Do you sometimes feel isolated, invisible, or uncertain of what’s next? Feel broken or not enough? Or stuck and unable to move forward? Perhaps I can help! Clients have told me that I am not a typical talk therapist.

I work with an eclectic toolbox of proven counseling methods and the latest research from neuro-psychology. I combine talk therapy with mind-body and somatic approaches such as Mindfulness, Polyvagal techniques and NET (Neuro-Emotional Technique). My wellness approach encompasses mind, body and spirit with a feminist and multi-cultural perspective. With this combination, you can discover those patterns of behavior and thought that no longer protect you or the triggers and blocks that get in your way of having the life that you want. You can find your voice, achieve a real sense of calmness and safety, and develop your inner strength and confidence.

I came to this field later in life. My experiences have taught me that life can be messy and that change can be hard. Like you, I have struggled. But if you’re willing to dig in and put in the work, life can also be satisfying, joyful and full. I’m not interested in your telling your story over and over again. I will listen to you. I will respect you … but I won’t always agree AND I will challenge you!

I work with adults of all ages and specialize in the issues and transitions experienced by older adults. Whether you are experiencing stress, trauma (from the past or present), or PTSD, grief and loss, depression or anxiety, or chronic pain and illness, I’ve been there. Whether you are an adult struggling with ADD/ADHD, an artist or performer struggling with creative blocks or performance anxiety, or an adoptee struggling with issues related to your identity or culture, family loyalty and guilt, I’ve been there, too!

I believe that Every Day A New Story Begins. SO WHY NOT YOURS!
