What Happens in Our Sessions:

Sessions typically last approximately 90 minutes.

First Session:

Your first appointment is an assessment session where we talk about your personal life history and the origin(s) of the difficulties you are experiencing.

We then set goals for our work together. I will also lead you in a brief relaxation and hypnosis exercise which will be recorded for you to listen to and work with at home.

Subsequent Counseling Sessions:

After the initial assessment session, we work to achieve your goals by addressing the areas of your life that are impacting you in a negative way. Our work will typically include talk therapy and counseling, and inner work such as hypnosis or cellular release therapy.

Depending on your needs and goals, here’s what you can expect as we work through the process of psychotherapy:

My Model of Psychotherapy

A Holistic Model

I use a holistic model of therapy with women that takes into account the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of your life. My goal is to help assist you in powerfully living from the true essence of your own heart and soul.

Ultimately, I see women’s work in therapy as spiritual in nature and that your psyche has a higher Self or Soul as the center of your identity. Working within this framework means looking at your life and life challenges within a spiritual context to bring about greater healing.

Our Relationship is of Utmost Importance in the Healing Process

I strive to ensure that our therapy relationship is genuine and caring. It is important that you feel safe and secure in our sessions, as this will influence the outcome of therapy.

I see myself as your equal – I am merely a guide for your inner journey. I will follow your lead in sessions and work at your pace.

Increasing Your Awareness Leads to Change

The inner work that you do is intended to help you become more aware of your unconscious thoughts, behaviors and feelings so that you can then make them conscious.  As your awareness increases, you have more control over how your problems affect you and greater ability to change them.

As you address what comes into your conscious awareness, you will achieve fulfillment through becoming more whole. You’ll experience greater clarity and harmony between your conscious and unconscious and feel better about your life. 

Releasing the Effects of Trauma, Difficulty, or Limiting Patterns Allows You to Move Forward

During the process of our work together, you will clear the energy, impact, and emotion that been imprinted on your body, mind, and emotions from difficult situations or traumatic experiences.  When painful energy remains unprocessed and unresolved, it can create blocks or limit your full and joyful expression of your heart and your sharing of your soul’s gifts.

As you clear the experiences and effects of trauma, your energy system literally expands and allows you to move closer to who truly are.  This allows you to live more fully, more peacefully, and joyfully in all that you are and all that you do.

Accessing Your Own Inner Resources Leads to Greater Freedom and Trust

As you clear away the dust and debris from the path of your past, you are able to more clearly access your own inner guidance. Knowing that you can rely on your own inner guidance, and trusting that you can interpret the signals you are receiving from it, allows you a greater sense of freedom to move in the direction that your soul leads.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who are these services for?

Many of us grew up being taught that it was dangerous to show up powerfully, creatively, and fully engaged in our lives.  Even by well-meaning and caring adults, many of us received the message that who we were and what we did was not OK to those who were in authority.

If you grew up with either obvious or subtle messages like these, in order to remain safe, you may find yourself holding back or rejecting who you truly are and what your heart truly wants for you.  Dis-owning or withholding who you are can cause huge amounts of personal pain and suffering.  It can cause difficulty in your relationships, with your career, and even in your energy level, focus, creativity and overall well-being.

I invite you to read through the statements below and identify if any of them are true for you

  • You are feeling disconnected from yourself, your life, or your loved ones
  • You are struggling with painful emotional patterns such as anxiety or depression
  • You are preparing for – or are in the midst of – some kind of major life transition such as changing jobs, leaving or starting a relationship, or starting a family, etc… and are feeling grief, nervousness, or hesitation in moving forward
  • You feel lost in your life and confused as to what you want or how to move forward
  • You have experienced abuse or trauma in the past and suspect that it may be affecting your current life or relationships
  • You have a pattern of being in abusive or painful relationships
  • You have difficulty trusting yourself
  • You have difficulty letting go of past hurts and find yourself thinking about them with shame, anger, grief, or regret
  • You are critical and judgmental of yourself or others
  • You get into cycles of blaming others or outside influences for your current experience
  • You make a conscious decision to do things differently but then find that you “sabotage” yourself, keeping you from fully stepping into your intention
  • You desire a greater Spiritual or heart centered, joyful experience of life

If you find one, or even many of the statements above true for you, this can be a sign that doing some personal inner healing work may be beneficial for you.  Doing inner healing work allows you to release the pain of the past and limiting beliefs so that you can connect more deeply with yourself, as well as others.

I offer services that allow you, in a way that is gentle and supportive, to experience a greater sense of Self, and Self love, so that you can explore, resolve, and heal the root cause of the difficulties you are struggling with.

If you would like to speak with me about what you are looking for and how these services may be of benefit to you, please contact me to schedule a consultation.

During your consultation we will discuss where you are at, what you are looking for and how we may work together to support your process. This consultation will assist you in determining if these services are a good fit for you.

What is the process like?

The course and length of our work together will be determined by the presenting issues and your own personal goals. Each session lasts approximately 90 minutes to two hours.

Typically, I record the visualization and affirmation work done in the first session so that you can listen to this recording at home. I may also record subsequent sessions, depending on what is being addressed.

There are some issues that can be addressed and resolved in a few sessions, while other issues may be more complex and take longer to address, during your initial session, I may be able to have an estimated idea as to how many sessions we might want to look at for the issues you are addressing.

Healing occurs in layers. Sometimes clients find that after initial goals have been achieved, maintenance sessions are beneficial to either address new realizations pertinent to the initial presenting issue, or work on new issues that have surfaced.

The ultimate goal that I hold for each client is to experience healing, expansion, and integration of body, mind, spirit, and emotions that allows for the joyful and healthy expression of the Self.

What are some of the tools that will be used in my sessions?

Cellular Release Therapy™ – Cellular Release Therapy is a highly effective and thorough hypnotherapy technique that is used to release accumulated programming, traumatic events, or patterns from the body, mind, emotions, energy system, and soul. Due to the nature of the protocol used for this process, the emotional charge, thinking patterns, and beliefs that are created due to traumatic events, or patterns of events, are cleared without having to re-experience the trauma itself. This work is incredibly powerful and effective.

Core Transformation – This work is based on the idea that all patterns of thought, behavior, or emotion have positive intentions for you. Even those patterns that you may consider challenging such as depression, or anxiety, want something wonderful for you! This work assists you in realizing the positive intention of challenging patterns of thought, behavior or emotion, healing any trauma or mis-perceptions that created them, and integrating them with the Self.

Energy Recall & Return – Addressing relationship difficulties by releasing and returning any energy you have taken on from another person or situation as well as recalling all of your own energy, healing this energy, and integrating it back into your own body, heart, soul, and energy system.

Inner Plane Communication – Communication with another person’s higher self in order to work through trauma, conflict, creating personal boundaries, etc..

Regression Therapy (Including Past Life Regression Therapy) – Moving through time to bring healing and change to key events or causal areas of challenging patterns.

Self-hypnosis – A self-directed hypnosis process that you will do on your own to deepen the healing between sessions.

Visualization/Affirmation – Using your inner awareness to “see, sense, hear, or feel” various situations or scenarios and then expanding the possibility for your having the experience of a desired outcome.
