"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."

"As a trained couples' and family therapist, I use a systemic approach with my clients which emphasizes the development and maintenance of healthy relationships and communication. Evidence-based practices such as cognitive-behavioral and solution focused therapies are examples of the theoretical orientations from which I work. I believe wholeheartedly that change comes from a blend of internal and external factors with a team approach between the therapist and client(s). My philosophy is not to "fix" people, but rather serve as a partner to support my clients toward defining and reaching their expressed personal values and goals."
