My three greatest passions:
We all get stuck in harmful patterns. Our brains are incredibly efficient and try to work with what we know and have done in the past. I show couples how to show up differently and teach them how to work through their issues in a way that gets to the real argument (because, let’s face it: what we argue about is rarely what we’re really arguing about). I’ll show you how confrontations are actually opportunities for deep vulnerability, healing and growth.
Rise from surviving to thriving
Survivors of trauma want to heal, get unstuck, or become even stronger having been through it. I work with issues ranging from chronic stress to post traumatic stress disorder. Whether you’ve been a victim of childhood abuse, a frightening car crash, or other traumatic event, I will walk alongside you on your journey to healing and recovery.
Rise and thrive
The thoughts and stories we tell ourselves trigger emotions, which drive our behaviors, bringing results (whether good, bad or ugly!). Let’s identify your beliefs and examine what you’ve been telling yourself so we can redirect and bring the results you’ve been wanting. The brain efficiently does what it’s always done…. until new neuropathways are created. You are capable of so much more than you know. I’ll help you get there!
