I am certified in NLP, Hypnotherapy, Appreciative Inquiry, Wellness Coaching, The Unique Self Emergence Process, Dynamic Enneagram, Sound-Voice-Music Healing, and trained in EMDR, Crisis Counseling, Performance Wellness and Critical Incident Stress Management.
Additionally I have supplemental training in Positive Psychology, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Buddhist Psychology, Enneagram Typology, Mindfulness Practices and Cognitive Behavior Therapy, as well as twenty years experience as an international consultant and trainer.
and in my heart…
I believe the true goal of any psychotherapy is not only to increase joy and limit suffering, but also to help you maximize your strengths, potential, resiliency and well-being.
I believe we can do this by uncovering and exploring the patterns, habits and beliefs that keep you stuck, as well those that energize, motivate, and propel you forward. Using the knowledge that emerges from this investigation, you can learn to train the mind, rewire the brain and begin living life with strength, vitality and joy.
