“With development of insight, inner tools and resources to empower you, it is possible to gain emotional stability, reduced stress, mental clarity, spiritual awakening, creative problem solving, connection to life's purpose and peace. I work with the whole person, integrating counseling with mindfulness, meditation, coaching, imagery and creative expression. As the benefits of these methods develop, deep levels of knowing, resiliency, wellness, growth and healing become available.”
