Hello, Mj here, I wanted to introduce myself. I have been in the field of helping others for the past 16 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 love 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 a journey into the world of Body, Mind, and Spirit, and what does that really mean? I started to explore Energy Psychology, the Law of Attraction, and even how our environment, the food we eat, our values affect our well being.
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 am always doing this for my clients, giving them the power to choose which strategies that they feel will work best for them. I don’t believe that there is a strategy that heals everyone, at least I haven’t found it yet, I am still looking.
More About My Journey
As I have moved through the years I have had many of my own challenges and have leaned more into the realm of healing using alternative therapies. I have become certified as a Reiki Master and have incorporated several different styles of Reiki into my practice including Karuna Ki Reiki and working with crystals.
I have also delved into the world of past life regression and although I am not deeply into the world of Access Consciousness I have become certifed as an Access Bars Practictioner. Please see the separate pages on all of these modalities.
As I stated earleir 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, Access Bars can be a great adjunct to therapy or just be very helpful on their own.
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 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. Some of the techniques will be things that I have a lot of experience with and some will be techniques that I have just dabbled in, so feedback will be helpful for me and anyone else checking things out on this site. 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.
