If you’re looking to start therapy, there are lots of options. How do you know you’ve found the right therapist for you? In this blog series I’ll tell you a little about my background, how I found energy therapy and why I think its the best thing you’ve never heard of.
People often ask me how I got interested in energy psychology. It’s been a long winding path. I was a depressed kid who was in therapy by the time I was ten. I turned my lived experience into a career that helps other people find their way out of the darkness toward a whole new life.
I got my start in the mental health field when I was 19. I got a job working the weekend shift at an 8 bed halfway house for the chronically mentally ill in Newburgh NY. Looking back, it’s hard to imagine someone thought I was responsible enough for such a serious job. But they did. I worked there on the weekends and took clients to run their errands or mine in the eight passenger van I […]
Achieving good mental health is a process. Mental health hygiene consists of daily self-care, meditation, healthy diet and exercise, and some type of self-improvement routine. Personal evolution is an important aspect of mental health. You want to feel better, be happy, get rid of your anxiety and depression. I get it.
When it comes to personal evolution, I find “Ask and receive” to be the simplest most effective path toward personal growth. It is a simple yet elegant method that seeks to establish an agreement between your higher self and other parts of you that may have conflicting thoughts or limiting beliefs.
Have you ever felt ready to make a change in your life but kept falling back into old destructive behavior patterns? This is common and can sabotage you on goals ranging from weight loss to relationships, to money or insomnia. You want to adopt a new behavior but you find yourself falling into old patterns and sabotaging your new goals. This is caused by internal conflict.
Let’s assume that all your behaviors and belief originally developed to […]
Are you a perfectionist who gets worried when you’re not in the zone? The paradox of perfection is that the harder you try, the more elusive it feels. Be kind to yourself. Give your self permission to relax and take a break. Take a look at what you are giving your focus to and stop pushing against what is unwanted. Meditation allows you to reconnect with your highest self which has all the answers you are searching for. If you are looking for extra guidance, energy psychology offers a path to reconnection and healing. Enjoy the journey and learn the lessons imperfection teaches.
Mindfulness is the practice of conscious awareness of the present moment. You can be mindful of your environment, your emotional state, or a felt sense in the body. The practice of mindfulness can ease depression and anxiety and other mental health concerns.
Heal depression and anxiety
The opposite of mindfulness is autopilot. You are probably very familiar with this concept. Imagine you are driving down the road and realize you haven’t paid attention to the last few exits. Your body is on autopilot. Your brain is extremely good at doing things it has practiced. It can get you to your destination while your conscious mind drifts and daydreams. The unconscious mind can process more than 40,000,000 bits of data every second. Your conscious mind is much slower. It can only process about 40 bits per second. Since the unconscious is so much more efficient, we tend to rely on it between 80 and 90% of the time. Being mindful allows you to be more aware of the mundane aspects of life.
The unconscious mind is programmed mostly by repetition and your perception of the […]
Post-traumatic stress disorder or “PTSD” is a complex mental health issue. It is caused by experiencing or witnessing a traumatic or violent event. Events ranging from natural disasters, car accidents, assaults, and combat can cause PTSD. Veterans and first responders are at risk because of the number and severity of traumatic exposures they face. It is even possible to develop symptoms from hearing about the violent experience suffered by a loved one. People fail to realize that secondary exposure to trauma is often just as disturbing to the mind and body as first-hand experience. Not everyone who experiences trauma develops PTSD. It is mitigated by a number of variables including social support, healthy attachment, coping skills, and more.
PTSD can cause intense disturbing thoughts and feelings long after the traumatic event has ended. The trauma may be relieved through nightmares, flashbacks, and persistent ruminating thoughts. Trauma is difficult to recover from without help because each time it is recalled, the body experiences a stress response. This means that physical sensations in the body such as sweating, racing heart rate, changes in visual or auditory perceptions, are triggered each time the person is reminded of the […]
If you are struggling with depression, you are probably aware you lack compassion toward yourself. Lack of self-love is one of the worst contributors to mental health problems. Many people come in with depression, anxiety, relationship problems, and eating disorders and discover that they have overwhelming compassion for everyone but themselves. This is especially true for people who identify as themselves as an empath or very empathic.
Nearly 100% of the time, we uncover a total lack of self-love or self-compassion. If all of your compassion is directed outward, you will be left feeling drained, overwhelmed, depressed, depleted, and lethargic.
Energy therapy can help you correct the imbalances and go on to recover from depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and other mental health problems. You don’t need to struggle. I can help.
Yo-yo dieting is a part of many eating disorders. It is particularly painful and damaging to self-esteem because, like gambling, with each win, you feel a chemical rush of happiness, satisfaction, and elation, and with each loss, your self-esteem crumbles under the weight of critical internal voices that say it’s your fault. The allure of dieting is a seductive one. Relinquish control to these rules, and victory will be yours. People who have been caught in the dieting net often feel relief to give up food in favor of shakes, prepackaged meals, personal trainers, and even body-altering surgery.
Being overweight is a societal stigma that can’t be hidden. It’s on display for all to see. The emotional pressure to be thin is enormous. It far outreaches the pressure to be healthy. The physical aspects take their toll in the form of diabetes, high blood pressure, heart and kidney problems, sleep disturbances, joint and muscle pain, loss of mobility, and on and on.
It’s easy to fall prey to the food and diet industry. The availability of cheap, densely caloric, low […]
HBLU allows you to find the reactions you may not be aware of and correct them in a matter of minutes. This allows a deep level of understanding and shifts the way you feel about your experience. Healing occurs on the conscious, unconscious, body and soul level of your being and symptoms disappear. Symptoms are your body’s alarm system telling you that one thing is wrong. Many therapies simply teach you to cope with symptoms, or use medication to mask symptoms. HBLU interviews the symptom, uses muscle testing to find the root cause of it and heals it with a corrective, energetic intervention. You know an issue is clear when your subjective experience of distress is a zero and your body muscle tests clear. No traditional therapy can promise that.
What is the purpose of life? Are we spiritual beings having a human existence or human beings waiting to become spirits? What are we doing here? Should we allow our fear of the unknown to govern our behavior or is there a greater message, and if there is, what is the best way to search? Can you trust your senses or must you learn to trust in your inner guidance system? Is it possible to separate darkness from light or do each rely on the other for existence? What is the function of society? Bird Box features Sandra Bullock, John Malkovich, Sarah Paulson, B.D. Wang, Trevante Rhodes, Danielle Macdonald, Machine Gun Kelly, Tom Hollander, and a slew of other recognizable actors. Caution. This article contains spoilers and opinions that you may not agree with.

The film has been panned by critics for leaving pressing questions unanswered, failing to tie up loose ends, and a less than satisfying ending. I thought the apocalyptic drama was rich in biblical symbolism, personal and social psychology, social commentary about the media, and child-rearing. […]
‘Tis the season… To be stressed out! The sights and sounds of the holidays are everywhere. Christmas music fills your ears in every store, office and radio station. Holiday treats abound, and there are festive parties and gatherings on everyone’s calendar. All this merriment can give a person some serious stress.
There are lots of stressors this time of year. The late nights parties, less sleep, rich food, alcohol and sweets push your immune system into overdrive. Environmental stresses like traffic, crowded malls, finding the perfect gifts, overspending, and family push your body to its limit. It seems like everyone is in a rush. There’s barely enough time to get it all done. The festivities demand more of you and trigger a stress reaction in your body even if you’re enjoying the season. After all, you still have to tend to all the normal day to day tasks and obligations.
Not everyone is happy around the holidays.
The holidays can be hard for people who are already feeling lonely or missing meaningful connections. You know, if you’ve recently lost a loved one, that this time […]
HBLU is a revolutionary mind-body healing method that leads you to greater insight into your behavior, a deeper understanding of your prevailing worldview and ultimately profound acceptance of who you are. This is not a healing method that is done to you. It is one that you do for yourself with the help of your inner wisdom and guidance from a lovingly collected list of the most common interference patterns.
Experience change in a single session.
Because you will be self muscle-testing, you will be able to access wisdom from your body and unconscious mind and your intuition. I do not touch you so you will feel answers switch from “no” to “yes”. You will feel the direction of the session and although you may not consciously connect to the content, you will feel the results.
Change you can see.
Over several sessions, you will notice improved ability to do things that were once difficult. Whether your goals are food and body related, relationship-focused, or self-esteem based, you will see changes in your day to day life. I have never personally made it my goal to change my eating habits, yet over time I began to notice a lack […]
The holidays carry expectations of happiness, joy, love, and togetherness, but that’s not the case for everyone. Being alone in a new city, coming out with a long-held secret to family, or a recent breakup or death, can all cause you to be or feel alone. Empty nesters and the elderly are often alone. Loneliness doesn’t have one single cause, nor is it the same for everyone.
Holiday movies and music are a constant reminder of the blissful happiness we are missing. It looks like love is all around us. Holiday parties and family gatherings are on everyone’s calendar, but yours. For many people, it’s a cruel illusion. Social media, with its staged selfies and filters, only add to your envy. Comparing yourself to other people will only increase your unhappiness and isolation. It looks like everyone is happy and celebrating, But the holiday season can be a time of extreme loneliness.
Loneliness can be acute and environmental. It can be linked to old history and pain carried from childhood. Unhealthy family patterns make the wounds feel worse. Loneliness can get the best of you, leading to stress, depression, memory problems, and even heart problems. It may begin as a vague longing […]
