About

When we feel anxious, depressed, exhausted, isolated, lonely, lost or stuck for too long, we feel like we are caught in a web of pain. In order to self medicate we may be drawn to addictive substances or behaviors to provide temporary relief. This might help in the short term but can have negative consequences if our addictive tendencies become destructive habits. At the root of our psychological pain are traumatic experiences from the past or negative attitudes toward our self. At our core we often have limiting or negative beliefs that keep us caught in a web of destructive habits. To heal, these beliefs need to be transformed.
I help adults who want support in healing and transforming their psychological symptoms. I believe each of us have inner resources that can radically transform our life. Through compassionate presence, facilitation and guidance I help individuals clear barriers to their inner resources and gifts so they can thrive in their health, relationships and work.
For over 25 years I have assisted my clients to heal anxiety, depression, fatigue, grief, loss, trauma, transform addictive tendencies and negative beliefs, heal relationships, uncover inner gifts, change career paths from doing work just to pay the bills to finding a calling that gives them a fulfilling sense of passion, mission, meaning and purpose.
