My Approach

My approach is rooted in psychoneuroimmunology, and I have a comprehensive understanding of holistic wellness, combining elements of hypnosis, guided imagery, mindfulness, and personalized plant-based therapy, like herbs, aromatherapy, and flower essences. Additionally, I layer in positive psychology coaching and breathwork for a well-rounded approach.

Recognizing individuals uniquely, I tailor my approach to address specific needs and imbalances, guiding clients through a journey of rejuvenation and resilience.


As someone who struggled with Complex Stress Syndromes (CPTSD) myself due to Narcissistic Abuse, I know all too well the insidiousness it causes to the body, mind, and spirit. 

With years of experience in holistic approaches, clients not only find relief from burnout or other complex stress syndromes like PTSD, and CPTSD but also gain the tools and insights needed to thrive in all aspects of their lives. Together, we embark on a journey of self-discovery and transformation, unlocking the full potential of mind, body, and spirit.
