Meet Paula

As a result of the work they are doing with me, clients are, improving their mental and emotional health and moving on with their lives. We get to the root of the emotional blocks, limiting beliefs and problematic behaviors that are the underlying causes of their mental and physical problems. But it doesn’t stop there. Insight and awareness, by themselves, aren’t enough to create change. You must have the movement piece. That’s where the Energy Psychology and other Mind/Body approaches are invaluable. They neutralize these underlying triggers so change can occur rapidly.

I have always believed that Your issues show up in your tissues…and I’m not just talking about the ones in your Kleenex box. Seriously, I’m talking about the ones in your body. I believe that all mental and physical illness has its origin in unresolved emotional issuesusually grief, from some form of loss.


I help people regain successful lives by quickly identifying and eliminating self-sabotaging behavior and limiting beliefs. I use a variety of breakthrough, Mind/Body techniques to identify your core issues. Then, if you are open to trying something new and innovative, I facilitate neutralizing and eliminating those problematic thoughts and beliefs through intervention on the energy system. This bypasses the conscious mind which is not nearly as powerful as the subconscious.

Measurable change quickly occurs and concrete results manifest in far less time than with traditional therapies which only focus on the conscious mind. Working with a wide variety of healing modalities, I provide my clients with the most effective processes for their specific needs. Because every person has unique challenges, this customized approach is critical to their success.


Although traditionally trained at Long Beach State University with post graduate work at Loyola Marymount University, I quickly fell in love with the effectiveness and rapid results created by Mind/Body approaches. In 1999 I became a founding member of the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology and now sit on its Board.


My first book Chakras, The Magnificent Seven is a primer to the Chakra System and how to use it for greater health and healing.

My latest book Grief…When Will This Pain Ever End?  looks at loss and grief and provides practical, simple articles, processes and exercises to help a grieving person move through their pain and back into joyful living.

I love teaching and speaking and do a variety of Keynotes and workshops throughout the year.


My upcoming book, to be released this fall is called Saying the Right Thing When You Don’t Know What To Say. It is a guide to navigating difficult conversations and will give you the Five Steps to creating helpful, healing conversations.
