About me

Licensed in NY, CT, and NM with 3+ decades of experience supporting individuals and couples to navigate their lives and relationships towards greater truth, passion, and purpose.

For Individuals - Navigating a world in transition, pandemics, and the pressures of social media - it's not unusual to feel overwhelmed, anxious, dismissed, or not good enough. Sorting out your feelings, what's true for you and hearing your own voice amidst the noise, is essential to feeling connected, peaceful and positive. In a safe and compassionate environment, we will work towards your goals based on your measurements of success. This may include creating behaviors and shifting inner dialogue to be more self-affirming, strengthening assertiveness and communication skills, getting clear on your vision for your life and creating a realistic plan to get there, and wringing out pain that may be blocking you from your dreams, desires, and best relationships.

For Couples - In relationships, each person wants to feel seen ,heard, and valued.. In my experience, both partners desire the same things (though it may absolutely seem otherwise) and it may feel like you are beating your head against the wall trying to make things work. Consider me your coach, or mechanic - helping you strengthen the dance (or stop the transmission from pinging ) so things run smoother, and you both feel more honored, supported, and connected. Focusing on both your individual and shared goals, you can move into what DOES make your relationship successful.

You've just taken the most important step - reaching out.
I am honored and excited to support you in your journey!
