My philosophy to healing and health is holistic.  I believe that barriers and challenges may occur on more than one level and should be addressed on the levels they impact, be they physical, emotional, mental and/or spiritual.

My quest for knowledge, experiential learning and personal growth led me to an exploration beyond traditional models. I was motivated to learn and experience many healing modalities and spiritual philosophies such as Taoism, shamanism, various forms of meditation plus Breathwork healing techniques. The combination of psychological models with contemporary and ancient knowledge continues to inform and guide my work with others.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, a Certified Life-Coach and a Certified Breathwork Practitioner.  For the past 25 years I have been assisting individuals and groups in accessing their power to heal, transform and achieve personal and professional success.

My formal training as a clinical Social Worker and my extensive experience in working with others in a variety of settings has assisted me in developing an understanding of the human mind and its psychological nature. My therapeutic work with individuals and groups prepared me to understand the complexity of one’s fears, doubts and core beliefs, as well as one’s inner power, wisdom and longing for lasting change, accomplishments and healing.

Psychotherapy: My psychotherapy sessions focus on healing challenges such as anxiety, depression, self-esteem, relationship and career issues.  My sessions focus on the body, mind, heart and spirit connections and the healing of one’s challenges through highly effective techniques that include both verbal exploration, as well as the use of breathing, guided visualizations, movement and creative art processes.

Coaching:  When you hire me as a coach, our sessions focus on achieving outcomes through clarifying your personal and/or professional goals and setting up a plan of action to achieve them.  These sessions include exploration of barriers, as well as formulating a plan to overcome them. The focus of the sessions are on the here- and-now and how to produce the desired results.

Breathwork: When you hire me to facilitate Breathwork sessions, the focus is on a release of energetic blockages to achieving your goals.  The use of a specific and powerful breathing technique enables you to access and identify your energetic patterns, beliefs and emotions that are rooted in your subconscious. The session includes Breathwork as well as the processing of the experience into your daily life so it informs and directly impacts your process of change and produces tangible results.  These sessions are offered through workshop/group settings, as well as private sessions.

My psychotherapy and Breathwork sessions are offered in-person, however coaching can be done via phone, Skype or face-time.  I work with both local, as well as international clients.
