COUNSELING

I offer an integrative mind-body-heart approach to healing through mindfulness-based counseling.  Our tendency is to turn away from what causes us discomfort, and I teach people skills for being present with and working through difficult emotions and thoughts instead of attempting to escape them. I assist people in becoming more aware of their habitual patterns of feeling, thinking, and behavior that contribute to their suffering and to develop new habits that nurture well-being. When we learn to see ourselves clearly, we have the freedom to change. I support people in working through fear, limiting beliefs, negative self-talk, self-criticism, self-destructive habits, and other blocks that keep them from the life they desire. I believe that we are all capable of change.

My areas of specialty include:

  • women’s issues
  • women entrepreneurs
  • women who were identified as gifted children
  • underachievement
  • low self-esteem and self-confidence
  • stress
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • grief/loss/transition/adjustment difficulties
  • chronic illness
  • chemical sensitivities
  • food/weight issues
  • addictions relapse prevention
  • chronic pain
  • Post-Traumatic Stress (related to traumatic loss, accidents, injuries, medical trauma, childhood trauma, and war)
  • relationship concerns

I offer individual and couples counseling and family counseling for parents and their adult children.
