"I help people navigating transitions in career, relationships, or life role, to gain clarity, achieve balance, and feel empowered to live an authentic and intentional life. When we abandon our authentic selves we may experience depression, anxiety, trouble sleeping, confusion and emptiness. Loss of Self is frequently a result of trauma, abuse, or childhood attachment wounds. I use a combination of depth therapy and EMDR to work through old traumas or negative beliefs about self. I also love working with couples to improve communication and to achieve greater intimacy."

"There is a lot of pressure in today’s world to feel good, to handle our troubles on our own. We are led to believe that the sign of a healthy life is the absence of struggle, that we are weak if we reach out for help. But, it is rare, if even possible, to find a person who does not struggle, at least a little. If struggle is a part of life, then I believe we must also contain the potential to struggle well. To struggle takes strength and courage. If you are reading this, you have already made your first step towards discovering your potential. "

"The question I’m always asking as a counselor is not, “How can I help my clients cope better?” but rather, “How can I help them not have to cope so much in the first place?” Coping gets exhausting after a while, doesn’t it? Maybe you’ve been in counseling before, (maybe for a really long time) and maybe you’ve already learned some good ways of coping. I’m more interested in helping you truly, permanently heal on a deeper level so you don't have to work so hard to just treat the symptoms. I've also learned that we usually can’t there just by talking about it. Talk therapy is often really helpful, but usually not enough. "

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.
