I believe that clients have the innate ability to heal through accessing their innermost selves. Each client is traveling their own personal, interpersonal, and spiritual path and I act as a guide to help facilitate and co- create healing and wholeness. Through healing old wounds, past traumas, and solving relationship conflicts, I aspire to help individuals, couples, and families reach their highest potentials to aid in having richer and more fulfilling lives. My approach is Transpersonal, which means that I look beyond the ego into the spiritual to encourage wholeness in each client.
Hypnotherapy is a deeply relaxed state of heightened awareness that helps access subconscious material of the psyche to purge the psyche of negative beliefs,and traumatic imprints. Hypnotherapy can aid in building self esteem from the ground up to an acceptance of more confidence. Hypnotherapy resolves anxiety, and depression quickly.
EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing) works to stimulate trauma so that it may be digested. When a disturbing events occurs , it gets locked in the brain with the original picture, sounds, thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations. EMDR helps stimulates the information and allows the brain to reprocess it.
