Seeking any kind of support, especially when you feel vulnerable, and even more so when you’re used to being strong, independent, and usually the person other people go to for support is a big step.
This is why I begin with an initial consultation so you can evaluate if I am the right fit for you. I also share some information here about who I work with so you can determine even at this stage if you’d like to connect with me further.
The individuals I work with are very often helpers, healers, creatives, visionaries, and/or leaders. Being authentic and on purpose matters to them deeply.
They are growth-oriented and are yearning for greater meaning, passion, and fulfillment in their work, relationships, community and service to the world…but (!) something has turned their world upside down and they’re feeling energetically and emotionally blocked, as well as disconnected from themselves and a larger sense purpose.
Many of my clients are also experiencing the painful and disorienting effects of trauma, either recent or in their past, and are yearning deeply to heal and restore a sense of wholeness and peace. Because I am trained both as a Clinical Social Worker as well as a Certified Coach, I have the depth of training and skills to hold the space for a broad spectrum of issues, and so this is a safe and supportive space in which to address even the toughest of life’s challenges.
All of the people I work with want help to navigate the choppy waters they find themselves in so they come out stronger on the other side, and don’t lose the opportunity to grow, evolve and transform into the next best iteration of themselves in the process.
They also want to be supported in a way that acknowledges their innate strengths and skills and empowers them to engage these abilities while also developing new ones.
My clients are also typically intuitive, insightful, creative thinkers. They are curious and open to new ideas, practices, and points of view.
They tend also to be high people who like to get things done and see progress.
They appreciate a good laugh along the way, and humor in the right dose helps to give them perspective and keep them in touch with the lighter side of life that exists alongside their challenges.
Some of the issues that precipitate seeking support include:
Losing a sense of meaning, direction, and purpose in life & work
Recovering from physical and/or emotional trauma to self or loved one
Adjusting to illness and/or injury
Working through losses such as separation/divorce, children leaving home, or death of a loved one
Feeling a nagging deep sense that there’s something more at their core that is wanting to emerge and be expressed, but they’re not sure what that is or how to bring it forward.
Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” ~ James Baldwin
This work goes well beyond setting goals and staying motivated to move forward.
You’ve probably tried this already and there’s a reason why it’s not enough… This work is about going deep, getting to the heart and essence of you, releasing blockages, re-vitalizing your core energy, and re-visioning your path and future.
We will excavate and bring forward your core strengths, gifts, and skills so you can transform the pain and “stuck-ness” into inspiring new opportunities and ways of being alive and vibrant in the world again.
You’re also more than just your thoughts and emotions…you are made of body, spirit, and soul, and so we will address whatever areas of your life are most in need of balance so you can move forward firing on all cylinders.
We will also have some fun, as this is a significant chapter in your life journey and it’s always helpful to include a sense of playfulness, curiosity, and good humor on any adventure of self-discovery.
Few things light me up more than seeing my clients re-connect to their inner spark and a sense of possibility, strength, confidence and purpose…
If you resonate with this and you’re feeling the call to receive guidance and support on the path of creating greater peace of mind, purpose, clarity, stability, energy, vibrancy and joy on the other side of life’s challenges and transitions, then I invite you to contact me for a 60-75 minute initial consultation to see if I’m the right person to provide the support you desire.

Your Ancestors' Past Emotional Pain is Stored Within Your DNA

Scientists now understand how the genetics of your ancestors affect your physical, emotional and mental behavior and patterns. Trauma experienced by earlier generations can influence the structure of our genes, making them more likely to “switch on” negative responses to stress and trauma.
