Let's work together to overcome crises, learn to calm yourself down, build confidence, feel more hopeful, communicate more effectively, build and have better relationships, feel comfortable in your own skin, feel whole, and much more! My areas of focus include overcoming perfectionism; trauma (e.g. rape, abuse, car accidents...); interracial and interfaith couples; EMDR; and cross-cultural issues. I have a warm and direct style.

Passion for my work combines my interests in the body/mind connection, love of diverse cultures, and fascination with human nature. I love what I do and truly respect my clients' willingness to bring their inner world to the forefront. For more information, please visit my website at HolisticGardner.Com
