"My approach focuses on strengths and what's working in one's life, while also assisting in practical problem solving. Those who want to establish a mind/body/spirit connection and have more joy in their lives will benefit the most by working with me. My excitement for counseling and coaching comes from helping people create wellness and balance, while going through life's transitions: adolescence, college, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging, adjusting to losses and dealing with health issues. I'm also a cancer survivor interested in helping others on their healing journey by phone or in person."

"I find that in today's world things are so fast paced that we rarely have a moment to actually stop, breathe, and just exist. There is no time to process anything because we are on to the next thing. Yet most of us are carrying some burden that weighs on us. That is where I come in! My goal is to provide a safe and non-judgmental space for healing to begin. We think we can just bury our emotions/convince ourselves to just "move on" because "we're fine." The tricky thing with emotions are that they don't work like that. Yes, our world is fast paced, but there has to be room to feel as well. Let's explore those emotions together!"
