Humanistic Therapy is at the center of all that I do. This entails true compassion for the person you are working with and knowing that the person has the tools they need to heal and succeed inside of them. In this viewpoint, I am not telling you what to do or diminishing all the knowledge and power that you have, but instead, I am helping to guide your process of growth and development along your healing journey.
Hypnotherapy still tends to be seen as "mind control" from some movie or stage hypnosis show. Therapeutic hypnosis is NOT mind control, NOT stage hypnosis, and NOT a loss of consciousness. Hypnosis got it's name from "Hypnos", the Greek God of sleep, but we have learned a lot since it was named in the 1800s. Hypnosis is NOT sleep! Hypnosis IS a state of focused attention, inner healing, and inner growth. Hypnosis helps by allowing us to access resources we didn't even know we had!
Psychodynamic Therapy encompasses many different theories and therapies. Psychodynamic therapy usually focuses on the different dynamics that are at play between people, ideas, things in our environment, and systems at large. I find this to be essential in therapeutic work because it allows you to heal at deeper level. By knowing the dynamics that are at play in your life, you can make LONG and LASTING change.

Chronic illnesses of all of kinds are really difficult. Many times we can feel imprisoned or trapped in our bodies because it can get in the way of so much. I know this well because I have been experiencing chronic illness symptoms most of my life. I entered this field because I felt I couldn't find a therapist that really understood the whole situation that I was experiencing. My clinical and research experience have been full force in learning the best ways to work with this population.
Life Transitions of all kinds happen at various points throughout our life. Whether they are expected or seem to come completely out of nowhere, life transitions can change our lives in many ways. Whether it be a diagnosis of a new health condition, a break up, learning what it means to be a full-fledged adult, or any other life transition, there is much to learn about ourselves to push us further into the place we WANT to be. My approach to these transitions are personalized in EVERY situation.
