About My Clients

When clients reach out to me, some are already on a path of a personal growth, while others aren't sure what to do to make the changes they want or need. Often they feel anxious or stuck, and experience challenges in relationships, at home or work. I guide clients to cultivate awareness and gain clarity within themselves so they can more easily navigate feelings/emotions, thoughts, beliefs and behaviors, and make choices that connect with what's most true for them.

My Background and Approach

Since 2007 I've supported couples and individuals to develop healthier relationships, manage and reduce stress, anxiety and depression, and improve self-esteem through greater connectedness with their true nature. I work with clients to help them gain clarity, ease distressing thoughts and feelings, and connect more deeply with what's most true for them. Together we explore what's held in mind, heart and body to identify and release what no longer serves you and embrace your strengths and what's uniquely you. My approach is engaged, participative and empowering with practical, actionable information and guidance that can lead to genuine personal change and growth. Tenets of my work include authenticity, empathy, and curiosity.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe understanding and embracing your true nature is core to living a more fulfilling life. When deeply connected to who you are, experiences feel more authentic and relationships more genuine and caring. You have greater self-love, self-acceptance and self-compassion, and can handle challenging experiences and difficult decisions with greater confidence and ease.
