By clearing away unhealthy mental and emotional patterns, you can heal the root cause of suffering and disease, and begin creating a life of greater happiness and peace.
The Process of Healing
There is a deeper flow to life than what most people experience on the surface of their lives. The mind, emotions, and body are only limited expressions of who we are. Who we are in our essence, is the consciousness that energizes these aspects of the human experience, and yet they do not define who we are. When your identity is tied up with what you think, feel, and your physical body, then you often feel a sense of limitation, doubt, anxiety, depression, and confusion. By learning to detach from the temporary world of form, you can return to the essence of who you are. This is done through meditation, mindful awareness practices, and deepening self-awareness. Though it can help to have guidance and support for this process (which is the service that i offer), it is not essential. All that is required is for you to become aware of, and to dissolve, these conditioned patterns of identifying with your mind, emotions, and body, allowing yourself to connect to who you are in your essence. There are numerous techniques and tools that you can employ on your journey back towards wholeness. As a holistic counselor, I offer guidance for meditation, healing visualizations, mindful awareness practices, breathing techniques, nutritional guidance, using positive affirmation and intention, and various other practices for dissolving limiting and negative patterns. The mind, body, and emotions are profoundly connected, and healing often occurs in each of these areas simultaneously when we have the intention to heal and bring ourselves into greater states of health and happiness.
When a person lets go of repressed emotional pain, for instance, it is not uncommon to experience healing from a physical disease that had previously seemed incurable. I experienced this firsthand through my own healing from emotional trauma and a physical disease I was challenged with for eight years. Conversely, when a person begins detoxifying and healing the body, it can often trigger a release of repressed emotions, and a consequent positive shift in the person’s perceptions of themselves and life. I discovered these tools of working with the mind, emotions, and body through my own healing journey, and have since shared this process in my book, Healing through Awakening.

Holistic Counseling, Spiritual Counseling, and Eckhart Tolle
There are simple principles that can begin to liberate you from negativity, doubt, and suffering. By understanding how the ego works, you can liberate yourself from limiting thoughts and feelings. It doesn’t happen overnight, but rather requires time and consistency to unravel much of the fear based conditioning that have caused most people to feel stuck in their lives. The teachings of Eckhart Tolle are a culmination of what many spiritual teachers have taught throughout the ages. By applying these simple principles in your life, you can transform how you experience yourself and life for the better.
Healing Energy Practices
As part of my holistic counseling and spiritual counseling practice, I offer guidance on the following processes; meditation, visualization, conscious nutrition, detoxifiation practices, mindful awareness techniques, breathing techniques, fasting, sungazing, mantra, intention setting, earthing, reconnecting with nature, sound healing, and neural reprogramming. You are the creator of your life, and by tuning into a lifestyle focused more around holistic health and spiritual growth, you can increase the happiness, joy, and peace that you experience in your day to day life.
Healing Through Nutrition and Detoxification
Living a life of balance and harmony is directly related to the kinds of foods that you consume. When you eat alive foods with a high amount of Life energy, this energy becomes your own. When you eat a diet that is filled with processed foods, and foods that are “dead” (meaning that a good amount of time has passed since they were actually growing in the ground), then your body has to work much harder to digest and assimilate the nutrients from these foods. My book, “Healing through Awakening,” is a comprehensive guide for the process of healing the mind, emotions, and body through right diet, nutrition, and energy practices.

Gut Health and Mental Health
An emerging field of science, called neurogastroenterology, studies the relationship between the gut and the brain, seeking to understand how the two interact. The emerging science shows profound connections between gut health and neurological functioning. It has been estimated that roughly 80% of your body’s total serotonin production occurs in the gut, as well as roughly 75% of your body’s total immune cell production. The emerging model for holistic health places gut health as a foundational element of overall mental and emotional health. Healing the intestinal lining, and leaky gut, then, become paramount in as natural treatments for depression, and natural treatments for anxiety.
Becoming a Holistic Counselor
I often get asked how I got into this field, and how to become a holistic therapist. Holistic Counseling is a great career path for anyone who wants to help others heal, find greater meaning in their lives, and live more fully from their hearts. While there are many different programs that can prepare a person for doing this type of work, the real determining factor for a person’s success is a true appreciation for the holistic nature of reality. Everything is connected. I often guide people to begin understanding the interconnectedness of life first (within themselves, and the world around them) as a primary focus before thinking about degrees or credentials. To really help another person return to a holistic way of living means to really understand your own connection between mind, emotions, and body first. We can only help another heal to the degree in which we have first helped ourselves heal.
