Psychotherapy and Counseling: Dr. Paradis has over 30 years of experience in providing psychotherapy and counseling to individuals, groups, families, and couples. Using a variety of approaches and techniques that are grounded in psychodynamic theory, cognitive processes, and intuition, her soul-directed approach is a blend of traditional talk therapies, ancient wisdom and practices, and modern technologies that assist the individual in restoring harmony among body, mind, and spirit. Techniques used may include cognitive behavior therapy, ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), guided imagery, symbolic acts, meditation, shamanic journeying, subtle energy work, hypnosis, audio-visual stimulation, and meta-music.
Psychological and Nueropsychological Evaluations: Evaluations are usually requested by physicians, psychotherapists, attorneys, insurance companies, employers, schools, social agencies, parents, or individuals for a specific purpose. Specific testing instruments are selected on a case-by-case basis depending on the nature of the referral question. The testing is done over the course of one or two long sessions, and reports are usually completed within two weeks.
Consultation: Consultation to schools, social service agencies, corporations, organizations, and families is available on a contractual basis. Conflict resolution and team building are among the various services available on a short-term or on-going basis.
Educational Programs: We are available to do educational programs, workshops, and lectures to private groups, schools and organizations on a variety of topics. The most frequently requested topics include the following:
Pain Management: Cognitive approaches and shamanic healing techniques are used to help individuals manage pain by changing their experience of it, raising their tolerance level, and minimizing the pain – in some cases eliminating it completely.
Personal Growth: We assist individuals who want to improve their quality of life, enhance their intuition, and work toward achieving their greatest emotional and spiritual potential.
Peak Performance Training: Using a variety of modalities including guided imagery, audio-visual stimulation, and meta-music, we can help individuals improve their physical performance in sports as well as their cognitive and emotional performance in a variety of situations.
Supervision: Dr. Paradis provides supervision to mental health providers who wish to enhance their foundation in clinical practice and strengthen their personal stamina so they can meet their clients at the soul level - to clearly hear their stories, their sufferings, their hopes, their joys - to help them navigate their soul's journey with clarity and intention. Dr. Paradis views supervision as support for the therapist's own soul journey. She engages the supevisee in developing mindfulness, compassion, intuition, insight, and other modalities to develop creative strategies for specific aspects of the clients' journey.
