WELCOME

The About Me is really about you and if you feel there is an us.

I am a trained and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist from the USA. I refer to myself as a compassionate  intuitive with grit. I am a ‘digger’ by nature and thus, we go where we need to (not always want to) to do core level change. I do not do bandaid fixes and honestly, I do not know how.

My goal is to hold space for you to do the most sensitive and raw work.  I do this in all aspects of my healing work.  I may also serve to be your most honest mirror that illuminates all needed parts of you–reflecting those bits that can be hidden, painful and hard to look at.  As you likely know, these are often the very things that trip you and block you in your journey.  This can be quite the delicate dance and my training (listed below) has afforded me the skills that I can, in turn, teach you. The truth is that all of your healing and changing is truly done by you. I am merely a guide or coach in the process.

I have learned through my 20 years of practice that the invisible pattern that connects me to others is THEIR desire for core level change and the belief that I am the person to help them do it.  Many people I have worked with have had negative and disappointing experiences in the past. I understand the fear and hesitation in starting this journey.  Positive change can be scary and hurt at times. I am here to offer you a different experience and to assist you in creating that quality of life that you desire. Yes, it is possible–even though it may seem more like a fantasy than a reality at this time.

I appreciate that you are just trying to figure out right now if I can even help you. If you find it helpful, please refer below to a summary of my education and training. However, I suspect that you likely already have a strong feeling of whether we are a match.
