In your opening session with me, we will meet to discuss your life, needs, and my ability to guide you. This can mean speaking about the past, present, future or anything you wish. We can discuss your hopes, goals, and desires and how you can navigate toward achieving whatever you've set out to. I am here to be a coach, guide, counselor and helper on your journey. Some of the methods I may suggest to help you include:
• Holistic practices (e.g. meditation, breathing exercises, guided imagery)
• Alternative medical approaches (Reiki, essential oil therapy, herbal supplements)
• Dis-ease remedies (nutrition, exercise, sleep therapies)
• Cognitive-behavioral therapy
• Spiritual, mental support
Overall, our first meeting will be getting to know each other and an opportunity to assess if holistic guidance is the right approach to bettering your quality of life. I'm excited to meet you and begin a new journey...together!
Though most people love an entertaining drama in an action packed novel or movie, the reality of conflict in the day-to-day lives of real people is a far cry from entertainment, especially for those who are in the midst of some personal challenge or pitfall in their lives.
Research shows that stress is a contributing factor in numerous common conditions and dis-ease. Choosing holistic therapy is a practice for both enlightened individuals and those seeking a new understanding of their health, becoming better attuned to their entire awareness: body, mind, and soul. This often promotes greater acceptance of oneself; by understanding and treating symptoms holistically, you and your body are able to find a new, healthful balance. Holistic guidance incorporates the conscious of clients in their totality; they take an integrative approach to healing the mind. Their work takes them into the multiple dimensions of human experience; the physical, the spiritual and the psychological. Ultimately, they seek to heal by helping their clients to break free from destructive behaviors and enjoy a new and improved state of mental, spiritual and physical health.
Holistic Guidance is an approach that helps individuals whom are seeking to heal or move through personal barriers in life by taking the entire human being (body, mind, soul) and their life experience into consideration. Traditional counseling methods consider psychological ramifications and have a tendency to be focused (though not always so) on either picking apart one’s past for healing, focusing on present moments, and/or future goal setting. In holistic guidance, my approach is a culmination of past, present and future, examined through the lense of mindfulness and the practice of holistic health. Your health is about your complete person, not just your mind, your past, or your future! Your health is today and encompasses ALL of unique and beautiful YOU.
A holistic approach to your body, mind, and soul cannot only transform your health and well being, it can: benefit your relationships, increase your patience, understanding, love and generally aid you in becoming more present in your day-to-day life. By learning to detach from the temporary world of form, you can return to the essence of who you are. Through meditation, mindful awareness practice, TFT ( Thought Field Therapy ) Reiki, and deepening self-awareness, including practices such as breathing technique, nutritional awareness, positive affirmations, intentions and various other practices, you will gain a new grasp of yourself and your life. At D.N.A., we understand that if you don't take control of your life, it will control you!
Working with the body can refer to nutrition, exercise, sleep, herbs and alternative medical approaches as well as other holistic practices, such as meditation and breathing techniques. As a part of healing your body, it may be suggested that you begin or alter one or more of these practices. As you may have noticed within your reading, the spelling of the word “dis-ease”: this term in the holistic community simply means a lack of ease or harmony within the body. There are many remedies for dis-ease of the body that you can learn, use, and heal with.
For the mind, in my practice, I most often study/utilize cognitive behavioral therapy; this means looking at how thoughts affect behavior. Cognitive therapy focuses on present thinking, behavior, and communication rather than on past experiences and is oriented toward problem solving. This is not to say that your past is not important, but knowing that your past led to the present you. I am happy to work with you in whatever way I can to help you to feel entire wellness.
Spirituality is critical to mental health and a positive worldview... I believe it's a connection to a greater something. It's about a push to transcend your personal boundaries, having a sense of meaning and purpose. Now, I'm not implying you have to be religious - an atheist is spiritual if, for example, she/ he feels connected to the wider world and shares love and compassion with groups of people. Spirituality is simply connecting with someone or something greater than yourself, and I am open to any and all forms of spirituality.
At D.N.A ., we want you to have an understanding of what holistic guidance is all about. Holistic guidance is a profession that is profoundly different from consulting,mentoring,therapy or counseling. Each session is tailored to each individuals needs. No two sessions are the same; the guidance process addresses specific personal projects, business successes, general conditions and transitions in a client’s personal life including relationships and professions, by examining what is going on right now. In this examination, we will discover what your obstacles or challenges might be and choose, together, a course of action to attain the best for you in your life. The relationship between you and Dee is designed to be an alliance. Dee will be continually giving all the power back to you, the client. D.N.A believes that you already have the answers to questions or challenges you may have in your life, even if those answers seem obscured, concealed or hidden inside. Most holistic guidance clients are healthy, successful people who might be a bit stuck or simply want to make a change in their lives and want the support of their own personal holistic coach to do so. Some people seek holistic guidance when they are down and out, as a last ditch effort after trying seemingly everything; the spectrum of those seeking holistic guidance is as broad and unique as the individuals seeking help. Holistic guidance can help you learn how to make choices that create an effective, balanced, and fulfilling life, as long as you are willing to do the work on yourself, for yourself. I'm here to be an advocate, guide, and be as much “for you” as you are for yourself

I have been having some problems in my relationship with my lover. I had been looking for someone to help me and my partner. My partner and I want to make our relationship work but we needed someone outside of our circle. That's when I found Dr. Dee. My partner and I were nervous about our visit with the Dr. We had tried counselling before but we felt judged for our lifestyle. So when I came across her website I thought to myself. I've never tried holistic counselling,I have always taken the traditional way.But we felt we had exhausted all traditional methods. My partner and I decided to give Dr. Dee a try. As soon as she walked up to us she gave me and my partner an embracing sincere hug she has a present about her that is very comforting and soothing. She looked into both me and my partner and said in a calm and loving demeanor “welcome are you ready to begin healing your body mind and soul my loves?” I looked at my partner whos eyes filled with tears at that moment we knew we had found the person to help us thru our personal hurdles. Thank you Dr. Dee for being a loving neutral conduct for us. You showed us how to look at things in a manner thru love, respect and class…

I have been seeing Dee off and on for the last 7 years. I try to schedule at least two apts a year with her. As Dr. Dee call them yearly tune ups. I'm a very busy woman single mother of three full time businesswoman with what some may call a prominent business position. So with that being said my time is limited. With the hustle and bustle of my life I can tend to get off track with certain areas of my life. Dee helps me to see where I need to go to get back to where I want to be. Thanks Doc! You know I love ya!!

I was going through a rough time in my life, trying to figure out what was the root cause of why I was feeling so overwhelmed and exhausted. I was unable to find balance in my personal life, work, spending quality time with family.. I went in with an open mind and spent two hours with Dee. It was life changing for me. Dee is so welcoming, caring, and I knew she truly cared about wanting to help me get through this rough time. Dee helped me map out my life and prioritize what was most important to me. I left that day feeling excited because she helped me solidify where my pain was coming from and once I was able to change it the rest of the puzzle pieces fell into place. I will never forget the impact Dr.Dee had on me that day and I am so thankful to have her in my life.

You have a remarkable mission and it so admirable that you have been brave enough to listen to your calling and go fourth with it by sharing it with the world.It's an honor to be a part of your mission. I say mission because once you meet her you too will notice she is an earth angel. I'm so very grateful for your wisdom and guidance throughout the last 3 years. Lol My teenagers say thank you as well..

Seeing Dee was life changing for me. I went to her originally needing guidance to sort out some emotional issues affecting my business. while sorting out my issues with the business she helped me to realize it was also seeping into my personal life. I was not expecting to work in this area of my life as well. But we did, I was hesitent at first but Dee Has a presence about her that is patient, grounding and clear. She listen to what I had to say. Her positive energy has helped me to make choices from a place of optimism instead out of fear.

Something Dr. Dee doesn't advertise is her intuition...She explained energy to me. She has an ability to look at things thru a loving neutral space. I am very grateful to her for this. Namaste Doc!! You are truly an angel on earth.
Holly | Gunnison, Colorado
Let me start off by saying before I met Dr. Dee I did not believe in the holistic arena….I assumed it was hokey. I've seen the “readers” at fairs and what not and gotten a reading here and there over the years but never was anything said that wowed me until I spoke with Dr. Dee. She tapped into things from my family history that NO ONE knew! When I asked my 90 year old grandmother for some confirmation and my grannie says “ How the hell did she know that”?! I was hooked and started seeking Dee for her healing aspects as well as the readings that have really helped me piece together some family secrets
Nino Miceli | Pueblo, Colorado
I have come to her with dreams, problems, and for advice; every time I've needed her, she has been there...Dee did Reiki on me one day when I had severe back pain. Her energy is unbelievable...I never knew someone could be healing like that. And there's so much more she is capable of...don't hesitate. If you feel ‘a pull’ to her, it's the right direction! Go with it.

You are ultimately responsible for all you choices and all decisions in your life. In order to fully treat a multidimensional being to the benefit of their entire health, holistic counseling can and should be used (in non-emergency and non-life-threatening situations) either in place of or in conjunction with conventional forms of therapy and traditional Western medicine; thusly, healing the panoply, made up of the body, mind, emotions and spirit, of the person. In order to treat a person holistically, options outside of traditional treatment methodologies, for both assessment and treatment, can and should be consulted.
