A bit about myself, my practice and my background:
I completed my M.Ed. in 2007 and was first licensed as mental health counselor, LMHC, in 2009 by the NBCC. In 2019 I earned Certified Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider, CMHIMP, through the Mental Health Integrative Medicine Institute. In 2023 I became a Usui Reiki Master.
My purpose in becoming a therapist was always to assist others to become active creators in their reality. This journey lead me to CBT which has a lot of measurable successes for many people. Through this work I always felt there was something missing. I was introduced to yoga and began to learn about the physical effects of trauma and how it is stored in the body. This lead me to more study, IFS and EMDR. Here I found the missing links to successful treatment and healing! We must release and balance the energetic body to heal! Once this connection was made for me I found Reiki. I was already studying herbs and had been using herbal tea blends to support clients through their journey to wellness, balance and peace. This is how Lifeforce Therapies emerged and continues to evolve and grow as do you and I.
This journey began 20+ years ago I have been blessed with the opportunity to continue to explore therapeutic treatments and holistic healing. Because of this continued exploration and openness my practice has evolved into a holistic, naturopathic, energetic approach to mental health. It is only by addressing the entirety of a situation/person can we truly get to the roots and heal from the inside out. This is the healing that will set you free.
Peter Mueller and I created LifeForce Rhythms, offering adult hand drumming classes and workshops, to share the experience and benefits of group drumming. Our goal is to integrate the learning, understanding and strengthening of therapeutic insight and skills into the already connective, communicative experience of drumming with others, and to have some fun!
