If you're reading this, it's likely that you are experienceing some distress, from relationships,career problems,financial stress,grief, etc..and perhaps the depression, anxiety...other symptoms that often follow. Or, you may be seeking clarity of goals and life direction. I have enjoyed working with a heterogenous client group: anyone seeking change, in my view, is a great client. My background also helps me to be aware of unique stresses felt by creative artists and professionals in all fields.I also treat addiction, recovery and co-dependency as well as adolescents with Asperger's Syndrome.I've been lucky enough to see the effectiveness of psychotherapy through my own therapy experience and by having been fortunate to witness the growth and positive changes made by so many of my clients.It is with joy and excitement that I come to this collaborative and exciting work."

"I can help you change self-defeating habits that have resisted your conscious efforts to change; behaviors like overeating, smoking, negative thinking, avoiding, getting anxious, depressed, and losing your cool. Habits are controlled by your subconscious. So, you need a reliable method of communicating with it. I use clinical hypnosis to open the doorway to your subconscious so that with your permission I can provide it with the information it needs to change the behaviors you want to change. I take the time to listen and understand you. Working together, we will create an individualized hypnosis program that will work for you. "

And there is no limit on joy or uplifting supply. While life is beautiful, the human journey is not without suffering. Pain and Loss are inescapable experiences and some so profound, they disconnect us from our inherent knowing and well-being.
