About

When facing a stressful life experience or traumatic event that is causing significant emotional distress, you may realize that working through it alone or talking with family and friends isn't enough to bring relief. Calling a professional dedicated to helping you understand and develop healthy coping skills is often the most difficult, but necessary step to finding relief, emotional growth and healing.
My work with clients is Person-Centered, exploring how past life experiences can affect our present behavior, coping style and choices. I use a Mindfulness-based approach, believing each person thrives when they experience a non-judgmental and compassionate acceptance as they work through the challenges they face. I am also an EMDR trained clinician.
My 30 year background in Nursing lends a deep understanding when working with clients faced with the challenge of living with life-changing, chronic illness. I also work with Caregivers whose stress often goes unnoticed and, as research shows, can lead to a decrease in both physical and psychological wellbeing.
