When life becomes an unpleasant journey and your world becomes a dark and dangerous place, I can help you find a way out. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I am also a Transpersonal Hypnotherapist. I believe my diversified life experiences allow me to relate to the struggles of my clients without being judgmental. Even if you suffer deeply, I believe, I can help you find your way back to the light within.
I am an eclectic therapist: Traditional to Transpersonal, your choice. My passion: The transpersonal in life. The dreaming mind especially fascinates me. Amazingly, our dreams can take us to the basement of our thoughts or raise us to that place where we may actually touch that existence beyond our knowing.
If your marriage is in a shambles, or your children have low school achievement or behave "badly", I may be able to help. If your work environment is "people toxic" or your healthy relationships are few, I may be able to help. Therapy is scary, hard work. Be Brave!

Dreams: The Other Self

Upon awakening, we are often unaware as to why we feel afraid, sad, exhausted. Dreams are so powerful that they can make our hearts race and change our emotions. This group is intended to help participants learn about the messages contained in their dreams. The focus is on turning nightmares into daydreams.
