I offer a dynamic and integrated healing system that helps clients get to the true root of their difficulties in order to clear past pain and move through the blocks that have kept them feeling stuck.
Through working 1:1 you will learn and practice tools to help you release old emotions, rewrite negative beliefs, regulate your nervous system, and reconnect with your innate inner strength, peace, and wholeness.
This multidimensional and integrated approach is a safe container in which to build trust, practice new healthy dynamics, and receive focused attention and care. It is designed to help clients experience real, sustainable change, and takes into account individual, collective, and ancestral trauma that lives in the subconscious. I am focused on supporting post-traumatic growth and personal expansion through helping clients reclaim wholeness, personal power, emotional freedom, and a deep sense of self love.
My approach works gently yet powerfully on subconscious, somatic, and spiritual levels, as well as building insights and understanding in the cognitive, conscious mind. Sessions are focused on increasing awareness, connecting with inner resources, cultivating self-compassion and self-trust, and finding safety in relationships. We also work specifically with the mind-body connection to address trauma responses at their root through encouraging nervous system regulation. This work will help you to release the hold of the past so you can experience more emotional balance, intuition, creativity, confidence, and connection.
The work is influenced by a combination of multiple modalities including:
Insight & depth psychology
Trauma focused hypnotherapy
Internal family systems
Adult attachment repair
Inner child healing
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction
Spiritual growth practices
I approach healing from an individual, collective, and ancestral lens, with a particular focus on attachment and developmental trauma. Sessions are always individualized and guided by your unique needs, desires, and goals. We work together to co-create the experience that will best support you.
This work is not traditional talk therapy. As a certified clinical hypnotherapist and mental health coach, my approach includes hypnotherapy, meditation, somatic practices, as well as insight building and teaching coping skills. I bring all my clinical knowledge and experience from my formal education in psychotherapy, yet offer a non-traditional mind-body-spirit approach.
I shifted my practice from traditional therapy to this more holistic and integrated approach after experiencing the incredible results of hypnotherapy for myself. Similar to my own experience and that of the hundreds of clients I've worked with, a scientific study found that hypnotherapy had a 93% success rate after only 6 sessions, as compared to behavior therapy that showed a 72% success rate after 22 sessions and psychoanalysis which had a 38% success rate after 600 sessions.* The amount of sessions you will need as a client will depend on your situation, however clients typically work with me anywhere from several months to a couple years, based on their personal history and goals. This work is designed to help you work smarter, not harder. It guides you to uncovering and healing the root of your difficulties in order to reach new levels of love and acceptance. It will help you liberate yourself from old trauma patterns, reclaim your dignity and wholeness, and empower you to show up in the world confidently and creatively in a way that serves both yourself and the larger collective.
This process is about connecting you to resources inside yourself to help you feel relaxed, safe, and strong. Together we explore your present day issues, and allow for healthy expression of emotion and energy. We will explore the origins of any negative emotions, beliefs, and behaviors and then rewrite new intentions at these pivotal points. I will teach you concepts and skills that will help you feel confident and safe. Through experiential techniques, you will rewire your brain, regulate your nervous system, and reset your energy to increase your ability to feel whole and hopeful again.
The first time we meet we will get to know each other and I will learn what your goals are. Each client has unique needs and intentions, and together we will explore in a way that feels supportive, safe, and inspiring to you. While each session is specific to each individual and day, a typical session begins with some discussion about what’s been going on in your life, then I will guide you into different practices that may include hypnosis, meditation, breathwork, coaching, and body awareness exercises. The work also incorporates energy healing, spiritual connection, and tapping into both of our intuitions.
This combination of modalities is effective and efficient. It is also deep work that requires gentleness and patience, as well as commitment and presence. While shifts are noticed immediately and rapidly, it takes repetition and reinforcement to be sustainable. I am devoted to supporting your post-traumatic growth, and your commitment to this process is also essential. A person gets out of this work what they are willing to put into it.
My goal is to give you the helping hand you need to empower and free yourself from the past so that you can live in a way that supports your liberation, empowerment, joy, and love.
I am not licensed as a psychotherapist, and this is not traditional talk therapy. As a certified clinical hypnotherapist and mental health coach, my approach includes hypnotherapy, meditation, somatic practices, as well as insight building through psychoeducation. California does not have an explicit statue or regulation requiring licensure for hypnotherapy. As an MSW I am qualified to teach mental health education, and I bring all my clinical knowledge and experience from my formal education and past work experience in psychotherapy, yet I offer a non-traditional mind-body-spirit approach. You can see my professional resume here. As a former social worker, I continue to consider myself a mandated reporter and abide by the ethical standards of licensed mental health professionals. I screen all clients carefully, and if you have a psychiatric disorder that is outside of my scope of practice as a hypnotherapist, I will refer to you to a provider who is licensed to treat mental disorders.
