About

Are you wanting to have greater awareness, clarity, and authenticity? Do you desire positive changes in your life that fit with your deepest held values and joy? I can help you identify thoughts and emotions that might have led you to your current symptoms (anxiety, depression, etc). I believe you have the potential to manage many of these symptoms by developing insight, mindfulness skills, and self-compassion.These insights, along with new skills/techniques learned during therapy can help you make more supportive choices in your life. You can have a deeper acceptance of what is and be more of your authentic self.
I specialize in mindfulness, self-compassion, compassion fatigue, communication skills, and holistic approaches. I see individuals with relationship issues, depression, cross-cultural challenges, spiritual abuse, cancer, Lyme and chronic illness. I offer psycho-spiritual psychotherapy using dream work and exploring body/mind connections. I offer Telehealth.
I have studied/practiced/taught mindfulness and compassion cultivation practices, cross-cultural belief systems, communication skills, substance abuse, dream work. I have trained/practiced 35+ years in the mind/body/spirit relationship. I am a senior certified teacher of Cultivating Compassion Training (CCT) through Stanford's CCARE. I am certified in CEB.
