"My goal is help people develop a healthy relationship with themselves, their bodies, and others. So many of us struggle in our lives because we are unconsciously stuck with a perspective that helped us survive in the past, but that no longer serves us in the present. We're afraid of our own shadow and hide the parts of us we most dislike, which keeps us stuck, guarded and fearful. Look at your emotional, behavioral and relational patterns, and you will move into a more mindful, creative, healthy and fullfilling life."

"Most of us were taught that gender, like sexual orientation, was binary. We now know this is false. Gender non-conforming, genderqueer, non-binary, agender; gender IS fluid and exists ON a SPECTRUM. Many trans people have been afraid to embrace their true gender due to societal and familial ramifications. We are entering a new age when the need for trans people to remain in the shadows to "fit in" or "please others" is being transcended. I believe every trans person deserves a safe, well-informed and empathetic environment to consider the impacts of transphobia and the destruction it leaves in it's wake. Trans is beautiful! "

Conflicts in love and work, body image or physical symptoms can lead to anxiety, shame and a sense of "going through the motions." Whether your difficulties are current or long-standing, I believe there are effective ways to understand and soften these painful feelings.

OCD/anxiety can cause problems socially, academically, professionally, and create chaos with family members. The good news is that there is help.

But because few of us have experienced what it feels like to reach toward the soft embrace of another, and also be held, loved, and received just as we are, how we see and what we tell ourselves in response to life's struggles can become distorted. We develop false senses of self; we wrestle with depression, anxiety, and obsessional thinking. We fall prey to addictions, and we struggle in our relationships, finding ourselves in patterns that bring conflict and disconnection. "
