Blooming Lotus Counseling, LLC provides a non-judgmental and compassionate space to explore and improve your emotional health, coping skills, and management of mental health and/or substance use challenges. My primary areas of expertise are stress management, trauma, anxiety and mood disorders (see additional specialties below). Blooming Lotus Counseling, LLC also offers unique approaches that address the mind-body connection as a part of the counseling experience. Psycho-educational, individual, and group counseling services are provided to adults ages 18 and older.
Just like the lotus flower that grows up through the mud and murky waters to transform and thrive, counseling can help you persist through the muddy parts of life. I believe every human possesses inner strengths and abilities to adapt and grow. Sometimes it takes an objective individual with knowledge, understanding, and insight to help you uncover and expand these. We will work collaboratively to identify personal strengths, coping skills, and effective tools that will help you generate positive changes.
Our sessions will utilize evidence based approaches such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Mind-Body Therapies. For those interested in addressing the mind-body connection techniques will include: yoga, mindfulness, breathing techniques, meditation, and relaxation skills. Please see additional pages for further details regarding therapeutic approaches. Each session is tailored to your specific needs, beliefs, values, personality, and therapeutic goals.
I moved to the beautiful state of Colorado five years ago after falling in love with the mountains and all the beauty and adventure they have to offer. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT), and have EMDR Level II status. My career began in the Midwest where I obtained a Bachelor Arts Degree in Psychology from Miami University and a Master of Arts Degree in Community Counseling from Xavier University. My work experience in both Ohio and Colorado has led to over ten years of providing psycho-educational, prevention, and counseling services in both individual and group settings.
I am passionate about counseling and consider it a privilege to have individuals share their stories and struggles with me. My 10+ years of experience and professional training have instilled the ability to work with a majority of counseling issues. Some areas of specialty additional to those mentioned previously are: Grief and Loss, Interpersonal Relationships, Self-Esteem, Substance Use, Bi-polar, and Eating Disorders. I truly value being a part of someone learning, growing, changing, and healing. I look forward to the opportunity to join you on your journey toward peace, growth, and healing.
