We are all here to evolve into more conscious, responsible individuals. Mental health issues arise when we are out of alignment with what is happening within and around us. As we embrace and adjust to our life situations–working through our disappointments and broken expectations–our equilibrium is restored. We feel stronger and more capable to accept what is in front of us to do, with new joy and understanding. Blending psychology with spirituality, I offer tools for self-discovery, forgiveness, meditation, healthy transitions, healed relationships, and positive parenting. You will learn how to uncover hidden strengths and be on track with your life purpose.

I am a Certified Brainspotting Therapist and Consultant, trained in Phases 1, 2, 3, 4, and Master Class; plus several specialty trainings for various Brainspotting techniques.

Center for Dynamic Healing offers a mind-body-soul approach to the support you are looking for, whether that is healing, awareness, performance, or expansion. In-person, phone, and online video sessions are available.
