My Approach to Helping

Offering genuine warmth and acceptance of your unique challenges is where I like to start. I love helping people find a greater sense of their self worth. Perhaps you have emotional resources that you are unaware of. It is a joy to help you contact your strength and innate wisdom. I believe that your answers are within you and that together we can discover them.

My lifelong passion for personal growth has included explorations within a large variety of psychological and spiritual modalities and includes 40 years of meditation practice.

Having been through many personal life transitions has broadened my range of experience and helps me to empathize with others. I've traveled widely which helps me to be at home with many varieties of experience and orientation whether cultural, sexual, or age related.

Special interests of mine are women's empowerment, and sexual and cultural diversity.
My registered therapy dog is available for those who would like her to join our sessions.

My Role as a Therapist
