We are part of a common humanity. We all want the same things. To be understood, recognized, treated with kindness and respect. To feel like we belong. We also share the same path to growth through our personal journeys of self-effort to overcome challenges. Do you feel like you are mastering this game of life? I’m here to remind you that You are more powerful over the story of your past or unhappy thought patterns. The Truth is that your life is simply what you create it to mean. Imagine yourself as the eagle that soars up into the sky. I can help you with issues in relationships, self-esteem, trauma, grief, life transitions, chronic illness, depression, anxiety, womens’ empowerment, aging-related, death/dying, and pet loss. My background is as a clinical social worker. For over twenty years, I worked with diverse cultures around the world in social work. I embrace uniqueness and honor differences. I support your self-determination and reflect your strengths. My approach is steeped in my practice of compassion, wisdom, and joy. I specialize in mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral, somatic experiencing, neuroscience and resiliency. I am honored to work with you in facilitating your empowerment. I will be your loudest cheerleader. I will keep you on your toes. I will listen with compassion and empathy. I will mirror your greatness. I hold you in my mind with the highest version of yourself and together we will discover your potential. You deserve to live a life worthy of you because you are great. You are the hero and heroine in your own life story.
