What Issues Can I Help You With?

The intention of 1-on-1 sessions is to help you to feel freer and happier in your life by helping you to lose a specific painful emotion, thought, belief, trigger, pattern, or action. The following issues that I mention are all issues I feel really confident that I can help you with because I have been through each of them in my own life. Since I had to work on these issues myself, I developed a really deep sensitivity and understanding of what's causing these painful experiences and how to break free of them.

Self-Worth Issues

I want to help you feel worthy, enough, complete, lovable, relaxed, authentic, and confident. I do this by supporting you to let go of specific beliefs and feelings of being not good enough, inadequate, insecure, unworthy, insufficient, unlovable, ashamed, broken, a terrible person, defective, weak, or a failure.


Not only are these feelings painful to experience, they also impact our life in many unwanted ways. Here are a few of the impacts of low self-worth that I help people to lose: 


  • Our unworthiness can cause us to search for self-worth through love and approval from others, which can incentivize us to become inauthentic and adapt to how others want us to be. 
  • Our low self-worth can cause a fear of rejection that manifests as social anxiety.
  • Our inadequacy can block us from pursuing our goals because we believe we will fail or don’t deserve success. 
  • Our self-worth issues can cause us to avoid any activity that triggers our unworthiness, such as work and school assignments (procrastination) or even hobbies and social interactions. 
  • Our insecurity can cause us to pursue self-worth through success or wealth, which can create a fear of failure that manifests as performance anxiety (work, school, romance).
  • Our inadequacy can cause us to feel endless pressure to prove ourselves, be productive, or be perfect no matter how much success we've already had. 
  • Our unworthiness can cause us to form a belief that we are superior, which can cause us to judge others as inferior or distance ourselves from others.
  • Our unworthiness can cause us to close our heart to people or block us from receiving love because we believe we don’t deserve love. 
  • Our low self-worth can cause us treat ourselves harshly or unkindly.
  • Our shame can fuel us to try to escape our pain through unhealthy relationships to food, internet, social media, sex, people, healing, work, school, working out, or anything else.
  • Our insecurity can cause us to respond to people with defensiveness or anger when our insecurity gets triggered. 
  • Our unworthiness can prevent us from enjoying our life because we consciously or unconsciously believe we don’t deserve joy and happiness. 

Relationship Issues

I offer individual counseling and couples counseling for people in relationships.  I want to help you to feel more free, light, joyous, calm, playful, safe, intimate, open-hearted, and connected with your romantic partner. I do this by helping you to lose the following types of issues:


  • Codependency – You are looking for your partner to make you feel happy, complete, or safe. 
  • Fear – You feel anxiety about losing your partner or their love.
  • Jealousy – It triggers you a lot when your partner is with other men/women in a particular way.
  • Drama – There are too many arguments or hostile interactions in your relationship.
  • Anger – Your anger or defensiveness gets triggered too easily and you don’t want to treat your partner like that. 
  • Blame – You blame yourself for your partner’s suffering (or they blame you), which causes you to feel mad at yourself or like everything you do is wrong.
  • Caretaker – You view your partner as a victim that needs you for money, advice, wisdom, sanity, or safety.
  • Inadequacy – You believe it’s your job to make your partner happy, but it seems like nothing you do is ever enough. 
  • Controlling – You keep trying to control your partner or you feel like they keep trying to control you. This can be direct controlling or through sneaky manipulation. 
  • Unworthiness – You feel unworthy of your partners’ love, can’t believe they love you, or keep trying to get your partner to prove that they love you. 
  • Inauthentic – You feel like you are always trying to be who your partner wants you to be instead of really being yourself.
  • Hurt – You feel deeply hurt by something your partner did and you don’t know how to get over it.
  • Confusion – You don’t know how to deal with your partner’s emotions or behavior.
  • Closed Heart – You can’t feel the love towards your partner or it seems like you don’t even like your partner anymore.
  • Feeling Trapped – You feel like you have to do what your partner wants, spend too much time with them, or can’t do what you want to do. 
  • Triggers – You have some painful trigger that keeps arising and you don’t know what to about it. 

What happens in a session?

In each 1-on-1 session, my intention is to help identify and address the root of your unwanted experience so that there is none of it left inside you. I want to help heal your painful experience so fully that it simply never arises again in your life. No practice or maintenance required. There are many different techniques I use to do this, but it would take a long time to describe as it is hard to understand when it hasn't been directly experienced. However, what I can tell you is that around 75% of each session is spent guiding the client through various exercises to bring up, feel, release, let go of, undo, disbelieve, heal, love, or unhook unwanted beliefs and emotions. This is always meant to have an immediate experiential impact. Put differently, you will experience the painful belief or emotion leaving or lightening during our session.

How am I able to help you?

I want to live with joy, love, kindness, enthusiasm, power, calmness, connection, and authenticity. This simple desire has taken me on a journey to discover and heal an incredible variety of painful emotions and beliefs. Whenever my experience feels contracted, dense, heavy, or painful, I explore and heal whatever is going on in my mind or body in order to come back to peace and freedom. Every time I was able to let go of a painful belief or emotion, I naturally became happier. But, on top of this, I would develop more wisdom and clarity to help others to let go of their painful beliefs and emotions. 


I have been doing this since 2010 and have helped well over 1,000 individual clients. I am not a doctor or therapist of any kind. My wisdom comes from my own path.

I will then get back to you about whether I believe I can help you, or if I know someone/something else that may be better suited for your needs. If you can't afford my rates for sessions, you're welcome to ask for a discount.
