"Transformation will occur to you at a right timing with a right support. I am here for you to support your transformation. I will help enhance your innate ability to break patterns, utilizing cognitive, nervous & energetic methods. For instance, you have had a car accident before. You feel anxious whenever you see cars on the street. This means that the car accident is associated with the anxiety. I will help disconnect the anxiety from the car accident while rebuilding positive experiences in you. You will gradually re-associate the car accident with the positive experiences, transforming the old pattern."

"Have you experienced events in your life that left you feeling scared, worried, and fearful about your safety and the future? If so, you may be suffering from trauma. As a trauma-focused practitioner, I have assisted children, teens, and adults in building resilience, finding hope, and improving their relationships with others. Many of my clients are victims and survivors of childhood trauma which can leave a person feeling detached and without the ability to set limits and boundaries in relationships. It is difficult for some to believe that the symptoms of today can be the result of a residual traumatic experience. However, it is my experience, that the implicit and explicit messages of our past have had a profound effect on our current thought processes and only until that is realized, can we evoke change. "
