For as long as I can remember, I’ve known it was my life purpose and mission to be of service to others as they courageously open to newer, deeper, and ever truer ways of being, relating, feeling, and living in ways that may have given up on, forgotten about or only dreamed of. It is my ongoing commitment to be an instrument of this work that allows pieces of self to be explored and released or reintegrated, and for unfolding to occur in an environment of safety, containment, skill, compassion & experience.
Being able to be a witness, guide, companion, and facilitator on others journey’s is truly an inspiration and source of meaning, depth, and service. I appreciate the depth of courage it takes to truly look very deeply within and the discovery of self that comes from that road taken. I have had success with assisting all kinds of peoples to come into great moment to moment awareness with presence and compassion for who they are. The shifts that happen at these edges, the openings, and the waking up are all are part of a valued and intimate relationship with oneself and others, even right at most the difficult edgy places.
My work with people helps them to be willing to face oneself honestly, to venture deeper into the possibilities for relating in more effective, compassionate, creative, and powerful ways, to not just talk about these things, but to embody them safely in their fullness so that one’s path to clarity, wholeness, and balance about life’s challenges can be realized and fully lived.
Life is journey. Sometimes a quest or an adventure, sometimes a drama, and other times seems like a tragedy. Often there can are be repeating obstacles and roadblocks; personally, interpersonally, and professionally. We can get lost, confused, disillusioned, and wonder what we are doing, why we are here, or why we keep getting stuck, becoming not sure how to move forward or how to respect and honor who we are from our core place of truth and authenticity. It’s precisely these very human experiences that are like the safety road signs on a stormy night, guiding us to that within ourselves which serves as the portal to more of our own authentic self. I honor this journey as it exists in all of us and utilize all its nuances it to help foster growth, change, and whole person transformation.
I am committed to offering psychotherapy and guidance to people from the Westchester County and Fairfield County areas, and coaching and consulting to those areas and beyond. I am dedicated to continue training, education, collaboration, and consultation to further my own growth and continuously deepen and mature my skills. In the recent years I am offering more groups as I believe that not only is the personal work of growth important, but also that the need to come together as community, to listen to one another, and to work together so that we may address the larger picture of integral planetary healing is of significance as well.
