About

I believe that the relationship between me and my "special friend" facilitates growth and healing. I offer a COMPLIMENTARY FIRST SESSION to see if we can take a meaningful journey together. My goal in therapy is to help individuals develop a more positive self-image, increase self-esteem, and reach their full potential. I help the people I work with to identify their needs and increase their ability to communicate their needs and feelings to others - thereby developing more loving relationships. This will lead to a more satisfying and fulfilling life.
Unlike many therapists who see their patients with pathology I have a positive approach and see individuals as having patterns of behavior that are self-defeating and cause unhappiness.I use a humanistic and "positive psychology" approach and, when indicated,I incorporate hypnosis to facilitate a shorter course of therapy.
I believe mind, body, & spirit are intertwined.I train physicians and psychologists in the use of hypnosis and am a consultant to the film & entertainment industry.I enjoy helping people unlock their creative potential not limited to writers, actors,& artists. I believe that everyone has creativity that lies dormant.
