About

Everyone has ups and downs in their journey of life, but sometimes you need additional support to navigate particular low points. Your thinking may be cyclical, so addressing the problem from multiple angles, with various lenses, can be the breakthrough that is needed. I work with a Humanistic and Positive Psychology framework that sees you as whole and focuses on your strengths. You are not your trauma, your grief, or your diagnosis. I want to help you to improve your quality of life and to fulfill your potential. I also use Resilience coaching to look at your mental, physical and emotional needs, to identify growth areas.
Over my many years of experience I have honed a unique method. I offer a mix of tools and integrative practices that are all beneficial for working with difficulties. These include: Psychotherapy, Art Therapy, Time to Think coaching, Mindfulness based practices, guided imagery, Resilience coaching, Enneagram coaching, creative arts and whole body attunement.
Reaching out to share personal stories with a stranger can be intimidating. I want to help make this first step easier. Join me for a free 30 minute chemistry session on Zoom, for me to explain what I offer and to see if we will work well together. Come with an open mind. Let me support you. I offer a calm, person-centered and welcoming space.
