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. As group participants, 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.

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

Everyone experiences self-criticism and feelings of not being enough. As a group facilitator I create a warm and safe space in which client's can realize they are not alone in their struggles, can be heard and understood,and learn from others while connecting deeply and meaningfully. They begin to treat themselves as they would a friend.
