Life Without Anxiety Is Possible

I help people break the negative cycle of anxiety by teaching them lifelong skills.


Natural Anxiety Relief

Anxiety is overwhelming. Whether you have racing thoughts, rumination, panic, or are afraid, anxiety can prevent you from living your ideal life.

Learn how to not only manage your anxiety, but also finally be independently happy and at peace.

My therapeutic style is generally very active and solution-focused. I usually meet with clients 2-4 times per month, and I follow a simple formula for helping you achieve your goals.


Identify your primary goals, potential barriers, and then create a plan of action


Learn personal techniques and skills to make positive changes and become independently successful


Make sure you are on track and modify program as needed

Natural Relief

I use a combination of natural and holistic techniques to provide the best treatment


Learn skills for positive change in your own home or office


Save years of practice and achieve a deeper state by combining neuroscience with meditation


Learn how to improve control, flexibility, and resiliency via "physical therapy" for your brain


Hypnotherapy allows the active mind to rest while the subconscious mind takes over and provides healing

Break The Negative Cycle

If you break a circle anywhere, it is no longer a circle.

My job is to identify the weak points in your cycle of anxiety and help you fix and heal those patterns.
