"Of all the things we learn in school, there’s never been a subject more essential to living than learning to engage with our own thoughts and emotions in a healthy way. Fortunately, it’s never too late to learn. I am naturally curious, an engaged observer, and most importantly an active agent of change; I hope to bring peace to guests who have struggled far too long with being controlled by their inner experience. For me therapy represents a rare opportunity to engage and to develop skills to lead a better life. By prioritizing a safe and supportive environment, I am able to engage those who are finally fed up with being stuck and searching for a new path, especially those weighed down by anxiety, panic attacks and OCD. Combining proven treatment methods such as Exposure Response Prevention, Mindful Awareness and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, I am able to assist those discovering their untapped, natural strength and potential to push through and live a life that is fulfilling even if anxiety is present. I identify with individuals who come from all walks of life. "

"Despite what Thoreau says, we do not have to live lives of quiet desperation. Through mindfulness and hypnotherapy, you can find freedom from the negative thoughts and beliefs underlying the fear and anger, that is, the stress. I helped stressed out professionals find balance, freedom and joy. Often they try to manage their stress by having a drink, working out, or going out on the town. While these provide some relief, the problem is, they do not get to the source. One day the stress has taken over and there's little or no joy left."
