Are you HAPPY? In my 35 years in private practice I have found that what most people are looking for is HAPPINESS. Through my personal work in my own therapy and studying with Tibetan Masters and Native Elders I have been blessed with the secret of finding happiness. It is my life's work to share how to achieve happiness with individuals,couples and families. I have also come to believe that EMPATHY is the key to healthy,communicative relationships. I studied with Dr. Marshall Rosenbergs' and intergrate his techniques for Non-Violent Communication Skills in my work.

If your life had a resumé, “chameleon” would be at the top. You’re so good at figuring out others’ needs, they’d never suspect that you have them too. If you were honest with yourself, though, you’d admit how stressful it is to live for other people. You’re terrified you’ll lose relationships if you speak up or say no. Your energy is drained or you feel resentful. You’re exhausted from wondering if others like you or approve of you. If you make choices that disappoint others, you feel guilty and selfish. Your whole identity is about pleasing others, & you want to feel comfortable being your authentic self, but you have no idea how.

Life is truly uncertain, yet the current pandemic has highlighted and intensified this experience for many of us. COVID-19 is changing how we look at and experience life, work and relationships, thus creating new thoughts and feelings about our lives. Whether you are encountering anxiety, depression, addiction, relationship issues and/or other possibly debilitating physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual obstacles they can be worked with during this time of uncertainty. Additionally, with over 15 years of experience in various healthcare settings I work with burnout, compassion fatigue, moral distress and other stressors.

"If the only tool you have in life is a hammer, everything looks like a nail!" Therapy is not for "weak" and "sick" people, but can be an excellent way to fill your "tool box," with skills to improve relationships, communicate more effectively, manage stress, emotions, and challenging life transitions. Therapy provides a safe, supportive, non-judgmental space in which you can develop skills, insights, and inspirations, leaving you feeling more empowered in many areas of your life. My training comes from 15+ years of experience in hospitals, treatment programs, correctional facilities, and private practice.
