My Approach to Helping

NOW is your time for healing, growth and empowerment!

~ The spiral journey of life takes us through many cycles and seasons ~
Life is an ongoing series of endings and beginnings, changes that are both sought and unforeseen. We are never in exactly the same place� we once were (though it can certainly feel like it!). We come around to similar life patterns and challenges which present opportunities for deeper healing, new growth, and greater awareness.

Utilizing integrated psychotherapeutic approaches, I will respectfully help you attune to your spiral journey process and patterns, partnering with you to discover and follow the path that leads to greater fulfillment of your True Self.
