Well Being & Transformation

Taking care of your emotional well being and focusing on what is in your control are ways to develop a positive relationship with yourself. 

Transformation happens when there is a commitment to what gives your life meaning, attention to what is going well, and an ability to manage unpleasant emotions. I have been studying human behavior, psychology, and communications for over 25 years, and working as a psychotherapist helping people improve their lives for over 18 years.

My goal is to help you live your best life. Using proven methods from both psychotherapy and coaching, we will work together for you to experience greater fulfillment and improved well being.

Follow this daily maintenance plan to start now
  • Ask yourself "What do I need? What helps me?" 
  • Take care of your body through regular movement, rest, relaxation, and good nutrition
  • Connect with others you feel supported by
  • Make friends with the parts of yourself that are critical, cause embarrassment, and keep you stuck in fear. Offer yourself understanding and love.
  • Have fun. It is important, not frivolous and greatly restorative.
