Does this sound like you? My clients are individuals and couples dealing with trauma, different kinds of loss, and long-held negative beliefs and patterns like perfectionism, people pleasing, procrastination. Smart and creative, too often they feel blocked and stuck like super glue. They may have tried tons of things that haven't worked so well and are on the verge of thinking that nothing will really change: themselves, the relationship, the whole shebang. These folks often feel different, like outsiders. Self-acceptance and self love might seem as impossible as climbing Mt. Everest.
But it's not. In fact, challenge and adversity are often incredible doorways to powerful, positive changes. But you don't need to go it alone. Having a guide is much easier and more enjoyable.
How I work: As a coach and therapist with over 35 years of experience, I've helped hundreds turn fear and self doubt into clarity and freedom through powerful body-mind tools like EMDR, Brainspotting, and IADC (a form of grief release work). I also have a special superpower. It's easy for me to see others' strengths and potential where they have forgotten.
As an adjunct to the above, I also offer two great options for those seeking more structure.
Dying2Live is a self-paced 12 module course to help you if you're feeling lost, at a crossroads. Fed up with settling for the “not-so-great” or waiting until “one day when?” Know that you've got to change something, that there's got to be more? By confronting the ultimate deadline you'll start living with more clarity, joy, and love for yourself and others.
Mental Fitness for Life is ideally suited for those wanting to quickly intercept self-sabotaging thoughts and patterns, in simple yet powerful ways that last. A three-month program combining coaching with an innovative app that deepens practice and progress between sessions.
To end on a personal note: I've lost loved ones and deeply grieved. I almost lost my life in a split moment. I was lucky. It woke me up to living more fully and fearlessly. As a self-published author who wrote a book about hiking the Israel Trail with my family for charity, I know about going way beyond comfort zones to fulfill a dream. Too many live like there's all the time in the world and end up with regrets and missed opportunities. Think we might be a good fit? Don't wait to appreciate your one wild and precious life.

Body-Mind PsychotherapyBody-mind psychotherapy is an integrative approach to psychological treatment that draws from both psychotherapeutic and somatic/body-based approaches. It emphasizes the interconnection between physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual aspects of being. This approach seeks to help individuals explore how physical sensations, emotions, thoughts and beliefs influence their behavior and well-being. Through this exploration, individuals can gain insight into how the body and mind interact to create patterns of behavior, and how those patterns can be changed to promote healing and wellness.
Brainspotting (BSP)Brainspotting is a form of psychotherapy that uses eye positioning and body-based approaches to help people identify, process, and release emotional and physical distress. It is based on the idea that the body and mind are interconnected and that certain eye positions can help access and release stuck, unresolved emotions. Practitioners help clients reprocess negative events and retrain emotional reactions by guiding clients’ eyes, with a pointer, across their field of vision to find “brainspots”. Brainspots are eye positions that activate a painful emotion or trauma. Through the use of bilateral sound and/or vibration, the therapist helps the client to access and process difficult or traumatic memories and emotions, leading to lasting and positive changes in behavior and well-being.
DreamworkModern dreamwork asserts that the only person that can make meaning of their dream is the dreamer, which is what separates dreamwork from dream interpretation. In dreamwork, the practitioner is a guide in the exploration of the dream, with the client making meaning of the dream for themselves. The reason the practitioner is only a guide is because thoughts, emotions, as well as meaning of symbols are deeply personal and subjective. Dreams can be used to uncover hidden feelings and beliefs, develop self-awareness, and gain insight into problems and potential solutions. Dreamwork is often paired with other therapeutic modalities.
Emotional Freedom TechniqueEmotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is an alternative therapy for emotional and physical distress. It is based on the idea that the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy system. EFT is a form of psychological acupressure, in which a combination of physical tapping and verbal affirmations are used to help the body release the emotional and physical distress.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR)Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy treatment that was originally designed to alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories. It uses a structured approach to address the past events that may be causing current distress, and uses bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements, to activate different neural networks in the brain in order to reduce symptoms of trauma. EMDR has been found to be effective for a wide range of mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, and PTSD.
Holistic PsychotherapyHolistic psychotherapy emphasizes the individual's interconnectedness between the individual's physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects and views them as inseparable components of a single holistic system. Holistic psychotherapy focuses on understanding how these components interact and affect a person’s wellbeing. The goal of holistic psychotherapy is to create a sense of wholeness and harmony within the individual, and to foster self-awareness and self-care. Holistic practitioners use a variety of approaches, including traditional talk therapy, mindfulness practices, and body-based therapies like movement therapy. They also may incorporate nutrition, physical activity, and other lifestyle factors into treatment plans.
