Clear, Resolve, Transform. I help clients discover and resolve subconscious causes for emotionaI and behavioral difficulties. The Subconscious controls emotions, desires, memory, habits, thoughts, dreams, and automatic responses. One may consciously understand the value of eliminating problematic emotions, thoughts or behaviors but unless the Subconscious Mind is reached, enduring change is unlikely. I address the underlying subconscious blocks to living a clear and free life. I have effectively treated sexual abuse, trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, phobias, addictions and more. Issues are cleared, clients report being able to function with more energy and clarity. Relationships thrive and lives are transformed.

Hearing from the heart and seeking help with paralyzing personal challenges can be a daunting experience. Finding someone to connect with in the process of personal healing is half the battle to a solution. Keeping the person at the center of the therapeutic process is a goal for me. I have employed this approach for over 16 years of practice in Western NC. While this majestic mountain setting is a place of unique beauty it is not free of personal challenges that may need a calm and skilled approach to navigating life' s challenges.

Given all the insanity of the world, you know that you're needed NOW more than ever. Your work is to help your clients reclaim their center but you get kicked by the chaos in the world. Yeah, you're human, yet you question how you can help when you're anxious and fearful. When you don't know your own future. When you take in the suffering of the people of the planet. And so you do what you've always done: give of yourself, but not TO yourself. And then you grow depleted and despondent, questioning who you are, questioning your purpose.

We do the best we can to work through life's challenges, but sometimes get stuck, through fear, depression or old patterns of behavior that no longer serve us. I strongly believe it's possible to realize your natural tendency toward balance and wholeness. Together we'll address roadblocks to your healing, accessing parts of you which may be sleeping, hiding, working less efficiently or effectively than they might. Our work combines practical strategies for immediate situations, and bringing acceptance and compassion to parts that carry old wounds, allowing relief and space for joy and greater life satisfaction to emerge.

I believe that every person embodies their own answers and inner wisdom but can often encounter obstacles that make it difficult to access their full capabilities and strengths. I enjoy providing guidance and exploration of the parts of oneself that have been suppressed or avoided as a mechanism of survival. I use a direct and person-centered approach to help to transform patterns that are often instinctual and comfortable, but ultimately unhealthy. I meet clients wherever they are emotionally and incorporate an approach in which I provide a safe space for clients to become empowered at their own pace.

When we've experienced unhealthy relationship dynamics or trauma, it can be hard to know how to trust ourselves and others. This can lead to low self-worth, codependency, repeating unwanted patterns, depression, or relational issues. Safely exploring what is at the core of these issues will allow you to live a more authentic and connected life. I work primarily with women who want to uncover their core beliefs and subconscious patterns in order to consciously create the life they desire. Unburden yourself by learning how to compassionately accept your story, process your emotions, and become the safe, loving place you yearn for.

It is common to see therapy as a journey to discover the Self. We have familiar maps, or patterns, which can lead to unhappiness or self-sabotaging behavior. You may find yourself stranded in all-too-familiar territory with little idea of how to move on. Like many journeys, it can be an exciting adventure but can also be full of unknowns. I see my role as your guide, to blaze new “routes” together that have worked well for others. As Helen Keller once said: “What I am looking for is not out there, it is in me.” I truly believe the exquisite joy you find by falling in love with yourself is a journey you don’t want to miss!

Most people who identify a need for therapy seem to be dealing with natural defense systems that help manage shock and developmental trauma including attachment wounds. A defense response may be anxiety, depression, dissociation, psychosis, avoidant attachment, etc. A part of therapy is simply developing understanding and acceptance of defense mechanisms, then there is more capacity to reclaim or recover self regulation, co-regulation and self concept. I am interested in working with all people who have experienced trauma and as well as getting to the causal factors, developing grounding in the present and hope about the future.
