Therapeutic Interventions

The therapeutic Interventions that I most commonly use, but are not limited to include:

Integrative Therapy (John Norcross)  Integrative counselling, as the name suggests, is a combined approach to psychotherapy that brings together different elements of specific therapies with the view that there is no single approach that can treat each client in all situations. These may include Person-Centered, Behavioral and Mind, Body Spirit Awareness. Cognitive Behavior Therapy may help to challenge limiting thoughts and beliefs and to develop skills to create more positive, adaptive behaviors. 

Strengths Based (Donald Clifton) Strength-based therapy is a type of positive psychotherapy and counseling that focuses more on your internal strengths and resourcefulness, and less on weaknesses, failures, and shortcomings. A positive mindset helps you build on your best qualities, find your strengths, improve resilience and change your worldview to one that is more positive. 

Mind Body Mindfulness (Jon Kabatt Zinn, Joe Dispenza) Conscious awareness of your thoughts, feelings and actions in your mind and body in the present moment that may hinder forward movement in life. Development of skills such as breath work to meet these feelings with openness and non-judgment about the experience and may help to reduce stress and increase physical and emotional health.

Eco Therapy (Theodore Roszak)  Stems from the belief that humans are part of the web of life and emotional well being is tied to our connection with nature. Exploring one’s relationship with nature may help reduce stress and mental fatigue, help with being present, increase positive emotions and may help with mental clarity. Personal well being and the health of the planet helps to develop an awareness that we are part of a greater system and that we are important within the whole system. This may include walking sessions outside if you find movement and nature healing. 

Shamanic Counseling (Michael Harner, Sandra Ingerman)  Shamanism is an ancient healing tradition and way of life. Shamanic teachings focus on our connection to nature and all of creation.

Integration of drumming and deep mediation for discovering greater awareness of the internal self in relationship with the external world.
