I obtained a Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling and Psychological Services (4.0 GPA) and am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Arizona (License # 18591) and Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of Massachusetts (license # 9883). I am a Level 3 Internal family Systems Certified Therapist and Consultant and a Certified EMDR Therapist and Consultant in training (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). I specialize in the treatment of anxiety disorders and trauma recovery. I was an active board member at the NESTTD (New England Society for the Treatment of Trauma and Dissociation) for several years.
Trained originally, as a molecular biologist, I completed my Ph.D in France and then came to the United States to lead a project in cancer research at the Children’s Hospital Boston in collaboration with Harvard University. Seeing the suffering of patients, I realized that their suffering was not only physical but also psychological and spiritual. During my long recovery from a car accident, I reassessed my life. I felt called to help people more directly by addressing the physical, psychological and spiritual aspects of their lives.
My long term practice of insight meditation and my gift as an empath and energy healer increase my ability to attune to clients and guide them through the process of unburdening deeply rooted emotional issues, so that they can reach their full potential in their lives.
I have also been trained and have been facilitating for years groups of group spiritual direction and can help you on your spiritual journey by helping you develop a personal relationship to the divine, however you might define it.
I am looking forward to meeting you and welcoming you at Inner Guidance Counseling LLC/Tryad Counseling and Healing Center LLC to share with you my approach to real healing and help you thrive in your life.
