My name is Skye, I specialize in Trauma Informed Life Coaching and Counseling, with a holistic and integrative approach to healthcare services and therapy by focusing on the unity of mind, body, and spirit, through meditation, mindfulness, emotion regulation, Reiki, ThetaHealing, and holistic essential oil remedies.
I am a wife and mom to 2 great kids. I hold a BS in Social Psychology with emphasis in Clinical and Abnormal Psychology, a MS in Psychology with emphasis in Life Coaching, and a Post-Master of Science in Counseling with emphasis in Trauma Recovery. In 2017 I became a small business owner of Love and Light Therapy, LLC.
I love seeing the beauty of life in even the smallest of things. The sunshine, rippling waters, fragrant flowers, and cool sea breeze keep me grounded and alive. I love painting and reading, being outdoors and laughter. I choose to continue my educational pursuits so that I may share the knowledge and healing that comes with the merging of academia and experience. I live in Happy Valley, Oregon, just outside of Portland.
I dream of one day opening an outdoor camp facility for adults and children struggling with PTSD and CPTSD due to highly traumatic experiences. Encompassing one on one therapy, therapeutic group activities like music, art, caring for support animals, and outdoor therapy which will help clients recenter and ground themselves. There have been many studies that discuss the therapeutic value and personal growth that occurs when distressed individuals can reconnect with themselves through nature. In addition to this, I will also provide skills training through dialectical and cognitive behavioral therapy (DBT and CBT) so that they are able to re enter their life prepared to overcome the triggers that bring the trauma back to the forefront of the mind and body.
