"Your emotions are at the center of who you are as a person. If you feel your feelings as distinctive, you feel your individuality. If you feel without too much evasion, you feel genuine and alive as a person, and so on.. Equally central to your emotional life, and to your personhood, is human relationship. Your relationships with others have and continue to shape your experience of emotion, and your sense of self. When others see, value, and enjoy your feelings, you are seen, valued and enjoyed in the world. So, let's talk about feelings and relationships."

"This right now, finding a therapist, is probably not fun, in fact, it may be a very uncomfortable experience. Hopefully right now is the most difficult part on this path. If you are already browsing therapists then it would seem you're at least contemplating some kind of transformation. Change does not have to be scary, it can also be relieving, rewarding, and a source of achievement. I believe personal growth is for everyone, no matter where you are in your life.

"Change – inevitable, inexorable, unavoidable. Change can be scary, disruptive, and messy. Even good, positive, welcome changes mean saying goodbye to the old while preparing for the new and unknown. Change means overcoming challenges, building relationships, developing character, growing professionally and personally, unearthing and integrating parts of oneself previously hidden. We all need compassionate, focused empathy, supportive insight, and unconditional acceptance. Allow me to help you grow through the changes. Let me help you find and express your best self.

"I believe people want to express who they are and pursue satisfying work and relationships, but have emotional and cognitive patterns that keep them stuck. These patterns often consolidate into a persona that leaves people feeling not quite themselves, with needs unrealized, feelings ignored, and potential unused. Symptoms of anxiety and depression, addictions, or low self-esteem, are often the only messengers trying to let us know that we are needing change. In a supportive and safe environment, therapy can help to bring these patterns into awareness and liberate needs to connect, create, and expand with fuller emotional support."

It is a brain exercise system that helps you change by creating a more functional and stable brain state, reducing anxiety and depression, PTSD, migraines, artistic blocks, and ADHD. It enhances focus, clarity, memory, and improves relationships. I work with the entertainment industry, schools, trauma survivors, and I teach psychology and creative process at Antioch University.
