Is it sometimes a struggle to find contentment and security?
Has everyday life become more often depleting then energizing?
Do you sometimes feel off course or misaligned?
Do you seldom feel deeply understood?

You can feel better.
We live in a culture that, at times, has a toxic impact on our emotional well-being. Further, few of us have been taught the skills or offered the tools to better navigate our worlds and more deeply connect with our own highest wisdom. It's understandable then, to find ourselves struggling. But there is a way to finding greater balance and peace.

Through the Radiant Living System, clients are offered the techniques, tools and support needed to reduce suffering and increase well-being.
The steps involved will allow us to:

* Clarify your vision for living your best, most radiant & purposeful life
* Identify emotional & psychological blocks currently inhibiting this vision
* Become familiar with the blocks from various perspectives
* Explore an array of techniques to facilitate coping while expediting healing
* Extend your own personal growth and intuitive awareness

More Info About My Practice

As an intuitive psychotherapist, my work offers a balance between traditional talk therapy technique & skill and a much deeper and attuned listening. Conscious intuitive ability is the natural result of a this listening to our most sacred selves. Despite the universal presence of our intuitive wisdom, it can be difficult for many of us to access or recognize.

Intuitive Therapy can help clients expedite healing by bringing unconscious information to the conscious mind. Through optional supportive energy techniques (Emotional Freedom Technique, Breath work, Body Awareness, use of Expressive Arts), clients are invited to more fully honor their own inner-awareness.
