I have had great success with a wide variety of clientele, especially young girls and women dealing with depression, suicidal thoughts, and other emotional challenges (anxiety, low self-esteem, post traumatic stress disorder, and trauma.
Life is a challenge, regardless of who you are or your place in life. While I believe that all unique individuals are capable of self-love and self-healing, I also know from over 15 years of experience working with people that we all need a little help finding our way from time to time. I am glad that my professional and personal experiences have equipped me to help a wide range of people during difficult times of change or transition, and that I am able to offer my services to those in need.

I specialize in working with trauma, stress, anxiety, intimacy issues, women’s sexuality, sexual compulsions and the LGBTQ community. What clients say is most important in their healing process is my holistic and mindful approach to their emotional issues. Neuroscience is now proving that focusing on thoughts and emotions is not enough to bring change when our brains are “jumbled” and we just can’t think our way out of problems. Without awareness of both our total inner and outer worlds we can't get better. So I bring body awareness, sometimes called somatic therapy, into our collaborative work together. This makes a difference!
