I am a Columbia-trained, licensed clinical psychologist and health educator. I'm also certified in clinical hypnosis by the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH). Broadly, my focus has been on helping people to reduce uncomfortable physical and emotional symptoms and gain greater insight into who they are and who they want to be. 

I have also helped clients learn how to create healthier relationships, develop better self-esteem, foster greater self-compassion, release unhealthy patterns, and reach goals that are important to them. 

With the right tools, and a willingness to work toward change, it is possible to feel better, do better, and love yourself -- without needing to be perfect. And you may very well find that you are capable of far more than you ever believed.

My Focus

At present, I'm focusing on writing, teaching, and educating the public about tools for self-care, including but not limited to adopting healthy lifestyle behaviors, using techniques like self-hypnosis, guided imagery, meditation and more. I'm also devoting more time to creating audio self-hypnosis and guided imagery programs. I love creating these programs using approaches that have been shown to help with a variety of concerns - physical, emotional and behavioral. In addition, I'm dedicating more time to intuitive development - helpling people (myself included!) better access the Wise Sage that lives within all of us. 

If you'd like to know when I release a new self-development audio program or offer upcoming workshops, please sign up here. 

My Research

For the past few years, I've been seeking to learn more about what I refer to as "Tireless Caregivers" - people who take care of everyone else, often to their own detriment. All too often, Tireless Caregivers wind up exhausted, secretly resentful, and even ill because their own needs come last, if at all. If this describes you, please consider filling out my survey on this topic.
