How it began...
It's so nice to see you here! This is a little bit about me.
Just like you, I feel deeply. I understand the feeling that there is more to explore within you and
the desire to connect with your soul’s purpose and intention in this life.
For much of my life, I was a people pleaser, professional worrier (and good at it!) with a strong inner critic.
The issue was, I didn’t only feel my stuff, but I had what felt like a cursed ability to feel everyone else’s emotions too.
I was really good at putting all of my attention and energy toward others but rarely gave to myself –
Until I had no choice because I burnt out. Within this same timeframe in life, I also had a series of "Spiritually Transformative Experiences" and a near death experience.
I felt like my world was turning upside down and inside out. I questioned everything I thought I knew. I was more confused than ever about what reality was and what my purpose was in this life. My strong logical mind fought and questioned what was happening with my inner being and spiritual experiences every step of the way.
I was confused and disconnected from myself because I had given everything I had to everyone else prior to this time. Life was changing before my eyes and I didn't know who I was anymore. All of the emotions and behaviors that didn't serve me were coming up to the surface and felt overwhelming to manage.
I felt like the person I thought myself to be was unraveling, but I didn't yet know who I was becoming.

How I can help
For 20 years, I have worked with others like you to share the life changing process of hypnosis and mindfulness that I too experienced.
It is my passion to help others discover inner peace, freedom and soul connection. This is not about bandaids.
In order to connect with your soul, you also need to support your human. After all, you're here to experience life.
This is about discovering and transforming the root cause of what drives your behavior and inward mental and emotional battles. And, it is about connecting to your higher self, where the real insights are gained. I know from experience that this is possible. I’m living proof of it.
I’ve worked with countless sensitive feelers like you to help them reduce anxious feelings, guilt and self critical thoughts, gain self confidence, self compassion and live a life connected to their soul’s purpose.
I believe you have the answers within and my role is to simply guide you to your inner voice – beyond the voices of the people pleaser, worrier, inner critic and anxiousness.
Your authentic self is ready to be heard. It’s time to step into your power and shine like the person you are meant to be.
When I’m not processing with clients, you will find me spending time with my family (I am a wife and mom of two teens!) and friends, reading, at farmer’s markets, or playing and recharging in nature.
I love to hike, kayak and be around waterfalls, lakes and streams. I love music and was a music major in college before shifting gears and focusing on psychology and emotional wellness.
Early in my career, I was a school psychologist and yoga teacher, a mindfulness teacher and then hypnotherapist.
I am on a continuous quest to learn and explore all life has to offer.
I look forward to having the opportunity to walk by your side on this journey of self discovery.
