"Does the idea of therapy week after week with slow movement seem frustrating to you? It does to me. I have facilitated transformational trainings internationally for the past 25 years in serving people reignite passion in relationships, breakthrough limiting beliefs and step into who they are committed to being. I became a LMFT because I wanted to translate the powerful progress of transformation into a therapeutic setting with Couples, for faster progress and healing. I work best with those who are motivated and committed to shifting patterns that are limiting. I offer Couples Custom-designed Intensives, Retreats, and Breakthrough mentorships."

"My therapeutic approach focuses very much on the here-and-now. While events in your past certainly played some role in your present distress, the past can not be changed. I believe the primary goal of psychotherapy is to teach you the tools you need to change the current patterns that are causing you problems. I also have special training and experience working with children and adolescents. While the techniques used with youths are obviously different from those used with adults, the goal remains the same: to provide the tools that will bring about positive change."

"Experiencing trauma is so overwhelming in and of itself; however, that's only part of the picture. After this difficult situation, you feel anxious, fearful, sad, guilty, and distrusting. You try not to think about what happened but you can't stop images from entering your mind. Your friends or loved ones may say: "You need to move on," "It's in the past," or "It wasn't as bad as ____". Maybe you're drinking or using drugs to try to avoid all of this. These are common experiences for those who have experienced trauma (and many different types of events can be traumatic)."
