Call for an appointment to plant seeds of hope, to be inspired to find your strengths, and to learn stress management & resiliency skills to help prevent or cleanse any psychosomatic issues you may have.  Chronic stress, anxiety and worrying are the leading causes of reasons people go to see doctors for illnesses and angst within.  Physical stress caused by mental distress is called psychosomatic disorders, often coming from suppressed emotions, and are very real and should be taken seriously.  Incorporating easy to learn mind/body skills to learn to accept and then let things emotionally go in your mind and body, sooner then later, can both alleviate and prevent you from developing stress related illnesses.


Please call for our appointment to have your holistic growth begin.  You can have a 
free 15-minute consultation to learn more about individual, couples, group therapy,
workshops, and/or professional life and spiritual coaching.

(IN PERSON or ONLINE Sessions)   Thank you for your referrals.  

Come Learn Awareness, Healing, and Resiliency techniques to help your mind/body and spiritual connection to stress and how it has affected your moods, emotional stablility, and/or physical illness.  Becoming aware of where your stress is inside will promote healing and wellness as you learn to breathe it away and process the insight you will gain about your past and current issues possibly keeping you stuck. 

You can learn how to use Advanced Integrative Therapy (AIT) breath and energy work to help empower you.  Please read my published article on the process and benefits of learning this life changing technique to enhance your energy, self-awareness, self-worth, interpersonal relationships, peace, strength, and living as your empowered authentic-self. 

Come learn the many cognitive and somatic techniques to cleanse your stress within, about a particular incident, stressor, negative feeling, or trigger lodged inside.  You will become aware of how your body hears what your minds says and what to do to become cleansed of these thoughts and feelings that are hurting you.  You can cleanse any anquish, breathe it away through your energy centers, and move into a positive direction.  Then, we will work on you bringing in, and instilling new positive core beliefs to strengthen your emotions and body to become resilient.  Please see the testimonials here of how others have healed themselves of their distructive stress within and then brought in positive thoughts, feelings, and energy.   I've experienced my approach helping others learn to heal from the inside out as they have practiced their daily proactive "Resiliency Routine"(C) to gain ongoing insight and growth.

I'm very passionate in teaching Advanced Integrative Therapy (AIT) to clients to help them get rid of chronic and acute stress, as well as, fears and phobias of Anything; dogs, flying, toxic people, relatives, events, driving, triggers, and any of their or others' past issues they have embodied.  I'll teach you the significance of mind/body & spiritual awareness for you to understand where you hold your stress, how stress comes from the mind into the body, and how you can immediately release it. 

You can easilly and affectively learn to cleanse any stress, anger, and emotion out of your body which you has lodged inside of you causing you physical and mental discomfort. It's been very rewarding work to teach people this relaxation and energy shifting technique.  You too can learn AIT, which will help you move on, change your perception, and negative energy forever.  By cleansing any negative energy you have been holding onto will open up space to bring in new positive strength, healthy energy, core beliefs, and experiences to enhance your ongoing resiliency, healing, and physical and mental wellness.
