What is the Chiral Center?

Meaning of Chiral Center

The Chiral (Ky-ral) Center is a term often used in chemistry to refer to the point, or center, around which a molecule reflects. The easiest way to think about it, is with your hands. You have two hands, but they are not the same, they are reflections of each other. At Chiral Center Counseling, our services will reflect in your improved quality of life.

A Bit About Me

About Me

My empowerment strategies draw from several theories of psychology to examine the root causes of undesired behaviors or promoting new behaviors. My clients are viewed from a holistic perspective in order to promote insight and connections on the path to self-fulfillment.

You may not know it, but grief, trauma, rejection, abandonment, and more could be holding you back from living your most fulfilling life. Let’s process the hurt. I am specially trained to help assist in understanding your past in order to embrace your future. Using various strategies such as Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Equine-assisted, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Attachment Therapy, as well as Mindfulness strategies including yoga and meditation, I can tailor a counseling experience to meet your goals.

I am committed to providing a non-judgemental environment that will carefully yet firmly assist you to reach your goals. My background is very diverse and includes overcoming several types of cancer, multicultural competence, alliance with LGBTQIA+, and celebrated successes as an entrepreneur. I urge you to reach out and make time for your needs today.

In my spare time, I am a mother, a cancer warrior, and a successful entrepreneur who also teaches a little yoga to young and old. In my free time, I can be found out skating with my daughter, snowboarding with my husband, and giving snuggles to my two dogs: Quincy the Dorgi and Kota the Corgi. I might even have a collection/obsession with Baby Yoda.
