"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."

"There is a lot of pressure in today’s world to feel good, to handle our troubles on our own. We are led to believe that the sign of a healthy life is the absence of struggle, that we are weak if we reach out for help. But, it is rare, if even possible, to find a person who does not struggle, at least a little. If struggle is a part of life, then I believe we must also contain the potential to struggle well. To struggle takes strength and courage. If you are reading this, you have already made your first step towards discovering your potential. "

"Most people who identify a need for therapy seem to be dealing with natural defense systems that help manage shock and developmental trauma. 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."

Difficult life experiences cause the nervous system to make you feel this way, whether those experiences occurred recently or in the distant past. The body remembers and contains difficult experiences even when the mind doesn't. At some point the body can no longer contain the memories, and they pour out of us in the form of stress, anger, depression, numbness, or panic. Take advantage of one of the most effective post-traumatic stress treatments used world-wide today - the Trauma Resiliency Model."

"I work with couples who are having difficulties in the marriage and partnerships and recognize they need help to make positive changes. I facilitate Emotionally Focused Therapy, used worldwide, that helps couples create a trusting and loving relationship. With an emphasis on emotions, EFT helps couples learn how to stop their no-win fights, let their defenses down, and share more from the heart. With mindfulness, couples become more self aware and more accepting and empathic towards their partner. Over time, couples feel more open and loving toward each other and move much easier through any conflicts that arise."

"The question I’m always asking as a counselor is not, “How can I help my clients cope better?” but rather, “How can I help them not have to cope so much in the first place?” Coping gets exhausting after a while, doesn’t it? Maybe you’ve been in counseling before, (maybe for a really long time) and maybe you’ve already learned some good ways of coping. I’m more interested in helping you truly, permanently heal on a deeper level so you don't have to work so hard to just treat the symptoms.
