After counseling thousands of people for over 30 years I have learned that everything we do makes sense in the context of our lives. No one else in the world has the same fingerprints as yours. No one else has had your identical life either. I have never met a truly bad person, although I have met many people who have done things that brought harm to themselves or others.
Psychological counseling is like detective work. I try to help my clients find out as much as they can about what makes them tick and enable them to get to the heart of their problems. As they experience Energy Psychology techniques, they achieve an understanding that most of their bad habits, harmful behaviors and negative beliefs were created as imperfect solutions to threatening situations that happened a long time ago. Problems transform and behaviors change as a result.
Many people come to me who have had years of talk therapy and are still suffering emotionally. Talk therapies often take a very long time to be effective and still don’t eliminate the problem. Talk therapy only goes as far as people can remember while Energy Psychology methods can go the level beyond awareness to heal the past. Energy Psychology techniques are generally gentle and work rapidly and permanently without causing more pain and anguish.
I want to teach you how to use EFT to help yourself, and I want to assist you in resolving your problems as quickly as possible. I use a variety of Energy Psychology methods to eliminate or transform the fears, anxiety, traumas, compulsive behaviors, and negative thinking that may be holding you back from moving forward to create a happy and healthy life.
