When conventional talk therapy doesn't work at helping you resolve issues or find answers; try Hypnotherapy! Everything you've ever experienced is stored in your subconcious. With 10 plus years of experience, I teach you how to overcome, control, and manage behaviors. I help develop new patterns for lasting change. Your mind is always successful at allowing you to arrive at your goals. What may be getting in your way is the pattern of how you have learned to do things. In therapy, I focus on your goal and where you want to be. I believe finding out why is not worth it.

I provide an integrative, resiliency-focused approach to therapy, pulling from your strengths and values to guide our work and help you regain a sense of mastery, meaning, and connection in your life.

Is your life in balance? Many years of experience have taught me that the combination of psychological insight and behavioral change are necessary to make a difference in the two most important areas of life: relationships and work. Without change we "understand" but repeat the same self-defeating behaviors over and over. Family and friends can give great support but a psychotherapist is trained, neutral and can say things to you which are hard to hear from others and help you explore aspects of your life which are uncomfortable for you.

Sometimes these problems can be satisfactorily dealt with in a short time. Often they cannot. I like to work with people in both categories; but I most enjoy the challenges and rewards of working with those who must choose the longer path in search of a better solution, and of deeper self-knowledge.
