"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. "

"Anxiety, Addiction, or Depression might have you feeling like you've lost touch with the life you really want. The daily struggle is exhausting and you just want to feel better already. You might feel alone in all this, but I promise you're not. I help people just like you learn concrete tools and strategies to achieve the life you want. It's ok if you aren't sure what you want. We can figure it out together and build a roadmap for how to get there. I believe that the most important thing that a client needs is a therapist who is nonjudgmental, compassionate, relatable, and down to earth - so I work hard to embody these qualities. "

"The question I’m always trying to ask as a counselor is not, “How can I help my clients cope better?” but rather, “How can I help them not have to cope quite 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 take so many of those deep breaths.

"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.
