Let’s work together
Whether it’s anxiety, a broken heart, or something else entirely, you don’t have to go through this alone anymore.
Most trauma or stress cycles back to a narcissist or self-serving person in your past or present. You can feel like there’s no hope or that there’s too much damage for you to feel better. There’s hope.
I’ll work with you one-on-one to find the best solution for your needs. Whether it’s video or telephone, I’ll create personalized strategies. Connect now and bring peace into your life again.
I am often sought-out by the media to speak about current events or trends in psychotherapy, trauma recovery or finance therapy.
(more about me below)
Hypnotherapy offers a faster, affordable option that is a proven strategy to help bring solutions and change to otherwise uncomfortable situations.
Coaching is customized to fit nearly any situation and helps motivate and bring connection with goals and ongoing support for focus and results.
Meditation is an ancient practice with a solid scientific backing which offers a balance-centric experience to manage change and transformation.
Visualize an iceberg. Consciousness is only 5-10% of our experience above the surface. The rest of that 90-95% is in the subconscious, and includes our habits, emotions, motivations, deep-seated thought and behavioral patterns, and even nervous system functioning. Even our greatest gifts and power might be dormant in the subconscious and the body, waiting to be tapped into.
The subconsious is the most effective way to release pain and reveal transformation.
Live the life you desire
How can I help?
I suffered debilitating anxiety after an assault in my early twenties and know too well the feelings of anxiety and panic; I committed to sharing strategies to help others to overcome, as I did.
I am a licensed psychotherapist and have advanced certificates from Harvard Medical School. My specialties are trauma recovery and finance therapy. I believe everyone should experience emotional and fiscal health.
I work mainly with women and marginalized individuals, organizations and groups in struggle and advocate for mental health equality and medical access for all. I am an ally to the LGBTQ community. I spent years as an advocate for Title IX.
Other Areas of Interest
I am a HeartMath Clinician, certified in Radical Forgiveness, Clincial Medication Certified through Massachusetts General Hospital and a Yoga Alliance CEU provider. I’ve been a long-standing member of the American Psychological Association.
In 2013, after many years of practice, I was initiated by the Dalai Lama in NYC, however, I am affiliated with the Plum Village Sangha founded by Thich Naht Hahn. My professional practice is inspired yet secular; all beliefs welcome.
