I believe the foundation for personal satisfaction, happiness and success is rooted in deep appreciation for the power of emotion and relationship patterns that shape and foster its expression. Optimal health and wellness is achieved by managing the energy that moves us towards desired outcomes; be it resolving interpersonal conflict, hitting financial targets, or growing a successful business. I have cultivated knowledge and experience from neuroscience, traumatic stress, biofeedback, performance coaching, leadership development and strategic planning into positive and pragmatic solutions that reshape my clients’ personal and professional lives.
I have perfected the use of computer-assisted technologies to make digital tools available that support my clients’ unique needs. I employ videoconference platforms and mobile connectivity so access is simple and quick. I integrate software and mobile apps for tracking progress, meeting goals, and reinforcing growth.
Other frameworks/modalities that are foundational in my work include positive and wellness psychology, mindfulness-based stress reduction, heart rate biofeedback, EMDR, energy psychology, emotionally focused couples therapy, coherence and acceptance-commitment therapies.
