Professional statement


Message to clients

I am here to help you find a way to feel better with whatever may be ailing you. I believe the ability to heal is not something that is outside of us, it is within us, and I would like to opportunity to help you tap into this part. We all have a wise part that knows the truth (neurologically referred to as the medial prefrontal cortex,) but tapping into this part to assist during stressful or triggering times is what can feel impossible when old implicit memories take hold. Rest assured that this wise part is never completely lost. With lots of practice, patience and compassion, we can all learn to tap into this part and live more harmoniously with ourselves and others; however, do not be fooled, this requires work (both inside and outside of sessions) and some tolerance of discomfort. What I can tell you is that I have yet to meet anyone who can tell me that this work is not worthwhile. You are always worthwhile. Please feel welcome to contact me with any questions or inquires about the nature of my practice and/or how I may be of support to you.
