If you got this far, you have done well on your own. Everyone struggles from time to time. These days, it seems we have more to deal with and less time, resources, and skills to cope in our ever-changing environment. Maybe you have noticed you are self-medicating with food, cannabis, alcohol, substances or other behaviors more than you are comfortable. Together, we will find ways to adapt, and thrive. You are the expert, and I am the instrument to help you remember what you may already know. Sometimes we just need support, encouragement, and assurance that there is a way to move through tough times.

I believe in the innate power each of us possesses to heal. Beginning with a gentle exploration of your story, your sense awareness and your feeling world, I seek to find a mutually agreed upon place to begin deeper work together. I hold close to embodiment (breath/gesture/sensation); creativity (playfulness/curiosity/possibility); and compassion (non-judgment/empathy/connection): all these are pathways to ground and support your healing process. I have found that depth of relationship itself is a healer, so I strive for a REAL, courageous relationship with my clients- capable of sustaining vulnerability, fierceness and deep transformations.

The quality of our personal relationships is one of the most important things in life. Relationships of all types--romantic, parental, friends, co-workers, etc.-- have the capacity for both tremendous joy and tremendous aggravation and heartache. My speciality is working with couples to help improve romantic relationships. Humans were created to be in relationship with one another and whether I am working with an individual, a couple or a larger family unit, the client's ability to maintain healthy relationships with family and loved ones is a primary focus.
