Frustrated by life’s stumbling blocks? Feeling stuck on your path to success in business, love or life? My mission is to utilize scientific advancements to get to your goals. I know our human system and how to make substantive shifts to improve your quality of life. Founder of The Viva Center - a 25-person healing community specializing in brain and body based therapies. Viva sponsors The Resilient Brain Project. Www.resilientbrainproject.com a FREE online mental health empowerment resource.

Working the neural networks of the brain where implicit memories are stored, allows access to material that sabatoges present day happiness. Armed with many non-verbal science based interventions, & tackling root causes of bothersome symptoms allows our work to be most efficiently directed towards results. I’m a trauma and addictions specialist.

Being mentally healthy is sexy. It’s hard to take that first step, I know. That’s because our culture still divides mental health from physical health even though we know scientifically they are 100% connected! I have used therapy in my own life as a powerful tool towards happiness. Total no judgement zone just partnership in healing.
