About My Clients

Do you want help with anxiety, trauma, eating or body issues? Are you finding that you keep getting in your own way? That your emotions, trauma, pain, BS stories and anxiety are preventing you from living the life you are meant to live? The good news is that there are hundreds of ways, techniques or perspectives that can and will shift you and your life. The catch? You need to be willing to step into the unknown and get uncomfortable. It helps to have a rebel spirit, but it is not mandatory!

My Background and Approach

I work with the mind, body and spirit to get you there. The techniques used are often straightforward and easy to replicate: ranging from somatic experiencing, breathing techniques, kundalini yoga and meditation to psychodrama, internal family systems, and bioenergetics. What makes them effective is the timing, the amount and the process. Much like baking. Once you master them, you will be able to use them whenever you would like. Most people who come to me get results within the first or second session and have resolved what they came to see me for within 7-15 sessions (max).

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I have experienced in myself and others how often beliefs change and don’t take them too seriously, just like our emotions. With the right tools you can change either of them as well! What I choose to find important at this time in my life is the value of the present moment, the value of love for ourselves and everything experienced, the beauty in seeing god/infinity within and in the world as a whole (including other people), the importance of seeing humanity as a community of similar beings who all need our help at some point in this dream we call life. I believe we should be free and empowered and that the systems that are meant to support us often trap instead. Take therapy for example: it is meant to help better us, yet so many people feel unwell without their therapist or that the only way to wellness is through therapy. Sounds disempowering to me 🤷‍♂️! Instead I choose to use my title and skills as a way to sustainably empower people so they can be their own guide.
