Orientation & Approach

My orientation and training is quite eclectic--drawing from depth psychology in the Jungian tradition, meditation and imagery, cognitive-behavioral, existential, developmental practices and humor, among others. I am trained in our connection to the earth and all things.

My studies teach that each individual has unlived potential, meaning and purpose in life. As we deepen truths and broaden understandings, our emotional and physical signs and symptoms can transform. At each step, we enrich relationships to our psyches, bodies, others and the earth. Because of this deep process, each client relationship is unique and created together.

Personal Comments

During my career as a professional nurse, I witnessed the deep connections of mind/body/spirit. With the manifestation of the multiple sclerosis in my body, I was driven to understand the depth of these connections. I, then, entered graduate school, as well as, intensive work with highly trained professionals from other traditions. As a result my symptoms dissolved, and have been absent for over 16 years, as my well-being grew. I feel a debt of gratitude and also commitment to share the understandings invested in me during my recovery and thereafter.
