IT’S SUCH A HARD THING TO DO BUT OH, THE INCREDIBLE THINGS THAT START TO HAPPEN WHEN YOU DO—LIKE SOME OF YOUR DREAMS ACTUALLY BECOMING REALITIES.

You plant a seed. You water it. You tend to it. Or maybe you forget all about it. But the one thing I’m pretty sure you don’t do, is rush out the next morning and dig it up to see if it’s growing. Is it growing? Is it growing now? (To be said with the… Continue reading…

What does Elizabeth Gilbert’s announcement have to do with you? Actually, maybe more than you think.

WHEN DID YOU START SETTLING, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY ARE YOU READY FOR MORE?

When did you start settling for less than you wanted? Do you remember? Settling… for most of us happens very very gradually. We can’t place it.

What’s the dream? Why the heck does it matter? And more importantly, what should you do about it? (Part 1)

What’s the dream? What’s your dream? Seriously, I’m not kidding. In business. In play. In relationship. In family. What is it that you want more than anything else?

I DO THINGS
A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY

I’m not “just” a therapist who focuses on the impact your past has on your present, or “just” a coach who focuses on your present and future.

My holistic approach weaves coaching, therapy and positive psychology (the science of happiness) together for maximum impact, so you can start feeling real happiness now, even as you’re clearing out the negative issues and traumas that hold you back.

Whether you need a sounding board or an impartial view, help breaking out of entrenched habits that aren’t serving you anymore, or even deep healing around childhood trauma or some other spiritual, psychological and/or emotional wounding, you’re in the right place.
