Don't let others steal your thunder, take away your sparkle, or make you feel less than. Find your North Star. Connect to the Power of I Am and learn to raise your energy, self-esteem, confidence, and productivity. I am here to help you with your personal and/or professional concerns and get you off  that "tight rope." Tightrope walking

Learn to live in the present, not the past, and not the future!
Do your feel like  you are missing out on life? Have stress, or feeling of burn out or disconnection taken over your life? Do the people you know and care about, really do not understand you and what you are going through? Do you feel like an imposter in the office and a monster at home? Do you feel like you are walking on the tight rope of life and feel worried that you are about to fall and crash? Learn to take the challenges in your life and view them as a "practice lab" to create "magic" by learning to take a negative experience or negative situation and turn it into a "golden opportunity" to become happy and successful in your relationship with yourself, others, and in the work place.
 
I am here to help you manifest the life you want and truly desire .Psychotherapy, Hypnosis, and Life Coaching  offer you profound experiences to promote healthier, lasting ways to view and experience the world you live in. and the benefits of change are immense. learn to shift from old, frustrating patterns that no longer work for you and learn to step out of your old self defeating ways to see the world with a different lens. Being able to stop self-sabotage is life changing. If you are troubled with anxiety, depression and other emotional problem, you are very welcome to schedule an appointment with me. You may wish to come alone or bring your partner for couples therapy or marriage counseling. If the problem involves your child or the entire family, everyone is invited to attend. I have both secular and non-secular education and advanced training in the areas of registered nurse education, psychology, counseling, religious and holistic studies.

I welcome you to my website and my Wellness Counseling &Training Center, which addresses both personal change and spiritual development.  I  provide a safe, open atmosphere in which couples, groups, and people of all ages learn, explore, and grow.  You may be seeking clarity and healing through counseling, transformation through depth psychotherapy, or spiritual growth and guidance.

I want to share with you age-old and currently evolving teachings and methods that can guide and support you on your unique process of unfolding, evolving,  and healing. I provide groups and workshops to draw upon the collective energy of people coming together for growth and empoweroment groups, which accelerates and deepens each individual’s experience.

I want to help you sense and trust your inner knowing, deleop your intuition, trust your "gut" and support and guide each individual in recognizing and experiencing something far greater than their personal self.    My approach is an intergrative holistic wellness program that inlcudes the whole self: body, mind, and spritit with a compassionate, present-centered orientation.

From time to time we all  feel stuck in life and might find ourselves  repeating unhealthy patterns of relating to others, When his happens our anxiety and stress levels usually go up and  leave us feeling overwhelmed and depressed. I see many individuals and couples that feel stuck, lost, or lack clarity and feel no since of purpose int their lives. I see many couples facing fertility issues and many  having trouble adjusting to parenthood after the birth of a new baby. Being a parent can be difficult and even more stressful especially if you work full time and are going back to school yourself. These are just some examples of he kinds of problems where my experience and expertise of over 30 years in the mental health field can help you find some relief.When you begin in therapy with me, we open up the possibility of creating long and lasting change to bring you clarity, balance, joy, and peace of mind.
