My Approach to Helping

My mission is to invite people to connect with their life path in ways that bring healing, growth, and transformation. It is my goal to offer you tools in which you identify and develop skills for: finding your direction; navigating your way; and discovering your wisdom. In working with an individual, couple, or family, I offer a mind-body approach that values your experience while inviting you to explore possibilities for improved health, relationships, and life satisfaction. I've developed a strength based perspective that draws on music, mandalas, art, poetry and journaling, and meditation to create opportunities for you to step into the experience of your own sense of well-being, possibility, and inspired resourcefulness.

More Info About My Practice
