Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Have you just found out you have cancer? Has a loved one been diagnosed with a life threatening illness? Is fear, disbelief, shame or anger a constant companion? Did you or a loved one over-drink one more time? Let me help you release the grip of suffering and rediscover your wisdom, truth and joy. I love working with individuals and couples to reduce or eliminate the suffering caused by personal or family health challenges, relationship difficulties, addiction/substance abuse, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, trauma, the effects of childhood abuse, and life transitions. I am especially interested in working with individuals and families living with cancer or other life threatening illnesses.
