About

Relationships bring happiness, but also create longing and loneliness. They can preoccupy us and destroy our sense of safety and self-respect. If you feel stuck, overwhelmed, afraid, or lost, or are unable to decide about staying or leaving, have irresolvable conflicts, unmet needs, or feel devalued, I can help - also if you seek guidance with codependency, trauma, communication, intimacy or self-esteem. You'll gain awareness in your first session and quickly see changes in handling emotions, conflict, and boundaries. Whether seeking individual or couple counseling, you'll find solutions, empower, and an improved sense of well-being
My approach is individual and intuitive to make you feel comfortable. Along with advanced training, for 33 years I've helped individuals and couples affected by low self-esteem, codependency, abuse, anxiety, trauma, conflict, and addiction. I draw on extensive personal experience and professional training in using powerful healing techniques.
My books include Dating, Loving, & Leaving a Narcissist, Codependency for Dummies, Conquering Shame and Codependency, and 7 ebooks including: 10 Steps to Self-Esteem, How to Speak Your Mind, Spiritual Transformation in the Twelve Steps. On my website get FREE 14 Tips for Letting Go. I work by phone during Covid. See the Services page of my website.
