I Can Help You Feel Better
Maximize Your Potential
I will help you bring forth your natural well-being to improve your experience of life and your relationships. My approach to counseling is educational and I will provide many resources to deepen your understanding of ther inside-out nature of life. This approach, sometimes referred to as "health realization," guides clients/students toward insights since positive and sustainable change occurs automatically through insight. There is no need to practice techniques or strategies. Insights last a lifetime and help you to bounce back quicker from difficult situations regardless of your situation or circumstances.

It all begins with a simple conversation to uncover the ways in which you've been thinking that may be hidden in your blind spot but is getting in the way of a fulfilling life.

I also provide coaching sessions for business executives and work teams to help maximize individual potential and team performance.
