I started AffintyWorks in 2002, first practicing as a transpersonal hypnotherapist with a focus on Ericksonian techniques. Since then, I’ve participated in a number of educational workshops and teaching certification programs, and have expanded my work to include meditation and expressive arts.

Much of my current practice has involved working with clients who struggle with PTSD or chronic illness, as well as acting as a creative mentor to other writers and artists who are at an impasse with their craft. My personal experiences have given me a deeper understanding of my clients’ struggles, and also strengthened my interest in the mind-body connection, the healing power of creativity, and the importance of patient advocacy.

I’m a graduate of Southern Connecticut State University with both an MS in English and an MFA in Creative Writing. I completed graduate study in counseling and developmental psychology at Central Connecticut State University, and I’m a licensed hypnotist in the state of Connecticut.

My office is located in central Connecticut, and inquiries may be sent to affinityworks (at) att (dot) net. All correspondence comes directly to me and is completely confidential. **April 2017 update: Although I’m not able to accept new clients at this time, please feel free to contact me with questions or if you need a referral.**

Alternative therapies are meant to complement the care given by your physician or mental health professional, and I always encourage an integrative approach. If you’d like more information on the benefits of complementary therapies, you can find additional resources here.
