About Me

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 send me a message of interest. 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.
