"The Third Chapter (age 50-80) is a rich time for reworking our lives to assure we live authentically and with passion, while there's still time. This season is for laying to rest our traumas, regrets and failures, fantasies of what our life was going to be, and looking ourselves squarely in the eye with unbridled truth about who we really are, and who we might yet become. While we may have more time, finances, and wisdom, this chapter can also find us stuck, as anxiety takes the foreground and creativity seems to be a luxury we cannot afford. ."

"With life and relationships comes vulnerability, and too often, pain and feelings of betrayal. These experiences can become defining factors in our relationships with ourselves and others moving forward, when not processed in a caring, self-compassionate way. Experiences of hurt, or even trauma, can leave us feeling small, lonely, and often with feelings of secrecy or shame. I work collaboratively with each client to help them unlock old patterns or experiences of pain to find more awareness about what is holding them back in their lives, and to move forward fully."
