About Me


Bare foot

Hello,

Mj here, let me introduce myself. I have been in the field of helping others for the past 17 years. I have worked as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and as a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor. I am also a Certified Life Coach and love the world of personal development. I enjoy what I do but I have to say I’ve become a little disillusioned with the process of therapy and even coaching to some degree. I definitely think there is a lot of value in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and I absolutely believe in the value of learning  Mindfulness Skills. I have been trained in some excellent therapeutic modalities  and have some amazing tools. However, I kept feeling like something was missing.

Why is it so difficult for people to change. How could I help people let go of self sabotaging behaviors. That thought took me on path to explore alternative therapies, and other healing modalities that worked on Body, Mind, and Spirit. I started to explore Energy Psychology, Energy Healing, the Law of Attraction, and even how our environment, the food we eat, our values affect our well being.

Moving Forward

As a result of my journey of looking for tools for healing both for my clients and let’s be honest for myself as well, (none of us has moved through this world unscathed), I have found some wonderful techniques for healing. My goal is to start to share these tools with you, give you some suggestions of how to incorporate them into your life and some links if you want to explore more. I do this everyday for the clients I work with, giving them the power to choose which strategies that they feel will work best for them. I don’t believe that there is a method that heals everyone, at least I haven’t found it yet, I am still looking.

More Recently On My My Journey

As I am learning more about alternative therapies, I have leaned more into using them in my practice. I am finding that we don’t need to talk about our past trauma to heal it. We do need some coping strategies to become more resiliant, but energy and healing work can provide a way through that is less intrusive and triggering than talk therapy.

I have become certified as a Reiki Master and have incorporated several different styles of Reiki into my practice including Karuna Ki Reiki and Crystal Reiki. I have also added Tameana which is a Crystal Healing Therapy, and I am a certifed Access Bars Practictioner.

You can learn about all these modalities on my site by clicking on the therapy above to go to the page or by going to the treatments page.

As I stated earlier, I don’t think talk therapy alone is always enough. I still incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness when I am working with clients because I believe they help us with coping on a daily basis. I also think that adding in Reiki, Tameana, Access Bars can be a great adjunct to therapy or just be very helpful on their own.

Conclusion

It seemed like a natural step for me to start to share some of theses tools on a larger scale which is why I developed this website. My ultimate purpose with this site is to empower you with choices around your own healing. To be able to let go of the past, the blocks that are keeping you stuck and to inspire you to find your purpose, your joy, and to live a life that you are excited about.

I would love for this to be an interactive site and would enjoy hearing about your experiences with any of the techniques I will be introducing, whether you experience them with me or somewhere else. Thanks for stopping by, read some of my blog posts, check out some of the freebies, let me know if you have any questions, and stay tuned for more to come.
