About Me & My Practice

Daily living involves so many competing demands. I specialize in helping you re-connect with the one demand that allows you to respond much more easily to any others. Actually, this is not as much a demand as your call from within you that's waiting for you to pay attention inside first. When you can attend to yourself first and foremost, this clarifies your choices and decisions in sucessfully coping with external demands. This is what is meant by "living from the inside out," which gives you more health, comfort and enjoyment - less stress, less confusion. My approach is empathic, spiritual, thougtful, interactive, and dedicated to the support of your well-being.

Your past is important to the extent that it continues to influence you NOW, especially in ways that may be hard to identify and understand. Confronting the influence of your past can be uncomfortable at first, until you discover your power to take kind and mindful charge of your choices, rather than feeling that your "issues" or problems are unkindly running you.

I have worked with a wide range of individuals and couples for over 15 years. As a professional, I am trained to enter YOUR world as fully as possible, where it is my honor and privilege to collaborate with and support you in finding what works. My FOCUS is to help you define and align with the PERSONAL MEANING and direction in your life. Self exploration - living from the inside out - is truly a fascinating and rewarding voyage. STOP WEARING YOURSELF OUT and SURPRISE YOURSELF instead. Much like a singer's instrument is her/his voice, learn to TUNE IN to yourself as your best instrument for living. TREAT YOURSELF to the powerful discovery that YOUR VERY BEST RESOURCE and ALLY really is YOU.
