We all need someone to do deep listening with us at times, so that we can find our way home to ourselves and to our own inner wisdom, where we can transform our pain and difficulties. It is my honor to accompany you on this journey of self discovery and healing. I use gentle methods such as mind/body awareness, voice dialogue, guided imagery and other modalities to assist you in working through your pain and arriving at that place where you are feeling connected with yourself and others, and able to create the kind of life you truly want.
I utilize a whole-person approach in working with people and believe that all aspects of a person are relevant - the emotional, mental, physical and spiritual. I have a gentle and respectful approach, and believe in each person's capacity to heal.
I also teach mindfulness skills to help folks be able to be more calm and manage their difficult emotions.
