Are you feeling stuck?
Sometimes the job of taking care of ourselves is to big for one person. I work for you.
Contact me to hear about exciting possibilities that await you. A phone call or email may be the beginning of the best thing you ever did for yourself.

AWARENESS/CHOICE models help you to think differently about the same old stuff, especially how you see yourself. We owe it to ourselves to know why we think what we think and do what we do.
Conserve energy. You may only control for you.

My televion series,"UKNOW What You Know," was about living confidently and comfortably. Many struggle with feeling confident. I meet you where you are in this struggle for feeling better about yourself. This is our starting place, without judgment.

Therapists are people.
