"You find yourself stuck. Maybe you’ve tried psychotherapy before. Maybe you’ve tried rehab. Maybe you’ve struggled to just get out of bed and find the courage to face the day. Maybe you know something isn’t right but you just don’t know what to do. Or what’s wrong. We can figure it out together. The very first and most important step is to admit right now your life isn’t working and you need tools to cope. "

"Are you struggling with substances but feel “rehab” isn’t right for you? You don’t need to leave your job or family for a month to find the help you need. Addiction is tough: that compulsion to go back and do the same thing over and over, even though you know it's destroying your life... You feel fear, anxiety, failure, worthlessness, humiliation, contempt... You've tried to break the 'habit', get your control back, but just when you start feeling some success you stumble, and you're back in the same hole again. Breaking your substance abuse alone is not as simple as it sounds. Counseling may be more effective for you than rehab."

"Past failures, poor decisions and missed opportunities result in feeling unforgiving towards ourself and cynical about life. Drugs, alcohol or other problematic behaviors may have been a source of coping but we have realized that the problems are still there and sometimes get worse. Learn about your addiction and you will learn about yourself. Making changes in our life begins by recognizing that changes need to occur. Our old ways of coping are no longer effective. Working with the right therapist can help you learn and apply new and adaptive coping skills to identify and maintain a life worth living."

"I specialize in treating panic attacks and other anxiety related issues including social anxiety, generalized anxiety, OCD, and phobias. I have found that a mindfulness based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approach is the best way to manage these issues. CBT states that our unhelpful thoughts lead to our emotional distress and unproductive behaviors. Mindfulness is a state of open and nonjudgmental awareness of the present moment. By cultivating mindfulness, we are able to become aware of our unhelpful and unproductive thoughts as they happen and apply the tools used in CBT to dispute and replace them with helpful, productive thoughts."

"Change is constant. Whether with work, personal relationships, or society in general, everything is always changing, evolving - moving forward. Sometimes the tools or thoughts we use to cope with the ever-changing situations are out dated and leave us feeling frustrated, fearful, or even overwhelmed. In recognizing this, it is time to update our thoughts and coping skills so we can move forward and grow away from fears, low self esteem, or "stuck" feelings. Hypnosis is a safe, effective Holistic tool, with a positive approach to overcoming the fears/challenges holding you back from the success you desire and deserve."
