About

Life can be a maze of decisions, but sometimes our emotions leave us overwhelmed and paralyzed, unable to take steps towards the life we want. Feeling tired or stressed? Operating like you are on auto-pilot? Anxious? Poor Confidence? Low-Self Esteem? Relationship/dating struggles? Work Issues? Going through a divorce? Emotional Trauma? I work with clients to challenge their inner critic, gain control over their lives, and get emotionally healthy. Your self-care is important! I offer in person & online therapy. Ask me about Clinical Hypnotherapy, Emotional Freedom Techniques, Yoga, & Meditation sessions!
I work with you to provide a safe space that uses empowerment, mindfulness, holistic healing, wellness, and body/self care practices to help you break down the patterns that block you. I help you challenge your limiting beliefs and liberate your emotional freedom to build an identity that allows you to manage problems and reach your full potential.
Want to feel better? I invite you to a space of emotional and physical healing. As a result of working with me clients are able to manage their anxiety, depression, & trauma issues, gain clarity & insight, improve relationships, increase communication with others, lose weight, be more productive, and create solid goals & businesses. You can do this!
