Using an approach that is straightforward and non-judgmental, my practice focuses on what I have found to be the most effective methods for helping clients discover the beauty of who they really are -- I call them Power TherapiesBy equipping clients with the tools and skills to effectively manage life’s challenges, they can continue their growth for years to come. My hope for every client is to dissolve issues rather than just manage symptoms and to develop the resilience and clarity needed to allow their true, “authentic” selves to shine through.


Living a vibrant, emotionally-balanced life is affected deeply by your physical health. All too often the vitality of the physical body is ignored, even though there is ample scientific evidence that an out-of-balance body can contribute significantly to an out-of-balance state of mind. Coping with my own health issues and those of my five children lead me to learn about nutrition as well as alternative medicine. Nature also has a powerful effect on emotional health to which I can attest as a hiker and kayaker! You could call me a nutri-eco-psychologist! 

My personal experience informs the empathy and compassion I am able to bring to each session. Having navigated the waters of illness, marriage, divorce, and single-parenthood, I came to realize that every one of those difficult situations contributed an important part to who I am today. And even though you may feel lost and sometimes desperate, it is those challenges that forge the resilient and vibrant person you can become.

My clients have allowed me to witness their courage and the incredible perseverance of the soul as they face their issues and begin to discover within themselves the ability to make peace with “what is” while working to create something more satisfying in their lives. And isn’t that what we all want?
