About Me

If you want things to change for you including changing your self, I believe I can help. Resilience is positive, constructive, and satisfying adaptation. I specialize in awakening this quality in clients. My work fosters emotional agility, develops mental clarity, and optimizes personal power. Whether you feel out of balance, lost, broken, or looking to express yourself more fully, we can quickly activate growth in the direction you choose in order to feel better, possibly great, and deal well with what life presents. You can expect to access your strengths and activate your will to not simply survive but thrive and even flourish. You can expect to align with your positive energy and build more expansive patterns of thought, emotion, and action.

I bring to my practice over 34 years of experience working with a rich variety of people, providing psycho-social therapy and facilitating personal growth. I am proficient in cognitive behavioral techniques among others. I also employ energy psychology strategies. My work aims to build emotional fitness and optimize personal freedom. I work to help you achieve your highest level of well being.
