Do you feel like you’ve been living the life someone else wanted for you, but not the one you want for yourself?

My approach with my clients typically starts with a practice of learning to forgive, others for their demands, and yourself for getting “lost” and yielding to those demands. Together, we explore that journey, what has happened and why, and how to get out of your own way and begin to live the life you want.

My process is based upon the premise that you have your own innate wisdom.  I do not have your answers.  You do. My goal is to hold the vision of your true power and the certainty that you can access it. I help you to uncover your answers which you recognize immediately when you discover them. 

That is where your freedom, your oxygen and your life is.  It resonates immediately, and it is visceral.  It is a mind, body and soul connection that is powerful, inescapable and defies explanation.

 

Credentials & Experience:
