28 years ago after a cancer diagnosis, a doctor gave me 6 months to live. And here I am - not just a survivor but a THRIVER and proof that holistic healing is possible. I understand the after effects of medications and limits of the medical system. I had to find my own answers. In my more than 3 decades of experience, I've learned how to tap into the phenomenal healing power of the brain to reduce stress, anxiety and chronic pain. I am passionate about helping people master their mindset, shift their energy and heal from within.
I had a fall that led to excruciating pain in my hands & wrists which became debilitating. As a professional coach, my specialty was helping clients bounce back from adversity and turn obstacles into steppingstones towards their goals. So, I decided to become my own client and look for ways to turn this “lemon” into lemonade.
My research led me to the benefits that hypnotherapy and mindfulness mediation had on chronic pain and, when I began to experience relief, I was ecstatic! The results were transformational and, when I was able to get my own pain under control, I realized that these techniques were something that also benefit other chronic pain sufferers.
I became certified as a hypnotherapist and mindfulness meditation teacher so that I could help others learn and implement the pain-management strategies I found so helpful. Empowering others to better manage their pain has become my passion and, coincidentally, is now one of my own best pain-reducing strategies. The gratitude I feel when I see former pain sufferers actively engaged in managing their chronic pain and moving forward towards achieving their goals fills me with hope and joy–two key components of self-healing!
In conjunction with your doctors, I work with you to give you something they just do not have the time to do during your appointments. I provide the ongoing support and motivation you need to make the changes that will reduce pain and improve your emotional well-being.
You do not have to give up and give in to a life filled with pain, low productivity, and isolation! Through the use of proven science-based mind-body practices, including positive psychology, cognitive behavioral therapy, and neurolinguistic programming, you will learn how to manage what you can control, eliminate negative patterns of thinking that increase the pain and add positive lifestyle habits that reduce the pain.
The tools, support and accountability you get via pain management coaching turns you from a victim who is merely surviving a mediocre existence into a warrior who is conquering pain, thriving and living a joy-filled life!
I was personally trained and mentored by the creator of RTT (Marisa Peer). RTT helps someone change the story they've attached to an event that creates a physical or emotional response within them. RTT enables your subconscious mind to get to the root event that is causing challenges. It works quickly and effectively and my clients wish they had done RTT work years ago.
