On a foundation of the philosophy and practice of Mindfulness, I often consider myself a "tour guide" for people who choose to jump into the journey of self discovery, healing, growing through life-changes whether these changes are thrust upon them or by choice. I provide professional counseling services as well as instruction and guidance in the practices of meditation, gentle yoga and the daily practice of Mindfulness.
As a licensed therapist, I work with children, teens, women and couples. I utilize play therapy with children and with teens and adults I use traditional methods of cognitive behavioral therapy with a generous peppering of other modalities to create customized plans for recovery, healing and growth for my clients.
Having started out with a specialty in play therapy with preschool age children and parenting coaching, I now provide training for preschool teachers and parents on methods to support the emotional needs of young children. I provide supervision and training for therapist in the process of working toward certification in play therapy and I provide training in professional ethics for other therapists.
My work with women has expanded into offering a full-blown wellness business for women over 40 - both online and in my new center called Wonders Wellness. I offer aromatherapy, meditation, yoga, relaxation training, wellness and weight release programs and products with holistic mind+body wellness and life redesign coaching services.
I'm an author having published numerous articles on the subject of parenting and child development as well as on the subjects of mindfulness practice.
