My Approach to Helping
As a holistic therapist and shamanic practitioner, I work with people in midlife who worry they are slipping into irrelevance as they age. I help them begin (or continue) deep inner work so they can step into mentorship of younger people in their communities. Being your best self is an admirable goal. But that's not enough! Your unique presence is needed in the world to help younger people see that a real, messy, beautiful, productive life is possible. Be of service by being your self.
More Info About My Practice
•• All sessions are securely online via Zoom or by phone. ••
I hold a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy, an MFA in Creative Writing, and certifications in Transformational Life Coaching and Clinical Hypnotherapy. I received shamanic training from the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. My background includes a long career in the arts—writing and acting—which informs my work with creative clients.
I offer mindfulness practices as well as shamanic healing work, based on your need and interest.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
Worried about getting locked into long-term therapy? Book a single session. (Really, it's okay.) We'll take it from there. Our work is based on your needs. Contact me for a free phone consultation.
What Makes up a Problem?
Whatever feels "off" in your life -- depression, unhealthy relationships, dead-end careers, grief, loneliness, low self-esteem -- is a symptom of a larger problem: an unbalanced and under-appreciated self.
Just like a fever lets us know we have an infection, life problems let us know something deep within us isn't right. We don't blame the fever, we thank it for alerting us to the bigger problem. It's exactly the same in our work together. Your problems become beacons lighting the way toward the self you want to be.
