I chose the nautilus shell for the name and image of my practice due to the strength, resiliency, and growth it represents.
The nautilus shell is compartmentalized and can be divided into as many as 30 chambers. As the shell grows, the nautilus moves its body forward into the newest and largest chamber. As it does this, the shell also puts up a wall to seal off the smaller and older chambers, which become gas chambers that help the animal float when needed. When you look at the cross-section of the nautilus shell, you will see how it is arranged in a precise way known as the Golden Ratio spiral based on the Fibonacci sequence or the sacred geometry. The Fibonacci sequence is a geometric symbol that resonates across nature and through various spiritual traditions around the world, defined as a spiral, or a series of spirals.
"This sequence is so astounding and important because it acts as a map for spiritual growth. We start in the beginning, where we begin to understand that our actions have reactions. To gain the knowledge of where we disconnected and how to move on helps us to spiral out. We must challenge ourselves in situations to grow."
I see an array of clients, however I primarily conduct individual therapy, with adjunct family sessions as indicated. I utilize a holistic approach in our work together, utilizing the body and mind to guide us to your overall mental health goals. My main role as your therapist is to facilitate growth and change so you can achieve the greatest version of yourself.
Taking the first step is often the hardest. Here at Nautilus, I believe that therapy is not a one size fits all. I meet each and every client where they are and formulate techniques and approaches around your goals.
My specialities include:
I am trained in the following treatment modalities and will tailor my approach to your needs based on evidence-based treatment.
