Passionate About Inspiring Others

I strive to be a thought leader in the field of personal growth & development. I have two Masters Degrees in Psychotherapy and Recreation & Experiential Education.

 

In addition, I have advanced training in EMDR, Post Induction Therapy (Relational Trauma), Experiential Therapy, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, and Relational Life Therapy and Advance Complex Trauma & Dissociation Training (AIR Network.)  My advanced training has highlighted the impact and awesomeness of self-empowered, self-directed neuroplasticity.  We can use this super power not only to heal but to create the life we would like to be living! 

 

I practice an integrative approach utilizing the brain’s innate capacity to evolve. This empowering approach increases and strengthens positive, growth inspiring beliefs & behaviors.

I intentionally work to create authentic connections with my clients by creating an environment that is compassionate, engaging and results oriented. Growth takes place through healthy, balanced and collaborative connections with self and others. This is the basis of my  philosophy.
