Are you concerned about your
use of alcohol, drugs, or other substances?
I am not a licensed drug counselor or mental health practitioner. But as an EFT practitioner and hypnotherapist,
I can help you get clarity about the issues that make you anxious and unhappy. (These are the issues that trigger you to use something to calm yourself down so you aren't in that edgy, uncomfortable place.)
Once you see these issues with new perspective, I can help you explore and choose new options to make yourself happier and more fulfilled.
In a few sessions, you will have a new set of coping skills that are truly wonderful and that have no harmful side effects. Let's heal the emotional parts of you that hunger to be healed!
Feeling calmer and more balanced will make your life a new experience.
Besides, we need you here in tip-top shape, functioning and creative, so you can help us do good things for the planet and our fellow beings!
If you think you might be over-using and would like to chat, please contact me. I work from
a harm reduction perspective, which is not 12-step at all. (If
you like the 12-step approach, working with me can greatly help you work your program.)
With harm reduction, I provide help whether you want to quit, reduce your use, or perhaps continue to use but in a safer
way that has fewer negative repercussions for your health and life responsibilities.
I honor the choices you have before you and the ones you haven't yet recognized, as they are truly yours to make.
I can help you create a plan so your life is a better place. If you wish, I'll help you along the path.
"I called Melinda after a traumatic incident in my life and she was kind enough to set up an appointment for me that very day. I went to her lovely little office in Atwater where I found her to be incredibly warm, empathetic, smart, and open. Her methods may be viewed as somewhat unconventional--she uses EFT, which involves lightly tapping on acupressure points while talking--but they work. From the very first session I felt noticeably better, and people even commented that I seemed more 'at peace.'
I continue to see Melinda regularly and have found her invaluable. In addition to energy healing, she is very knowledgeable about issues related to addiction, and uses a variety of techniques that help to get at the root of the problem in a nonthreatening way. I am trained as a therapist and have been in traditional therapy, and I know that Melinda is one of those unique people who are able to facilitate healing on a deeper level.
If you're reading this review, you're probably contemplating whether or not you should give Melinda's services a try--stop wondering, and set up an appointment! You will be very glad you did!" K. F.
