About My Clients

FREE 50 min in person/zoom session. COUPLES: not feeling valued or supported? Feelings disregarded? Too much conflict? Is s/he withdrawing? Little affection or sex? I effectively help couples form a “couple bubble”, a safe & secure connection based on trust, emotional & empathic connection, authenticity, gratitude & accountability. You'll be accessible, responsive, engaged, THERE for each other & you'll know you matter & be able to count on each other.

My Background and Approach

FREE 50 min in person/zoom session. I help clients build self-awareness by discovering patterns, limiting beliefs & attachment issues from your history that are impacting you now. Cognitively, you'll develop open, flexible & imaginative thinking to expand possibilities for your life. And we'll explore the brain/nervous system & neuroplasticity as they relate to emotional health. I'll also support you in cultivating mindfulness to increase your awareness of how you think and to make conscious decisions about your choices and behaviors. I also incorporate somatic awareness into my sessions in order for you to connect with the wisdom & intelligence your body holds.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Essentially, I believe people just want to feel good & live fulfilling lives. I believe this is possible when we have outlets for healing, healthy relationships, self-esteem/compassion, purpose, emotional intelligence & a calm mind as our foundation. I aim to help clients develop such a life with empathy & guidance & my strongest intention - to help you become a wise compassionate guide for yourself. Some of my strongest values are integrity, compassion & being of service. I have a regular meditation practice, I do yoga, dance and spend time in the wilderness to find peace and experience joy. I deeply believe in the healing power of creativity - I write music, draw and paint to process my life experiences. I'm committed to my own personal growth. I'm continuously healing, growing and connecting more deeply to myself. I am in a healthy secure partnership & having experienced losses myself, I am experienced with grieving and facilitate this process for my clients as well.
