My Approach to Helping

As an author, public speaker, spiritual scholar, and Licensed Clinical Psychologist, my goal is to create a welcoming space to explore the deeper realities of life. My expertise lies within combining psychological with spiritual world views, as a more cohesive path to healing. I aim to help patients heal mentally, emotionally, socially, and spiritually.

I had the privilege to be under the wing of mentorship of Dr. Stephan A. Hoeller, the renowned Gnostic-Jungian scholar. With this background, I have created my own method of therapy over the last 18 years; I call it “Gnostic Pneumatherapy”. Having crafted this particular method myself, I am thus able to implement various treatment styles with patients, including talk therapy, couple’s therapy, humor, rituals, intuition, and whatever is suitable for that particular person. I also specialize in dream interpretation.

Being able to help individuals identify a lack of direction in life enables them to address issues of depression, anxiety, grief, and suffering. Many people feel lost and in need of guidance; my goal is to help them discover what a successful path looks like for them.

If you’re searching for a spiritual and clinical approach to healing, contact me to get started on your journey to wholeness!
