To live life in this moment, not consumed with the past or the future.  To feel whole, nurtured and connected.  To sense a satisfying, forward flow on life’s path.  These are my hopes for you and ones that I strive for in myself.  These hopes may show up in different ways.  You feel connected to important people in your life.  You communicate authentically.  You can access your inner wisdom.  Stressors, to include medical concerns, are not road blocks but opportunities to change and grow.  This hope is there for you to discover.  As your psychotherapist or life coach, I can be your guide.  Working together, we develop tools and strategies for you to make the changes you want to make and move forward on your path to living life fully.

When we feel stuck, stressed out, disconnected or overwhelmed, our life path is uphill, exhausting and uncertain.  We all have these moments of transition.   Psychotherapy or Life Coaching is a way to kindle your life forward energy, your way, so you are moving in a direction that feels right for you in a way that feels right for you.

Feeling whole and in touch with all our internal and external resources leads to a more resilient and fulfilling life.  Connecting with others adds to our own wholeness.  As a guide, support, teacher and helper with over 20 years experience, I facilitate this process.

Mindfulness can be a powerful yet gentle platform for change.  Mindfulness is awareness of the moment with special qualities of attention such as respect, curiosity and non-judgment.  You may already have a mindfulness practice and want to apply it in a new way.  Or you are curious about mindfulness and how it can help you.  Combining mindfulness with psychotherapy creates the opportunity to pause and open to the moment-to-moment experience of the heart, mind and body in companionship, with support and guidance.  Mindfulness often brings a richer, calmer quality to relationships.  Link for a free introduction to mindfulness of the breath.  This process of pausing and paying attention is personally rewarding and I feel privileged to assist others in sharing its benefits.

Path with Psychotherapist

Stepping onto a brand-new path is difficult, but not more difficult than remaining in a situation, which is not nurturing to the whole. ― Maya Angelou
