I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I received a Master’s in Professional Counseling from Carlow University in Pittsburgh, PA and attained a Bachelor’s in Mental Health/Human Services from Franciscan University. I studied and became a Reiki Master/Teacher under Bonnie Hassan and I now practice and teach Reiki in the PA tri-state area. I am also a Certified Emotion Code practitioner under Dr. Bradley Nelson.
It is important to me that energy therapies like Reiki , Emotion Code and Emotional Freedom Therapy (EFT) be utilized in conjunction with traditional psychotherapy. I came to this belief as a result of my own experience. For years I attended traditional counseling and attempted to move past my own issues of anxiety and stress. I could only make progress to a certain point, but I still felt stuck! I was working on my Master’s degree and realized that I needed to find a way to move forward before I could go out there and help others! How would I help anyone if I could not receive help for my own struggles? I decided to see yet another therapist, but this person was very open to new therapies. She introduced me to Emotional Freedom therapy and soon after gave me a number to call for an Emotion Code practitioner. I was skeptical, but I was open to change. I was astonished and relieved to find that some alternative therapies were exactly what I had been needing to get past the stuck points, and to experience real change! After much time and effort in working on myself, I made the decision to receive training in these alternative therapies and use them in conjunction with traditional psychotherapeutic techniques to help others!
In therapy, I address the mind, body, and spirit of a person. Not just simply the mental part of the person.
