My passion is to work with clients who suffer from or are impacted by physical difficulties such as cancer or chronic illness.
Individuals affected by cancer or other physical illnesses often do not realize the influence that the illness has on their mental health until the emotions are all consuming. This is where I step in: to help you deal with life-altering, overwhelming changes that come with the diagnosis, treatment, recovery, and grief of physical illness. I have a wealth of experience working with individuals, couples, and families impacted by physical illness, and believe that physical illness affects the entire family system in a multitude of ways. Whether you are a survivor, caregiver, are grieving, or in the midst of illness, you are not alone.

My expertise is in helping teenagers and adults cope with trauma: a cancer diagnosis, chronic illness, a natural disaster, a pandemic, bullying, a car accident, a divorce, the death of a loved one. Some common responses to trauma are isolation, depression, loss of hope, anxiety, loss of control. Trauma abruptly Disconnects you from yourself and the reality you were accustomed to. Healing is in the Reconnection.

Whether it's social or exam anxiety, chronic illness, finances, or other challenges that are holding you back, I can help you create meaningful change.
If anxiety is keeping you from succeeding in your career or preventing you from finding fulfilling relationships, you may feel desperate to start seeing improvement. Perhaps you have a large project you need to tackle or are tired of feeling awkward and overwhelmed while dating or with coworkers, even though you know you have so much to offer. And while you would like to get to the root of this anxiety to manage it once and for all, you also need to make changes quickly. Hypnotherapy can do just that: provide short-term symptom relief and long-term change.

Our sexuality is at the core of who we are as humans, and where we came from – it is our life force. It’s also at the core of our own identity. So many of us are searching for who we truly are. We’re so encapsulated in who we should be being for others, that we end up losing ourselves. This shows up most frequently in intimate relationships. Our desire for unconditional love from another supersedes our need for physical connection. Emotion trumps sexuality. And what goes on within our mind shuts down the abilities of our body. Are you feeling lost in your relationship? Do you desire more sexually?

Life comes with loss and change: the death of a loved one, the loss of health - such as being diagnosed with a life altering condition - or a breakup, to name a few. Dealing with any loss and adjusting to major change often negatively affects us, and our emotional well-being and coping habits are sometimes compromised as a result. It is easy to fall into depression or develop anxiety if our coping is not managed and nurtured appropriately. Clinical supervision services also provided to ASWs reg.w/BBS

Grief comes out of nowhere and slams you - hard. Whether you've recently lost a family member, career, your health, or someone or something else that you hold dear, the loss can knock you off-center. You used to manage your life pretty well, but now you can barely keep things together. You're distracted and irritable. You want to get back to normal, but you don't know how to get through the intense feelings that threaten to overwhelm you. And if your child or teen has also been affected by this loss, it's even more difficult to envision what "normal" might look like for your family, or how to get there.
