My primary commitment to you is to help you grow in self-awareness and self-empowerment, and to help you take the necessary actions that will actualize your growth and development in the world. If you struggle with feelings of fear, shame, helplessness, worthlessness and anger; traumatic emotional, physical and sexual experience; challenges in relationship; dysfunctional behaviors; unfulfilled aspirations; questions about your life's meaning; and physical illness and aging, I can help you."

"So many of us have been taught to fear our wholeness. We learned that our emotions, our sexuality, our minds or all of the above are too much, or maybe that we are not enough. These messages of fear and shame can make for a long journey back to embodying and loving our dynamic, unique selves. I am here to accompany you on that journey toward self-acceptance and wholeness. If you have experienced social marginalization, or felt like an outsider I can help you heal the neurological trauma caused just by being different. "

Life transitions have a common thread - loss and grief. Even joyful experiences can be difficult. You may feel stuck, out-of-control or have worrisome regrets and anxiety.

Self-esteem begins in childhood and may fluctuate depending on your life experiences. There may be a point in time that you no longer recognize who you are. You start to please everyone, and lose focus on your wants and needs. You begin to doubt yourself and your abilities, stay in unhealthy relationships, make self-destructive decisions (alcohol, promiscuity). You become stuck and cannot move forward.
