As a licensed Marriage and Family therapist, I work with both individuals and couples.
My approach is to see you (and your partner) as a total person, valuing all aspects of body, mind, emotions, relationships and spirit. Through my 30+ years of meditation and inner work, I have learned to go beyond surface appearances and issues, and to connect deeply to the real core of who you are—to recognize that inner divine flame, (even if you don’t, initially), and mirror it back to you. My greatest joy is participating in your process of self-discovery and self-empowerment.
A client wrote me: "Thank you, thank you, thank you for lighting my way! You have helped enrich my life in a way I never imagined! Here I am becoming what I have always wished for--a more aware, grounded and soul-guided person."
A wife in couples counseling emailed: "The past ten months has been an extraordinary journey for me. You helped me to understand myself and my partner better; you helped our relationship and our family tremendously. I want to say thank you sincerely."
Another client wrote: "I want thank you for your help that has changed my world view, so it has changed my life a lot. My new belief makes me more relaxed... better interaction with people. That is a significant change."
I received my masters degree in Counseling Psychology from John F. Kennedy University. My dual orientation in Transpersonal Psychology and Somatic Psychology makes me attend to both the soul-spirit dimension, together with body-based approaches that are informed by findings in neuroscience. I am also trained in EMDR, a healing modality that uses right-left brain integration to process psychological trauma.
My style is lively, interactive and collaborative—very engaged with you in a partnership-for-transformation. I view therapy not just as a healing process, but also as a creative enterprise where we both co-create a more satisfying way of your being in the world. I have a great sense of humor and encourage clients to have fun in their lives.
