Marriage and Family Therapist, LMFT, MA
I cured myself of a chronic pain issue in college using a mindbody approach by Dr. John Sarno. Many have used this approach to cure themselves of back pain, RSI, chronic fatigue, long COVID, and more. I would be happy to have a free consultation with you to discuss how brain science, emotional awareness, and nervous system regulation can resolve a lot of chronic physical ailments.

Unfortunately, many ailments are accompanied by pain. While treatment for the underlying issue is under way the pain itself can serve little purpose other than to be an uncomfortable and distracting reminder. Prescription drugs and other substances may be used to dull or mask physical pain, but they are often accompanied by unwanted or dangerous side-effects, and may eventually lose their effectiveness. Hypnosis offers a drug and side-effect free alternative to pain management. Since pain is a signal interpreted by the the mind, it is possible to re-frame those signals by training the mind's response to them. Using the power of your own imagination to dull, direct, and distract, I'll help you learn to control the sensation and intensity of pain and find relief.

Hypnotherapist, MA, CHT
The pain you are experiencing is not who you are, it is a message that shows what's out of balance. So much chronic pain is exacerbated by stress, anxiety, depression, and emotions that feel out of control. When they show up in the body &/or mind as symptoms, we are being called to change, to create a life of ease and relief from our critical inner voices and demands. I believe that we all have a natural capacity to heal, given the right conditions to safely and gently come to know our true selves. I hold a supportive container with compassion and experience to allow your highest aspects to come forward and shine.

Marriage and Family Therapist, LMFT
I wonder if you notice any difference in your body right now, at this very moment. Can you sit with it a second longer? Perhaps, there is a small part of your body that is not feeling as strained, knotted, tingly, throbbing, or numb as it was before you made this decision to read therapist's profiles? Through an attachment somatic therapy approach, we'll pendulate from identifying and enjoying these small to large wonderful exhales of relief from pain with intentional befriending and curiosity towards pain in a welcoming of all parts of you to be recognized, heard, and validated in a journey towards the freedom to live an engaged life of presence with yourself, your dreams, your responsibilities, and your relationships.
