By trusting your inner wisdom, you can heal old beliefs and negative thoughts that keep you stuck and unable to go forward in your life. As we embark upon the journey of your healing, I will be there to assist and guide you in co-creating your life's goals and dreams. In facilitating your process, I use various modalities, such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing), focusing, meditation and other body based therapies. My training is transpersonal and body-oriented, which means that I believe one way in "coming home" to yourself is through the inner wisdom of your own body. Please let me assist you in making lasting changes so that you, too, might enjoy more meaningful relationships with yourself and others, and find your inner peace.

Both body and mind remember negative experiences that occurred in the past. I will assist you to activate your innate ability to heal your psychological wounds. As we explore your experiences, I will also assist you to discover your emotions and beliefs behind the experience. While building resources to reinforce a new positive pattern, you will gradually integrate and transform old patterns of body and mind.
