Announcement icon I now hold online sessions with ALL my clients via Zoom encyrpted through Simple Practice. If they prefer, we use Facetime or Skype.
The idea that one learns by experiencing and that one is truly capable of making the necessary shifts in their lives is a mantra I live by. When one person mirrors another with gentle listening interspersed, others are able to clearly see what no longer works in their lives. Ingrained habits coming from difficult childhoods could be the very source of havoc, that with conscious awareness, can shift. Perhaps the way one communicates is keeping love from flowing in your life. Maybe parenting a child who reminds you of yourself is confronting on a deeply personal level. Or perhaps it is simply a life transition that is simply too much.
I work with individuals, allowing them to see their issues and strengths with compassion, humor and art. I incorporate mindfulness, laughter and a sense of artistic intelligence, so that clients can bring a centered aliveness to their lives. When stressful times arise, they can bring every resource available to them to become powerful and resilient.
I see children, individuals, groups and families. My education background grants me insight into working with children, especially adolescent girls. I relish working with anyone committed to their own growth. I work with communication and relationship issues, patterns, depression, trauma, PTSD and family issues. Together we will explore what's right for you.
