"Clear, Resolve, Transform. I help clients discover and resolve subconscious causes for emotionaI and behavioral difficulties. The Subconscious controls emotions, desires, memory, habits, thoughts, dreams, and automatic responses. One may consciously understand the value of eliminating problematic emotions, thoughts or behaviors but unless the Subconscious Mind is reached, enduring change is unlikely. I address the underlying subconscious blocks to living a clear and free life. I have effectively treated sexual abuse, trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, phobias, addictions and more. Issues are cleared, clients report being able to function with more energy and clarity. Relationships thrive and lives are transformed."

" It is my greatest gift to companion with others on the full spectrum of their human journeys. I believe that healing happens when we feel heard, seen and "gotten" by another. When someone can help us hold our life experience without judgment, we can find our own truth and wisdom. I like to help clients live into the big questions of life to find their own way. How do we hold compassion for ourselves in the midst of grief, heartache and dispair? How do we bear our sufferings or limitations with grace? Are we living from our whole-hearted self and deepest values? If not, what is in the way of it? Let's explore together."

"I believe in transformation - yours (and mine), and that the draw towards the good is irresistible. I want to know your story, how you tell it, and where you hope it will go. As your unfoldment happens (and, yes, it's always messy), it can be helpful to have a partner in this incredibly difficult yet doable work. As you move from less happy to more happy, you'll have an ally. Give me a relatively positive thought that your mind can embrace, and I will run with it. Calls are typically returned within two hours."

"If you find yourself struggling with feeling overwhelmed by so many life demands that you are unable to tend to your own needs, I can help you to recognize what is contributing to getting stuck and learn ways to get your life back. You may be immobilized by old, self-defeating habits, being driven by "shoulds", fears of being judged by others, or a general sense that taking time to take care of yourself will result in negative consequences. This likely impacts the quality of your relationships, health, and your sense of empowerment."
