I operate within a particular scope of practice which is detailed on this page. This means that there are some mental health conditions and services I do not treat or offer in my office at Handcrafted Health. Why? Simply said, they are beyond my scope of practice requiring more resources than I have. I'd like you to know this information up front.
There are many mental health conditions and services related to mental health. There are some conditions that are optimally served by licensed professionals who specialize in them. Sometimes certain mental health conditions require a multidisciplinary team approach. In these cases, the healthcare team and the client are in a setting where a comprehensive treatment program of interventions and intensive care is available, either on-site or nearby.

Throughout this site you can learn about the populations I serve as well as my style and approach. This section covers it, too, but in an efficient and direct way.
In my private practice in my office, Handcrafted Health, I am authorized to provide services involving the application of counseling principles and methods in the diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and amelioration of psychological problems, emotional conditions, or mental conditions of individuals or groups.
At Handcrafted Health, I work with adults and elders providing individual psychotherapy and counseling, group therapy, coaching services and consulting services. When appropriate in the therapeutic process and in age appropriate ways, I will offer contemplative therapies and complementary therapies as well as art-making, music and journaling as clinically indicated.
At Handcrafted Health, I also work with adults and elders who solely seek contemplative therapies and complementary therapies, as a complement to their well care and prescribed recommended health regimen.
At Handcrafted Health, I also provide consultation services for parents, business owners and organizations who are interested in learning and integrating awareness of sensory processing sensitivity, the highly sensitive adult and child, the use of mindfulness practices, mind-body skills or complementary therapies such as Healing Touch and Energy Psychology.
At Handcrafted Health, I also present and speak to groups and organizations on a range of topics that are health and wellness related such as self-care, compassion fatigue, Healing Touch, mind-body coping skills, preventative therapy and complementary-integrative therapy.
Please note that counseling services and contemplative/complementary therapies are not intended to replace any currently prescribed medical treatments as ordered by your physician(s) or other medical doctors.
* Energy Psychology, Healing Touch, Reiki are considered biofield therapy, bio-energy therapy or energy therapy. Healing Touch and Reiki are considered mind and body practices by the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
