"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."

"Entering into counseling takes both courage and vulnerability. I treat adults and children with trauma/anxiety and or substance use disorders. The approach that I use is one of trust and mutual respect, believing that every person has within them everything they need to grow and learn in life. Identifying and drawing forth those skills and strengths as well as an action plan for change is crucial for problem resolution. My approach in counseling is holistic as is my approach to self-healing, working with body, mind, and Spirit. They are truly connected. Working with any one area will impact the others."

"Indeed it is a troubled time. Our difficulties as human beings have grown in magnitude and complexity. The growing demands of everyday living and the lack of community-feeling has left many feeling lost, confused, homeless, lonely and afraid. ​Being human is messy business. We are expected to bear the load of so many complex emotions that result from the deaths of those we love, stress, major life changes, marital and interpersonal difficulties, family histories, parenting, keeping up with the pace of life and making a living on top of it all."

"Most people who identify a need for therapy seem to be dealing with natural defense systems that help manage shock and developmental trauma. A defense response may be anxiety, depression, dissociation, psychosis, avoidant attachment, etc. A part of therapy is simply developing understanding and acceptance of defense mechanisms, then there is more capacity to reclaim or recover self regulation, co-regulation and self concept. I am interested in working with all people who have experienced trauma and as well as getting to the causal factors, developing grounding in the present and hope about the future."

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.
