Seeking an alternative to traditional therapy? That’s why I’m here. My tools range from innovative new mind-body modalities (e.g., Energy Psychology) to the most ancient spiritual/energetic modality (shamanic healing). These tools enable me to help clients address most of the problems that licensed mental health professionals do – plus some they can’t. And usually do it more efficiently. This is the main reason I almost always have one or more licensed therapists as clients. See the testimonials on my website.
"Everyday is about becoming" I believe that going through a process of self-reflection and change is powerful and brave. It helps us identify how we are getting in our own way in having a better quality of life. In responsibility their is power. Everyone wants to feel content and satisfied with themselves and the world they build around them but we struggle to achieve this goal because we have been hurt, disappointed, betrayed, or doubt ourselves. Find your personal power and change your world. I am with you.

Others view you as someone to turn to: dedicated and reliable. You’re a good listener. You often put others needs before yours. You have high standards for others and even higher standards for yourself. You’ve accomplished almost everything you’ve ever put your mind to, despite many obstacles. You have a great life…but you struggle with being connected to the life you’ve created. YOU ARE SEEKING HEALING AND LONGING FOR CLARITY. That’s where I can help. My aim as a therapist is to give you a space to feel heard so you can break the patterns that are holding you back.
