My Approach to Helping

A lot of the issues that people face stem from repeating destructive patterns that lead to the same undesired outcomes. Such behavioral patterns were developed not by choice, but by necessity and are habits of life saving responses such as: chase, avoid, overachieve, underachieve, anger, anxiousness, and many more. The problem is that these responses create only an illusion of safety. Through treatment we will identify your patterns and how to change them. I have designed a highly specific set of techniques to assist you in mastery of your life so you can live a life of peace and surrender and achieve harmony and balance in your life and your relationships, especially the most important one with yourself. In developing a deeper level of awareness you can resolve conflict in any relationship. You will learn to uncover and challenge old beliefs to enable you to create a new reality. Through a series of techniques, you can also learn highly effective ways to communicate clearly, succinctly and confidently.

Additionally, I have worked with C-Suite executives, as well as, professionals in the entertainment and sports industry to address issues unique to their lifestyle to instigate permanent and lasting change.

My Therapy Focus

My belief about therapy is that anything is possible. My focus is to eliminate any thought processes that hold you back from creating the life you so desire. Most often I see people who get stuck thinking they can fix only so much and then they can't. You can break performance ceilings, excel in the workplace, and create and maintain the relationships with yourself and others that you never thought possible. Command respect, own yourself, and live the life of your dreams.
