About me

"Ode to Peace and Joy"... Sometimes life just stinks, and then it hurts, and we feel stuck…I am a fully licensed, seasoned professional with a flexibly-cohesive holistic approach, not subscribing to a “one-size-fits-all” perspective, for those patients with whom I am privileged to work.

Consider then joining hands for a season: Learn how to pinpoint your own belief system and unique strengths, while crystalizing your valued "short list" of priorities, and forge a unique sojourn designed to capture a life truly worthy of your precious time, effort, and resources. Time is a wonderful gift; what we do with that time can make all the difference.

Be here now... I love discovering with you not only your dreams and strengths, but any stumbling block that keeps getting in the way, and more importantly, how to surmount every one of them along the way, learning to savor each step as an opportunity . We will learn to identify your areas of vulnerability and develop ongoing ways to supplant gaps in any needed skill sets or where in life you may lack needed support in creating a more fulfilling, transformative life.

Transformative...I do consider it an honor to sojourn along with you and discover what works best for your life. I believe this life of ours is a fascinating gift that can be an adventure, and I continue to consider it a joy to work with each one who enters into the realm of my influence. While I believe we are fundamentally relational by design and thereby interconnected in powerful ways, we nevertheless remain wonderfully unique, each one having inherent dignity deserving of respect, and each one retaining the right to precious self-determination in how life is lived. I believe that together, by making our own lives better, we can leave our place in the world a bit better than we found it.

I look forward to the potential opportunity of exploring that journey with you.
