My Background and Approach

I truly love what I do. Being a therapist is my passion and my dream come true! My niche is helping clients who's experiences fall outside of the cultural norm, i.e. hearing voices, seeing visions/entities, lucid dreaming, and unexplained knowing, among others. I believe that these creative mechanisms are organic, relevant, and serve to balance out the individual. When these expressions are collaboratively examined in a gentle and non-judgmental manner, the possibilities for the client are endless. Other areas of specialization include: emotional intensity, self-esteem, narcissistic victim syndrome, assertiveness training, sexual abuse and self-harm, and issues related to creative thinking. The presence I bring into sessions comes from personal experience with traumatic memory/amnesia and spending 10+ years on the client side. I believe that a collaborative, non-hierarchical approach to therapy is the most critical element in healing within the therapeutic relationship.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My beliefs in general can be summed with this quote from Dr. Brian Weiss speaking of reincarnation: "I appreciated how difficult it is to believe these concepts without having personal experience. The experience is necessary to add emotional belief to intellectual understanding."

I have experience with the following
  • Buddhism
  • Christianity
