I created the Inner Eater System in 2007, a psycho-spiritual weight maintainance approach utilizing the Theory of the Psychology of Selves and the Voice Dialogue method.

Additional services include, retreats at the Quietude Retreat Center, face-to-face and virtual psychotherapy for individuals and couples.

Through my extensive experience interweaving traditional approaches with psycho-spiritual disciplines, the following theories and modalities serve as the foundation of my work: the theory of the Psychology of Selves and the Voice Dialogue Method, the teachings of Meher Baba, the Quantum Physics theory and the use of hypnotherapy, art, movement, dream work and energetics.
