For thirty years, I have been honored to facilitate transformative changes for a culturally diverse clientele dealing with the trauma of sexual assault, grief and loss, substance abuse, anxiety, and inappropriate expressions of anger. I work with children and teens individually and in the context of their families. Parents who want help for their children may be called on to examine their own childhood and how it can affect current relationships with family members. I teach couples to make positive requests for change and provide insight into the cause of unwanted behavior while modeling and assisting in more effective communication.

Wellness is having a healthy balance of our mind, body, and spirit. When it’s disconnected, you may feel unmotivated, empty, or dissatisfied with life or relationships. It causes negative thoughts that contribute to feeling depressed or anxious. Exhaustion is another sign of imbalances due to giving too much of your energy to others or feeling like there is not enough time to care for yourself. This results in difficulty in saying “no” to others requests or self-judgement of not being enough. Life may feel or seem to get busier, creating challenges that get in the way of achieving your goals.
