About

Has social distancing turned into emotional distancing? Or, maybe you’ve been living disconnected for more years than you can count?

If you’re like the hundreds of people I’ve worked with, you’re probably asking yourself, “What is wrong with me?” As you read this, take a moment to check in with the energy produced inside of you.

Do you feel motivated to seek further? I am sure the response is “no.”

Instead, experiment with questions such as: What’s right with me? How do the pains I am living with actually make sense? Am I ready to release the heaviness I have been carrying for too long?

If you’ve taken a bit of time to reflect, I’m sure you’ve got some feelings showing up.

We must feel to heal.

This is where I can be useful to you. You may have not learned to feel in a way that moves you forward. I am available to journey with you in order to discover what exactly it is that you need for optimal growth and healing.

Just as you have, I too have traversed this ball called earth. Along the way, I have learned from the people who accompanied me and helped me to transform stuck behaviors and unhelpful, shame-producing beliefs into understanding, contentment and joy.

My personal experiences have helped me to dedicate my professional life to learning about humans, the ways we hurt one another and the ways we hurt ourselves. With this knowledge, I serve as a guide to help people to hurt less and to feel the richness of life, walk in gratitude and enjoy connection with others again or for the first time ever.

If you are interested in what I am sharing, here is info about the people with whom I do my best work:
– Couples plagued by oppressive forces outside of their relationship; couples for whom difference is a major factor contributing to the experience of pain and disconnection (race, culture, nationality, ethnicity, age, health, trauma history, religion, sect, class, caste, etc.)

– Individuals in group psychotherapy who desire to experience connection with others who have experienced some of the same trials and triumphs. With curiosity and willingness to explore the depths of thoughts and emotions in the company of others, the healing impact of groupwork is exponential.

– Individuals in one-on-one therapy who have experienced a myriad of traumas, abuses or neglect and are interested in connecting more deeply with themselves, in order to shape the truth-filled story of their life. Symptoms related to complex post traumatic stress disorder (CPTSD), dissociative identity disorder (DID), bipolar disorder or chronic pain conditions (fibromyalgia, arthritis, migraines) will be present.

I use a blend of neuroscience and wisdom to support the work I do, which is focused on helping my clients to restore clarity of mind, connection with others and live as energized human beings with creativity, calm and courage.

Please use the fields below to send me a message. I look forward to discovering if we’re a good fit for one another as you move towards meeting your health and happiness goals.

May light and love be yours today, tomorrow and forevermore.
