To the world you may be one person; but to one person

you may be the world.

Today is your day, your mountain is waiting. So get on your way.

~ Dr. Seuss ~

The first step in finding relief from suffering is telling our stories. Often we don’t feel safe sharing with others our deep and vulnerable thoughts and feelings.  My first priority with clients is that they feel safe and comfortable. Without this, growth, change and healing may not come so easily, if at all.


After a safe foundation is established, your work can begin.  I offer a warm, caring professionalism that allows you to feel safe, heard and understood, and guide you to your own inner power to make changes in your life, find and utilize your own talents, and achieve your goals.

I have extensive experience working with individuals, couples and families who are survivors of trauma, including sexual abuse, families in transition due to divorce or grief and loss, acute and chronic illness, and domestic abuse. I conduct parenting and couples' empowerment groups, having worked with a variety of people from all walks of life. Over the years I have discovered that some of the people who are most drawn to me seek help with traumatic events/news, depression and anxiety. Having personally learned to transform these energies within myself, I know what it’s like to battle with such emotions. I find that there are many techniques that are most effective in working with these emotions, and tailor my approach to each individual.
