About Me

I am 52 years old and since the age of 17, I have developed and advanced my intuitive empathic abilities. I have a genius emotional intelligence (EQ) level, which makes me highly sensitive and keenly insightful to the emotions, thoughts, and behavior patterns of my clients as well as being a naturally good listener. Because I have these abilities, I can help my clients process and heal from distress and find more fulfillment in life even through tele-therapy.  

For 35 years, due to my continual obsession with personal growth and developing my intuitive abilities, I have been deeply immersed in intensive spiritual and psychological work. I've continued my education and growth through seminars, workshops, and spiritual retreats-- experiences which have increased my ability to understand ways to enable transformation and change. Through my own "transcendent" experience as a child (a near death experience where I drowned and experienced the afterlife and communicated with God) I received four key learnings of life: "Experience life, just be, love, and be loved." 

Since 2008 I've been in private practice providing phone, video and office sessions using a brief therapy/short term approach. Counseling is a passion of mine and I feel privileged to help my clients. I enjoy working collaboratively to assist them in finding solutions to life's challenges and in learning how to live life more authentically and with greater joy.

I bring warmth and humor to my work and it is important to me to make sure my clients feel safe and valued. And, although I have been told I instill motivation and inspiration in others, I believe one has only to discover the motivation and inspiration which already resides within.

My counseling focuses on matters of the heart and relationship issues. I guide my clients towards self-love, joy, empowerment, motivation, and inspiration while sharing tools and options to create success and change.

​In addition to my private practice, I am the President and Founder of River Rock Counseling, a non profit counseling agency, where I offer pro bono and reduced fee services, as well as a community workshop on "personal boundaries."

​My practice is culturally sensitive, LGBTQI and pet friendly. 

The mastering of technique

I have the ability to choose different schools of thought and put them together in a new way. I will always look for techniques and methods of techniques to find the right one in any given moment. So, I will take things out of juxtaposition and put them together in a different way to get the result you want. This is a real gift I have that benefits my clients.

Handing tools, opening doors

I give my clients the options to create change in their lives. When they want to step through the doors and use the tools I teach them, they have options to create the change in their life. I believe they can and I help empower them by not doing it for them but by showing them how to do it for themselves.
