I work with people who want to improve themselves, their relationships and their self image. These are people seeking a sounding board, a safe confidential place to talk, and extensive knowledge and experience dealing with their issues. My work focuses on where the client is now, and where they want to go, with no pre-conceived notions. We look at past experiences together and how they impact the present. For parents, I offer coaching and suggestions for managing challenging behaviors, and understanding the impact of early childhood trauma of behavior. With younger children, I encourage learning about expression of feelings.

I use a systemic approach to therapy involving: talk therapy, coaching, nutritional assessment, as well as referrals to psychiatrists, acupuncturists and support groups.
I developed Full Circle after working as a social worker for many years in the fields of surrogacy, infertility and medical social work. I have witnessed clinically, professionally and personally how infertility has impacted the lives of so many women and their partners. On a personal note, my sister experienced four years of infertility which cumulated in many IUI attempts and resulted in a beautiful baby girl being born at the end of 2010-thanks to IVF.

My specialties include coaching women around wellness, navigating separation and divorce, parenting support, anxiety, self-esteem issues, coping and relaxation techniques and spiritual growth.
Have you had a great idea, a POP,  only to talk yourself out of it?  Started a project but abandoned it, telling yourself it was too overwhelming or just not doable?  Wanted to try something new or different and been discouraged by your own thoughts or the words of others?  We all have, haven’t we?  I certainly have.  So what is the driver behind our stopping, getting distracted, being “too busy” and talking ourselves out of actions and desires that will lead to greater fulfillment or happiness?   Fear!  Fear stops us from all things possible, from opening up and receiving the brilliance that this lifetime offers!

Many people find me because something they are doing has become larger than they want it to be and is no longer working. It could be technology use (my special interest), substance use, pornography, working, or gambling, among many other things. Often these behaviors show up when people are experiencing stress, interpersonal conflict, insomnia, sadness, anxiety, existential crises, self-doubt, self-criticism, or the pain of high self-expectations, and so our work focuses upon these topics as well. I work with teenagers and adults in individual therapy, including some joint family or couple sessions as needed to support loved ones.
