During my thirty-seven years as a therapist I’ve successfully treated many clients for anxiety, depression, dysfunctional relationships and a variety of other issues that have prevented them from living full and happy lives. Often, there problems were caused by traumatic events from childhood. Other times they resulted from more recent events such as a divorce, job loss, serious medical diagnosis, or the death of a loved one.

Reaching out is not always easy and it's the first step to creating change. I have always believed we work to achieve success and happiness in the best ways we know how. There are times in our lives where we find ourselves unable to find solutions, move forward or times when you simply want to understand. This is where I can be of help. I encourage everyone to talk with several therapists to get a feel if this is the right person for you.

A fundamental sense of wellbeing is our natural state. Having a sense of fear of what is going to happen next is also a part of our nature. Which experience dominates depends on which parts of our mind and nervous system are in the driver's seat, so to speak. We can use this knowledge to improve our relationships, enjoy our lives more, and feel more optimistic about the future by noticing which parts of our selves are in control and make a shift to access the innate wisdom that we all possess.

I give my full, non-judgmental attention when my clients and I are mutually exploring their concerns, and I'm active and responsive to clients' agendas as we work on the practical changes they're seeking. Establishing a safe, loving space is vital to this process. I've learned that behind a variety of issues, there are common roots. For example, many of us suffer from unhelpful thoughts that block our ability to see ourselves and our lives clearly. When we examine these, we take an important first step in the sequence of creating greater awareness, making new choices, and then establishing real change.

My clients cross all cultural backgrounds. They are often dealing with PTSD and old beliefs that are damaging their lives. I help them reclaim their lives with techniques involving cutting edge brain re-training that is more effective at creating permanent healing than talk therapy alone. By rewriting the brain's programs that have accumulated over a client's lifetime, we create emotional well-being, peace, joy and self-acceptance. I work with many issues, including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, conscious uncoupling, addictions and sexual issues. Text me for more info: 831-888-6201.
