I have spent the majority of my life in personal growth and therapeutic pursuits. I am profoundly committed to this practice -- not only for myself, since it has improved my life immensely, but as a means of deepening your life experience.
“Suffering without catharsis is nothing but wasted pain. And you should never waste your pain, never waste your suffering. It’s powerful stuff, the most powerful stuff there is. Use it. Transform from it. Learn. Grow. Be better.”-Jim MacLaren via Elizabeth Gilbert
I am grateful to be able to facilitate professionally for others what I do personally for myself. I believe that life is short and that we are each responsible to make ours the most joyful, vibrant experience that we can.

As an Imago therapist I am uniquely able to assist you with your partnerships and to help you improve your communication with any loved one, friend, family member or co-worker. My use of inner child work or “inner adult work” can help you learn to vastly improve your self-nurturing and self-care, increasing your independence as well as your ability to relate to others in healthy ways.
