About My Clients

Have you lost your passion and creativity? Do you feel stuck in your relationship or career? Are you highly sensitive, and feel overwhelmed and burned-out? I work with Highly Sensitive People, singles and couples, using CBT, mindfulness and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy. I am a relationship specialist, and specialize in pre-marital, marriage, break-ups, dating, life-purpose, and self-esteem building. I have diverse experience working with sexual diversity, addictions and cultural challenges.

My Background and Approach

My background is in bringing philosophy and theology into the realm of psychology. With over 20 years of extensive experience as a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Certified Life Coach, Certified Hypnotherapist, and NLP Practitioner, I work on both conscious and unconscious levels to facilitate powerful, lasting change. My own journey navigating tough times and very difficult human struggles has lead me to helping others transform their pain into feeling empowered, so they can use their gifts to fuel their lives and their relationships. I guide clients to revive, rekindle and succeed without feeling like they have to sacrifice who they are. I believe that in these difficult times, we are particularly in need of compassion, acceptance and finding and preserving the authenticity of who we are. I believe the work can be done both individually and on a relationship level, to improve connectivity, communication and happiness.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My belief is that deep down each person wants to live a meaningful life. We want to enjoy our lives and feel a sense of purpose. We want to matter and find self-value. We also need to feel loved, needed and appreciated. It is difficult to be our authentic selves when we have been covered by layers of conditioning, life contrast and trauma. When we can't express our authenticity, we experience internal and relational conflict, and seek reflection and assistance to find a way to experience our lives and ourselves differently. I believe that life is an alchemical process. Through both my own personal transformation and by helping others, I know that we are all here for a purpose, and there is always a way to navigate the process of alchemy or change in your life so that you come out absolutely loving both yourself and your life. My personal mission is to help you find that ‘gold’ within yourself, your ‘true’ self, and bring it into your life, so you can finally find true happiness!
