It was my own journey of transformation, spiritual growth, and healing that was the inspiration for my practice today. Like many, I had some very deep issues stemming from my family of origin and from emotional traumas throughout my life. Only through a committed practice of deep healing was I able to achieve significant personal breakthroughs. I found some of the disciplines and modalities that I used in my personal healing to be so powerful, that I have since been trained in them and incorporate them in my work with clients.

I am certified in hypnotherapy by the Southwest Healing Institute for the Arts (SWIHA). I also use The Emotion Code and other processes, as appropriate, based on my clients’ needs. These therapies, combined with my formal education and experience in research, provide me with the tools to provide a thorough and profound healing experience for my clients.

I earned my Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology from The New School for Social Research in New York and completed my post-doctoral training at the University of Michigan. Since then, I have had the opportunity to work at The University of Michigan, Sarah Lawrence College, The Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and The University of Louisiana.
Through my research as a Developmental Neuroscientist, I have come to believe that our current state of understanding of brain chemistry does not justify the use of pharmacological treatments for psychological issues. I was so excited to discover the work that was being done at Alternative to Meds and am so happy to be part of the team supporting those who are transitioning to other forms of treatment.
