I am a Professional Effective, Caring, Licensed Clinical Social Worker,Diplomat in National Association of Social Worker's, Board Certified Fellow on the National Board of Certified Clinical Hypnotherapists, Minister of Spiritual Counseling, Certified Thought Field Therapist and Reiki Master
All we do is discuss you, oftentimes your unconscious, subconscious, higher conscious, and how that may affect your life and goals and then your appropriate Treatment or Counseling.
Some of my clients come into my office saying I am their last alternative, when in reality I should be their first. Many of them took medicines they were allergic and had operations, that later they realized, hurt them. All I do is Counsel and present other alternatives, not harmful at all ,that actually work, many, almost immediately.
Though psychotherapy is thought to be, and often times is, the best tool in the toolbox, and the one used by most of us in the field, often, there are other alternatives. Everyone is an individual, what works for one person may not be suitable for another. Therefore we offer Traditional as well as Alternative Modalities such as Psychotherapy, Alternative Healing, Christian & Spiritual Counseling, and Hypnosis.
These, some, almost miraculous, techniques are other posiibilities to consider. For some, the outcomes of these alternative treatment methods could be even more successful. Sometimes only one or two sessions are needed. For others Counseling alone is enough.
This is your being, your body, your mind, you need to determine what it needs for your happiness, health and perfect self expression. You need to take care of it. Sometimes Counseling is the instructions you need.
Rev. Lorraine Blum LCSW, Msc, NBCCH, RM, TFTdx, EFT
Psychotherapy is a course in self exploration. Our minds do not come with instructions, psychotherapy is just that, the insight and the instructions. This clears the way for our journey through life.
Traditionally trained I felt I needed more.
After completion of my theology coursework and graduating I enrolled in a new program they offered called
"Physician of the Soul"
As part of that curriculum I was asked to study and become certified in one of the energy modalities, or healing techniques. I later became Certified as a Minister of Spiritual Counseling and Reiki Master. Reiki which, like Acupuncture, is now accepted in most hospitals.
Here you have a choice. Traditional, alternative or both.

Another of the more popular Energy Modalities is EFT.
(EFT falls under the umbrella of Energy Psychology, like Reiki, a psychotherapeutic approach that integrates established clinical practices with somatic methods derived from the various healing traditions of Eastern cultures. A recent randomized controlled study (soon to be published in the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease has shown EFT to lower cortisol-related stress levels and self-reported psychological symptoms after a single session,) especially with phobia and PTSD.
Psychotherapy is a Course in Self
