My ideal client values enlightenment. By "enlightenment," I mean that you aim to live in the moment mindfully, being present in heart, mind, body, and spirit. I am best suited to treating depression, trauma, relationship issues, and concerns about life purpose, including work and love. You are ready for positive change in your life. You are ready to let counseling make a positive difference in your life. You are interested in becoming inspired, assertive, embodied and receptive in your life's various contexts. Being truly happy deeply matters to you. You have the time to give this gift to yourself.
I call my work "Enlightened Care" because I truly care, and because I come to the process of caring from an experienced/enlightened place. My care enables clients to access community and government resources, to enhance their personal and interpersonal development, and to engage in fulfilling relationships and invigorating work.
I offer a range of modalities of care: individual counseling, couple's counseling, and family therapy. I also offer body-centered therapy and energy healing. Each client receives the appropriate intervention for their needs at the time. My work is based on my profound belief that happiness is our birthright.
