About Me

Health and healing are journeys. I am always honored when clients ask me along on the journey towards recovery from the trauma or devastation robbing them of the ability to trust themselves or others. Always, am I humbled and awed at their transformation! If you seek improvements, in any area of your life, let's work together to identify your passions and possibilities, map and monitor your progress, and manage the dynamics that keep you stuck. You, too, can heal from trauma, manage difficult relationships, overcome mental health challenges, surmount career set-backs, or improve your self-esteem with insight and guidance. Using movement psychotherapy, coaching, emotional accupressure, hypnotherapy, and image consulting strategies, I can help you recover from patterns which have rendered you unsuccessful in the past and help you design the life you truly want to live.
