I help people address their negative experiences and feelings around anxiety, depression, limiting beliefs, physical challenges and other forms of discomfort. This is accomplished with intentional questioning, empathic listening and by guiding my clients through a process of “psychological acupressure” known as EFT, or simply “tapping”. It is a technique that involves contacting acupressure points while focusing on troubling thoughts or conditions. These processes help my clients let go of what is weighing them down or holding them back from reaching their goals or experiencing optimal wellbeing. All sessions are conducted online, typically via Zoom.
The work that I do with clients requires that I show up with authenticity, integrity, and care. In doing so I am able to connect with and hold space for my clients as they do the work to empower themselves. I love being a witness to the powerful changes that are possible with these tools.
I have been able to work with a wide range of people in various contexts. In my career I have been a massage therapist, substance abuse prevention counselor, research psychologist, program evaluator for a public university, and senior administrator for a large urban k12 school district. I have also worked as a teacher, consultant, mentor, and tutor. Throughout all of these experiences, my ultimate focus and interest has always been on building connections with others and supporting people in being their most authentic selves. The work I do now as a practitioner is in true alignment with my heart’s calling, and allows me to put all of my training, skills, and life experience to use for my clients.
On a personal level I am a husband, a father of a young energetic child, and a cat guardian. I have faced adversity my whole life by having cerebral palsy from birth, but have overcome obstacles with my chin up and with the support of loving family and friends.
I am excited to expand my practice and have the opportunity to share my skills and expertise with those who are looking to make positive changes in their lives and are open to guidance and the powerful techniques I use to support them in reaching their optimal selves.
