My Approach to Helping


I want to help you discover how to get your life back... quickly and painlessly.

My goal is to NOT to keep you in therapy for months or years but, instead, get you to a healthy life as soon as possible.

For the past 15 years, I've been helping clients use their natural abilities to heal much faster than traditional counseling. So fast, in fact, that they see results after their first session. My clients have experienced real, lasting results from their therapy.

Many people shy away from counseling because they think they'll have to re-live their pain, it will take too long and they'll do all the work while a therapist just takes notes. My therapy is the opposite of all that.


IT'S PAINLESS: You will NOT have to re-live a traumatic event to heal.

IT'S FAST: Most issues can be resolved in just 2 - 4 sessions... not in months or years.

IT'S EASY: The work is done by me, not you! All you have to do is be open-minded.

IT WORKS: It works so well, you'll feel better after just your first session.
