Message to clients

Welcome to your own inner journey to transformative personal growth, empowerment and well-being!

Our work together will encourage you to trust confidently in your own feelings, heart and intuition. Emotional self acceptance brings the heart into balance with life, restoring awareness of your natural oneness with all life. Focusing directly on the feelings underlying your issues rather than the thoughts will give you profound insight and clarity, and allow issues to resolve naturally and permanently. Learning to trust in your own unique emotional/ intuitive perspective, instead of the stories in your mind, will bring you genuine self confidence and autonomy, a renewed sense of direction in life, and dramatic spiritual/ psychological growth.

By restoring wholeness, Quantum psychology allows the therapeutic process to achieve clarity and personal fulfillment on a scale not possible in a more traditional context. This is a whole person, genuinely transformational therapy approach, based on Quantum Physics principles, non verbal deep feeling exploration, and mindfulness.

I respect your courage in seeking to improve your life through inner exploration and I look forward to working with you! I specialize in relationships and have extensive training and experience with anxiety, panic, depression, trauma and sexual and emotional abuse. My therapy approach incorporates Quantum psychology, Gestalt psychology, Depth/Jungian, Existential, Growth-Through-Trauma, and individually customized techniques.
