Times of chaos, confusion, and challenge are opportunities for a shift in perspective and meaningful, long-lasting change. We don't often have a choice about challenging circumstances but we do get to choose how we respond and whether or not we grow stronger from the experience! Using a blend of traditional "talk therapy" and alternative therapies (such as mindfulness, somatic awareness, and creative expression) we collaborate for my clients' restoration of their natural wellness in mind, body, and spirit. I can help you become your best self!

I present to therapy in the same way I present to all relationships in my life: a focus on authentic connection and a strong belief in the innate goodness of people. I believe that the therapeutic relationship plays an integral role in the process of navigating acceptance versus change with my clients. This means that I commit to bringing my true, authentic self to the room, when I am asking the same vulnerability of my clients. I work hard to ensure that my clients feel both validated and challenged to find balance and joy in their complex, overwhelming lives. I hold strongly that my clients already have the capabilities they need.

I have been in the counseling profession for over 40years. I still look forward to meeting new people who desire to change and have the courage to share their personal life with me. I believe the times we live in offer so much to so many, yet so many struggles with finding satisfaction, meaning and a sense of belonging in the world. I view the counseling/coaching process as one of collaboration with the counselor/coach and client to identify the client’s strengths and issues to work on. I believe therapeutic coaching relationship is the primary tool in facilitating personal growth.

Taking time to nourish our mental, emotional and physical well-being is essential to becoming and being our best selves. Self-care is the most important thing we can do for ourselves and those we care for, yet it is often overlooked or pushed aside because of pressing priorities. I commend you for taking this step towards self-care or to help a loved one.
