What Happens in Our Sessions?

My basic philosophy is that the human mind holds many messages received from birth to now. These messages, whether good or bad, now make up our perceptions of reality about who we are. Well-meaning parents, teachers, coaches, and other authority figures throughout our lives have been inputting data into our self-concepts compelling us to see our identity from others’ perspectives.

Most of these beliefs about ourselves are, unfortunately, not positive; I call these
“Limiting Self-Beliefs” (LSB). LSBs guide how we live our lives. They prevent us from achieving our dreams and limit us in our pursuits for excellence.

I use a variety of therapies to dissolve, change, and enhance your personal self-beliefs. If you have a fear of public speaking, collaboratively we alter the belief that that stirs the fear about speaking in public. Perhaps, you feel that you are not worthy of love, success, or any other benefit of feeling worthy. Feelings of worthiness, or the lack of, also are LSBs acquired at some time in your life. We’ll search out and isolate the LSBs that prevent you from feeling worthy and change your personal concepts to positive ones. Perhaps you need to make a major life change and something is preventing you from moving forward. LSBs that hold you back can also be identified and altered freeing you of a feeling of “stuckness”.

My therapy style is integrative. I bring together different elements of specific therapies, tailored to each one’s needs. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) Neural linguistic Programing (NLP) Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) & Hypnotherapy to help you move past negative self-beliefs as you develop the real you.

As we work collaboratively, you will begin to witness the hindering self-assumptions developed in childhood begin to have less power. It’s amazing to witness what life can bring when we you no longer are inhibited by mental programing received early in life.
