Have you been disappointed with psychotherapy? Are you looking for tangible results instead of more talk about your problem? I have nearly 20 years experience in using techniques that can produce dramatic — and often rapid — change in feelings, thought patterns and behaviors. These tools can be used to make the change process more comfortable, but they are powerful enough that they are used by organizations that help trauma victims recover from things like natural disasters and wartime violence.
I’ve gained expertise in helping people heal the root of their problem to achieve highly impactful change. If you are seeking to overcome the baggage of a difficult childhood, anxiety, insecurity, hopelessness, anger or problems with effective functioning and are open to nontraditional approaches, I encourage you to contact me so we can discuss how I might be helpful.
