Approach to Therapy
lu·mi·nous: Full of or shedding light, bright or shining, especially in the dark. Emitting light, especially emitting self-generated light. Intellectually brilliant. Clear, readily understood.
Luminous Therapy is about finding ways to activate your inherent light to illuminate the truth of who you are. Your therapy journey begins in a safe, supportive and non-judgmental environment where you can explore how you want to grow and improve your life. My passion is to help you find an experience of your Self that is full of love, confidence and resiliancy; linking you to your strengths and repairing any outdated beliefs that keep you locked in an unhelpful self-image. If you are feeling ready for change, I can help you with tools to release the past and manifest your dreams into reality. My approach honors your worldview and strengths as well as your expressed goals and pace in the healing process. I believe that an experience of Wholeness in the mind/body/spirit connection is an essential part of the healing process. Together, we can explore ways to improve your ability to be more Present with yourself and others, identify your deeper purpose, and move into your power.
FOR COUPLES: I am committed to helping you both strive for more harmony, communicate with more kindness and effectiveness, make structural changes in relationship and family patterns, and face difficult decisions in a safe, protected space. My preferred methods of Psychotherapy include: Transpersonal, Holistic, Cognitive Behavioral, Humanistic, EMDR, Energy Psychology & Meditation/Visualization/Relaxation techniques. I am deeply committed to the overall health of my clients, and I welcome the opportunity to coordinate my client's care with other health-care professionals.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, with a Master's Degree from California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, California. CIIS provided me with a wealth of knowledge and experiential learning in Eastern and Western Philosophy, Religion and Psychology. This has greatly informed the way that I practice therapy, seeing each person's story, struggle and journey through the eyes of a Holistic and Integrative perspective.
With over 20 years of providing therapy services to clients in California and Oklahoma, I have additional certification in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), and specialize in treating PTSD, Anxiety, Mood Disorders and Relationship Issues. I also have extensive experience in meditation and energy psychology. My training has allowed me to teach my Clients various ways to enhance a traditional psychotherapy process by involving their spiritual strengths in the process. My office is located in Norman, Oklahoma, I am currently providing virtual sessions online for Clients throughout Oklahoma. The online therapy option adds convenience to those of you who travel, live far from my office, or just want to have sessions from the privacy of your own home.
