WELCOME NEW CLIENTS! My counseling style is affirming and collaborative. It's ideal for adults who experience anxiety, grief, burn out, adversity, transitions, and who want support moving from surviving into thriving, in a relaxed/comfortable setting. Caring guidance and knowledgeable support can make all the difference in the world! My goal is for clients to feel safe enough to then transform fear, hurt, resentments, and chronic stress. They can then align a personal self with a public self into an authentic self. It can be challenging yet exhilarating to allow vulnerability and step into the discomfort of healing our issues.

My personal growth journey began in 1989. I've experienced deep healing and became driven to help others increase quality of life, vitality, joy, self-worth, and emotion tolerance. Clients say I'm a good listener & very approachable. I have a special interest in professional burnout & am studying to become a Certified Compassion Fatigue Professional.

I provide judgement-free listening. I've been there--afraid, sad, lost, overwhelmed, numb, anxious... Are you ready to be heard? ... for compassion? ... for healing? Let's get to work with activities that help integrate lessons into REAL life--taking learning "from the head to the heart through the hands." Like my page at: Facebook.com/InTheHeartCounseling
