My Focus

Over the last 20 years, my passion has been to research and use all the latest and most effective scientific therapy methods to support my clients in their emotional struggling and suffering. I have used EMDR (the gold standard for trauma) for years with amazing results. And although I considered EMDR to be the best way to desensitize and repocess emotional pain, I found something better.

I developed Accelerated NeuroHealing™, a unique cutting edge therapy that gives my clients faster and more complete healing relief than EMDR alone. I actually developed it for myself to address a long standing trauma with which I was dealing. I found Accelerated NeuroHealing™ to be 10 times more powerful. It not only worked quickly but also gave a deeper release of emotion. I am excited share it with you. Let me help you!
