I am a Licensed Professional Counselor(LPC) with 25+ years of experience. My training and experience led me to become a certified Heart Centered Hypnotherapist, a practitioner of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) , Reiki, and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique).
My journey to help others began in New Jersey, where I participated and then facilitated women's empowerment groups. I became inspired and followed my passion back to graduate school in Florida for my Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology. Along with my small part-time practice I began to teach psychology and counseling courses at Palm Beach State College. Teaching gives you the opportunity to learn, so I value that time because as I taught students how to counsel others, I honed my own skills and learned new therapeutic approaches. I had visited the mountains in North Carolina many years before and felt a strong connection that brought me back here when I retired from Florida. I feel that I am finally home and have opened a private practice in Flat Rock, NC where I use Hypnotherapy and EFT as my core focus and branch out by utilizing and consolidating my other therapeutic tools in a holistic approach.
In my practice, every therapeutic journey must begin with an "Intention". It sets up a strong foundation to use as a springboard to dive deeply into areas of dis-ease in the mind, body, and soul. My role is to facilitate the client to guide her into healing her own body by designing a unique protocol that meets the needs of each individual client. The goal of the first session is to find out how I can help people achieve clarity through an initial interview and an explanation of how I might help, and then together, decide which therapeutic path to follow. Whether it be hypnosis, tapping or a more traditional approach, the decision is a joint one as we partner together to find and reach your life's purpose.
