About

My ideal client is a person who doesn't want to give up on him/her/themself and the dream of a fulfilling life. I support clients to know the truth: they deserve love and success no matter what wounds they've experienced. I help people uncover the deep wisdom and restorative potential living within them. I do this gently and safely, in the present moment, by reconnecting clients with healing, embodied emotional experience. This gets vitality and intuition moving again I support people to take responsibility (but not blame) in any life/work/relationship upset because this is what works!
Transformation happens when clients are comfortable in their skins in a warm and respectful relationship. When emotional/body numbness interferes with being present to both self and others, it's important to thaw out gradually and safely. I help clients learn how to do this with or without medication.
I offer a unique blend of mindfulness and body based, relational and emotionally focused therapy. After 40 + years experience, I continue to learn new and effective ways of helping clients quickly and elegantly develop the self love necessary to make the healthy choices required for a fulfilled life. For reduced fees, ask about the AEDP Research project.
