As a practicing Clinical Psychologist for the last 20 years, I have studied many of the most progressive techniques for body, mind, and emotional wellness. I have worked with adults and children, young and old, singles and couples. I have traveled around the world teaching people how to use Essential Oils and lifestyle strategies to optimize brain function, let go of the past, and enhance happiness and well-being. But the most significant improvements come from a technique I developed as a method that people can use on themselves or others in as little as 20 minutes. The reason people come to see me, in person or in a seminar, is because they feel stuck in some area of their life. Whether it is a career goal, finding or keeping a satisfying relationship, or living a life of passion and purpose, we all need to feel that we are moving in the direction of our dreams. Sometimes we all need an outside perspective, or we need help getting past things that we have struggled with. As much as I enjoy helping people, I enjoy it even more when they learn how to help themselves.


This is why I created The Aroma Freedom Technique. It is a step-by-step process designed to be learned and used by anyone who wants more freedom in their life. It is an entirely new approach to aromatherapy, one that uses the power of pure essential oils to instantly and irresistibly shift a person's mental state, mood, and ability to take positive action. Through this process you will learn how to identify what you really want in life, what is blocking you, and how to release these blocks in a matter of minutes. Then, you utilize daily practice to keep you on track.


Everything you need to know to get started you will find in my book, The Aroma Freedom Technique. This book is a distillation of the methods that I use in my practice and in my personal life. You will find it helpful for personal use and, if you are a therapist or healer, it can easily be integrated into your existing style for your clients. 


Aroma Freedom is an entirely new way of using pure Essential Oils, combined with proven psychological principles, to quickly and gently dissolve the negative thoughts, feelings and memories that hold us back from reaching our dreams. It uses the principle of Memory Reconsolidation, which has been studied by modern Neuroscience as the natural way that the brain updates learning and prediction.


I discovered that holding the four primary aspects of consciousness together at the same time (feeling, thought, sensation, and imagination) while smelling specific essential oils had the effect of "dissolving" the memory/emotion complex, and allowed the person to become free from the effects of negative experiences from the past.


I further discovered that the same process can be used when considering current experiences and future imaginings.  We now have techniques that are wonderful for goal setting, stress reduction, relief from painful memories, and overall mental and emotional balance.
