Throughout my life I have experienced my share of struggles: a challenging childhood, broken relationships in early adulthood, and a rough transition into motherhood. It was through these painful experiences that I gained a deep appreciation for the complexity of the human condition and the need for compassion and guidance along the way. 

After years of trying to “fix” what I thought was broken in me with self-help books, courses, various therapists and healing modalities, I decided I wanted to be hypnotized so that someone else could fix me. I was desperate and tired. The Universe led me to a phenomenal Depth Hypnosis Practitioner. Through my work with her, I realized that I was not broken and that deep inside I was whole, wise, and actually kind of great; I just forgot how to see those parts of myself because I was so focused on the parts I didn't like. Depth Hypnosis's holistic approach to mental health changed everything for me and I see it doing the same for my clients.

Dedicated to Helping You Heal

The healing I received from Depth Hypnosis changed my life. Curious about this highly-effective yet lesser-known form of therapy, I began taking courses at the Foundation of the Sacred Stream, a school of consciousness in Berkeley, CA, founded by Isa Gucciardi, PhD, also the founder of Depth Hypnosis. Under Dr. Gucciardi's tutelage I received extensive training and later certification in the practice of Depth Hypnosis. Today my goal is to help others who are struggling to see themselves for who they truly are: creative, wonderful, unique beings. 

When we're in the depths of despair and depression and running anxiety to propel ourselves forward just so we can make it through another day, being alive becomes a thoroughly exhausting experience. I know from personal experience, as well as by witnessing those who come to me for help. They are tired and just so over the daily struggle. With Depth Hypnosis, we are able to penetrate the exhaustion by using the altered state to tap into that boundless place of love, wisdom, and calmness that is within each of us. It is from this place that the rest comes, which allows an understanding that we are all deserving of compassion, forgiveness, and love to arise. First we rest, then we build inner strength, then we work to heal the issues that are causing our discomfort. 

I have seen and experienced the relief and healing Depth Hypnosis can bring to those who engage with the work. Childhood sexual, physical, and emotional abuse; narcissistic parents; addiction; anxiety and depression, are areas in which I have witnessed profound growth and healing. Also, an independent study found that Depth hypnosis provides significant relief for people suffering from anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms and increases quality of life. If you are in pain or are feeling stuck or numb, I hope you will seek help, either from myself or someone else who is committed to helping you heal. You deserve happiness.
