About My Clients

You are intelligent, kind & funny, yet you don't understand why but you keep ending up in the same struggle and you are sick of it. You are motivated and want better for yourself. You are often stuck in relationships where your needs aren't getting met. There are places that you are very successful and this confuses you even more because you don't know why you can't fix those other problem areas of your life. I look forward to helping you in those places you are stuck!! #youmatter

My Background and Approach

I offer a radical approach that shifts your orientation because it changes HOW you are with yourself. Your experience of the world cannot be different when you continue to show up in ways that degrade your heart, body & soul. Your relationship with yourself impacts everything - friends, relationships, family, sex, body, finances, career...EVERYTHING! My focus is in teaching you how to listen to your own cues. You will learn how to be attuned to your authentic needs, not those filtered by trauma, depression and anxiety. You'll learn: how you are inaccurately given information about your needs, thoughts, emotions through socialization; how your mind and brain impact your reality; how to tell the difference between an authentic and conditioned reactions; about your nervous system and trauma. If you have trauma or painful life experiences, you'll learn how to respond to those in a way that heals & releases them, rather than repressing or reliving them. It's an intense & beautiful journey.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

This work is an honor, a privilege, necessity. People don't know what they don't know. Committed to my own journey of transformation from addiction, paralyzing depression, anxiety and trauma. Transformation and healing are available to anyone who wants to do the work. I've been practicing psychotherapy since 1997 and see myself doing this work until I die. Compassion is for everyone!
