About

Had enough of not being enough? Misunderstood? Feeling inauthentic? If you are living life from past hurts, you’ll find yourself depressed, anxious, exhausted, stressed and feeling stuck. The focus of my practice is empowering others to see their self-worth and inspire them into action. You don’t have to know how to heal; if you are willing to heal and show up, we will get you to your destination. Living in present time authentically means sorting though the things that are no longer useful to you. Ready to move from anxiety and depression and become empowered from the inside out? I'm here to help.
I have an integrative practice drawing from many resources including body-mind therapy, mindfulness, arts therapies, cognitive-behavioral, belief systems and non-theistic spirituality. My concentration include: Tech Professionals, Women in Tech, Midlife Transition, Caretaker Overwhelm, Special Needs Parenting and Pet Loss and Grief.
I practice what I preach, am open-minded and have a sense of humor. I am non-judgmental and comfortably treat diverse cultures and sexual preferences. My clients say I am easy to talk to and be with. You absolutely can heal, failure is impossible and success is a choice. Whatever your differences, you are welcome; I'm here to help, reach out.
