Hello, fellow moms and dads! Just like you, I wear many hats. I’m a mom in my 40s (to humans and fur babies), wife, hypnotherapist, instructor, coach, and mindfulness teacher. My career began as a school psychologist, yoga and mindfulness teacher and expanded into client-centered, transpersonal hypnotherapy. I am a certified instructor of hypnotherapy and I help parents in their 40s and 50s breathe again. What does it mean to breathe? To let go of the tension in your body, to feel space and balance in your life, to be a better friend to yourself like you are to others, to experience inner peace, and to connect with your loved ones in a more meaningful way.
For much of my life, I was a people pleaser and professional worrier (and good at it!) with a strong inner critic. I was really good at putting all of my attention and energy toward others but rarely gave to myself – Until I entered the phase of life when it was time to start putting myself first, so I could feel happier and give more to my loved ones. Prior to learning self compassion, I became mentally and emotionally burnt out and all of the meditation in the world wasn’t helping me channel the inner Zen I desperately tried to connect with. I was confused. I didn’t know who I was anymore because I gave too much of myself. I had always been sensitive and felt others’ emotions but I didn’t know how to not hold onto them.
For 19 years, I have worked with others like you to share the life changing process of hypnotherapy and mindfulness that I too, experienced. It is my passion to help others discover inner peace and positive self image. This is not about bandaids. It is about discovering and transforming the root cause of what drives your behavior and inward mental and emotional battles. I know from experience that this is possible. I’m here to prove it. I’ve worked with countless parents like you to help them reduce anxious feelings and self critical thoughts, gain self confidence and self compassion and live a purposeful life.
I am on team “You”. I believe you have the answers within and my role is to simply guide you to your inner voice – beyond the voices of the worrier, people pleaser, inner critic and anxiousness. Your authentic self is ready to be heard. She’s calling. It’s time to step into your power and shine like the person you are underneath all that “muck”. I can help you:
- Quiet your racing, distracted mind.
- Get better sleep
- Be more connected to your loved ones
- Have a more fulfilling life
- Channel your inner Zen!
When I’m not processing with clients, you will find me spending time with my family and friends, reading, at farmer’s markets, or playing in nature. I love to hike, kayak and discover waterfalls. I love music and was a music major in college before changing gears and focusing on psychology. I am on a continuous quest to learn and explore all life has to offer.
