About this pro

I help individuals, couples & families find out how to get “un-stuck” by targeting & removing the barriers to the minds own ability to self-heal.  The primary goal for treatment is about helping secure that authentic-self connection, and discover what life will be when when it’s no longer about living just simply “in reaction to” something or someone else or a past situation.   Once the baggage is removed, tools that have been developed as a conditioning of its trauma can now serve as a sort of unique super power that guide a truly enriching life experience.

.

I specialize in treating trauma (all forms) such as: unresolved grief, self identity, PTSD, phobia(s), bad habits, anger, anxiety, family/ relationship reconnection,  intimacy issues, childhood trauma, Borderline Personality Disorder, codependency, perfectionism (imposter syndrome), OCD, Narcissism abuse, self-forgiveness, trust repair, self-sabotage, infidelity and depression.

I have a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and studied at Arizona State University; Doctorate of Behavioral Health program; targeting somatic disturbance in the body byway of treating mental health as primary for recovery. Career history: 9.5yrs; 8,600+clients; focus areas: addiction recovery, trauma, codependency, perfectionism, procrastination, Narcissistic abuse.

** RELATIONSHIP HEALTH PLAN ASSESSMENT (110 min). A great place for couples to start. Also, includes a 2 page couples-dynamic analysis report (sent via email w/i 48 hours of appointment), includes treatment plan outline for the soonest goal and repair duration; couples critical growth areas, long-term prognosis, and recommendations for either to address individual hurts from the past that may be threatening to, or directly impacting your relationship as a couple.

.

Also, Keep in mind, that if your relationship is in distress due to EMOTIONS or BEHAVIORS, a Trauma/Behavior Therapist is the way you want to go. I mention this because for some reason I got the vibe that you want to "strike while the iron is hot" when it comes to hubby (I could be off base but just the sense I got) so likely if he doesn't feel progress quickly, he may lose motivation for treatment. Most therapists in practice do CBT, which is great for present day situations, but will only target reframing THOUGHTS.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

I have been developing the primary methods used (to be more thoroughly described later), for over 19 years & for the past 10 years have been utilizing these interventions in case conceptualizations of over 9600 patients. Results reveal remarkable findings: relief of somatic & emotional distress instantaneously (avg. 50% disturbance reduction in one session).

It was vital to me that the McGinnis Theory on Subconscious Reformation (SR) be scrutinized to the strongest degree possible as to maximize its healing impact. I don't know about you, but for me, when I am feeling crummy, I want to get out of that feeling as quickly as possible. And not just a temporary fix, I want it to be gone for good! With SR, once a root is pulled it cannot return. Which means, that initial disturbance will not hinder you ever again!

The other half of the scrutinization process was ensuring resolution would occur quickly. Talk therapy can take months or sometimes years before true relief is gained ~ who wants to sit in "it" that long? Therefore, this approach has been evaluated by numerous mental health professionals, undergone several years' worth of evidence-based studies & research; & endured lengthy analysis by EMDR, trauma, & Somatic relief doctors to all collaborate on its development. I sincerely hope you enjoy this experience & honor yourself for the gift of putting YOU first!

WHAT TO EXPECT

The first session is typically focused on the clinical assessment process & emotional outlining. Together, we will develop your personal treatment plan in order for us to delineate our initiating focus. At times therapeutic "homework" will be given, if you decide to complete it, great! If not, we can still learn from the barriers as well so please do not get caught up thinking negatively about yourself or the process. Often when interpreting the subconscious, it's in what is not said or done where we learn what that part of the mind is trying to tell us.

Targeting relief is always the goal of each session. On occasion, methods for SR will be utilized during the first or second appointment. However, often that is not the case, as most of us need some extra emotional strengthening beforehand. Assessing the appropriate methods to utilize during each meeting is my upmost dedication to your treatment and healing. This theory is vast and complex. Though at times, other forms of subconscious- mind healing will be used. A wide variety of tools & interventions are necessary for the (sometimes) unpredictable nature of the subconscious. This is particularly why I am consistently assessing what to use and when.

Studying & interpreting body language, handwriting analysis, emotional awareness, energy transmission, & other non-verbal cues make direct connection to - & examination of - the subconscious. It is quite safe to say that the subconscious rules the session & whenever the conscious-mind attempts to interrupt, it is swiftly (& gently) reminded that this time is for its counterpart.

SUBCONSCIOUS REFORMATION (SR)
I like to call this "rapid therapy" because the point of catharsis (relief) generally comes within a 30-min timeframe. I've found this to be so effective that it has become my primary choice of intervention. It is quite effective for

somatic relief (aches/pains or illness caused by molecules of emotion), PTSD symptoms (nightmares, flashbacks, hypervigilance, anxiety, avoidance, etc.), social anxiety, &, general disturbance (bad habits, toxic relationships, overall attraction to drama, etc.).

The subconscious controls 80-90% of our behavior, never ages, remembers all (since birth), & is essentially the magical healer - so why do we waste so much time trying to heal our conscious mind, when really, that's just a compilation of "recorded" information from other people? Many have said that through our subconscious, we experience our direct spiritual connection - I have to say, that whatever your Higher Power may be, I do agree that the connection is found within the subconscious.

Want more? Think about it. Every, single, event (NEGATIVE or positive) No. Longer. Exists. - except for in our imagination. Through SR, I am able to assist in transforming how the imagination remembers a negative experience AND we create a more positive imprint in its place. This then reduces the results that any one negative event birthed (ex. Backaches, nightmares, sudden anxiety or avoidance, negative thoughts, etc.) Ever wish you could no longer be majorly affected by your past or wish you could rapidly heal from the pain? Yep, me too! I think that's why I love this approach so much. I feel so blessed & am continually grateful to have the honor of witnessing amazing healing through my work.

EMOTIONAL "ROOTS" (Removing the Barriers)
When a distressing feeling lasts longer than 3-minutes, that is your indication that you are experiencing a childhood trigger - not an adult reaction. Since personality is developed between the ages of 1-6 yrs. old, this is when what I call, "roots" are developed. Then, as we grow older, those roots grow trees, with branches, then leaves, etc.

For example, consider being 45 yrs. Old & someone says something that triggers the leaf connected to a "shame" root created when you were 5 yrs. Likely, the emotional reaction to that comment would feel as overwhelming as if you were a young child again, & less like how a grown adult would be impacted. Perhaps even emotionally paralyzing.

IMPRINT REPLACEMENT
Often, we hear messages to "just think positive" or "stop stressing out." However, with many things, shifting our mindset is not necessarily that easy, nor simple.

Since the subconscious learns by repetition, then hearing oneself
repeat traumatic events could, in effect, more deeply groove the disturbance into the mind, reinforcing any resulting consequences (ailments, bad habits, negative behaviors, etc.). Additionally, the conscious mind frequently has a significant learning curve, meaning one could spend lengthy periods of time involved in talk- therapy "learning" (or rather, "re-learning") how to heal.

Whereas, with the subconscious - the only hindrance to healing is the barrier standing in the way (traumatic occurrence, negative thought, etc.). Once the barrier is removed, so then are the disturbances it created. Think of a splinter in your hand. Attempting to cure the damage the splinter is causing will be nearly impossible while the splinter remains. However, once the particle is removed, the body is free to do what it was designed to do - the process that had been interrupted - and that is to self-heal.

Therefore, when being treated for responses resulting from a triggering event, with SR, the "processing" of the actual event does not happen. Meaning, a series of directive techniques will aid in imprint replacement & barrier removal without having to actually discuss or speak of the occurrence. Since the subconscious works on an entirely different plain than how we typically think - this treatment may be difficult to describe &/or understand completely. The subconscious is non-verbal & experiential, & fittingly, so is its treatment.

"We don't hold on to negative thoughts because we want them,

we do so because we believe them."

CATHARSIS

Essentially this is the point of relief. Typically, this takes the form of either a big epiphany or healing of some sort. Usually results in a lot of tears. The goal of each session is to find most (if not all) healing from the presenting issue at hand.

It is at this point when a typical client remark is, "Oh my! All of a sudden all of these childhood memories are flooding in..." I always reassure that our subconscious is designed to keep us safe so rest easy because the memories that come back will be positive & uplifting. Typically, clients will feel physically spent, as if just having completed an intense cardio workout. One could deduce this to be the energetic release of no longer having to having the "pause" button on subconscious & now can resume the "play" mode. Imagine now, all of this newfound energy that can finally be put to better use! Oh, I must mention the yawning. This often occurs during Catharsis as well. There is no scientific evidence as to why this occurs, however, from my observations; this appears to be an energetic release of sorts as well.
