I use a psychosocialspiritual and mind-body approach. In addition to traditional therapy techniques, I also use Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy; Guided Imagery; Mindfulness Techniques; and Reiki. I also teach the four levels of Reiki. I believe each of us is the expert on ourselves even though a client may be unaware of this at the time he seeks therapy. 'Cobwebs' may be created, that mask our true selves, to help us cope with difficult situations during our developmental years. When these 'cobwebs' develop into symptoms, a person usually seeks help.

Together, with my client, we proceed to gently remove these 'cobwebs'. This involves helping the client unweave their old tapestry and to reweave a new tapestry that is more reflective of their true self

This process sounds simple, but it is quite complicated and requires much courage from the client. The process parallels helping to free a butterfly from its cocoon and then watch it fly unencumbered. I consider it an honor when a client calls upon my services to assist them on their journey!
