Over my 35 years of counseling, I have found that developing self-compassion, although it may seem difficult, is at the root of healing negative core beliefs and creating a life with more acceptance of one's self and consequently others. My clients are excited about having a concrete pathway to creating real change at the core. We work together to develop greater self-awareness, an attitude of kindness, and the realization that we are not alone in our emotional pain.I have found that kind relationships, are at the heart of a well-balanced, joyful, healthy and productive life.

Many of my clients experience deep support and lasting change in dealing with: Grief and loss, self-worth and acceptance, midlife, and other transitions, changing negative patterns and behaviors, communication, conflict and intimacy issues, depression & anxiety, grieving and readjusting after separation/divorce.

I believe you have the wisdom and resources to alter these beliefs and old patterns of behavior and come to a place of greater contentment. I'll help you explore your concerns and in a supportive, caring and interactive manner develop a plan and gain the strength to make lasting change.
