"Wholeness leads to healing. I guide my clients to accept all parts of themselves and find balance in their lives. I entered the field of counseling with a passion for treating trauma (big T and little t trauma). Along the way I gathered some exceptional tools for doing so, including EMDR and a somatic approach to psychotherapy. Not so far removed from trauma, I have also developed a specialty in treating addiction of all kinds. I have seen the power of emotional healing to transform people's lives in ways they always wanted but didn't know how. I am here to help whenever the client is ready to do that brave and powerful work."

It may be you've tried and felt disappointed; you may feel loved but the problem remains; maybe you can't stand the idea of what'll happen if people find out.

""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."
