About my Clinical Style(s)
Marriage & Family Therapy:
Experiential, Cognitive-Behavioral, Solution-Focused Brief, Relational & Systems theories all influence my clinical style. I utilize a mixture of traditional talk-therapy, assessment, intervention & client-informed feedback to customize services, in an effort to help you move past the obstacles in your life.
I will assist you in identifying your personal values, strengths, and abilities in support of your personal and professional goals.
Clinical Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy:
Heart-Centered Clinical Hypnotherapy is a much deeper process than regular hypnotherapy or talk therapy. Heart-Centered is psychotherapy in a relaxed state of consciousness to get underneath self-sabotaging patterns of behavior and agreements made in childhood that are now tripping up the adult
Hypnotherapy is an alternative curative healing method that is used to create subconscious change in a client in the form of new responses, thoughts, attitudes, behaviors or feelings.
Clinical hypnosis is an altered state of awareness, perception or consciousness that is used, by licensed and trained doctors or masters prepared individuals, for treating a psychological or physical problem.
Hypnosis is a state of inner absorption, concentration and focused attention. According to the American Psychological Association Hypnosis is a therapeutic technique in which clinicians work with individuals who have undergone a procedure designed to relax them and focus their minds.
It can be a powerful, effective therapeutic technique for a wide range of conditions, including pain, anxiety and mood disorders. Hypnosis can also help people change their habits, such as quitting smoking.
Culinary Art Therapy:
Culinary Art Therapy has its foundations in Expressive therapies which were founded by humanistic psychologist Carl Rogers. According to his daughter Natalie, "the term expressive therapy or expressive art therapy generally includes art, dance and music therapies; as well as journal writing, poetry, imagery, meditation and improvisational drama. Using the expressive arts to foster emotional healing, resolve inner conflict and awaken individual creativity is a relatively new and expanding field."
Before becoming a Marriage and Family therapist I spend decades in the culinary industry. I have been preparing a table for individuals to come together for a long time, and I can really help you in addressing complex issues. My therapeutic philosophy recognizes the influence of circular causality on behavior & in maintaining negative patterns of interaction and communication.
I'm hoping to expand upon the foundation of work Carl Rogers inspired. His work explored other avenues to connection & authentic expression which invited individual mindfulness, relational repair & restoration. We will do this work together through the use of food.
I understand the importance of having a safe restorative space to express, repair, and heal.

Counseling, Guidance & Support
We work with Adults, Couples in intimate relationships & Families in crisis to nurture change and enhance connection. My approach views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members. My view emphasizes relationships as an important factor in psychological health. It is my belief that, regardless of the origin of the problem, and regardless of whether the clients consider it an “individual” or “family” issue, involving intimate partners in solutions is often beneficial.
