Love who you are

My Approach

I see clients from a strengths perspective in that:

  1. We are the sum total of all the experiences we have had so far, and no matter where you have been in life, you are already whole and complete as you are.
  2. What lies within you are the necessary resources to help you through whatever life presents on your path. I’m a guide to those valuable inner resources that lead to healing and lasting change and transformation.
  3. We are all unique, yet the same…we are all striving for love and healthy relating. My commitment to my clients is to help them find the love within.  For once found, life and relationships will never be the same.
  4. I believe that both change and love need to start within our own hearts first, which leads to greater impact in our relationships and in the world at large.

Who Am I?

I see myself as a tour guide to what lies beneath the surface of your emotional waters where necessary resources can be found and where deep transformation can take place. I am passionate about healing and I love assisting others in their own explorations and witnessing their growth in self-compassion and self-awareness.  For over 20 years. I have held that deep honor and privilege of exploring the hearts and souls of my clients.

I’m a firm believer in, “you cannot transmit what you don’t already possess”. I have done deep work on my own inner landscape – so that I may better lead and guide you.  I personally know what “emotional rocks” to look under to assist in healing and restoring one to wholeness.

In addition, I am passionate about nature, our environment and exploring both the inner and outer worlds having traveled to 42 countries and learned from many cultures around the world.
