I'm an Addiction Recovery Counselor utilizing a trauma-informed somatic techniques to teach you to manage your emotions in a skillful way so you can create the life you've always wanted.

I am different from most therapists as I have a systematic path forward that you can apply in order to achieve the results you want for your Self. This starts with my 11-Session Emotional Integration Training which will give you the foundational tools to manage your emotions in a skillful way and help you tap into your own life purpose and create a life vision for your Self. In essence, I will teach you how to do therapy on yourself by giving you a basic "cosmological" framework and some simple questions to ask yourself that you can then use in virtually any situation to find your own way forward. I'm about assisting you in your own evolution into becoming the person you've always wanted to be.
