Individual, Family, Couples and Hypnotherapy

I bring to your life over thirty years’ postgraduate experience in varied settings and with many populations. My greatest joy in life is to see my clients make strides through crisis and beyond – to coping better, feeling better, and with a new understanding and skill set. My training and experience are in a variety of modalities, from cognitive behavioral therapy to behavior modification, to family systems therapy, to hypnotherapy and energy psychology strategies.

This can give the client choices about ways to get better and do better, to move forward to a better place in life.

Changing underlying thinking patterns can change how you feel, how you act, and how you interact with others in your life, whether that be at home or at work. Neuroscience research has now shown us that we can literally create new neuronal patterns in our brains, thus causing transformation at a deep level. There are numerous varieties of therapy which can bring this about.
