I use Positive Psychology Practices and specialize in Narcissistic Abuse Recovery, Codependency, Inner Child Healing using Positive Psychology and Trauma Unlocking procedures. I work online, globally through Zoom to help anyone heal from the effects caused by trauma. This also helps healing of CPTSD – Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and PTSD – Post Traumatic Stress Disorder by use of somatic relief healing such as EMDR – Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing, Brain Spotting Practices and Hypnotherapy to process the trauma locked in the body. I have taken courses in Neuroscience, which means we can understand the brain and body chemistry and work to improve our overall feeling when we understand what the good and bad chemicals in your body are doing for you. I teach how to regulate the nervous system and reduce the effects of stress on the body by providing tools and detailed training.
I offer packages of my therapy to better serve you. Where we can have a session together and then you can work at home as well, with tools that I will provide for you to use between our sessions. This allows for more time to make lasting changes in the healing process.

Brain Spotting (BSP) is a revolutionary trauma therapy designed to treat a variety of issues, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and the aftereffects of narcissistic emotional abuse. Unlike conventional talk therapy, BSP targets the subcortical brain, where trauma is stored, through controlled eye positioning. This method helps down-regulate the amygdala (the fear center) and releases the traumatic stress lodged within the body, effectively transforming negative memories and responses into positive ones. This somatic approach integrates neuroscience and polyvagal theory, offering a pathway to regulate emotional reactions and foster healing. Brain Spotting is considered a local and personal healing process, allowing individuals to free themselves from life-interrupting triggers and embrace the life they deserve.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a well-established form of psychotherapy that's been proven effective for a vast array of psychological issues, from mental illness to relationship problems. Its efficacy is backed by a wealth of scientific evidence, showing it can improve functioning and enhance quality of life, often performing as well or better than other therapies or medications. CBT focuses on altering negative thought patterns and behaviors, promoting better-coping strategies and confidence in personal abilities. It is a collaborative approach tailored to the individual, where the therapist and client work together to devise and implement a treatment plan. By focusing on the present, CBT helps clients learn to use their inherent strengths to change their thinking and behavior for lasting improvement in their life situations, regardless of past or present difficulties.
EMDR - Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing therapy is a recognized psychotherapeutic treatment for trauma and emotional distress, specifically effective for conditions such as PTSD - post traumatic stress disorder and CPTSD - complex post traumatic stress disorder often rooted in childhood trauma and abuse. It operates on the premise that the mind can heal from psychological trauma, similar to the body's recovery from physical injury. EMDR posits that traumatic memories, which can cause PTSD symptoms and become somatically stuck, lead to physical and emotional reactions as if the traumatic event is occurring in the present. By employing bilateral stimulation in a safe therapeutic setting, EMDR facilitates the processing of these memories, unblocking the brain's natural healing capacity, and allows for the replacement of negative self-beliefs with positive ones, leading to the resolution of trauma and significant symptom relief.
Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic technique that employs hypnosis to induce a state of heightened attention and suggestibility for treating various psychological and medical issues. Likening the unconscious mind to an outdated operating system, hypnotherapy aims to "update" our mental framework, altering how we perceive and emotionally respond to past experiences without changing the actual memories. This method allows individuals to reconfigure their internal responses to memories, lessening the impact of past traumas and fostering a more positive self-perception. Benefits of hypnotherapy include stress and pain reduction, improved sleep / anxiety, assistance in breaking negative habits, emotional healing, enhanced focus, and much more. Through reframing the internal narrative, hypnotherapy can transform previously distressing memories into sources of strength and learning.
Internal Family Systems - IFS is an evidence-based psychotherapy model that posits the mind as naturally multiple, with distinct subpersonalities or 'parts' that each carry valuable qualities and play particular roles within a person's psyche. These parts—comprising Exiles (wounded child-like aspects), Managers (protective parts preventing harm), and Firefighters (reactive parts dealing with threats)—operate around a core 'True Self,' which inherently knows how to heal and integrate these parts. IFS therapy aims to recognize and appreciate the protective intent of parts often deemed negative. The therapeutic process involves helping individuals acknowledge, negotiate with, and ultimately transform these parts, allowing for unburdening deep-seated wounds and promoting the emergence of the True Self as the leader within the internal system.
Meditation is an ancient practice recently validated by modern medicine for its numerous health benefits, including trauma informed recovery and spiritual growth. It works by focusing attention, quieting the mind's noise, and inducing a state of inner peace, which can significantly reduce stress by calming the body's panic responses—fight, flight, and freeze. Incorporating meditation into therapy sessions can greatly enhance their effectiveness, as even brief meditation and breathing exercises can produce substantial benefits. These include stress reduction, improved concentration, and emotional health, and many more. Its simplicity and accessibility, requiring no special equipment, make meditation a versatile tool for personal well-being, allowing individuals to practice it anywhere.
Positive psychology is a branch of psychology that explores the aspects of the human experience that contribute to a fulfilling and meaningful life. It emphasizes positive experiences, traits, and institutions to enhance individual and collective well-being. Building on the humanistic theories of thinkers like Maslow and Rogers, positive psychology identifies five core elements of well-being—Positive Emotion, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning, and Accomplishment (PERMA™)—and provides strategies to foster these aspects in everyday life. This field encourages people to leverage their strengths and virtues to increase happiness, improve mental and physical health, build resilience, enrich relationships, and boost productivity. By promoting an optimistic mindset, positive psychology aims to shift focus from rectifying weaknesses to nurturing what inherently contributes to a person's growth and happiness.
