Can you tell us about your journey to becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and how it has shaped your approach to psychotherapy and hypnotherapy?

My journey to become a licensed clinical social worker began in college when I was a student in a class called introduction to social welfare. This was my first introduction to social work, and I was immediately intrigued and hooked. I decided to do my Graduate School education at New York University because I wanted a school which was going to be more clinically focused. My drive which has shaped my approach to psychotherapy and hypnotherapy is my inherent belief that all of us can heal if we choose to heal. I also believe that each of us has within us all the resources that we need to be successful in healing, we just need the right therapist, guide, or support to be there by our side as we travel the healing journey. I believe healing is a journey from the inside out.


What inspired you to delve into the world of conscious parenting coaching, and how does it intersect with your background in psychotherapy and hypnotherapy?

In 2017 I was introduced to the book, The Awakened Family by Dr. Shefali. At that time my youngest child was 11 years old, and I was really struggling as a mom with parenting. The Awakened Family spoke to me like no other book on parenting ever had and I immediately began to apply the principles and practices of conscious parenting with my 11-year-old and my teenage children. Within two weeks I began to see a shift with my youngest child, and I realized that my controlling way of being a parent was the problem. I learned through conscious parenting that there is nothing to fix, the child is not broken. The work to heal what is happening within the dynamics of the family begins with the parent. Learning this, feeling this, and experiencing this was transformative for me and I realized I would be able to incorporate conscious parenting principles into the work I was already doing with my psychotherapy and hypnotherapy clients. I was easily able to incorporate conscious parenting concepts into my work because conscious parenting is all about helping the parent heal from the inside out. My work, whether I am working with someone for hypnosis, psychotherapy or coaching a client, is all about helping someone heal from the inside out. I support my clients to gain insight about themselves, understand themselves, and heal the wounded parts in order to transform themselves and the relationships in their present life.


Your book, “Show Up For Yourself- A Guide to Inner Awareness and Growth,” sounds enlightening. What motivated you to write it, and what key insights do you hope readers take away from it?

My book, Show Up For Yourself, was motivated by my desire to reach more people and connect with people who have been searching to find a way to emotionally feel better but didn’t know where to begin or what a process of emotional healing includes or looks like. My book takes readers through my journey of healing and through my journey of healing I share the work I do as a psychotherapist and hypnotherapist to help my clients heal. My book is about self-growth. In my book I share the concept I developed called The Spiral of Healing. The Spiral of Healing has four components feel, heal, love, grow. The spiral is a process of going inward to rise up, and as we are on that spiral, we touch these different levels and layers of feel, heal, grow, and love. Each time we touch a level when we look at a same or similar pain again, we can do so more easily and learn even more about ourselves because we’ve already healed a layer of it. My greatest wish is that it opens windows and doors for people to look inside of themselves and explore their pain in a safe way. What I would love readers to take away from the book is that healing is a journey, it is never too late to begin to heal, and all of us can find the healing we seek when we are willing to be brave enough to look at what has caused us pain.

Can you share with us the core concept behind your book, “Show Up for Yourself: A Guide to Inner Awareness and Growth,” and how it relates to healing emotional wounds stemming from the wounded inner child?

The core concept of my book, Show Up for Yourself, is that healing is possible. I fully believe that healing is an inside-out job. Due to this belief, I have developed an inside-out process called The Spiral of Healing to help people understand that healing happens continually and in layers. This understanding will help people who are ready to listen to their pain and give it a voice they can hear outside of their own heads. We do this by listening with our hearts to ourselves with compassion and understanding. This relates to the inner child because the pain we feel on the inside is the pain of our inner child. I call that inner child the wounded inner child. It is our job as adults to rescue the wounded inner child. to hear, see, validate, and love them. It is up to us to understand what they went through as children and come to a place of compassion and forgiveness for them. All of the coping skills you developed at the time of childhood trauma were not developed to hurt your adult self but were your survival skills at the time and have become your coping skills as an adult. Therefore, when you become upset, triggered, and reactive in your adult life, you are not responding with the wisdom and experience of your adult self. You are reacting with the emotionally charged coping skills of the wounded inner child. This phenomenon occurs because the unconscious mind has no sense of time and as a result, the wounded inner child becomes activated, taking over your adult life when feelings similar to those from childhood are evoked in the present moment. When we rescue the wounded inner child and bring them back home to our adult-loving heart, then that inner child no longer must keep the old, maladaptive coping skills and can finally rest. It is then that the adult self can learn new coping skills appropriate for the time in your life that you are in now. This healing has the ability to result in an improved mood, less stress, and improved relationships in all areas of your life.

Do you find yourself yelling at your kids a lot these days? Does it seem like you just can’t get through to them without raising your voice? If you’re wondering how to stop being an angry mom, then I have a few tools to help you. As mothers, we have a lot of responsibilities on our plates daily. Whether you’re a working or stay-at-home mom, you still have to raise your kids and care for the home. It’s no wonder some women find themselves being angry moms due to the daily stress of raising kids and trying to do it all. Before we can talk about how you can stop being an angry mom, we first need to look at why you’re getting angry so easily in the first place.


Why do moms get angry and lose their temper so easily with their kids? 

Mothers get angry and lose their temper with their kids for many reasons. Some of those include frustrations from their kids not listening, being overwhelmed with the demands of motherhood, taking out work stress on their family, or worrying about finances. Let’s look deeper into each of these reasons.
Frustration when kids don’t listen
Sometimes children don’t follow the rules we’ve set for them. It’s their nature to push our boundaries. When this happens, we can get very frustrated or angry with them as mothers. We may even see it as a personal failure on our part, which can make our frustrations worse.
