Individual Sessions

  • Do you feel stuck and unable to reach your goals?

  • Are you tired of talking only about what isn’t working?

  • Do you want to take action that creates change?

  • Are you ready to transform your life?

I offer individual counseling that integrates Energy Medicine, Energy Psychology techniques, and Sound Healing with problem solving and solution building to overcome the obstacles preventing you from reaching your goals.


What happens when we meet?

When you come in for a session, you may have a specific issue you want to address. Once we’ve defined your concern, I’ll ask which therapeutic methods you might like to try. It’s always your decision whether and when to use a specific approach in a given session. Some options:

Energy Psychology

Energy Psychology (EP) therapy releases and restores natural patterns of energy flow within the body. Techniques include:


  • tapping* on acupuncture points

  • holding chakras and other physical points that access the energy body

  • repeating verbal affirmations

I draw on a variety of EP approaches, including:

I can also offer guidance for using EP methods on your own, between sessions.

Energy Medicine


Energy Medicine (EM) techniques include tapping, guided breathing, and gentle touch* on specific areas of the body. Some effects of EM include:

  • mental and physical relaxation

  • increased calm

  • ease and freedom

  • decreased pain

  • improved mental focus

  • heightened creativity


A couple of the techniques I often use with clients (follow along with the videos below):

Sound Healing


Sound Healing is a form of therapy that uses audio vibrations to restore the body’s healthy vibration. To achieve this, I use a tuning forks and chimes, each vibrating at a single pure frequency. With head phones or ear buds, you will be able to hear the tones over Zoom.


Integrated Approach


Sometimes I’ll use Sound Healing while simultaneously guiding you through either an Energy Psychology or Energy Medicine practice. Similarly, I may combine Sound Healing treatment with therapeutic conversation.

I also provide Sound Healing sessions that are not integrated with psychotherapy.
