Clinical Practice

I have had the opportunity to play a significant role in helping clients resolve issues in their lives, overcome obstacles, and heal, using contemporary psychotherapeutic techniques. Current research shows us the importance of dealing with mind and body as a whole, rather than focusing separately on thoughts, emotions, or physical manifestations of bodily symptoms.

Every person is an individual, and it is of utmost importance for me to understand your unique concerns, experiences, style, and goals. Our first meeting is a consultation in which I gain an understanding of the issues that are of concern to you. From that information we develop an appropriate individualized psychotherapy treatment program which facilitates your being able to make the necessary changes to overcome obstacles, and allows for the growth and resiliency  that will  lead you to mind and body wholeness.  For a full description of the specialties in my practice, please visit the Specialties page.

Training Program

I provide a complete training program in Clinical Hypnosis, including Introductory, Intermediate and Advanced Courses, and consultation for licensed mental health and medical professionals and graduate students in these fields. These courses are certified by the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis. I also offer courses utilizing hypnotic principles for healers in various professions, in order to expand their skills and support the treatment they provide.  Please see Classes Schedule.
