ABOUT

A Deeper Well

A Deeper Well is dedicated to empowering individuals to discover their own power in order to promote growth, flourish in community, and experience holistic healing, both inside and out. My vision is to awaken each individual's own power to heal from their past and grow in holistic wellness. Above all else, I value...

  • Empowerment to embrace authenticity in relationship with self and with others

  • Ongoing pursuit of self-knowledge, self-acceptance, and increased self-esteem

  • Increased self-awareness through mindfulness practices in all areas of life

  • Discovery of one's inner peace and spirituality, however that looks for them 

  • Cultivation of true community and support

Through A Deeper Well, I use a variety of mind-body connection, holistic approaches, and ways to access the subconscious in order to help guide individuals through their own healing and personal growth.

My Story

My mental health journey began over a decade ago while spending a year in the beautiful countryside of England. It was during a dark and rainy winter that I first experienced depression. Being far from home and without many resources available to me, I ultimately relied on  the holistic and natural healing modalities available to help get me through those dark days. 

In the years since, the depression has come and gone, often accompanied by anxiety and panic attacks. But ultimately it was after working with a Milwaukee non-profit organization that I decided to pursue a career in counseling. My time spent at this organization, learning about the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual impacts of poor mental health and  trauma , instilled a deep passion to help guide others in their own healing journeys. 

It wasn't long into my career that I began working with the subconscious mind - using hypnotherapy, meditations, and brainspotting to facilitate healing and growth. Having experienced profound growth in my own life through these modalities, I have also found great joy in witnessing my clients be transformed by the power of their own mind. 

As holistic healing and growth can be accomplished through many different paths, I have recently extended my offerings to include coaching, with additional offerings to be added in the future. My many interests and passions have shown me that true healing and growth must go beyond talk therapy - it must encompass every aspect of a person's mind, body, and spirit. 

My aim is to be a guide in healing and in growth of each of these areas - to help women reach their most authentic selves and to flourish in holistic wellbeing.

I would be honored to be a guide in your journey, helping you to discover your own abilities to heal and grow in self-empowerment!

Experience & Credentials

Rooted in a humanistic approach and influenced by Jungian and transpersonal psychology, I often use a combination of different approaches to best meet my client’s specific needs - both within counseling and coaching. With a holistic view and the therapeutic relationship as a foundation, sessions may include approaches such as hypnotherapy, meditation, mindfulness-based interventions, breathwork, Brainspotting, and different experiential modalities. Time with each client is focused on helping them to fully connect their mind and body while uncovering their full potential to navigate their own processing, healing, and growth. 

 

When beginning work with a new counseling client, I approach the therapeutic relationship from a trauma-informed and trauma-sensitive model. The first few sessions are frequently spent getting to know each other and exploring a variety of areas of the client’s life. Treatment approaches are then customized to best meet your individual needs, issues, and interests. Viewing each person from a holistic view, I focus on the relationship between mind, body, and spirit of each individual. 

 

My clinical experience has included working with children, adolescents, and adults with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and needs. Having worked with clients facing mood disorders, personality disorders, sexual issues, addictions, and symptoms related to trauma, I work with a wide range of emotional, relational, behavioral, sexual, and spiritual issues. I continually aim to pursue knowledge and the most current research within the trauma field, as well as in contemporary alternative medicines and other holistic healing approaches.
