My Approach to Helping

As a collaborative therapist and shamanic practitioner, I view problems as blessings pointing us in the direction of wellness. Using life's challenges as a guide, we work together to build the foundation of self you need in order to live an enriching and fully human life. This deep work benefits not only yourself but also your loved ones and the rest of our human family.

Along with a focus on mindfulness, I specialize in spiritual development for individuals and couples. I assist clients of all sexual orientations and cultural backgrounds develop authentic intimacy and compassionate communication.

More Info About My Practice

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.

Online coaching is also available.

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.
