Do you feel trapped in patterns that don't reflect who you are becoming? For 20+ years, I have aided individuals in resolving crises and discovering new meaning and direction. In a safe environment, using a 3 tiered depth approach, we uncover your soul's wisdom for healing and renewal."

"Do you have an issue that you need to discuss in a safe secure environment free of ridicule, embarrassment or harsh judgment? It may be a terrible secret that interferes with your enjoyment of life.

Are you in a life transition; divorce, death of loved one, job loss or empty nest syndrome? Are you estranged from your child or spouse? My approach is collaborative, together we can consider various remedies to address your particular situation."

"We live in Paradise but I realize at times even Paradise feels difficult. Looking for a therapist can be as challenging as the reasons we are seeking one. I approach therapy as a team, working together to find solutions, work through challenges, look at your strengths in an effort to bring some solace back into your life and get you living again, not just surviving. My style is primarily interactive, I work through the eyes of curiosity and I like to use humor and try to interject some fun into our therapy sessions, realizing how heavy it could be to work through your stuff."

"Healing for Addiction, Codependency and those affected by a Narcissist or Sociopath's behavior. I have been doing this work for over 27 years-NOT because I have to, but because I LOVE it. I am as engaged and enthusiastic about how therapy helps people as I was when I started. I have seen many people's lives change dramatically when they are given the education, tools, support and direction to courageously transform limitations into lessons they've needed to "get" but, unconsciously, have kept avoiding. With therapy, what's been bugging you can be faced and embraced."

"The choice of a therapist is deeply personal, and can be difficult to make from the cursory information on a website. Thus, I recommend an introductory session, during which you and I can get to know each other and discuss how our work together can benefit you. I have come to see that talking about problems, while important, is not necessarily enough to solve them. Thus, I provide tools to get at the root of your troubles, techniques to understand and change them, and guidance to help you steer your course to a more joyful and fulfilling life."

"Compassion and curiosity are the starting place for our exploration. Life is inherently challenging and difficult, and we all suffer from hurts large and small, past and present. And most of us are plagued by a strong inner critic who thinks they are helping but often shames and limits us. In spite of our best efforts, cycles of expectation and disappointment can leave us feeling confused, isolated, frustrated, and trapped in our habitual patterns. As Ta-Nehisi Coates put it, "I am marked by old codes, which shielded me in one world and then chained me in the next.""

"I think we've all been there: knowing something needs to change but not sure what to do or which way to go. Difficult times can overwhelm a person's ability to move forward in life. You may feel stuck, and not sure why. Relationships may not be going well, whether with a spouse/partner or friends and coworkers. Often, people find themselves in trouble with substance use, in an unhealthy attempt to cope that just makes things worse in the long run. Sometimes only a few sessions with a therapist can provide clarity and sense of relief."
