About Me & My Practice


Holistic Psychotherapist
Life, Money, Business and Career Coach
Certified Core Energetics Therapist

I feel that the most important relationship we have begins with oneself. I have come through a journey of self-discovery, self-responsibility and self-transformation. I've taken many risks in life, from moving to another country for a short time and living in a spiritual community, to leaving a secure corporate job. This has been the gateway to connect with my life force. I've had many jobs in life (executive legal assistant, financial systems banker, marketing director), and then in my early 40's I went back to college to complete my Bachelors, Masters and Post-Graduate studies.

I am committed to helping others explore, embrace and change their lives...opening the way to a deeper awareness of their authenticity, vitality and integrity, and creating a more enriched and fulfilled life.

I am founder and President of "Money and Self-Empowerment" and facilitate groups, workshops, classes and webinars. I'm adjunct faculty at NYU School of Continuing and Professional Studies, Bark Coaching Institute and the 92nd Street Y. I am also an Education Provider with the Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services, National Association of Social Workers, National Board of Certified Counselors and NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals. In addition, I wrote and created the "Money and Empowerment Abundance and Prosperity Cards."


I have a few specialties, although I work with people in many different areas of their lives and on many different levels. I specialize in helping people develop a healthy relationship with money, career direction and transitions, building confidence, greater self-esteem and a sense of direction and purpose in life.

When addressing money issues, we explore your beliefs, attitudes and misconceptions about how money keeps you from manifesting abundance in all areas of your life, and how to create abundance as a state of consciousness. We will explore whatever concerns you have and find the best way to take a realistic step-by-step approach to reach your goals.

When working with career and life transitions, we explore what keeps you stuck in your job, resistance to change, and what gets your juices flowing. This is the key to helping you connect to who you are, what you value, and what helps you to express your greatest potential.

In working to help you build confidence and greater self-esteem, we explore new ways and tools to help you change the negative and familiar patterns into positive energy. This goes hand-in-hand with creating a positive intention to honor your life and align with your values. It will help you to feel more in control and self-empowered.

We will create a safe environment for you to explore your life. You are unique. You are who YOU are. The more you acknowledge, understand and accept yourself, the more you can be in your life with both the good and challenging times. You can meet life on life's terms and find opportunities to grow and thrive.

I integrate my rich background of training and experience in clinical social work, Pathwork Studies, Core Energetics, leadership and spirituality into my work. I believe that the journey of the soul is a healing process that restores energy and consciousness to the individual, which promotes creativity, self-expression and personal integrity.

I work with people in person, on the telephone and through Skype via the internet.

Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you!

All the best,
