I found healers that could see me as I need it to be seen so that I and my body could heal. This experience has further emphasized the importance I’m letting my clients know that I do see an acknowledge them. Who they are matters, and that I’m here to help.
Short Term (Solution-focused, etc.)
Ideal for those who are coming in with a specific problem they’d like to address and gain clarity on. Typically, short term therapies are present focused and do not dive deep into your past.
Structured therapies are goal and progress oriented. Therapists may incorporate psychoeducation and a specific “curriculum.” In order to stay on track, therapists may provide worksheets and homework.
Insight-oriented (Psychodynamic, Existential, etc.)
Exploring the past and making connections to present issues can help clients gain insight. Getting to the root of the issue and finding deeper self-awareness can help with long-term change.
Non-directive (Humanistic, Person-centered, etc.)
Going with the flow and seeing where it leads.
Behavioral (CBT, DBT, etc.)
Focuses on changing potentially unhealthy or self-destructive behaviors by addressing problematic thought patterns and specific providing coping skills.
Trauma Focused (EMDR, TF-CBT, etc.)
Recognizing the connection between trauma experiences and your emotional and behavioral responses, trauma focused therapy seeks to help you heal from traumas.
