" My ideal client is consumed with worry and dread about acceptance at work from co-workers and bosses due to past trauma. Something from the past has resulted in a sense of incapability toward the future she so desperately desires. She is so on guard against criticism from acquaintances and failures toward her dreams that she is losing sleep at night, waking up sweating with knots in her stomach, and daydreaming through her husband’s report of his day and her children’s repeated requests to play. She is too exhausted and overwhelmed to answer her best friend's calls and can't remember the last time she exercised or meditated. "

""What if I crumble under the pressure?" You appear calm on the outside but on the inside you're wondering if you're really cut out for this. You worry that people will think you're a "fraud" or "impostor". (A very common fear). You're tired of people telling you that you're "overthinking it." Performance anxiety is real. Athletes, performers, business professionals, and test takers all experience it and it's debilitating - making it difficult to think clearly and perform effectively, let alone enjoy what you're doing. You're ready for a mindset change, a different way to do things."

"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."
