Welcome to my soul-centered psychotherapy practice. With an unshakeable belief in your ability to heal and thrive, and 20 years of helping clients through their darkest nights of grieving and loss - a sanctuary of trust, nurturing wisdom and deep healing is here for you. We will explore your inner world and the power of holistic and spiritual psychotherapies - mindfulness and body-based therapies that transform people's lives. I specialize in working with adults of all ages, who need help with the sometimes devastating and often overwhelming symptoms that grief brings.

Through this heart-centered and sacred soul work, you will learn how to ride the waves of grief, anxiety, and overwhelming life transitions, with self-loving kindness, self-compassion and forgiveness - cultivating a deeper trust in the difficult gifts of healing opportunity that life has to offer.

I am a grief guide whose own tragedies of grief and loss have healed and opened my heart to assist you, like nothing else can. This deep inner work, along with extensive professional training and spiritual practice, will nurture a heart-centered, genuine connection with you. I look forward to beginning our journey together.
