Individual Psychotherapy Sessions
In person or Online: I help people move forward in life by facilitating blockages caused by trauma, anxiety, depression, behavioral addictions, grief, relationship issues, self esteem, and sleep problems. I have a passion to support people who are highly sensitive as well as work with the unconscious anl spiritual aspect of life. In an atmosphere that is non judgemental and present you are invited to express feelings and beliefs to allow natural insight. As a result of this greater insight, more choice becomes available on how to act, feel, and think, less anxiety, greater freedom, greater joy, more effective action and communication. I work with people’s shadow or unconscious parts that can cause behavioral problems, triggers, and emotional reactions, By shedding light on the hidden parts, a new part is allowed to emerge like a lotus blossom emerges from muddy waters. Using relational, humanistic, somatic, shadow work modalities, personal growth natural unfolds in an environment conducive to greater insight and behavior change.
For all gender and sexual orientation: Emotionally focused couples therapy is a structured approach to couples therapy formulated in the 1980’s by Dr. Sue Johnson who developed alongside the science of adult attachment and bonding to expand understanding about what is happening in couple relationships. Research studies on EFT find that 70-75% of couples who go through the Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% show significant improvements. I am a certified EFT facilitator. I would be happy to meet with you and your partner to go over what’s involved in the couples therapy.
Highly Sensitive Person or HSP
According to researcher, Dr. Elaine Aron, 20% of the population are Highly Sensitive People. They are empathic, intuitive, perceptive, and caring people, sensitive to odors, noise, bright lights, and other other stimuli. Due to over-stimulation from the environment or other people, they tend to need extra rest and often need solitude to re-balance. As an HSP myself, I offer individual and group psychotherapy sessions that support the challenges that HSP face in work and relationships.
Ayurvedic Psychology Sessions
Ayurvedic Psychology helps to awake one’s memory of the peace and unity that already exists within each human being, it’s a restoration and experience of the wholeness that has been forgotten.

From there, a protocol is given to bring back balance and harmony in the mind and body. Counseling sessions also address pragyaparad (sanskrit word meaning mistake of the mind) which gives rise to suffering.

Ayurvedic Support for Grief
Ayurveda offers a traditional support treatment to assist in healing the emotional heart from loss, life transitions, and mourning. Grief, different than depression is usually associated with the loss of a loved one, home, health, job, or pet.
Ayurveda offers a body and vibrational treatment traditionally called hrdya basti or heart basti which is a dough dam placed over the heart chakra and filled with herbalized oil that contains Ashoka herb, rose, and Arjuna herb. The oil helps to absorb stress and assists the release of sadness and grief. The basti is preceded by transdermal marma therapy and emotional coaching called sattvavijaya, which is an Ayurvedic term in Sanskrit which means overcoming darkness with the light of consciousness.
This treatment does not claim to cure grief but offers compassionate support in the process of it, to help the heavy emotions move along, and possibly lessen the weight of the emotions. This treatment can also help with depression. Time of session: 90 minutes. Several sessions are recommended over a three month period.
