Relationship Support

Being seen, heard and understood is essential for the development of our authentic selves. If we are immersed in an environment that consistently fails to acknowledge us for who we are, we build walls to protect ourselves from the blows of this non-empathic environment.

Grief & Loss Support

Grief & Loss Support

When someone we hold dear becomes terminally ill or passes away, a very powerful process unfolds within us. This grieving process is unique for each of us, but it is usually very painful – often unbearably so.

Pain Management

Pain Management

When people are in pain, they tend to turn to medical doctors. And that is an important first step. But if the medical doctors can’t find a cause for the pain – or even if they can – it is helpful to know that there are

Anxiety /OCD

Anxiety /OCD

When your child is overwhelmed by worry, it can have a tremendous impact on your life, as their loving parent. Worry sets off the fight or flight response – not only in our children, but also in us – as the adoring parent – as we witness our child get overtaken by a big wave of worry!

High Sensitivity

High Sensitivity

Many parents don’t want to label their children. This comes from a place of love, and a desire to bear witness to the unique human being your child is. However, it can be helpful to understand your child’s basic temperament, especially if you have a child with high sensitivity,

Defiance

Defiance

Over the years, I have learned that defiant children are crying out for help. Their off-track behavior is a signal to us, the loving adults in their lives, that there are some unsolved problems which are causing them a great deal of tension that need to be addressed.

Power Struggles

Power Struggles

Power struggles between parent and child are challenging for everyone – the parent, the child and the innocent bystanders who are witnessing the unpleasant and often highly charged dynamic.

Sibling Issues

When siblings fight, it tends to trigger us as parents. Our emotional brain goes on red alert and tells us to stop this bickering NOW! That is natural – we all get triggered at times. But it is important to acknowledge that we do have choices in those moments, and what we do when we are triggered matters a great deal.

Philosophy

“Be kind. Everyone you meet is fighting a difficult battle.” – Plato

We are all born whole. Certain life circumstances we encounter, however, can cause us to lose touch with essential aspects of ourselves, and can lead us far away from who we really are.

Drawing upon a wealth of modalities, including client-centered, somatic and mindfulness-based interventions, I guide clients in accessing their inner wisdom and support them in finding their way back home to themselves. I offer a warm, loving and compassionate presence as I help people move in the directions that are most meaningful and satisfying to them.
