"Sometimes we need a caring person, skilled at listening, who will act as a mirror, reflecting back our deepest knowing and personal truth. The act of entrusting another in this manner helps us to realign with our wisest self. We begin feeling more at ease and clearer about our intentions. Choices begin to reflect who we really want to be in the world. Suddenly, we are noticing and appreciating what is right and joyful in life more of the time."

"{My practice is full, so I am not accepting new clients at this time} Do you feel stuck in patterns that lead to stress, conflict, and/or withdrawal from life? Are you struggling with anger, fear, confusion, or sadness? Are you dissatisfied with life and don't know why? Having the courage to admit that things aren't going well is the first step to changing them. My approach supports you in being less identified with habitual ways of thinking and feeling that keep you stuck in patterns that no longer work. I have helped many clients be less reactive and more compassionate with themselves and others. "

I work primarily with people who are interested in a somatic (body-oriented) mindfulness approach that can help free them from remaining stuck in old, repetitive patterns.

"Impossible is temporary. As a relational psychologist specializing in issues like trauma and addictions, I have learned this time and time again. The combination of a supportive relationship, motivation to change well-worn patterns, and clear, concrete guidance can lead to changes far beyond what people believe is possible. Sometimes it seems "impossible" to live a deeper, more connected existence. We may carry scars of rejection and betrayal that keep us from being our truest selves. We heal in the context of genuine, warm, accepting relationships that also encourage us to take risks. I so enjoy building these relationships."
