Honored to have you in my online home.
Of course, I have some official titles too, like my Marriage & Family Therapist License (MFT 45081, if you’d like to know!)
BUT I KNOW THAT NO TITLE CAN CAPTURE WHAT I DO AND HOW I HELP MY CLIENTS.
Life happens to all of us. We face ups and downs. We experience transitions that we just can’t handle on our own. It can be hard to see the truth when we’re blindsided by the obstacles of life.
My goal is to help you find more flow in your linear world. Being in the flow will jolt you into seeing the mundane of your everyday life in technicolor.
Did you just feel your shoulders relax?
Maybe you even let out the breath you didn’t realize you were holding.
I know the feeling.
Whatever transition you’re going through - a rough breakup, a life changing diagnosis, a traumatic experience, or even just the realization that you aren’t happy - it’s going to get better.
As a born healer, I’m able to see into your past and your future and to help you do the same.
You're working on a life lesson right now.
As the youngest of 3, I grew up in the Midwest in a feelings family. I learned how to share my feelings and work through issues (of which we had many) at an early age.
THE FUNNY THING IS, I DIDN’T FOLLOW THE CALLING RIGHT AWAY.
Instead, I became an advertising executive. For five years, I worked in a high-powered business environment even though I knew my future was in healing.
I resisted that inner guide who was calling me…
…even though I’d felt the calling since I was a child.
…even though the call only increased after my near-death experience at age 19.
…even though it was scary to quit my high paying corporate job.
I REACHED THE POINT WHERE I COULDN’T RESIST ANYMORE..
In 2000, I took ownership of my life and became a therapist. I received an MA in Counseling Psychology/Expressive Art Therapy at California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco.
Once I accepted my calling, I was able to fully step into my life as a healer and use the gifts I was born with.
