Cancer and Trauma Recovery Coaching

Why I Do What I Do

Growing up in a war-torn part of the world where loss and trauma are rampant, I remember a seminal moment at the age of six, witnessing a woman I looked up to breaking down after learning her husband had not returned from the war.

The look of fear and loss in her eyes burned intensely into my brain. I wanted it to go away so badly! But, being so young, there wasn’t much I could do. At that moment, I felt powerless and helpless.
Many years later, I saw the very same look in someone else’s eyes. That person was a cancer patient who came to me for a consultation seeking relief. At that moment, I was no longer that helpless child. Now I had the tools and the knowledge and could finally help.
That patient changed the direction of my practice. He gave it a clear and defined focus – to help people facing cancer and trauma break through to recovery.

I am sometimes asked, “How can you do it? How can you stay so present, focused and content in the face of other’s fears, trauma and grief?” My answer is simple. It’s what I’m here for. The ability to support people this way is innate.

As an army veteran, I know the value of discipline and pushing through. Cancer is a battlefield of sorts. It’s why my cancer recovery programs are goal-oriented and results-driven. And yet, as a parent of two daughters, I’ve learned to be nurturing and grounded, too. That’s what I offer those I work with—a safe and structured sanctuary for healing both mind and body.

Professional Training

I earned my degree as a Holistic Therapist from the Reidman International College for Complementary and Integrative Medicine in Israel in 2000. Further education awarded me certification as a Clinical Hypnotherapist by the National Guild of Hypnotists (NGH) and the National Federation of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NFNLP) in the USA.

Cancer and Trauma Recovery Coaching

My innovative approach to recovery highlights the multidimensional nature of trauma and illness. For people seeking to play a more active role in their recovery, I offer a safe, practical and effective path. This path can help enlist the restorative power of the mind. It can help to become more resilient, confident and experience a better quality of life.

Body and Mind Connection

Research shows that emotional problems can become physical ones. In other words, the notion that people can be scarred by their past should not be taken lightly. that is why my approach is goal-oriented and focused on the root cause of the suffering.

The New Cancer Paradigm TEDx Talk

In this talk, I explore the connection between the subconscious mind and the body’s immune system. I outline my method of helping cancer patients mobilize their inner resources for recovery and healing. The ultimate goal of this method is to improve medical outcomes.
