About My Clients

It's happened again: you've had yet another conversation with your mother that's left you reeling, in a puddle of tears, anxious, and guilty. You know that you're not a child anymore, but somehow your mother still has influence on your life. People always tell you to have better boundaries with your mother, but you're not sure how to accomplish that. All you know is this relationship is taking up too much of your attention, and other areas of your life are suffering.

My Background and Approach

Our relationship with our mothers and fathers have a long lasting impact on us into adulthood, and there is no shame in that. These are highly complex relationships that create the blue print for our inner environment. Let me help you feel through some of the wounds from those relationships, and learn new ways of showing up in relationships. Together we can help you find your way back to an authentic, more fulfilled and empowered YOU. When you come into my office, you are coming into a judgement free zone, where you are no longer alone with your struggles. I will listen to you with compassion to understand you, and your family's story, and we will come up with a plan that involves 1) giving you concrete tools to help you set better boundaries with the important people in your life 2) giving you a taste of what it's like to be fully emotionally supported to heal past childhood hurts.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am passionate about working with clients on these most important relationships. I believe that the impact of the healing has a reverberating impact on the family system, and therefore influences both the older generation, and the future ones in your family. I am also a deeply spiritual person. I believe that the universe is vast and mysterious, and that all people are fundamentally good, but their perspective or actions sometimes becomes distorted. My spirituality has also led me to believe that we are inextricably linked with our beloved Earth, and so we must care for her. Finally, I am a wife and mother of two children who regale me with their creativity, love, and needs! To learn more visit my website.
