About

My approach focuses on strengths and what's working in one's life, while also assisting in practical problem solving. Those who want to establish a mind/body/spirit connection and have more joy in their lives will benefit the most by working with me. My excitement for counseling and coaching comes from helping people create wellness and balance, while going through life's transitions: college, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging, adjusting to losses and dealing with health issues. I'm also a cancer survivor interested in helping others on their healing journey.
My clients will learn the essential skills needed to navigate through life's challenges: Communication skills for better relationships, stress management and coping skills for regulating anxiety and stress, increasing strengths to face problems and emotional balancing techniques for more harmony in one's feeling states. Contact me for a FREE introductory phone consultation!
I bring to our counseling sessions everything I've studied and practiced: building skills for more resiliency, guided imagery, meditation, art therapy, wellness and spiritual awareness to support you through life transitions. I truly believe that in the challenges we face, there are great gifts to be revealed, and I look forward to helping you discover them!
