I believe that people have the power to achieve great things. In fact I know this. I also know that life has its moments when we get overwhelmed. These are times when we need support, creative ideas and someone to listen. This is what I do.
My role is to help you connect with your own innate wisdom. As issues unfold, organic solutions begin to emerge. I hold space for change while gently encouraging you to stretch, and explore. What it is that you really want? I encourage you dream big. Working together, we can discover resources to help.
These days you will find me employed as a Program Manager and therapist with Lutheran Community Services Northwest. I also have a private practice in Portland. Process Work, (also known as Process Oriented Psychology) Hypnotherapy and Stress Management are tools I use to assist clients who are having difficulties. My years as a mental health worker, my studies in Philosophy, Metaphysics and Psychology, along with my training in Hypnotherapy, NLP and the HeartMath® System have given me solid skills for helping clients with transitions.
My approach is to bring awareness, compassion, generosity of spirit and deep concern for my clients’ well being. I am honored to assist you with change work and gently hold the trust and responsibility that you place in my hands.
Be Well ~
