About

Do you want to turn crises into opportunities for growth? Do you want to heal the pain from the past and experience the life that you want in the present? Do you want to learn how to cherish your partner and live in peaceful harmony? Do you want to work through past traumas, change dysfunctional family patterns and shed outdated defenses? Problems in life are unavoidable, but suffering is a choice. Trying to elude the pain of life's challenges can leave you stuck in stress, anxiety, and depression.
Research shows couples with a 5:1 ratio of positive / negative interactions build up a resilient "emotional bank". Do you want to forgive past injuries and rediscover that couple holding hands? Learn communication skills, conflict resolution techniques, and how to cultivate the loving behaviors to get to the magic ratio.
In my 25 years of practice, it has been my privilege to walk beside my many clients on their journeys to happier, healthier lives. I am trained in experiential therapies (EMDR, hypnosis, gestalt) which can get to the root of suffering and heal it for good.
