I won’t stop recommending Rafeal for his great work. I noticed and suspected my husband is getting too much closer with my best friend Caroline, my husband chats now in private, her calls also are in secret and she changed her phone password as well, I was wondering what’s going on until in took it up to and make some research in other to be sure, I came across a recommendation about PremiumSpy Global who helped a man hack into his wife phone remotely to access everything. .. Say I was skeptical at first but I gave it a try, so I decided to contact him and to my surprise I was never disappointed, he helped me hack into my husband’s phone, I didn’t need to touch his phone and in less than 4hours after his phone was finally hacked, his messages were coming into my phone instantly, I felt very disappointed at my best friend that I confronted her and heart broken by what I saw on my husband’s phone. I had all the access to monitor his phone remotely to accessing his Facebook, WhatsApp, Text messages (both deleted and hidden), Call Logs, Emails, GPS Location and monitor his activities.

You can contact Rafael on his email if you are interested in any hacking related issues.. Contact Premiumspyglobal @ gmail com

Aline is an exceptional therapist! I went to her for close to 2 years. I saw her 1-1 and in a group. Both scenarios proved beneficial. She is kind, compassionate and knowledgeable. She works with children and families. More...

Aline brings a rare combination of warmth and professionalism to her consulting endeavors. I have repeatedly witnessed facilitation environments wherein she’s disarmed potentially conflicting personalities and brought all parties concerned to mutually beneficial, win-win, previously unseen possibilities. Aline is a cross-cultural solutions-creator par excellence; highly recommended. More...

Aline is an exceptional therapist and healer. I used her services for 2 years. We started out in a 1-1 setting and branched out to a group setting. Both proved helpful and healing. I just finished my last session with her. I know that what she taught me is something I will use in the future. She is compassionate and kind. Her therapy style WILL heal you emotionally, psychologically and spiritually! I feel proud to have been taught by her! More...

Q&As

The work I do is both a calling and a passion. When I work with clients, I bring everything I have to the table (mind, heart, and spirit) and I love the challenge of customizing the work to each person. I believe in the power of an integrated and holistic approach to health and it is an honor to journey with my clients and see them regain their sense of confidence, connection, and peace.

Do you find yourself wondering... What does it mean to be a whole and balanced human being in today’s modern world? How do I create the life I feel called to live instead of the life I am told I should live? How do I walk in peace and joy no matter what comes my way?
These are some of the questions that are important to me and owning my own business gives me the opportunity and freedom to not only explore these questions for myself, but journey with others as they work towards a life of thriving instead of just surviving.

Working with a professional isn't just for athletes, musicians, corporate executives, or "dysfunctional" people - it's for anybody sensible enough to realize that we all have our own blind spots and can benefit from an experienced set of impartial eyes. I use a unique blend of coaching and psychotherapeutic techniques, tailored to your specific situation and goals. As a licensed mental health practitioner, a portion of my fees might be reimbursable through your insurance company. Utilizing a diverse variety of specialized clinical techniques, including hypnotherapy, EFT, and biofeedback, as well as working with addictions and trauma, I have you covered. I help individuals, families, and teams transform from the inside out.

Services

Biofeedback is a mind–body technique in which individuals learn how to modify their physiology for the purpose of improving physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. Much like physical therapy, biofeedback training requires active participation on the part of clients and often regular practice between training sessions. HeartMath is a unique system of rigorous scientific research, validated techniques, leading-edge products and programs and advanced technologies that use cardiovascular reactivity to measure Heart Rate Variability (HRV) or heart rate over time. Using a pulse sensor plugged into a USB port, emWavePro (a HeartMath technology) collects pulse data and translates physiological information into user–friendly graphics displayed on the computer screen. Clients are taught to create a coherent state through coherence techniques and interactive exercises and games. Personal coherence, also known as psychophysiological coherence, refers to the synchronization of our physical, mental and emotional systems. It can be measured by our heart-rhythm patterns: The more balanced and smooth they are, the more in sync, or coherent we are. Stress levels recede, energy levels increase and our brain and what HeartMath calls the “heart brain” work together. It is a state of optimal clarity, perception and performance. HeartMath tools and technology have been scientifically proven to help clients achieve personal coherence. This model is grounded in and consistent with research in the fields of neurocardiology, psychophysiology, and neuroscience.

EFT is a powerful self-help method based on research showing that emotional trauma contributes greatly to disease. Clinical trials have shown that EFT tapping is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress. Once the distress is reduced or removed, the body can often rebalance itself, and accelerate healing. EFT can be used as an immediate self-calming tool for distress, as a wellness routine, and also as a component of treatment for medical or mental health issues. EFT uses elements of Cognitive Therapy and Exposure Therapy, and combines them with Acupressure, in the form of fingertip tapping on 8-12 acupuncture points.

Hypnotherapy is the practice of psychotherapy with a client who is in the hypnotic altered state of consciousness. Hypnotherapy is a powerful way to access the source of distress, like depression and anxiety, and for people to reconnect with dissociated emotions and disowned parts of themselves. Hypnotherapy helps therapists and client get closer to the source of a client’s issues by opening the doorway to their subconscious mind.

Coaching helps you focus on getting out of life what is most important to you (even when you don’t know what that is yet!) and gives you the tools to keep doing this long after your final session. People typically hire a coach when they are reevaluating life choices, making a career transition, or simply feeling ready for a personal or professional breakthrough.

It's normal to have emotional ups and downs but when persistent symptoms start to negatively impact your health and relationships, then psychotherapy can help you understand your symptoms, get relief, and provide an opportunity for personal growth. I work best with individuals who are committed and sincere in their intention to grow; those who are on a path toward honesty and authenticity in their lives. Growth is work- it means you have to get out of your comfort zone and try new ways of showing up in the world. I will teach you how your brain forms habits and patterns of behavior, how you can use this to your advantage AND improve your quality of life. The work is done both in and out of sessions, as you put into practice the intentions set during our time together.

The following is an excerpt from an interview of Gary Greenberg, practicing psychotherapist and mental health reporter. I include it here as an example of my approach to psychotherapy.

“People come to therapy because their life circumstances have somehow disrupted the the story they tell themselves about who they are. But even then the healing isn’t only about the new story we fashion. It’s about the intimacy…Freud said that psychoanalysis is a ‘cure through love’, and I think that is essentially correct. The love is conveyed not so much in the content as in the form: the rapt attention of someone who cares enough to interrogate you. The love stows away in the conversation.”
