Personal Statement

In the comfort and security of a non-judgmental and confidential setting, I provide psychotherapy and hypnotherapy to clients dealing with a host of life’s challenges. Maybe you are feeling down, anxious, or overwhelmed. It’s possible that the conflicts within important relationships are inhibiting personal progress and intimacy. Maybe you feel unappreciated or unsatisfied by life’s circumstances. Regardless of the situation, I am a well-qualified, professional, and compassionate resource, ready and able to help you!

As a psychotherapist, my job is to listen and help you better understand your personal narrative. Sometimes, we get stuck in behavioral or cognitive thought patterns that lead to a negative self-concept or relationship conflicts. Through psychotherapy, I approach each individual with the necessary guidance to clarify their goals, identify their roadblocks, and define their process for moving forward.

Hypnotherapy can also be a powerful tool, utilized to treat habitual actions, behaviors, or thoughts. This treatment, either in isolation or conjunction with psychotherapy, can provide relief from symptoms or be a means of understanding an issue from a deeper perspective. I utilize hypnotherapy to help individuals cope with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, intimacy, relationship conflict, trauma and grief, difficulties with decision making, eating problems/weight loss, creativity and writers’ block, bad habits (smoking/nail biting), and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). I provide can help guide you toward self-discovery and satisfaction.

My Approach to Helping I truly believe that healing comes from exploring and working through what “comes up” in your mental, physical, energetic, and spiritual bodies.
