Mentorship & Consultation
Going into business for yourself can be exciting and the future can feel full of infinite potential.
It can also be nerve-wracking and can illuminate hidden fears, uncertainty, and patterns of relating that may not serve your best interest.
If you are a wellness professional and are dedicated to making the world a better place, you don’t have to sacrifice your own sanity in the process. Getting support from someone who’s been there can help you to clarify and navigate some of the potentially treacherous waters of the unknown.
With over fifteen years of experience in the field of mental health, I have been studying psychology for over two decades. My background includes working in agency settings in multiple roles as well as spending the last ten years maintaining my own thriving private practice in Asheville, NC. Prior to that, I spent ten years in the service industry, was a customer service specialist, and lead teams in a number of different settings.
I provide clinical consultation and mentorship for fellow psychotherapists, counselors, social workers, case managers, team leaders, peer specialists, teachers, and wellness professionals of all kinds.
Whether you would like extra support for a particular client or case, or you are interested in ongoing practice-building guidance, I can help. Getting an objective opinion can make all the difference.
If you are considering a career in mental health, starting by cultivating some basic skills in counseling and beginning to apply them can provide clarity as you decide what the right path is for you.
Mentorship & Consultation – Areas of Interest & Expertise:
Integrate techniques such as Active Imagination, Jungian Dreamwork, Guided or Spontaneous Imagery, Mindfuless Meditation, and Buddhist Psychology in your work with clients. Learn intuition-building practices for yourself or to share with your clients. Create rituals to mark sacred periods of time: beginnings, or endings.
Working in healthcare can be incredibly rewarding. Without the right tools for taking care of yourself, it can also be draining. Over time, the drain can lead to burn-out. While hot baths and massages can be soothing self-care, assertive communication, setting and holding boundaries, and making the best decisions for your lifestyle and business are skills that can keep you thriving and feeling fulfilled in your career for years to come.
Also known as slow-trauma, developmental or relational trauma, and attachment wounds, CPTSD is at the root of most DSM diagnoses. Challenging the cycle of negative thinking and a harsh Inner Critic, grieving the hurt, and Reparenting the Inner Child that was abused or neglected within are parts of the this healing process.
