"Are you ready for a positive change? Tired of doing the same thing and expecting different results? While we cannot change our past, or our genetic predispositions, we can learn to change the way we respond and react to our emotions and triggers; in order to give them less power and control in our lives. Learning about your unique experiences, needs and goals, and responding with caring and empathy, I will walk with you in exploring the barriers that you feel are hindering you, and provide therapeutic support, counseling and tools to help you acheive your goals."

"All human beings are capable of meaningful and lasting transformation. All of us, regardless of whether we are 6 or 60, can use our minds to change our brains to change our minds to... well, you get the picture. This is thanks to a phenomenon called "neuroplasticity." Neuroplasticity says that neurons that fire together wire together. Through the intentional development of new skills for choosing healthier thoughts and responses to life's challenges, we can actually change the structure of our brains. This gradual transformation of our neurology allows us to restructure our lives to eliminate needless suffering."

"It takes a village...Navigating through the transitions and challenges in our lives is meant to be a collaboration with family, friends, elders, wise women and men. However, in the times of instant change and mobility, some may find themselves lost and alone, far from those they confide in and look up to. Sometimes they isolate for fear of vulnerability and the pressure to appear "to have it together". When this self-judgement and drive to be “perfect” eventally takes its toll, one can be left feeling bereft of deep connection to self and others. Finding a therapist you can trust and confide in, can help you find your way."

I Have had life experience in dealing with trauma which guided me to become engaged in the study of psychology. I saw the need for more understanding of the mind and the human experience.

They are often highly sensitive and imaginative, helpers and healers, with literary, artistic, or philosophical leanings. They are all seeking to heal inner conflicts and relationship problems rooted in early attachment wounds or traumatic experiences.

"Working in an alliance between mind and body brings powerful resources to the table, freeing vital energy and core beliefs that have locked us into living partial lives. Using the physical symptoms that plague us as a doorway, we track buried survival patterns from our stressful past. Feelings and sensations lead the client, posture and pattern guide the therapist, to bring the unconscious blockage to light. Now we complete the step we weren't able to then. New responses become wired in, so that our hoped-for future becomes our new normal. A great way to heal trauma, attachment issues, autoimmune conditions and anxiety."
