Orientation & Approach

I come from a strength-based perspective and mind-body integration approach. I see strengths in all my clients and help you utilize these strengths to live to your full potential. Through mind-body integration, I help you gain awareness of sensations happening in your body. You’ll learn how to consciously connect those feelings to emotions; to move through your feelings and express your emotions, rather than holding on to them. All the while we celebrate each step you make toward your goals!

Personal Comments

I have specific training in Collaborative Problem Solving and Solution Focused Brief Treatment. I am currently training with the Hendricks Institute and will eventually go through their advanced leadership program; Gay and Katie Hendricks focus on conscious living and loving, and some of their books include The Big Leap: Conquer Your Hidden Fear and Take Life to the Next Level, Conscious Living: How to Create a Life of Your Own Design, and The Conscious Heart: Seven Soul-Choices That Create Your Relationship Destiny. Most recently, I attended a workshop with Esther Perel (author of Mating in Captivity) and plan on continuing to train with her as well. I am passionate about what I do and love to bring what I learn back to my practice—as well to as my own life.
